I've always been an avid developer.
Programming is one of my main hobbies, but WebDev is where I started.
A lot of heavy lifting is also done by Bootstrap and jQuery.
Backend work is mostly done by a LAMP stack.
Exhibit A: The background here.
This background was made in Blender, a
for modeling, animating and compositing digital scenes.
This specific scene was made for CGI club, a club I ran at Lisgar in my infinite boredom and free time.
I am one of those few people that love math.
To program, one must know at least basic math.
Video game programming requires a heck of a lot of math (vectors, etc.)
Either way, I'm that kid that does calculus and loves to blow people out of the water if at all possible (cf. this website)
Science ▶ Physics / Chemistry
This was one of my first hobbies.
I always loved to see how the world worked, why it worked that way, etc.
Now I'm getting myself into quantum physics (a.k.a. humanity is stumped now, help us), and I used to have memorized the majority of the periodic table, when that was still popular to do.
I love etymologies.
I also love ancient languages.
This explains why my favorite quote is in Latin, I can read/write Latin, and I can read the original manuscripts of the Bible in Greek.
(PS: Latin is really hard to learn. Would not recommend. 1/5)
For those of you who don't know what xkcd is, it's an amazing webcomic by Randall Munroe. He also makes cool books like Thing Explainer, and xkcd is one of my favorite internet time-wasters/cool things.
Seize the day
Dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum...res cogitans id est dubitans, affirmans, negans, pauca intelligens, multa ignorans, volens, nolens, imaginans etiam, et sentiens
I doubt, therefore I think, therefore I am...a thing that thinks – that is, a thing that doubts, affirms, denies, knows a bit, is ignorant of much, wants, does not want, imagines likewise, and feels.

Who am I?
James /ˈd͡ʒeɪms/ : from Latin Iacomus (somehow), from Iacobus (idk how this works), from Greek Ἰακώβος, from Ἰακώβ, Jacob (ummm)
Okay, so I have the same name as Jacob. Language is weird. Then again, somehow the word "meh" is a thing.
Well hello there! Nice to see that you're reading this. Have you gotten bored yet? Just press "yes" or "no".
