Can you change the wordpress title so it matches for the time being?

Just go ahead and do this in wordpress for the time being I think. All
wordpress pages that don't match an existing section (i.e. /work/,
/stats/, /search/) automatically get handled by wordpress.

My suggestion is to create a page located at e.g. /essays/ and then
located all essays under that (just choose parent page in wordpress
side menu)

Hmmm, that Sunday might be problematic. What about this Sunday 16th?
