Almost done with finals…

May 2nd, 2009 1 Comment

I am taking three classes right now. It’s too many. The good news is, after my two finals on Tuesday I’ll be all done. I’m really looking forwards to only taking one class at a time from now on, so that I’m not trying to d so many different things at once. Boulder has us […]


Pie Day

April 14th, 2009 No Comments

Every Tuesday is Pie Day, and I have pie for breakfast. The Walnut Cafe offers at least five different kinds for 2.50 a slice on Pie Day. It’s pretty much the highlight of my week. Today I had apple, but peach-blueberry is my favorite. How did this get started? I was eating breakfast there one […]


Consuming our way to a better world

February 22nd, 2009 No Comments

It’s nice to feel like you are making the world a better place. Especially if it doesn’t involve much extra work. For example, riding your bike to work or preferentially buying local produce. Supporting businesses who give a portion of their money to charity or encourage sustainable farming practices. Bringing reusable containers and bags to […]


The finer things in life

I want to share a culinary discovery with you all. Picture in your mind’s eye a typical banana split. Drizzled chocolate syrup, bananas, chopped nuts, whipped cream . . . delicious. Too bad ice cream is only a sometimes food. I can’t eat ice cream every day, so I started to experiment with ice cream […]


The Switch

This pretty much sums up my perspective on computing four and a half years ago: Merits of the PowerBook G4 were: Shiny Ease of use Moderate Unix goodness Durable Still shiny This winter I bought a new laptop. I wanted something small with good battery life. I really liked the Lenovo x200s (it’s an x300 […]


Nature attacks!

January 11th, 2009 No Comments

Colorado is Xtreme. It’s covered in sharp pointy rocks and there are large animals that want to eat me. The air is so dry I have to carry a water bottle with me everywhere, and there is hardly any atmosphere to shield me from the sun’s insane brightness. Also, it’s very windy. Several days of […]


Go Cavs!

December 24th, 2008 No Comments

Somehow while I wasn’t paying attention a few year ago, the Cleveland Cavaliers became a kickass basketball team. I had so much fun watching them on TV last year. Yesterday, I got to go see them in person! My family bought some tickets from a bunch of season ticket holders who couldn’t make it, so […]


Home for the holidays

December 22nd, 2008 No Comments

I’m back in Ohio for a few weeks. It feels good to be home. I get to relax and spend some time with my family, and of course eat insane amounts of delicious food. Now that I think about it, vacationing to awesome exotic adventurous places always leaves me exhausted instead of refreshed when I […]

I spent this Thanksgiving here in Boulder. My family came up to my aunt’s house and we had a feast. Here’s a picture of Blue, my aunt’s new dog, with her favorite octopus: We all spent most of Thanksgiving playing with Blue, who was adopted from a greyhound racetrack. Apparently an in-shape greyhound can get […]


Full circle

November 26th, 2008 No Comments

I’ve been doing some thinking about education lately. After all, how cool is it that I get paid to go to school right now? In many other fields, grad students have to pay their way through a PhD by waiting tables or begging their parents for financial support. I’ve got a sweet deal. One of […]
