I’m Cara Stein. I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but I took a roundabout way of getting here. Among other relics of career change and self-reinvention, I have a PhD in computer science, assorted programming skills, several years’ teaching experience, and advanced skills in wasting a whole afternoon surfing the internet.
I’m the founder of 17,000 Days, a blog about remembering that life is short and making your best days a common occurrence. Whether you're stuck, lost, or just looking to enjoy your life more, I’ve been there! I can provide advice, guidance, and vision.
