My First Blog Ever

Well, hello noone. I bet you didn't even know I was here...
I'm setting up a blog.
Why? A strange thing has happened to me, that I hate to admit, because it messes with my ludite status... That is that sometimes I think better now when I type. For this reason, and a few others, I have not been writing in my journal as much as I used to. So I'm using this as a vehicle to write more.
Also, I've gotten excited about having a blog where people can go to learn more about our upcoming wedding.
And last, I want my students to blog next quarter, so I wanted to see how hard it is... It doesn't seem very hard so far.
Dan Plies reminded me recently that I am overly obsessed with wanting to be different than everyone else. Whatever the hell that means, he's right. As I type this I think about all of the other people who have started a blog for the exact same reason. I remember when I was a kid someone told me that perhaps someone in the world looked exactly the same as me (oh, yeah, it was Edie Brickell) and I thought that was such an amazing possibility. Now the sameness depresses me.

Maybe that's enough for now.
