Long time, no write. Some big news since the last post, I’ve accepted a Tenure-Track teaching spot at Shoreline Community College, starting in the fall. Woo! Also, Sugar got accepted into UW Mechanical Engineering! Woo! Some big new starts for both of us. The Spring term ended up nicely. At the end of April, I […]Read more "Sierpinski Gaskets and Infinite Summer"
The term is almost over. I am giving finals next week, then I get spring break. Woo! This term has gone really really great, maybe my best yet. I’m not sure whether my classes were particularly good or whether I am getting the hang of this, or whether I just happen to do a great […]Read more "Viking Meetings"
One of the many nice things about being in academia is the sporadic extended breaks. Between Spring and Summer term, Sugar and I had a week off of school and we took advantage of the middle of the week to go over to the Olympic Peninsula. We camped at the very northeasternmost point at Fort […]Read more "Visiting Zeus"
Spring Break Adventures! Lots of things to report. The winter term ended last week, and with some foresight and preparation, grading was fairly painless. I did have to stay up pretty late one night to grade tests, but I got to sleep in the next day. This past term was pretty hard, I don’t know […]Read more "SB2k15!"
A few months ago, Sugar and I went to a museum that featured the art of ::Nikki McClure:: who does intricate paper designs. One stood out to me in particular in a standing frame with no back allowing the light to pass through and cast a shadow. I decided to try my hand and make […]Read more "Approximating with an Xacto"
Wow. Lots of things happening, not much blogging happening. An inverse relationship, I suppose. Anyway, lets back up to the end of summer. Sugar and I went on an awesome adventure to the San Juan Islands and camped out for a couple of days. We hit the sweet spot right when it wasn’t very crowded […]Read more "Where did the Cloud Blanket Go?"
Happy Summer everybody. Summer in Seattle rules. My semester of too many classes finished back in June and now the living is easy. I am teaching 2 classes (business calc and vector calc), both at the same school which is biking distance away from me. Also, they only run from Monday to Thursday. Three day […]Read more "Long Days. Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay"
::Proof:: So February is already the greatest of months for so many reasons. I will list some: Abe’s birthday, Chuck’s birthday, my birthday, the fact that it has a variable amount of days, the days are starting to get longer, Bill Evan’s birthday, George Washington’s birthday, President’s birthday I think the fact that February contains […]Read more "Everything Is Awesome"
Okay, now that I am settling in in Seattle, but still have all of this free time being an unemployed bum, I have made an effort to develop a set of habits to keep me on top of my game. The things I’m up against these days are finding a job and studying for the […]Read more "Juicing"
would have been a nice thing to do. First of all, Happy New Year. In case you were wondering, neither 2013 nor 2014 are prime numbers. So life has become a bunch more geotemporally centered in the neighborhood of now than the past half of a year. I still feel like I’m floating because I […]Read more "Hitting the ground running"
