Lost Soul in KiwiLand

Biologist Nurse Nomad Free Spirit

Everyday is an adventure. Live it like it's your last.

  • I remember the day you told me you were leaving
    I remember the make-up running down your face
    And the dreams you left behind you didn’t need them
    Like every single wish we ever made
    I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
    And forget about the stupid little things
    Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
    And the memories I never can escape

    'Cause I'm not fine at all

    The pictures that you sent me they’re still living in my phone
    I’ll admit I like to see them, I’ll admit I feel alone
    And all my friends keep asking why I’m not around

    It hurts to know you’re happy, yeah, it hurts that you’ve moved on
    It’s hard to hear your name when I haven’t seen you in so long

    It’s like we never happened, was it just a lie?
    If what we had was real, how could you be fine?

    'Cause I'm not fine at all

    I remember the day you told me you were leaving
    I remember the make-up running down your face
    And the dreams you left behind you didn’t need them
    Like every single wish we ever made
    I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
    And forget about the stupid little things
    Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
    And the memories I never can escape

  • All I hear is raindrops falling on the rooftop


    Tell me why’d you have to go?

    Coz today, I’m officially missing you

    in an effort to relocate critically endangered black rhinos to areas better able to protect and grow the population, the black rhino range expansion project briefly flies the animals, blindfolded and tranquilized, from otherwise inaccessible south african terrain to a waiting truck that will drive them to their new home.

    from a population that used to number in the hundreds of thousands only a century ago, less than 5,000 black rhinos now remain. there are three recognized subspecies of the black rhino. there were four, but the west african black rhino became officially extinct last year. photos by green renaissance, btv and the wwf

    Plants that fight cancer

    This picture shows Catharanthus roseus (Madagascar periwinkle) alongside the structure of vinblastine, an alkaloid natural product.

    This pretty plant makes hundreds of alkaloid natural products which are a rich resource for a wide range of applications, including the development of pharmaceuticals, insecticides and biomaterials.

    Natural products from this plant have already given us some very important cancer-fighting medicines, for instance vinblastine is one of the compounds used in chemo-therapy.

    Read more about BBSRC-funded scientists who are studying this plant and developing new industrial applications for the natural products.

    When cells apoptose, they appear to collapse, forming small blebs and vesicles called apoptotic bodies. Here, an apoptotic HeLa cell (center) sits among its healthy and dividing counterparts, revealing a striking collection of blebs on its surface. Although HeLa cells are the workhorse of many in vitro cell biological experiments, they are far from normal. They are propagated from a cervical tumor and contain an aberrant genome with multiple copies of several human chromosomes, some of which also carry papilloma viral genes.

  • Anger and Love

    I hate you for making me feel special
    Though you really don’t intend to

    I hate you for being always there for me
    Though you just happen to

    I hate you for seeing myself in you
    Though I never really meant to

    I hate everything that you are
    Though everything you are brings me so much joy

    I hate that I met you
    I hate that I fell for you
    I hate that you and me can never make it through
    I just hate loving you
    So where would that lead me to?

    Planets of Our Solar System

    Our solar system officially has eight planets and one star: the Sun. The discovery of an object larger than Pluto in 2005 rekindled the debate over whether such objects, belonging to the Kuiper Belt – a collection of icy bodies located beyond Neptune – should be called planets. Pluto and other large members of the Kuiper Belt are now considered “dwarf planets.”
