It was ridiculously hot this weekend, so slip on sandals and clothes that breath were crucial for enjoying the weather. There's nothing comfortable about gazing up at clear skies and never-ending sunshine while sweating and panting away. Along with the theme of "Let the Sunshine In," I let free my inner hippie.... sartorially. I definitely don't have it in my to embody the free-living souls of the 60s, or really of any generation.
Completely unrelated, random, life tid-bit: last week in my life sciences class, we completed a mtDNA sequencing lab (mtDNA= mitochondrial DNA; to read more about what this is, how it works, why it's preferred over nuclear DNA, etc. click here). According to the current database, I was linked to people of Japanese and Finnish descent, and belong to haplogroup W. After doing some research I learned that some Northern Indians belong to the W haplogroup, so personal paradigm shift avoided. In addition, I learned only about 1-2% of the world's population belongs to haplogroup W, so I felt like a pretty unique snowflake.
