My avatar across the web: a photo of my feet in grey-white socks and brown sandals.

I need to stand up to myself!

Gah. I think one of the reasons why I get stressed a lot is because I make too many commitments--especially to myself. I have coding, reading, writing, schoolwork, other obligations, and they all collide and go boom! It doesn't help that I lack time management or prioritizing skills. So I end up devoting all my time to nothing.

Anyway . . . other than the fact that the day needs more hours, things are going well. I got my driver's licence in the mail yesterday. My photo makes me look paler than I normally am, and I look like some sort of serial killer. My neck is way too long.

I need to get some writing done before I head to bed, because even though my priorities are completely scrambled, it feels good to do...

About this site

I started coding websites, in bad HTML on Geocities, in 2004 in a fit of whimsy. Since then I’ve learned PHP/MySQL, coded my own blog software, and rebuilt this site several times. With the exception of the blog, it’s currently running on the exquisite Symphony CMS. This website is hosted by HawkHost
