The problem with not having a blog with no post schedule is how tough it is to bring myself to post at all sometimes. This past month I've had absolutely no inspiration about anything in particular. I suppose this gives me a good appreciation for what it must be like for people with real blogs (read: those with readership).
It was my birthday this week. I am now 23 years old. Still there, still pink. In my most recent year of life a lot has happened and at the same time not much has happened. The whole time I've just been working at McCain Foods as a programmer. During the same time span I was a finalist in a large programming contest, I wrote and deployed a new blog and backend, I revisited my alma mater, the University of Waterloo, to haunt the students there old and new (a process I hope to repeat annually for as long as I know people there), I was promoted from "associate" to "programmer" at work, I bought a new PC and upgraded later, I joined a jazz band, and I was giving a freaking Xbox as a gift (thanks again, Jos). It's been more than a year now since I've moved away from Waterloo. Seems like it's been longer, somehow.
Since I'm in a good mood (when am I ever in another mood? I'll kill you!), I've decided to link to a bunch of things. The first is a show called "Look around you", whose first episode is about mathematics. Aren't mathematics great? I use them to fly to work all the time. There are seven more episodes from the series (all on the same page I linked), and each one is as hilarious and scientific as the first. If you like maths, then I definitely suggest liking the rest.
I had forgotten about it, but someone at Imprint made an entry for me in the people section of its wiki. I should get around to writing Tex's entry properly. Ehh. That's probably too much work. Stupid work. Force times distance my ass.
Speaking of math, you should read up on the Ackermann function. Seriously. I'm not joking. It's really important if you're me. You are me, right? Oh. I think I got you and I confused again. I keep forgetting that I'm me and that means you're not me. I'm sorREAL PROJECTIVE PLANE!!
