It’s Been Real

I’ve been mulling over this post for weeks. I figured you all could handle some time off after the marathon of Europe posts. At least that’s what I was hoping, since it gave me more time to think without the crushing guilt.

Okay. Brace yourselves. Are you bracing? I am bracing because even at this very moment I’m kind of in denial that I’m about to say this. *deep breath* …I think Extra Credit Life is retiring. *wince* Are you still there? Are you okay? Is everyone okay? I think I am okay.

I had been planning to continue the blog, to write about my experiences in life and as a new engineer. I even wrote about it in this post. I promised you guys more blog and I’ve changed my mind and I’m sorry. I wanted to do it and part of me still wants to, but after the fog of my last semester and graduation and Europe lifted, I realized a few things. Continue reading


The Cube Root of One Billion

My little project, Extra Credit Life, hit its first milestone on Saturday with it’s one-thousandth page view! That’s one kiloview (1 kvw) in engineering-nerd-speak!

I’m incredibly grateful for everyone who has read and enjoyed and commented on Extra Credit Life thus far. I can’t wait to see where the next three years take me and I’m so excited to have you all along for the ride.

To celebrate one thousand views, I’d love to hear what you think. Let me know if there are topics you’ve been hoping I’d explore or if there’s a topic I’ve written about that you’d like me to expand on. Any thoughts you have are welcome!

In addition, I’m considering starting an Extra Credit Life Facebook page where I would link my posts each week and also occasionally post other relevant links. If I created the page, would you “like” it, or is Facebook so yesterday?

Thanks again for all the love. I wouldn’t have much of a blog without my readers.
