Hey, I'm twenty!

Saw this on Google+ . . .

Click to see. It's a list.

I don't know how I feel about it though. Some of it seems sound. But other parts of it, I want to just ignore. Like 17 for example. A reminder app? Really? But then again, this list is another blogger's list, not mine. And who knows, maybe in ten years I'll have the same items on my list.

What would I tell my fifteen year old self?

Nothing really. I felt I made all the right wrong and correct choices. I feel like I was super fortunate that all my choices were great choices and my not so great choices didn't have any devastating outcomes. Maybe though, I would tell myself to read more. I read a lot in middle school and then I kind of stopped reading in high school. Not exactly sure why. I didn't have a smooth transition into adult books, I guess. I have nothing to regret though. But that may be because of my current mindset. I believe things happen for a reason, good or bad, and what we gain from those good or bad things are wonderful experience, which is never a bad thing. With that mindset, it's kind of hard to regret anything.

Yeah, this was just a quick post. I'll get back to posting. I was going to post a rather personally post but then I changed my mind. Haha.

This Summer

This summer, I will be spending half of it in Boston, and the other half it at home, which is an hour commute away from Boston. That's a total of two hours of commute, which I am kind of excited to make. I always feel more transcendental when I'm on the train. And most importantly, I get time to myself to stare out a window and daydream. (I can't do anything too eye intensive, like reading, in a moving vehicle because I get motion sickness very easily. Seeing myself move at all times helps a lot though.)

When I'm in Boston I will be working with one of my professors or tinkering away at the Imagineering Lab or exploring. And when I'm at home, who knows what I'll be doing.

But this summer will be a good summer. Shall I make goals like I did last summer? No, I don't think I will this year. I kind of want to just wing it this summer. When I'm working on my Professor's project, I want to be really focused, and make it as much of a learning experience as possible. And when I'm not working on my Professor's project, I want to be having fun! I want to also make things!

Yesterday, I was in Boston very briefly. I was sitting on a bench on Bay State Road, in the middle of the Boston University Campus, minutes away from any location on campus. And it felt great. The weather was great. The view was great. Here's to a great summer! I'll report back at the end of it, maybe.

When I looked up yesterday, I saw this: a canopy of leaves with sunlight poking through! I'm such a natural light person!

New Blog


I just met you. And this is crazy, but here's my –

I have a new blog. Check it out to see what it's all about!


I chose a free wordpress blog because I really wanted a standalone blog, not a website, and something fresh. My google account that I use for this blog is connected to too many things! When it comes to hardware, I'm very vertical, narrow. I prefer my apple products and at times I do seem a bit cult like. But when it comes to web services, I like to have multiple accounts across different websites. I have email addresses on most major email services, for example. So the fact that way too many of web services are connected to my google account makes me a little antsy. This new blog on wordpress let's me remedy that a little bit. I've tried my best to customize this new blog but the free version of wordpress is pretty limited. Nevertheless, Enjoy!

Don't worry, it's just a secondary blog. This will still be my primary blog. I've grown kind of, you could say, . . . attached.

Side note: I'm home. And I need to recharge. I am definitely weary.
