About this stranger

Hello, stranger! Should I be worried that you want to learn more about me?

I’m Isaac Blake, a pretentious high school student, lover of nature, and computer nerd. I plead guilty to spending far more time alone than with other humans.

TL;DR (because I can talk about myself forever): Here’s a bunch of my favorite stuff; I’ve noticed that listing these has been a popular trend lately:

  • Favorite show: Avatar: The Last Airbender
  • Favorite movie: Song of the Sea
  • Favorite song (changes weekly): 1000 Nights by FRENSHIP
  • Favorite video game: LEGO Universe
  • Dream vacation: Iceland (again), Yellowstone
  • Favorite computer: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
  • Favorite operating system for coding: Raspbian
  • Favorite operating system for gaming: Windows (duh?)
  • Random hobbies: Photography, coding, learning Spanish, doing homework

I have a passion for nature, and spend hours outside each day (in my imaginary world). State and national parks give me sustenance.

Messing with computers has been a longstanding hobby for me; I’ve been playing with HTML and JavaScript since I was 11. This site is hosted on GitHub Pages, stemming from the Jekyll Now theme with a few changes to layout and CSS. I’m currently learning Python for an indoor, IoT greenhouse I’m designing. I have experience running various kinds of servers, from Minecraft (yeah, I know) to PHP on Apache and NGINX.

Since visiting Iceland in the summer of 2016 and exploring Icelanders’ creative uses of geothermal energy, I’ve dreamed of connecting Mother Nature with computers. By pursuing a career in environmental engineering, I’m hoping doing so is not as paradoxical a task as it sounds.
