the human machine

The end of the Spring semester approaches signaling the completion of 25% of my short-term goal. I should be done with the first stage about a year from now. I’m following a path that I should have chosen ten years ago, but this past decade was spent discovering life.
Now that my twenties are almost over, […]

the quick recap of the past two weeks

The last update here was a couple weeks ago right before I moved to a new apartment. Time has flown as usual. March has arrived. The cold is leaving, and the Spring transition is in progress.
