Welcome to my website.
My name is Kevin Sun. I'm currently a graduate student at Duke; my academic webpage is here. Thankfully, I'm the only person who satisfies this condition. I say this because there are a lot of Kevin Suns out there.
This website is mainly a compilation of things that I've written. I wouldn't call myself a writer, but I'm certainly trying to improve. Here are some thoughts I've had about evaluating friendships and imposter syndrome. Here are some other thoughts about algorithms, and why I recommend learning them. I've even written an entire mini textbook about them.
I also like to rank things. In particular, I currently have rankings for board games, books, and TV shows, and I plan on creating more in the future.
This website uses Google Analytics only for vanity purposes; I doubt there will ever be ads.
My email is "nusnivek [at] gmail [dot] com" — I'd love to hear from you, and please call me Kevin. You can also message me anonymously using this form.

Craving a non-student identity - 10/21
I'm almost 27, and I've been a student for as long as I can remember. But I'm also not super excited for what comes next: having a real job. Am I having a quarter-life crisis?
My first video - 08/21
I once made a video about a card trick, and here's a post reflecting on my experience.
