This place is a blog. If you know me, you already know how odd that is for me. I'm generally a pretty reserved person, except with close friends, or when someone foolishly gets me started talking about one of my favorite topics (Jurassic Park, Chernobyl, biohacking, etc.) in which case I will never shut up. Outside of that however, I am not much of a sharer, so having a website dedicated to sharing my thoughts is completely new to me.
With that said, I plan to use this blog for a little of everything that I have thoughts about. Some posts may be of a more personal nature, about what is going on in my life. Others may be code blogs explaining a particularly interesting solution that I came up with to a challenge that I feel might be useful to the programming community at large. Still others may be long rants about my favorite topics mentioned above, or others.
I have decided that some of the first things I'll be posting here will be some old writings of mine. Since I've never had a blog, and I'm not entirely sure what to write, this seems like a good place to begin.
Back in October of 2018, I took a solo trip to Arizona for a few days. To some, this may not seem exciting at all. But this was a very significant trip for me, as I had never done any solo travel before. I learned a lot on this trip, and stepped outside of my (usually very limited) comfort zone many times.
A while back, it occurred to me that I should write down every detail that I can remember of the journey while I can still remember them, so that I can read back through them later when I no longer can recall.
I broke the tale up into the individual days it took place over, and sections based on the larger experiences I had on each day. Once I have finished editing them, I plan to post them here the same way, with each day receiving its own post, complete with corresponding photos. Keep an eye out for these coming soon!
