The Untethered Soul, by Michael Singer brought me so much peace. It’s a must read for everyone but helps especially if you struggle with anxiety, depression or if you just have a hard time dealing with the suffering that goes on in this world. PS if you scroll through these pics real quick it kinda looks like I’m farting 🍑🎶 #haveacozysunday 👋🏽
PLASTIC FREE 🚫 in attempt to transition into a plastic free lifestyle , I have been using reusable eco bags from @ever.eco. Not only is it better for the environment, it also keeps my veggies fresher compared to plastic bags as it breathable 🙌 it’s a win win if you ask me!

'Match Madness: Nature Edition'
Since the NCAA March Madness College basketball tournaments are in full swing, I thought why not do a little tournament of my own featuring plants, animals, and one very pink lake!
There are 16 seeds to be featured in the tournament. The seeding is based on average engagement received during each post's initial feature. The posts will go head to head in the following format:
16 v. 1, 15 v. 2, 14 v. 3, 13 v. 4, 12 v. 5, 11 v. 6, 10 v. 7, 9 v, 8.
And without further delay, the seeds:
#1 Goblin Shark
#2 Galapagos marine Iguana
#3 Costa Rican Glass Frog
#4 Arcella gandalfi (amoeba)
#5 Lake Hillier
#6 Emerald Glass Frog
#7 Golden Jewel Beetle
#8 Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Caterpillar
#9 Pitcher Plant
#10 Rafflesia (flower)
#11 Guinea Fowl Puffer Fish
#13 Loch's Chromodoris
#14 Red-lipped Batfish
#15 Pallas's Cat (manul)
#16 Death's Face Hawkmoth
The bracket can be seen in the next slide ➡️ __________
On Tuesday, voting will begin with the 16 seed Hawkmoth v. the number one seed Goblin shark. The winner of this matchup will move on to face the winners of the other meetings until we are eventually left with one winning post. This winner will get a second post from a new narrative perspective.
And now the really fun part! From now until the story voting begins on Tuesday, you can predict the post you think will win the tournament. You can select one post out of the 16 posts and comment your winner down below! Will you go with the favorite or pick an upset? You can refer to my previous nature posts to read up on which post you'd like to pick to go all the way. Those who guess the overall tournament winner correctly will be entered into a random number generator raffle to win your choice of my 'Stay Metal' Chemistry Pins! I hope everyone has a great time with this and may the odds be ever in your favor! #dan_the_biology_man ##giveaway#contest#tournament#microbiology#animals#plants#insects#Pokemon#pingame#biology#galapagos#marinelife#fishes
