November 2023 note: I am soon planning on migrating the website from wordpress.com to wordpress.org. This is a technical change that should not affect the website content. However, it will allow me to fix minor technical issues and greatly improve the quality of the site beyond its current state. I will be able to focus on adding new content once the migration is complete, at which point I will update this note.
