I have started a number of blog entries and left them unfinished. There was a massive run of a lot of things, including, but not limited to, finishing the thesis (very anticlimactic, and that's all I have to say about that), a trip to O-Hi-O to visit family and friends, a well--needed vacation to the southern Caribbean (I might talk about that later), and returning to work. I'm writing this entry for solely meta-blogging reasons, to kick start some real writing back off again. It's been a while.
On another note, chiral groups preserve handedness, while achiral groups do not.
