My Ph.D. defense went well.

I'm on my way to getting my degree. I can now look to the future with my head held high. Thanks to the people who wished me luck! :D :D

My defense is tomorrow.

I have to stand in front of my dissertation committee and basically answer their questions and show them I can do research and that I deserve to get a Ph.D. degree. I'm pretty nervous about the whole thing, really, because if it doesn't go well I'm screwed. On the other hand, I'm hopeful that I'm going to succeed. I have two things to do today, finalize my presentation and re-read my dissertation.

Wish me luck!

I'm writing my dissertation.

It's taking up a lot of my time. During breaks, I do make new music. Maybe at some point I'll post something new up. Hopefully soon.

Lots to do, so little time.

My dad was feeling neck pain, but he's getting better. Also, I've been writing a research paper. And I've been doing more videos, including this one:

Also, I found a way to do Flash animations without flash; it basically takes some mad UNIX skills, and it would take a while to explain.

And summer's here again.

After a year of being a teaching assistant, things are now as quiet as ever. I've made new fractal animations and artworks. And I'm in a plug-and-chug phase of my research. So life is ... pretty good. I'm back to my normal state of feeling bored and anxious at the same time. But I do have some moments where I have more time on my hands.

And with that, here's one of my newer vids:

But it was really exciting. I managed to juggle between research and being a teaching assistant for a biochemistry course.

I also made some new art to keep myself from getting too stressed, and I even made some videos like this one:

Now that I'm done with this semester, I just feel really tired. You'd feel the same way if you went through a few months worth of hard work, which I bet there are plenty of people here who've been through just that.

One note about my art.

I always seek to improve how I do art, and if there's something you don't like about a certain artwork, tell me what you don't like about it. That way, I can improve my art and better communicate my ideas in artistic ways.

I love the new art portal.

And I've got some stuff in the works. :D :D I'm mainly a fractal person, but occasionally I do anime stuff. :D :D Stay tuned!

Oh well...

Well it looks like my latest audio submission was a flop. (shrugs) I guess the intro took too long or something. I guess I'm better off just doing the actual fractal midi converted to MP3, nothing more. Oh well.

Oh, and sorry for not posting very often; you see, I'm a graduate student in biology and I dedicate a lot of time to studying.

It's nice to be here on Newgrounds. I'm mainly an audio kind of guy around here, so expect music from me, especially fractal music. For those of you who don't know, a fractal is an irregular mathematical pattern that has many levels of detail and self-similarity (self-similarity is when the pattern repeats itself). Fractals have been applied to art, music, and even biology and biochemistry.
