Son of Metapost

Posted by – September 9, 2009

You wouldn’t know from looking, but this installation of WordPress is almost exactly one year old. What happened to the posts? They were all just sharing notes for a class I was taking at the time, so I deleted them. Whatever. I refuse to acknowledge that my past two attempts at blogging were complete failures that fizzled out after a couple months.

Wait—no…crap. Anyway, you know what they say about third attempts.

The Design

Nestled between Brigham Young University’s Wilkinson Student Center, Crabtree Technology Building, Clyde Engineering Building, and Harvey Fletcher Building, there stands a haphazard collection of Kwanset huts and temporary buildings. These structures house storage, engineering projects, TA offices, and who knows what else. They are an odd wart on an otherwise pristine campus.

I imagine that these buildings were originally intended to be temporary, but many have been in service for over seventy years. This blog’s design is a little like that. I grabbed an off-the-shelf theme to use until I could replace it with something I designed myself, but who knows when I’ll actually find the time.

Until then, this theme is functional and exhibits a stark beauty.

The Name

Look, I suck at naming things. I didn’t even come up with the name for this blog—my parents did. I figured if I tried to give it some nifty name I’d just wind up embarrassing myself, so I went the eponymous route. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

The End

We all know what a blog is. No sense going on and on about it.

    Ryyyy how is it possible that I’m just reading this now? I’ll tell you how. It got lost in a freaking swamp of spam emails. I fail at cleaning out my inbox, but tonight felt like that sort of night. LO AND BEHOLD, you have (re)started a blog! Yay! I’m so excited. I love your writing.

    Love, The Squerge
