I've toyed with the idea of blogging for a few years- typically during seasons of upheaval or change. It always seemed like a good way of expressing some of my thoughts, as well as a good way of recording my changing life.
I feel like I need to practice summarizing my thoughts and experiences- I have never been very good at expressing things concisely or very honestly in writing. Typically, my writing has two paths. Some of my email conversations or diaries are highly polished versions, cleaned up versions of the person I wish I was or what I wish my reaction had been. Or, I write when extremely emotional and then rip it up or delete later when I re-read it and get embarrassed about my emo-ness.
So, this is an attempt to change both extremes. Please bear with my rambles :)
