title: "365 Days - May Status Update"
date: 2021-05-21
draft: false

Can I write this in 26:30 before it turns to 2021-05-22 in UTC-4? Well, no time for an intro, let's get right into it!

It's been a year since my very first [blog post](/blog/sway-rng/) on this blog. Throughout that time I've written 16 articles which amounts to an average of 1⅓ posts per month — higher than my 1 per month goal. I *did* miss some monthly status updates, but at least I wrote quite a few separate posts about CTFs and other projects.

Moving on to whatever I've been working on the past month and a half, it really hasn't been much. At the beginning of this month [I wrote](/blog/ecoo-2021/) about my experience hosting the 2021 ECOO Programming Contest which was a joy to be a part of. A week ago my team *Teapot* participated in the Canadian National Finals round of the [CyberTitan](https://www.cybertitan.ca/) IV cybersecurity competition where we placed first. It was our second year of competing so we were all rather proud of our result.

Regarding the future, I hope to keep writing blog posts and hope to do so with a higher frequency. I've got some plans coming up to write about my new 2FA setup with the [SoloKeys](https://solokeys.com) [Solo v1](https://solokeys.com/collections/all/products/solo-usb-a) that I recently purchased. I also got a [PineTime](https://www.pine64.org/pinetime/) development kit some time ago so hopefully I'll make a little game and post about that as well. With regards to the COVID-19 situation around the world, I haven't mentioned it on my blog, but I do hope that everyone stays safe, gets vaccinated, and manages to get through it. Maybe we can even get this to be the third disease[^2] to ever be eradicated[^1]... though that would be a long time away, if ever.

*Wew, only minutes to spare.*
