I'm Alex Kearney, a PhD student studying Computer Science at the University of Alberta. I focus on Artificial Intelligence and Epistemology.


Everyone is talking about finding gray hairs from the stress of 2020.

I just found a white beard hair, so maybe I’ll age into a wizard instead.


FORECAST: My guess is that houseplants are going to be the popular hobby in winter covid. Plants are to winter-covid as bread-baking was in spring-covid.

I was at a hardware store recently, and the garden section was still hopping despite being out of season here.

Loads of friends are currently picking up green friends to keep over the snowy months. Most of the local plant shops seem to be low on stock.

An artist I follow recently did painting of a plant that they wanted to trade for cuttings of said plant.

More progress on the sourdough front. Ended up doing a dough-drop at my uncle’s


Me during quarantine: I should make sourdough bread.

Everyone else on twitter: I should make sourdough bread.


Looking for a quarantine activity? Try selling tarantulas to the raccoons that live down the street.


I’m on my way home a bit early from my internship. I’m truly fortunate my team was flexible in letting work from home in my real home.

Going to isolate myself for two weeks just to be safe.

It feels so good to be on a plane.
