I’ve been keeping a journal for a couple of months now. I want to make it a habit to hone my writing

in plain text using either vim or emacs. So when I heard about jrnl, I decided
to give it a try.
Today is the day of the 533rd Convocation Ceremony of University of Chicago. And with the pandemic
happening across the world, yes, this event is held virtually, like many other graduation

walked to the stage, hooded by my advisor, and ceremonially inducted as a full-fledged Ph.D.
