Christin's Commonplace πŸ““

πŸ‘‹πŸΌ Hello! Welcome to 2021's version of christinchong.comβ€”This is a commonplace / η­†θ¨˜ where I share as much of my consciousness 🧠 in public as possible, with the goals of improving information capture and clarifying my thinking.

  • πŸ”οΈ I'm often found outdoors in the Sierra Nevada, hiking, fishing, and foraging with my wife and friends.
