I haven’t updated this site in a while.  I should work on that.

I recently found a letter that I wrote myself back in 6th grade (I was 10) and was supposed to read when I was 20.  It’s pretty simple, and my handwriting hasn’t improved much since then, but I was surprisingly insightful.

P.s.  You are a fool and are probably not doing what you want to do (oceanographer).

My 6th grade self is right.  I’m not an oceanographer.  And I am foolish from time to time.  Go figure.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, pitch manure, solve equations, analyze a new problem, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. ~ Robert Heinlein

I’m working on the invasion now.
