Brief Blogging Hiatus

lang: en

It has been almost two months since I last posted on this blog. That is a surprisingly long time for me, considering I have been blogging for almost 5 years now, almost without a single month being missed (the last gap was during the endgame for my undergraduate thesis).

This last month has been a month of change – new goals, new tasks, new home (having moved to SF this past month). As I execute on my goals for 2013, I realized that the amount of time that I spend on this blog is out of proportion to my own personal benefit from it. I intend to come back to this blog at some point in the future, but for now, it is going on hiatus.

As always, I am available by email. Send a note if you have something to say. Otherwise, hopefully regularly scheduled programming will return soon.
