• Who am I?

    I am Qrystal; or at least, that's my dot-name! Har har. (My name is really Crystal, but that's not as internet-searchable; hence, switching the C for the little-used letter Q.)

    I am here because I enjoy writing. I do this mostly for myself, but I also have a passion for helping others learn things from the things I write. Now that I am done my Ph.D. in Physics, I am stepping away from academic research so that I can indulge in some creative ways to share my knowledge and inspire the appreciation of scientific thinking in others. I am also working as a tutor, which is one of the jobs I've most enjoyed doing in my life so far.

  • I don’t care that “Hello world!” is a clichéd title!

    A computer program that outputs “Hello world!” is the first exercise that I always do when learning a new programming language, and I see no reason to let this blog about myself suffer without such an honour. No, I am actually proud to call this my “Hello world!” blog entry, because the name is meaningful enough to me, and that’s all that matters!

    I’m even going to leave this post “Uncategorized”, just for kicks. Anyone who has installed a fresh version of WordPress will recognize it as the default category before any others exist. I am feeling quite content with leaving it as such until I find another categorization, and I’m in no hurry to find one of those.

    So what’s your point?

    My point, ah yes, thank you for reminding me. I do have a point. My point is that I’m helloing from a completely new standpoint: from my very own “dot-name” domain. I’ve just manually installed WordPress, and I’m now testing to see if it works (and providing myself some content so that I can see how it looks).

    So, Hello, World. I am Qrystal. I am here to make a dot-name for myself — or, at least, make the dot-name into something I can genuinely identify with myself.

    Cheers~!
