• 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.

  • A Nature Calendar, for a Good Cause

    I love having a beautiful calendar. Doesn’t everyone? I, personally, always choose a nature-related theme for calendars, because it just seems right that the seasonal shifts be represented by images from the natural world.

    This year, I could go one step further: instead of just representing nature on my wall, I could be supporting wildlife preservation with my purchase! The World Wildlife Fund gets all profits from the sales of this gorgeous calendar, made from photos taken by artists at deviantart.com.
