counting backwards [seven years]

tidepooling with my summer intern cohort!

I’ve written a lot of posts over the years about how the posts I write today may very well be terrible in the distant (or near) future simply because of individual growth over time. Lately, I’ve been grappling with the decision to leave my old writing up on this website, available for any and all eyes—do I really like that my current reflections about science, media, and more are filed next to school recaps, novel excerpts, and terrible first-draft short stories from when I was thirteen?

My laptop’s spacebar has become a little sticky to the point where occasionally I have to pull out my school ID card, stick the edge under the key, and wiggle it up and down to bring it back to life. I’ve had this computer almost as long as I’ve had this blog, and despite a few hiccups now and then, it’s still running strong (knock on wood). Continue reading

Five years, five seconds

It seems that as I grow, the number of years matter less and less.

My sporadic passions can be much like ocean currents carrying jellies, taking me across vast spaces with potential to travel a thousand different directions.

I should read more. What can I paint next on my wall? How can I connect art and science and share it with the world?

What next? Continue reading

I just read over the posts I wrote for one then two years of running this blog, and to be honest, it was a little bit painful. The extremely rough writing definitely made me cringe at least a little, and it also made me realize that I was far more oblivious to the world than I am now. (This post will probably be equally as bad in another year’s time.)

This Nerdy Kid Who Had A Blog

I knew by the facts that, 1) last week was August and 2) this week is September, today was coming up, but honestly… I’m completely surprised.  Continue reading

I Didn’t Get A Hogwarts Letter, But This Is A Pretty Good Substitute

The Hogwarts Express leaves Platform 9¾ without fail on 1 September at 11 o’clock in the morning.

I have officially missed the train this year.

I mean, I didn’t get my letter to begin with, but we all know that it’s only because my dog ate my letter and I had no way to contact the school to get a replacement. Muggle-born here.

But when I logged into WordPress a little while ago, my mourning of the missed train was brought to a standstill.
