I tried and finished. Not my cup of tea. The sciences were NOT my subject of choice so it was a struggle from beginning to end to stay engaged.
The biggest take away for me was the scale of life in general. We, as humans, are so minute in the grand scheme of things. My favorite moments in life come in moments when I’m reminded of this – like when I’m standing on top of the Grand Canyon or a whale is breaching in front of our raft in the middle of the ocean. To think that the galaxy and our place in it is light years away from my own milestone moments is immensely humbling.
