i think winter makes me depressed because i can only be productive during daylight hours. darkness is reserved for netflix, alcohol, and baths. 

it’s 5 o’clock. it’s dark. i pour myself a drink and commence season 4 of criminal minds. this is the end.

As a 19-year-old sophomore at Stanford, Elizabeth Holmes decided to transform diagnostic medicine so she dropped out of college and used her tuition money to start her own company, Theranos. Ten years later, Holmes, pictured here holding a micro-vial, is on the cutting edge of medical technology — her new blood testing method allows hundreds of tests to be run using only a few drops of blood. And, Holmes’ methods are cheaper, faster, more accurate, and less invasive than conventional methods which often require a separate vial of blood for every test.

As Holmes told Wired.com earlier this year, “I started this company because I wanted to spend my life changing our health care system. When someone you love gets really sick, most of the time when you find out, it’s too late to be able to do something about it. It’s heartbreaking… We wanted to make actionable health information accessible to people everywhere at the time it matters most. That means two things: being able to detect conditions in time to do something about them and providing access to information that can empower people to improve their lives.”

Reasons you should adore Elizabeth Holmes:

  • She is featured as Forbes’ youngest self-made woman billionaire.
  • Her tests will revolutionize the public health world as we know it; Making diagnostic testing accessible and affordable for more people (and potentially saving Medicare and Medicaid ~$100 billion each over the next decade). (x)
  • She is a coauthor on 82 US and 189 foreign patent applications. (x)
  • Her fear of needles served as a motivator for launching Theranos. (x)

Fantastic! <3

I had a series of tests run at the annual company Health Fair last week. It used her technology. A finger prick. Not an elbow stick. And a tiny pipette of blood - I think I’ve bled more from TATTOOS.

And cutting myself in the kitchen.

This woman is the Stephen Hawking of medical technology. (Or Stephen Hawking is the Elizabeth Holmes of astropysics.)

"To hold our tongues when everyone is gossiping, to smile without hostility at people and institutions, to compensate for the shortage of love in the world with more love in small, private matters; to be more faithful in our work, to show greater patience, to forgo the cheap revenge obtainable from mockery and criticism: all these are things we can do."
—Hermann Hesse (via bbstxxx)

Anonymous: Do you want to have children? If yes, do you worry about them inheriting mental and emotional disorders? (I'm bipolar as well).

maybe one when i’m older, but maybe not. that is something that would mildly concern me, but if i wanted to do it, it’s not like that would stop me.


Anonymous: What age do you think you'll want to get married?

honestly i’m not sure that i ever want to do that. marriage is a hoax bred on insecurity and designed to deny the fact that people are constantly growing and changing.

but i would be down to have a solid we-love-each-other-a-lot reception involving eating and drinking and dancing. i’d be ready to do that right now.
