I’ve thought about creating a “public” blog for some time. In the past, I’ve had other blogs, but these were usually attached to another social networking website (in the case of Bebo and deviantArt) or were only known to a couple other friends (as in the case of the friends who introduced me to Xanga, LiveJournal, and deviantArt). For whatever reason, I’ve wanted to follow in the footsteps of my friends and acquaintances who have “public” blogs that they link to via Facebook. I’m not exactly sure why I chose today to create this blog, though. I only got about 3.5 hours of sleep last night, and I drank an energy drink several hours ago, so I’m going to blame some combination of sleep deprivation and caffeine, I guess.
Anyway, unlike some of the people I know, I am not doing anything particularly exciting at the moment. I’m not travelling through Southeast Asia, studying abroad in Europe, or serving in the Peace Corps, and I’m not currently trying to start or run a business, though I will be moving later this month and next month I’ll start classes, so that’s sort of exciting, in a “quotidian and unexceptional” rather than “worthy of envy and acclaim” manner. This might be an appropriate usage of #firstworldproblems.
Anyway, enough of my whining. There’ll be plenty of time for that later. For now, I think I’ll end this with a few of my recent obsessions.
Game: Crusader Kings II (Paradox Interactive, 2012) [There will definitely be more on this later]
Song: “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” (Bob Dylan, 1963)
Album: We Are the Pipettes (The Pipettes, 2006)
