About

This is where I would put something insightful if I were majoring in English or something like that. Unfortunately, the readers of this blog will have the dismay of reading the choppy and overly factual word barf that comes from the mouth of an engineer. My poetry consists of rhyming words like poop and dupe, and then giggling afterwards. Usually, I am the only one laughing. I guess this is what happens when you spend your first years of adulthood cooped up in a basement getting excited when you can program an FPGA to make a dot appear on a VGA. I certainly missed out on the complex social interaction involved with learning the intricacies of flip cup, beer pong, and the normal human conversation that goes along with these refined activities.

So, what am I doing here?

I wanted to start discussions about some of the things I have learned, and am still learning, in the field of engineering. I want to discuss scientific innovation, the process of relaying new ideas to society, and issues surrounding women in science and engineering. It seems there is endless fodder to induce my tumultuous word barf, so here I am.

Enjoy.

  1. You might not dig this blogging award system, but I listed your site in my blog post today. You have such great information and a unique perspective, that I wanted to let my readers know about your writing. You can take or leave the award, but just know your blog is appreciated. Thanks!

  2. Hi Femanomaly, I’m one of those who loves science, and this is a really cool site! To share and promote… I put a link to your site on my front page “Lila’s Featured Site” area. Hope this gets you some more well-deserved traffic!

  3. Thanks for following my blog. I look forward to reading your posts.

  4. Hahaha. You said poop! Sorry. I work with teenagers all day, so I am probably certifiably insane. That said, I love your blog. Now, I’m not sure what that says about YOU. 🙂

  5. Your blog is great, whether you know it or not. So, I have nominated you for a Sunshine Blog Award leaving you with two options: 1) bask in the glow; or 2) bask in the glow and spread it further as described on my blog (the post titled “A Sunny Friday”).

  6. You were or are following a blog called opt4 whose goal was to prevent domestic violence and promote nonviolence. My name is Chad Herman, Visionary/Motivational speaker and I was writing that blog for over 3 years. Everything you saw on that blog was my creation…and I hope you liked it. Unfortunately, because of federal budget cuts, I no longer am able to keep up that blog. I hope that others will in my absence, but I don’t know. With that said: I have my own blog, motivatingforpositivechange.wordpress.com dedicated to the idea that “if we all did something to help a cause we truly believe in, we could change the world.” I still write about gender equality and nonviolence, in addition to multiple other causes and ways to continue creating positive change.Please check out motivatingforpositivecghange.wordpress,com. I promise you won’t be dissapointed!

  7. I’m someone relatively new to the world of WordPress but I’ve been enjoying finding out about other engineers and scientists, particularly other women, that have also taken to the world of blogging. This is a great blog and it’s brilliant that it’s coming from another female engineer!
