100 Things I’m Grateful for in 2020

Without much necessary explanation, this year has been pretty terrible, for the world globally, but also for a lot of people personally. I too experienced some lows with the many things that I had dreamed, envisioned, and planned on accomplishing that just never came to fruition or simply got canceled. However, I readily acknowledge this…

Leaving CMU… Life Updates + Gap Semester Plans

Long time no talk. I’m still here. Quite literally. I’ve not left my house since my last blog post four months ago except maybe for a handful of trips to the grocery store and socially distanced walks around my neighborhood as I’ve been trying to do my due diligence to stay quarantined. If you weren’t…

Sophomore Spring Semester Classes at Carnegie Mellon

It’s here. Finally. My biannual blog post about my college classes. Why am I posting this in August nearly 3 months after the end of the spring semester you might ask? Well, I started trying to write this blog post back in late May, but I only made it through half-way before hitting a writer’s…

Qualities of a Good Teaching Assistant

Sophomore Fall Semester Classes at Carnegie Mellon

Hellloo and happy holidays! I’m finally back and on winter break and doing better than ever! Academically, this semester has been my best semester so far so I’ll give you a run down of the classes I took and my thoughts on each of them. Just a quick reminder if you’re new here, I’m a…

Sophomore Year Move In + Room Tour

I’m back! Just finished editing a long overdue video for the Youtube channel with video clips I took back in earlier September. 😅 I filmed this not to be particularly cliche, but because there was a real lack of CMU dorm room videos 2 years ago when I was an anxious pre frosh trying to…

10 Places to Visit While at Carnegie Mellon (or in Pittsburgh)

Disclaimer: I don’t leave campus much. Because CS consume my life. I also don’t do sporty adventure things. Nor am I really a foodie to the great disappointment of my friends. So this is probably a super basic take on aesthetic photo places nearby Carnegie Mellon, but I’m also using this post as an excuse…
