Blah blah blah blah Blah blah ..oh, you’re actually reading this? Cool!

Hello and welcome to my homepage!

My favorite food is the donut. Specifically a Krispy Kreme caramel-glazed one with chocolate hot fudge. Without the sprinkles. And with the hole of course.

See, I believe that donuts with holes are 554 times better than donuts without them. That is why my username is Donuts554. 554 is the “golden ratio” between donuts without the holes and donuts with the holes.

Ooooh oh, and I also like some Japanese food, like okonomiyaki (i really wish they changed the name). Its like a noodle cake kind of thingy that is very savory.

Ironically I have never eaten that before! I am not much of a traveler but I have been to several foreign places.

I like to play Foldit because I want to help science. Science is one of my favorite subjects at school. But sometimes it gets really boring.

Anyways I hope you enjoy visiting my page! Now back to what I was saying so my page looks normal and boring like my textbook. Blah blah blah blah

I'm an artist who raised 2 scientist children. I thought this was a good way to put my visual abilities to use.

I'm just on here because I saw all the corona virus challenges and was hoping to make a difference.
