In computer programming, the || operator is used for concatenation - that is, the joining of two things together.
So it's a logical structure for me, a fourth-year Aerospace Engineering student simultaneously minoring in Creative Writing. The combination gets me a lot of double takes, but I like being something of a Renaissance Man.
I also have interests in animation, video editing, backpacking, sailing, karate, geography, politics, and women's issues. Expect posts about a lot of different things!
