Story
Tagline
"Genius might be described as a supreme capacity for getting its possessors into trouble of all kinds." - Samuel Butler
Introduction
All around Jill-of-all-trades, mistress of a few. I translate tech into English. Android enthusiast. Browncoat extraordinaire. You can ask me anything. 

What I'm Into
My tastes are constantly evolving. But I'm passionate about: 
  • STEM education
  • Android
  • Photography
  • Women in tech
  • Travel
  • 90s music
  • All things Geek and Nerd - hardware, software, and entertainment.
  • Disney
I flirt, sometimes dangerously, but if you creep, you will be blocked. There, you've been warned. Proceed at your own risk.


"I think you mustn't tell your body, you mustn't tell your soul, 'I'm going to retire,'" Dee told The Associated Press in 2001. "You may be changing your life emphasis, but there's still things that you have in mind to do that now seems the right time to do. I really don't believe in retiring as long as you can breathe."
Bragging rights
"If you were any more of a super star than you already are, the world would end from the heat coming off of you igniting the air." -- Hank Yeomans

This Alarm Clock Wakes You Up with a Fresh Cup of Coffee
http://nerdi.st/22rQ1Cr
I have always maintained that the worse part of every single day is the very start, right when your alarm clock wakes you up. Think about it—you are in a warm, comfortable, safe, inviting place, where magical visions come to you, and then you are violently ripped away from that by a screeching siren screaming a reminder that you have to go somewhere you don't want to be as much as you do your own bed. The only thing that makes that horrible momen...

I love this article! It's not perfect, and it critiques some of fandom's most sacred films/shows, but if we are to make progress, we need to acknowledge that some of our favorite movies/shows, etc. do have their weaknesses. We all have our own blind spots regarding gender roles.
I often feel like as we're making great strides conquering sexism against women, but the ways in which the patriarchy harms men is laughed off and ignored, sometimes even by people who believe in the equality of the genders.

From my perspective, equal doesn't just mean "A woman should be able/allowed to do anything a man can do" but also "A man should be able/allowed to do anything a woman can do." (Applied to the entire gender spectrum, of course.) And this cultural phenomenon that many people are deeming "toxic masculinity" or machismo is what stands in the way of true equality.

You’d think patriarchy would be good for men, but it isn’t. Patriarchy enforces strict standards of masculinity that are impossible to meet. But because masculine traits are glorified, it’s easy to lose sight of how toxic they are to men. As ...

I usually stay at La Quinta when traveling with my pets. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable and this location was close to the freeway and a Cracker Barrel was across the street.

This was my first time here. Take out was extremely fast and I was happy to see gluten free options for one person in our group. The snickerdoodles weren't that great though.

When visiting Boston this is one of my favorite hotels to stay at. It's close to the airport, T and Assembly Row. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, and I never have any issues.
