Hi Weider Earth!
I'm Yulran, also @Yulran :they_them:
I mostly talk about my daily life as a PhD student in (aka clumsy experimentalist) or slowly figuring out gender stuff. Sometimes I make , usually related to .
I boost and cool things. I've always liked being the weird one so I figured here would be a nice home.

I really like the way this gives someone both a clear understanding of what situations it applies to and the appropriate responses. would have loved to have something like this for social situations as a kid.

Good morning! As almost every week, I'm waiting for therapy in front of the Elbe and I'm enjoying it.

I was yesterday by the eye doctor and they put some drops in my eyes that made me see blurry, and when I could finally see the stuff on my desk I found this note ๐Ÿ’š

And I want to share it with all of you because all of you deserve to read that!

So I made a thing.

The green on this graph shows where chlorophyll b absorbs (the type mostly used by plants). You can see it catches light in two places. Near 450nm (the blue end of the spectrum) and around 650nm (in the red).

The two lines show the wavelengths emitted by LED lights. Blue is cool white and red is warm white. Both have a spike in emission around chlorophyll's blue absorption and broad emission over the red absorption.

In other words, this is why houseplants like LED lighting!

Heyโ€ฆ I'm kind of in the mood of maybe trying to read something in French again. I'm looking for something short (novella length at most) and likeโ€ฆ the easiest language you can find out in the wild (my vocabulary is pretty limited and I forgot most grammar things, I'm really hoping for authors who make "simple and clear" their style). Any genre is fine, but the more light-hearted, the more likely I am to stay motivated. Please tell me if you know something like that :teal_heart:

Good [time in your timezone]! Outside is a sunny 15ยฐC, I'm on my way to my supervisor's to hang out at the playground, I'm almost too warm in my awesome new gender-neutral tank top, and I globally feel like it's a nice summer day.
Bonus: a fluffy visitor in front of my flat.

It's a sunny day and I'm outside ๐Ÿ’š

It's a little unsettling to look at relatively high-res photographs of people who never existed. :ghost_gif:

Got inspired by how my officemate drew me this afternoon so I did a small self-portrait where I look a bit less grumpy.
I'm not usually grumpy! Well, not that grumpy!

Are you tired? Is it hard for you to focus? Do you want to cry any time you think about the future?
That's #Capitalism.
