From photos to video diaries: how I remember the past

One challenging question I’ve always had was how to remember the past. I know that my memory isn’t the best, and when my friends and I reminisce about the good ol’ days, our accounts begin to differ. Who knows what another few years will make of our memories? We include

Thoughts after moving to New York

Why I love Algebra

Algebra is awesome. Pure awesomeness, it makes everyday things so much easier and I love it! But it has some flaws (which get fixed in Calculus), dealing with infinite series and zero.   But these do allow us to make some funny equations. Classic: 1 = 2 But (hopefully) everyone
