Welcome to the start of my blog. In all honesty, I'm not sure how I feel about blogs. What is this new craze of writing ones thoughts for the whole world to see, whether that be blogging, Facebook, or Twitter? Is it good? Is it healthy? What will the repercussions of this tailored transparency be on our generation? I'm conflicted, but I think that's okay. That's mainly what this blog is going to be about; me, wrestling with my thoughts in a way that forces me to articulate them. That is, after all, the way I learn best. This blog has three purposes: 1) for me to organize my thoughts, 2) to let people know what I'm up to, and 3) to hopefully encourage others. Warning: this semester I have learned that I am certainly not an English major, and I won't pretend to be. I will have oodles and oodles of grammar errors and spelling mistakes, as well as a bajillion made up words and as many sound effects as a room full of eight-year-old boys. There may not be a rhyme or a reason for the topics I write about, or any sort of consistency to when I write them, but as I've never been a blogger before, we'll just see what happens! I'd love to hear your inputs. Thanks for reading!
