I have a lot of interests and a lot of opinions. This page is a place for me to put up any descriptions, explanations, observations, or remarks.
My purpose for writing is to share information. Hopefully something here will help someone. If you agree with anything here, link to it so that other people can find it. If you disagree, send me an email. I'm happy to change an opinion given good reason.
I love just about all types of [musical] music including classical, jazz, and various international genres (World Music Cultures was one of the best classes I ever took in college). I enjoy singing, and I play the bagpipes, trombone, and piano (only easy stuff on the piano). I have too many favorite instruments to even begin listing them.
Being stupid sometimes can be a lot of fun.
Many people are scared of computers or just plain hate them. Understanding technology makes a huge difference.
I lived in Bulgaria for half a year and in Serbia for a year and a half as a full-time missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ("Crkva Isusa Hrista svetaca poslednjih dana" and "Tsurkvata na Isus Hristos na svetiite od poslednite dni" in Serbian and Bulgarian respectively). I really miss living in the Balkans.
I really enjoy reading.
Overall, I love BYU. It's a great school. I recommend it to anyone who's thinking about going there. It's also got its share of idiots, though fortunately you don't have to deal with them too often. Here are some of my thoughts on specific aspects of BYU. I'll refrain from sharing either good or bad opinions about the CS Department because I'm an employee, and I don't want to get myself into too much trouble.
