Las Vegas Album
As mentioned earlier on previous blog post, this year was the MIT Pi Reunion for the 2007 graduating class in Las Vegas. I went to meet my fraternity pledge brothers and take a few pictures of the city. My MobleMe account just expired on the twentieth of August, but I just put together a small wizzy-wig page on my blog domane that has a collection of all the albums I’ve posted via my blog....
Portland Japanese Garden Album
For some reason, I always am partial to Japanese gardens, even before my injury. The tranquility and bliss within them calms me down and helps me understand myself better.

Here are some pictures I took in Leavenworth, Washington. It is a small quaint town with a German theme in the downtown area. My dad had some business here, so mom and I decided to turn it into a vacation, bringing the camera in hand.

Since Washington is so far south off the northern pole, it occurs once every ten years from an extremely large solar wind. Knowing how rare this could be, I grabbed my camera and...

This fall, I will be going to the UW for two to three hours a day, five days a week, to reduce my aphasia. The funny thing is that my current status was so good, I almost did not qualify to enter the program. I had to take a...
Being in Las Vegas with a brain injury was definitely taxing. I admit that the short two and a half days I stayed was enough stimulus for me for a while. I went originally for the official MIT 2007 class reunion, the one I originally intended to graduate. It may seem odd why the class reunion is in 2010 from 2007. Well, the reunion called Pi, just occurred. Based off the number pi or π, which...
