Last London post today, guys!! I know online content creation (not that I’m a ~content creator~* trying to be the next Chiara Ferragni or anything, but like…are we not all content creators on the interwebz?) focuses so much on speed and getting shit out immediately, so I feel a bit guilty for taking so long to finish this/do this. But I read an article from the New York Times where the author consumed his news through print newspapers rather than, say, Facebook or the News app on his phone, and it got me thinking that perhaps speed is not of the utmost importance. Sitting here and looking at these London photos a year later allows me some more thought and care with these posts, in a way that I think could easily be lost if I were rushing to meet a deadline – especially because this is a hobby blog and not a business blog. My point, I guess, is that I feel gross for dragging out my London posts, but maybe I shouldn’t; maybe it’s actually a good thing..?
But I digress! Today we are heading to two more museums: the Wellcome Collection (a science museum, but, ah, how do I say this – a cooler one than regular science museums, like Regina George’s cool mom) and the British Library (not technically a museum, but like, I didn’t go there to borrow books, I went there to stare at the Magna Carta).
So this is the Wellcome Collection, so-called because it’s Henry Wellcome’s collection of stuff. He was a 19th century pharmaceutical entrepreneur and a big collector of medical artifacts and artwork. The Wellcome Collection explores the connection between medicine, science, art, and life, and is thus a hell of a lot more interesting for someone like me, who gets a bit bored and confused walking through all the engines or pendulums or whatever at the Science Museum.
