Elly's MONTHLY Mood 🐧 #5
Walmart trip, CAC internship, & my painting
Welcome to Elly's Monthly Mood!
This is (the longer version of) me documenting what I learn, love, and do, and I hope you enjoy your stay ☺️
3 Updates 🧍🏻♀️
1. Walmart Trip!
I lowkey never been to a Walmart before, so Vik and I (Aastha + Anand aren’t in The 6ix 😔) made a trip to live the experience.
You will 100% hear more funky fresh updates as the Challenge progresses, but I’ve gotten two takeaways thus far:
Help others (and good things will come… hopefully)
First-hand experience >
I will expand more on this in next week(s) newsletters, so stay tuned 🌝
2. Thorium Doodle Article
I wanted to write (or, more accurately, draw) another doodle article, but I couldn’t figure out what to draw.
And then I did: THORium.
Researchers are looking into thorium-based nuclear power to replace uranium.
Even though it’s not exactly related to Thor, it’s still pretty badass.
For example: there’s 3x more thorium than uranium globally, AND it generates up to two orders of magnitude LESS nuclear waste. Yeah.
I’m planning on publishing it this next week (or at least in the next few…) so stay tuned 😎
3. Cellular Agriculture Canada Internship
Speaking of doodle articles… do you remember the first one I did on lab-grown meat? (Here’s your refresher if not🖖🏻)
After a series of events, I’m now a social media intern at Cellular Agriculture Canada.
Check out @cellagcanada on Instagram for what I’ve been working on recently 🤲🏻
2 Favs 🤍
1. My English Teacher (but actually Epictetus)
“The more we value things outside our control, the less control we have.”
2. Dr. Chatterjee in Feel Better in 5
“If we talked to others the way we talked to ourselves, we wouldn’t be able to go a day without being yelled at or smacked.”
Next time you bury yourself in words of discouragement, ask yourself if you would say this to someone you genuinely care about.
And then think: do you genuinely care about yourself?
He also has the best podcast for the health/wellbeing gang 🤝
1 Progress Shot (well, video) 🖌
🆒 video I made showing you guys the process of my painting ft. our fav Bruno Mars
Any opinions on anything? Drop some words 💁🏻♀️
Elly's Monday Mood comes out weekly, so be hyped for the next one 🤞🏻
