• 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 have so many partially written

    Having as many partially written things as I do is somewhat

    What I’ve decided to muse about today is: is there a way I can accept the incompleteness, as it is, without being harsh with myself, so I can simply

    And if I do start moving on with other things, how can I be sure

    Now, seriously,


    Objectively speaking (or at least making some semblance of an attempt to do so on this matter), it makes sense that incomplete things would weigh on someone’s mind.  It also makes sense that it might be easier for that person to move on with other things if there was a clear and easy way to give up on the incomplete things — but, in many cases, it may be better to simply complete the incomplete.  The first step is to start looking for ideas to toss, so as to reduce the stress about the number of incomplete tasks.

    Another idea: redefine “complete”.  Maybe some of the ideas are almost done already, and their time to completion can be reduced. For example: this blog post could be done, right now.
