About Grass

Hi! My name is Grass and I’m a Geologist at your service. Beside me is a four-decade old petrographic microscope I’ve used for analyzing thousands of rocks in thin sections – most of them volcanic rocks obtained from 3 kilometers below earth’s surface.

Here are things about me:

I’m a self-confessed introvert. I find myself feeling at peace when surrounded with books, art materials, and my family.

I love singing too.

This is me as Cosette.

And this is me as Susan in the play, Tick! Tick! Boom!

I love acting, doing theatrical acts at home, for my kids’ amusement. The only time I did an actual theatrical performance on a stage in front of a sizable audience was in 2011 during our stage camp. It is yet to happen again (maybe once they consider an asian Elphaba for the next Wicked).

I love creating with my hands. When I have extra time in my hands, I paint using watercolors, gouache, pastels, and now I am discovering oil medium as well. I also sometimes conduct free art and science classes for homeschooling kids, you will find our classes in our family’s YouTube channel.

Science is, and always will be, my favorite subject, that’s why I took up Geology in college. Although not a geologist, I think Albert Einstein is brilliant, and Physics is my second love. I guess this is one of the reasons why I am currently taking my MS in Science. I have a Geology problem that need Physics solution. I’ll post about my thesis once I’m done with it.

Teaching science has become a personal advocacy. My Geology Tours was born out of this love for teaching science especially to fellow homeschooling families. Although the tours are currently on-hold due to pandemic, I still wish to resume doing this someday for the kids to have a hands-on appreciation of earth science.

I made this blog because I tend to express myself better through writing. If you happen to meet me in person and I looked snob, my apologies, in advance. I swear it’s just the eyebrows and my resting bitch face. Tell me a few jokes and your life story and you’ll find good listener in me. We’d probably be friends for life too!

Finally, these two are the very reason why every day is a miracle. I love them both so much. Like me, they love the beach and the great outdoors too!
