Trying my best to update this more regularly. I've had a busy start to 2023 with proposing 💍 (and getting engaged) to Diane in January! In February Diane and I bought a townhome 🏠 in Seattle. And in March I met up with some friends to climb in red rocks and then ran 🏃 the LA marathon! Life feels quite hectic at the moment, and at times it has felt overwhelming. But looking back on it, it's almost all with fondness.

Wow, it's been a while since updating here, but I'm not dead! Ever since the PhD got cut short, life felt like it has been flying by. Both in good, and bad, ways. Things seems to have steadied a bit now, and Diane and I moved to Seattle which we are loving. Been staying active and learning lots of new quantum things. Work is good, exciting, and busy. Encountering lots of new unknowns every day.

It's wild that it's 2021 and the year seems to be getting worse than 2020. Anyway, I'm currently entering my second semester of grad school. I'll be taking Quantum Info. Devices an Open Quantum Systems and maybe Lie Groups/Algebras if I decide taking three courses isn't taking too much of my time. I've also been writing some poetry recently, and some other creative writing. I'd like to share some of it eventually, but not yet. heheh

Currently breaking from work for about a month before I start classes in September. Having fun doing tech stuff on my own, hanging out with family (where possible, pandemic is still happening ya know), chatting with friends, and cooking some food.

Currently working as a software developer at Overleaf where I write frontend, backend, do data analysis, go to conferences, go to london to hangout with the team, and have meetings. It's a great gig and it pays well enough. I work remotely (and not just because of the pandemic).
