Happy Pi Day!!
Today is Pi Day. 3.14. Unfortunately the year is wrong… in 3 years, we will be able to celebrate 03.14.15 (at 9:26:53 am) which will be a very exciting day.
I’ve always been a math-y type, and have been fascinated by pi since I learned about it in 1st grade.
I learned a number of digits of it, and can rattle them off on command. Pi gives me comfort – it’s an infinite number, but never changing.

So happy pi day!
Today I wore my amazing PI shirt to celebrate:
Unfortunately, I did not make or eat any pie. There’s still time left though, maybe I’ll get on that before bed. (highly doubtful, but I can dream, right?) Go check out the awesome cake that Aspieside made for Pi day. It looks fantastic!
And finally, a cutsie math comic to finish out this short little post:
And if you haven’t already, please read my post about the Loud Hands Project, and go donate! They’ve only got about 28 hours left to raise money for this amazing cause (at the time of hitting publish, that is). I’ve now donated twice (yay for new month’s paycheck), and hope that if you haven’t heard about this fantastic Autistic advocacy project yet, you go do so, because it is so amazing and worthwhile. Thanks, and Happy PI day!
p.s. A major post (series of 2) is forthcoming. Stay tuned for either tomorrow or Friday for part 1. I have finals coming up next week so I’m going into study/hibernation mode, but I wrote most of it this morning while my car was getting serviced – it just needs polishing now. Hopefully it’ll be out soon.
