I Am Thankful...

I considered not writing this post, because I feel like Thanksgiving blog/Facebook posts are pretty clich├ęd.

But, I also think that we don't focus enough on how blessed we are. And I definitely don't give thanks often enough. So here goes.

I am thankful for my parents ...

"First" Post

Once again, this is my "first" post.

Both of my blogs are now generated with Pelican and are auto publishing, which brings the friction cost of blogging to a whole new low for me. This time, I'm going to actually blog from time to time! (You can insert some ...

Another Beginning

School starts again tomorrow. OK, well, I actually don't have classes until Tuesday, but the semester officially starts.

It should be an interesting semester. I only have one in-person class, and 3 online courses. I'm getting a bunch of my general ed out of the way this semester ...

New Habits

I recently saved an article to Instapaper.

I finally got around to reading it today. And it's really good! It's all about creating habits rather than specific goals for change, and letting the change happen as a result of the habits. It talks about only focusing on a ...

Motivation

What motivates us?

I've pondered that question a fair bit lately, as I've struggled to motivate myself to take on one project or another. On the one hand, it's summer, and after four straight semesters of full classloads, I feel like I should have a break. At ...

Bonfires and Algorithms

I think the hardest part about blogging is finding subjects about which to write.

Once I get started on a subject, it's pretty straightforward. I'm a pretty decent rambler. It's actual the same with normal conversation -- once we're talking about something, I can carry on a ...

Finals are Finally Finished!

The interesting thing is that that title is not true. But it's still how I'm feeling -- I'm finished with the final projects for both CS4962 (Mobile Programming) and CS3505 (Software Practice 2), as well as my algorithms (CS4150) final. With only Physics left, I might as well ...
