Hi everyone! I go by Lalitha. I’m a research scientist in my mid-30s and there’s a lot of coding at work-- but I’m really new to it! Right now, I mostly use and tweak the programs that other people write.
My favorite way to be active is tai chi. As for things to eat, I’ll go with sushi, please! But pho is a close second, and I love trying new foods. My favorite shows are the Battlestar Galactica remake, RuPaul’s Drag Race, and the 1967 classic, The Prisoner. I love reading, and some of my favorite books are Catherynne Valente’s Fairyland series. There’s something so magical about them! I wish they existed when I was a kid, but they are still completely amazing to read as an adult.
I’m super excited about my Jewelbot. I want to use it as a self-care reminder! I can imagine it breathing blue to remind me to drink a glass of water, flashing red when it’s time for a stretch-my-legs break, and doing a purple-buzz combo for five minutes of mindfulness. This is important to me because I’m battling clinical depression (I’m getting lots of help for it), but I think self-care is important for everyone!
