I recently used their API to make a text expander for ESV verses, using AutoHotkey. (Note that AutoHotkey is a Windows-only utility, so if you’re on another OS this won’t be of much use.)

I took hundreds of photos while I was in France, but recently selected and organized a handful of my favorites. Take a look!
So 2016 draws to a close at last. For some of my friends, it is already over. As I spend the final hours of this year, I want to give thanks.
This year has not been an Instagram moment. There is a time for everything, including difficult and painful things. Even so, I am grateful for 2016.
- I’m thankful for my family and friends, old and new. I’m thankful for the music we made together, for the words, and for the laughter.
- I’m thankful for the summer I spent in Boston, for CTK Cambridge, and for the fine folks at InterSystems.
- I’m thankful for the chance I had to study abroad in France, for my time at L’Abri, and for a Thanksgiving break spent in Germany and Austria.
- I’m thankful for Grove City College and the amazing people there.
- I’m thankful for the time I’ve had to read and think and pray.
- Most of all, I’m thankful for promises that cannot fail.
Tomorrow is a new year. But it’s also a new day, and we have the promise that “his mercies are new every morning” (Lamentations 3:23).
You mustn’t wish for another life. You mustn’t want to be somebody else. What you must do is this: “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks.” I am not all the way capable of so much, but those are the right instructions.
― Wendell Berry, Hannah Coulter
Until I saw it, I had not begun to know. A perfectly lovely shore, with sands and shells meeting the breakers of a vast blue ocean, was once more red than blue.
We first came to Ponte du Hoc. Situated between Utah Beach and Omaha Beach, it was a high point held by the Germans and taken by the US Army Rangers on D-Day.

As my professor says, it’s amazing how much your life can change in twenty-four hours. You can cross an ocean and find yourself in a new country, with a very different culture – all while jetlag chides you for being awake at an unearthly hour.
This semester, I am studying in Nantes, France, continuing my engineering classes and doing my senior design project* while also getting to learn French and travel Europe. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! I’d like to introduce you, through pictures and prose, to this world that I’ve known for a little over three weeks.
