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.
Any college student has to deal with a concept of the 'bubble'. I'm not talking about the soapy bubbles that you probably blew when you were 5 years old. This bubble is more of a shield, a shield that is strong during freshman year but slowly decreases is size, or thickness, and becomes more vulnerable […]
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 […]
