You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.

Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone — profusely. But don’t apologize for being who you are.

Part 2/? of my trip to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Part one is here! Once again, I don’t have provenances for any of these, and can’t guarantee the accuracy of the names, though I’ve done my best in the image captions! If you know better, please let me know and I’ll be sure to update it as needed.
