This isn’t a memo, it’s a mission statement.
I began this blog in early 2008 after months of thinking about it. I was scared to be honest in print. I was worried people would say I’m a terrible writer. I was afraid to be mocked behind my back. If nothing else, over the course of the past eight years, I’ve become more honest, more forthright and more confident because of it. Maintaining an honest journal here has been fun, it’s been an outlet for me from Rutgers to South Korea to Los Angeles to New Jersey to New York to DC to Baltimore. I’ve said so many things on here that I would have been embarrassed by once upon a time. Writing truthfully and putting it out there has given me a thicker skin. It also makes me happier. I sincerely recommend to every person reading this to try keeping your own blog, at least for a little while.
Thanks for reading, any comments are appreciated.
