About Me

On this dot, tiny lumps of impure carbon and water, of complicated structure, with somewhat unusual physical and chemical properties, crawl about for a few years, until they are dissolved again into the elements of which they are compounded.

Bertrand Russell

I’m Giang

I’m a person who does things, and will someday be prevented from doing things by death. This page is here to document the things.

I’m a geek. I like Star Trek and video games. I’m on Steam and League as Snooroo.

I’m a tribal unit. I’m mated with a red head. I feed and shelter one low dog and two chaotic neutral cats. I have four(+two) siblings and two parents. I am a Californian, an anti-Trump American. I’m a Gaucho. I’m a sentimental atheist.

I’m a word-a-phile. I like reading and writing. Here’s my goodreads profile.

I like solitude, travel, hiking, theater, National Parks and drinking tea while reading stories about tentacled horrors. I photo. I piano. I tweet.

By Age 35, you should realize that the world is a great big ball of injustices and chaos, and that your job as a decent human being isn’t to just ride it out and hope it falls in your favor. Also, you should be a robot that transforms into a spaceship.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves…

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.
