About Me:

Pictures from the 2007 HSA Reunion can be found at:

The first photos (up to the juggling) were taken by Angela the twin with my camera while I was playing frisbee.

Again, some were taken by Angela the twin with my camera while I was busy.


I'm currently a grad student working on my PhD in Robotics at GA Tech. I got my masters in Electrical Engineering and my bachelors in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on robotics at Missouri University of Science and Technology (known as University of Missouri - Rolla until January 2008), but I have a wide variety of interests that I actively pursue. I enjoy birdwatching in my spare time and my photography and painting is an attempt to capture the beautiful detail that I see in God's creation while I am out trekking around. My website, usually in need of updating, can be found at www.adam-nisbett.com. Our family blog (with random accounts and pictures by various members of the family) is at www.nisbett.blogspot.com.

Friends Notes:

Re: blog comment

Very good point. I agree. I do tend to actually like reading theological type of books (though I don't usually finish the whole thing) - not necessarily commentaries so much though... I was just wondering about the overall effect they have. But I think you're right... we can come up with flawed ideas all on our own. I guess that in one sense, it can be beneficial then to hear others' opinions because then we can see different ways of looking at it, and figure out if the way we look at it is correct, and see what views actually match up with the Bible.

Thanks for the comment! Made me think!

Thanks for the blog post' Smile wow you sound like you enjoy math! Smile I didn't figuer it out (well I didn't even try lol) but it was fun to ask others, like my bro (James) cuz he won't stop thinking of a problem until he figures it out, it was fun to watch him do. Very Happy

Blog comment reply: thanks for the link I will put it on the reading list.
I agree with your points so much and I feel we are seeing this war being raged on the church over the last years because of it. Keep the Christians from seeing truth like the world and they will just go along with it all like the world. I think I am going to do a blog post on that next.

Re: blog comment. Thanks for commenting! Reacting well to emergencies and new situations is very impressive, I agree.
Maybe it is wisdom I was describing more than smartness...I just use the word smart more than I use the word wise. Maybe it's the best kind of smartness? Smile

Oh yeah, that's true. HSA is extreme that way. I keep running into Texas homeschoolers I never met before, and they're nowhere on HSA. If they were, things would look more balanced.

Re: blog comment. Thanks for commenting! Nice to meet another Texan.
Yep, that's the classic definition of where home is...where your friends and family are. Someday I mean to visit Missouri just to see how many homeschoolers there really are there....it seems to have such a high HS population compared to other states!

What?! How can they?

Olivia has had us start watching David Tennant now that they are available on amazon prime. He actually seems fairly similar to Matt Smith so far.

Well, I don't know... I'm still grieving the loss of Rory. :'( Honestly, I've sort of lost interest in continuing with the series now...I'm sure we'll get back to it, but it's just going to take some time to get over this tragedy . . .
