Back in the saddle….

September 18, 2007 — 4 Comments

It seems in some odd way, I need a blog to think straight.

I first started using Xanga back when I went away to college the first time, circa 2003, down in good old Hudson, Florida. It was quite the phenomena on the Word of Life campus, both down in Florida and also the following year up in New York.

It wasn’t too long after I had been back home from 2nd year that I discovered Myspace, and 6 months or so later, converted to blogging from there. It was good catharsis at times, but also provided a public forum to express ideas, tell stories, and generally put thoughts into writing for friends to read.

Myspace unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your personal outlook) wore out its welcome over the course of this last summer, and it summarily got itself deleted. This was a step in the right direction, however, it left me without means to think out loud so to speak.

Enter Word Press.

Rather than recreate a Myspace, which ultimately would probably get deleted again, or restart a Xanga that would not probably get read, it was time for a new endeavor, and after a professor here at DTS gave me his card with his blog site on it, the only logical conclusion was to join the big leagues and once again refresh my mind by writing pointless anecdotes and overly philosophic explanations of life, much to my amusement at least.

So, hopefully this will be kept up quite regularly, and for those interested in keeping up, here is the place to start (phone calls can work as well).  Anyway, seeing as how opening at Starbucks now involves getting up at 4am, and there is an episode of Arrested Development calling my name, this will conclude my re-entry into blogland.
