    I'm Just Sick Of It

    The World Just Got Much Bigger

    Okay, maybe I'm jumping the gun a little by saying "I need to finish my PhD."  The truth is I'm finishing my Masters right now.  Five more chapters and I'll be done with the program.  Something strange happened to me over the course of about 200 books...

    Delayed Pragmatism

    After four years of perfectionism and loads of procrastination, I am now about to loose it all. I hope not, but it is easy to just have another slipage. So many things got on my way and so many times I failed them and myself. So many times I was defeated by technology, health...
