• A Look Ahead

    So I’ve been deliberating for a little too long on my plans for the next few months - and perhaps years. I’ve decided to stay in New York City for another year. Originally, I was planning on relocating to Pittsburgh or the Bay Area, but at least for the moment,...

  • Polymath or Dilettante?

    If you know me well, you’ll know that I’ve struggled with this for a long time. In addition to my passions for programming, writing, and science research, I’ve also had stints in animation, painting, yarn art, digital graphics, music, baking, politics, public speaking, photography, blogging, videography - not to say...

  • Social Media on the Hold

    So as part of a challenge, I decided not to post anything on Facebook for two months. It wasn’t anything formal - I wasn’t dared to do it, I didn’t get forced into it, I didn’t feel like it was absolutely crucial for my well-being. I just felt, in a...

  • My First Time at the Container Summit

    I was lucky enough to win a grant from Women Who Code NYC (@WWCodeNYC) to attend the NYC Container Summit (http://containersummit.io/events/nyc-2016) this year. According to their website: Container Summit returns to NYC in February of 2016 to continue the conversation surrounding containers in the enterprise! There are more and more...

  • How Not to Do Your Final Project

    So I’ve had a pretty rough week. Honestly, in between getting horrifically sick to deadlines absolutely everywhere, it’s been a hell hole of pain. Obviously, I’ve been through worse, but I think it was the sheer pressure that got to me this time. I’m a little surprised, considering how I...
