today’s the day

In about 45 minutes, many of my top colleges are releasing their decisions. I might end up brig really happy or sad or bouncing in between those two extremes. I’m nervous, but not as nervous as some people probably are today because I’ve already gotten into a school that I really love and could see … Continue reading

pi day, pi day, gotta get down on pi day

(This post got a little delayed, but better late than never, right?) Pi Day is probably every nerd’s favorite holiday. Thus, being the nerds that we are, my AP Physics class decided to celebrate. We each baked (or bought, if you’re culinarily challenged like me) some type of pie for a big pi(e) party. It … Continue reading

accomplice (original song)

Hi, guys! I wrote a song! It’s the second song I’ve ever written. Give it a listen? I’ll just leave it here… (lyrics under the cut)

It is mathy and artsy and quirky and everything that I love. Not to mention … Continue reading

hello, hello, is anyone there?

(source for the featured image) I’d like to be under the sea in an octopus’s garden in the shade… I’m pretty new to this whole blogging experience, so I’m not quite sure where to begin. I suppose the best way to approach this is to explain why my friends call me the “Octopi.”
