It’s a few days before Christmas, and it’s still 75F in Austin. We’re headed to Houston for the holidays. We’ll spend Christmas Eve and Day with my family. I think dim sum is in my future. I think it’s going to be a good holiday. Anyway, for Christmas, my co-worker asked me if I could […]

Dreams Aren’t Impossible
Dreams Aren't Impossible

A few weeks ago, I was searching for information on declension nouns (don’t ask), and I stumbled upon a random blog. The blog belonged to a guy who adored all languages. His site presented some neat ideas and useful information, so I decided to read his bio. His back story is similar to mine. And […]
