A Blog is Born

Well, what does one say in a first blog? I could say something about how society has conditioned me to begin the blog with a question such as the one I just posed.

I guess I’ll begin the blog by talking about why I want to start this in the first place. Throughout the day I see things and experience situations that I form an opinion about. A blog seems like an ideal place to express theses opinions. I’d also like to analyze not only the situations I encounter but also my opinions and the reasons why I have formed them.

Another reason I’d like to start this blog is to give me a place to fine tune my writing skills. I like to write, but I don’t do nearly enough of it. By keeping a detailed log of my experiences and obeservations, I will be able to practice expressing myself in an intelligent, comprehensible manner.

Finally, I hope this blog will give me something to look back on in the future. I want it to serve as something of a record of a journey. I want to be able to read it years from now and see how I have become the person that I will be in the future. How have I changed? How have I stayed the same?

Ok, I know I said “Finally,” so I shouldn’t say anything more, but I will anyway. You may see as you read this blog that I tend to be sarcastic and somewhat satirical at times. Please realize that this is entirely on purpose.
