Struggling with life's equations...


I am a physics geek.

I will one day have a Ph.D. in high-energy theoretical physics, but for now I'm working on twin B.S. degrees in theoretical physics and pure mathematics.

I'm a liberal, a republican (strange, ain't it???), a buddhist, a philosopher, and a geek.

I like literature and art, political discussion, girls next door, people smarter than me, and doing my own taxes.

I spend too much time on the internet, at a linux terminal, pondering the universe, wondering if Einstein smelled, asking dumb questions, and feeling sorry for myself.

I want to get married, win a Nobel Prize, move to Ireland, and write essays on why the grass IS always greener on the other side.

Oh... and I do math really really REALLY well. :-P

update June 3, 2018: Sorry, there was a problem when updating the site to SSL and posting was affected for most users (annoyingly, not the one I use to test things though). Email andrew@diaryland.com with any remaining bugs that stop you from posting. (No need to tell me about archiving problems, etc, I'm working on those).

More fixes soon.
