Reassessment

As I finish the seventh year of my online journal I thought it best to reassess my goals for this project. Initially it was a place for my friends and family to keep up with me as I hopped about the globe, but I haven’t been overseas in 2½ years. For quite a while it was an attempt to keep the writing juices flowing as I prepared to go back to school and make my way through all those assignments. My (academic) writing has certainly benefited from these less strenuous exercises on the side. After getting into the swing of graduate school again, it was here also that I played around with some creative projects, providing an outlet for a large part of me that otherwise would have gone untapped for far too long.

At this point, I don’t really know what I’m doing here. Or what I will do here, if anything. In some regards, this blog will continue serving the purposes stated above. But I also hope that it will serve something a little bit bigger than merely documenting my daily grind because, after all, it’s not really that interesting, is it? I will try to keep it smart even as my own intellect grows fuzzy. And I’ll try to live interestingly so that this little corner of cyberspace reflects some of that. Here’s to one more year, groping toward the light.
