It’s not about overview effect; I’m not on drugs. The story was long: it once resided in two places across a continent; now it’s three feet across but also spread through all time that I could conjure. If I can invent time machine, this Day is where I travel back to. That's been the full … Continue reading November 17th
Three profound stories from my middle school days.
I am still attempting to fit every academic desire into the schedule for next semester — last one at Berkeley, second last one as an undergraduate student: Quantum, Introductory Cosmology, GR, advanced mechanics, Stats mech, topology, complex analysis, cellular biology, music theory, existentialism, and perhaps a language, documentary filmmaking and theatre (thanks). While writing this … Continue reading Directions
Not that I intend to celebrate the passage of time too 'often', as I do to myself when alone, but happy Anniversary to ftdsci. It's been good staying here. There are 17 days until school starts under an eclipsed sun, and, before that, 7 days until I leave for California, so maybe it's about time … Continue reading Here’s to the First Year of f-STEM
It's noted on my passport, and, I guess, somewhere confidential where they keep track of things, that I, 16, entered Aotearoa for the first time on 13 July 2014, fresh out of my Grade 10 in continental Eurasia, as a visitor to a family member in this country, carrying from home some holiday homework, half-scribble … Continue reading Three Anniversaries

Thank you to my teacher for not being too troubled by my absurd neediness. On … Continue reading (BITS of) π Day Memories
Long is my thought process; short is the plot, if there is any. With my certainty, I could tell that this story actually happened, with many more pieces of "my" life harmoniously unfolding in the same universe that views ours as a distant dream -- as though momentum wasn't conserved in our space. And … Continue reading Momentum: A Long Short Story Long Short.
Well, to say the least, to fill a chemistry presentation with every midnight-made segments of animation but not my growing reservoir of chemical data -- an action discrediting my usual style -- defines the problem with myself throughout the past few months. Limitations -- my limitations -- to identify them, and to dance within them. … Continue reading Fish Out of the Water
This year in all deserves something formally written, of course. I am time's friend, having just given it a box of arrows as the new year present (maybe when time gets bored, it might shoot the arrows elsewhere, such that we won't need black holes). So here I am, at the end of another … Continue reading MMXVI
