I like to think that I am a decent reader - Pocket certainly seemed to think so. Around the end of last year, I got an email from them claiming that I had made it to the top 5% of their readers. Wow! An amazing feat especially considering that I had started using the service around October or November (or perhaps people just don’t read much on it…). I was pretty surprised reading the email, which led me to think about exactly how much I had read and that would have been that except Pocket does not provide ANY statistics at all.
It’s been a few months since my last post because I’ve just been so busy with school. Now that school is over I’d like to get back in the habit of writing. I feel like it’ll be a repeat of last time but I’ll try not to…
After dealing with a very old and sluggish desktop for a long time, I finally had enough and decided to build my own computer. This decision was a long time in coming as I never really had a compelling reason to make it seeing as I had a very capable laptop. But, a computer isn’t just a computer, as I’ve learned.

I’ve previously helped some of my friends pick their parts and build their computers. It was finally my turn.
I’ve always been into computers, but interestingly enough I never bought a good one that I actually wanted. I had a desktop which was just very slow but I lived with it as I didn’t use the computer much. I then decided to buy a cheap laptop which I promprty broke the screen of. This was not good as I had been on a roll breaking a bunch of stuff, so again I was with my desktop again.
I’m a freshman in NYU Tandon School of Engineering.
Ever since I could remember, I was always so ambitious. There were so many things that I wanted to do and so many things that I wanted to learn. As you might guess, I never quite got around to the majority of the things in mind. In fact, of the few that I got around to doing, only a fraction ever got completed.
I’ve been meaning to make blog using GitHub’s built in system using Jekyll. But of course I got distracted and never quite got around to it. Today happens to be one of those rare days when I’m actually feeling motivated so I searched for the guide to set it up.
