Hello world!

All right!  New blog, new intro!

My name is Shay, and I am a mathematics graduate student.  I have numerous interests and goals, but not always the time to indulge them.  I just try to pull my life together one day at a time.

Some things you should know about me to make the most sense of this blog (in no particular order):

-I am a female in her mid-20’s.

-I have some self-image and self-esteem issues that I’m still working through.

-I am fond of steampunk and neo-Victorian styles.

-I am a recently converted Zen Buddhist.

-I am a total nerd.

There might be more, but I’m sure you can pick it up as we go along.  Welcome to Cafe Le Shay.  Grab a cup of tea and take a seat.
