I started this blog almost a decade ago, in my third year of undergrad, with no clear purpose. A smattering of different things here: sharing things I found interesting at the time, reflections, rants – the usual.
My posts were never very regular except for intermittent bursts of activity. For a period I also blogged for other publications such as Spacing Magazine and Express Tribune. After I started working full time in 2011 I switched to mostly just posting articles written for others.
My posts are archived here. Note that I strongly disagree with my old self on many things he wrote all those years ago, and often wince at re-reading old posts.
