Apparently I've been living under a stone...

Today in 1799, Pierre-Francois Bouchard discovered the Rosetta Stone. It was a "basalt tablet...[that] provided the key to the decipherment of Egyptian hieroglyphics."
This amazes me because when I think of Rosetta Stone, I just think of the language learning software. I had no idea that it was a real stone.

This is what I wore yesterday. The sunlight brightened the shirt a lot in the 2nd photo. My t-shirt is lilac-colored, and says "Boston" on it. I wore it over a dress with white sneakers.

I remember seeing the Rosetta clone in the first room of the British Museum when I was younger and being in absolute awe. So crazy to think how it completely changed the way we saw old languages! And loving the lilac t-shirt :)

We are the two sides of the same coin. I didn't know it was also a learning software. So you see, with both our knowlegdes we would have gotten there :D

So we used the Rosetta stone to decipher languages....what if how we deciphered the Rosetta stone was wrong??? That would be my Psych teacher..... Getting too deep for me ;)

I didn't know about the Rosetta Stone being a type learning software! So there you go, I'm always learning something new :) Cool t-shirt btw!
