Updated My Blog to Act Like a Feed

It’s been many months since I took myself off from Facebook and Instagram. My mental health and professional life is a lot better since then.

However, I miss posting updates on social media. Especially pics of the food I cook & eat, my cat Squanchy, beautiful Oaxaca, and some personal stuff. And of course, my political and geeky rants.
