Hello? Is... is this thing on? The red light means it's on, right? Or do I... I have to push a button, don't I? Well, which one? There's like ten! The black one? They're all black!

Motorboard hats look really stupid. · 1:53pm Oct 18th, 2015

I got a reminder of that on Thursday, when I officially graduated from York University. But, as I was walking back to the car with my family, BSc in hand, I realized something. Maybe they're supposed to look stupid. Because I was wearing the bloody thing with pride. And if I was wearing something that stupid with pride, then I had to be really proud of myself.

Well. In any case, with that done, that's a weight off my shoulders. Now on to the Master's degree.

Time to celebrate all things circular again. · 1:27pm Mar 14th, 2015

And today's a very special pi day indeed. On a related note, I'm attempting to post this as close to 9:26 and 53 seconds as I can.

So, yeah. Grab some pie, doodle some circles, calculate the radius of the universe or something. The sky's the limit on pi day.

Today's a special day. · 2:49pm Dec 4th, 2014

Because starting today, I can go waltz across the border into the United States, walk into the first bar I see, sit down, and order a beer. And nobody will be able to do anything about it.

Then I'll stare at said beer awkwardly after remembering that I hate beer and don't drink. And then quietly ask for a virgin screwdriver or something.

Huh. Turning 21's kinds boring in Canada, now that I think about it.

Fun with biology: life without oxygen · 5:13pm Oct 30th, 2014

Over the last couple weeks, I've been working on a research essay for one of my easy elective courses: something us Canadians call a "bird course." On a whim, I decided to write about one of the topics I didn't really know much about, because where's the fun in researching something you already know? That topic ended up being one of the most interesting things I've ever researched, and what I found out was cool enough that I can't resist telling anyone who'll listen about it.

Couple quick announcements · 4:54pm Jul 19th, 2014

Just a little heads-up for all of you: at the end of the month, I'll be leaving for Algonquin Park for two weeks to take part in a field course focusing on the biodiversity of the Canadian Shield. For those two weeks, I'll be completely off the grid. Granted, this won't be that different from my current level of activity, which leads into my second announcement: I'm giving myself a self-imposed deadline. By the end of the month, I will have released something. Might be a oneshot, might

Because I have nothing more witty to say, and because I'm sick of looking at that last blog post, I'll throw a bit on my current projects here.

I feel like I should explain myself. · 5:31pm Mar 20th, 2014

As several of you may have noticed, my current project, a story titled A Simple Reflection has recently, and finally made it onto Equestria Daily. You may have also noticed that it hasn't updated for about six months. Even for my usual pace, that's a bit ridiculous.
