My name is Pooya and all the articles on Dianoetic are my own work. I began blogging in 2013, the first year of doing professional research in geotechnical engineering. A few months into my studies I was convinced that I was done with engineering, that I couldn’t get any satisfaction from doing it, not even in the research sector (although I still believe research is the most fun you can get in engineering). I had to do something to keep me going while I looked for a way out. And writing on Think with a Hammer was the answer.
Since then, I’ve tried to keep up writing as regularly as possible. Although, there were many periods in which life got in the way and I became so busy I couldn’t blog for months.
By the beginning of 2016, when I finally put an end to my engineering career, I decided to take writing more seriously. I used my acquaintance with computers and coding to build my own website and migrate more important pieces from Think with a Hammer to Dianoetic. At first, I developed and designed everything myself, using HTML5 and CSS3. The result looked good but the maintenance and update required so much time. And time is a luxury I haven’t had in years. So, I went back to WordPress, this time in the form of a website.
The result is what you see here. I hope you enjoy it. If you have any feedback, comment or suggestion, I would love to hear from you. You can contact me via:
