Philosophical Ranting of an Engineer

My Writing

October 26th, 2006

While I have been royally ignoring this blog the past few weeks, I have actually been engaged in quite a bit of writing. It is mostly emails, but includes some other things. Today for example I sent an email to a former RIT student asking him about his experience. RIT is a school I’m looking at for grad school. I also sent an email to the graduate school admissions department asking about setting up meetings with faculty and various people for a visit I hope to pay them. And on top of that I sent an email to an InterVarsity member at RIT inquiring about staying with someone while I am there! Lots of emails there. As far as grad schools go, I also sent an email to someone at SMU asking for some info on their grad program.

Yesterday I wrote a long email to a professor about some aspects of our school that could be better. The day before I wrote an email to the Microsoft recruiter asking about getting on their interview schedule, which I did.

And that’s pretty much it for semi-long emails. I have also been working on my resume an explanation of who I am as a programmer. Two weeks ago I spent a bit of time organizing my portfolio and writing descriptions of projects I have worked on, which can be found in new the portfolio section of my site.

On top of all that I wrote an A paper for game theory last week.

If this isn’t enough evidence to convince you that I’ve been writing a lot lately, then I don’t know what is.

Why am I telling you this? I’ve been told I write well and this blog is partially to blame for that. It motivates me to write about a variety of topics from the woes of losing my hard drive to the philosophy of designing games to rants like this one. My ability to express myself through words and my confidence allows me to write emails to professors of prospectful schools, Microsoft recuiters, and write two page long self promotion.

I just thought I’d share that with you guys.

    First to comment?! Love the writing. Blame your great grandmother, it’s a Bozarth tradition.
