This blog is the product of my addiction to coffee.
Not really…though I did come up with the idea in a Starbucks. Really this blog serves the purpose of providing a different outlook into the field of engineering that one might not normally take. I’ve always thought that engineering was a fascinating subject, but putting the word beautiful to it has never been an easy task. When most people think of beauty they think of artwork, or a dancer performing a new ballet, or maybe a work of literature that has always been a favorite.
Yet, I like to think of my work as beautiful in an odd way too. I find beauty in mathematical proofs, statistical models, project-concept designs, manufacturing, and much more! So this blog is a way for me to try and express the beauty in what I do, such that one can see the world of an engineer through a different lens. Maybe you’ll buy it, maybe you won’t, but all in all, I appreciate you taking the time to check out my posts, and help bring some beauty into my world as well.
First off, thank you to the random person who followed my blog a few weeks ago (Emily I believe), reminding me that this exists and something needs to be done about it. In case you have lost all belief in my writing, I would like to take a second and shed a little light on […]
The winter Olympics have always seemed to be the 'little brother' in a way to its summer counterpart. But this year, things seem to be playing out a little bit differently. The buzz about Sochi has ranged from the extreme positive to the extreme negative; from new sports such as women's ski jumping, to terrorist […]
I was browsing the internet a few months ago when I came across something interesting. But before I tell you what I found, I'd like to give some insight into how I went about finding this piece of information. You see...I'm one of those short-attention spanned college students who researches a topic online, looks […]
I'm usually not good at girl talk (obviously), so you're probably wondering why I'm writing about Girl Talk. Actually, I should note, we're not going to talk about girl talk like this girl talk: We're going to talk about Girl Talk. Girl Talk looks like this: Girl Talk is actually Gregg Gillis. Now if you're […]
This one's a little weird. It's about using things...unconventionally. Unconventional inventions are nothing new to nerdy engineers likes us though. For instance in 1905, 11-year-old Frank Epperson accidentally left a wooden stick outside sitting in a cup of soda. That night, the temperature dropped below freezing. He came outside the next morning and removed the […]
This is a blog about two things. One is the field of engineering, which is seen as a rigorous discipline combining the two wonderfully interesting (depending upon your personality) fields of math and science. The other, is the beautiful. But just to spark your interest as to why I might be writing about engineering and […]
