The Introduction

January 27, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’ve always been a sucker for memories. Since I was born, my family has kept photo albums, home videos, and every possible piece of childhood memorabilia you could imagine. I’ve kept up this trend, for the most part at least, with journals, a dream log, pictures, and a strange collection of ticket stubs. And yet I’m not even sure why.

I guess mostly I just don’t want to be forgotten. I see all those great men – scientists, philosophers, world leaders – who keep detailed notes of their lives. That way, when a crazy man runs to them and screams, “I want to write a book about you!” they can just hand the man their journals and never have to deal with the crazy again.

Yeah, I’ll be famous.

I’ve tried keeping a paper journal twice, an electronic one three times, and a blog more times than I can count, only for it to slowly die down as my laziness prevails. But writing has an odd sort of calm about it. Whether I’m any good at it, I can’t say. (Well, that’s a lie. I know looking back at my journals from 3 years ago, I was a miserable writer.)

In the end, I hope for this blog to be three things:

1) A way for me to express myself in the traditional, artsy-fartsy way
2) A mini-glimpse into my life and some of the stuff that goes on
3) A place for me to post interesting articles, websites, or whatever else I find

$50 to charity says I’m not keeping this up in a year.

    You owe money to a charity.
