  1. Love the quote.
    Gotta check out Baxter now.

    By the way, your vacation must have energized you, you’ve been blogging nonstop since your return. Wonderful!

  2. Words to live by, literally. How about adapting an oldie but goodie?

    Teach as if you have no money. Aspire to new heights as if you have never failed. Blog like no one is reading. Talk like no one is listening. And live everyday as if it were your last”

  3. hilarious. i find myself nodding off when bored out of my mind, or even just screaming at the top of my lungs some random mathematical nonsense.
