i'm a little embarrassed to admit how many blogs i've tried to maintain over my 19 years. the number probably matches the number of diaries, journals, and daily planners i've failed to keep up. the story never fails: i start up a new thing, am eager to write in it day after day, and after a couple of weeks i discard any efforts. i don't think i've ever felt the joy of holding a book, all the pages filled with my writing, and known that at least a couple months of effort were put into it.
all that shall change with this blog.
here is my only new year's resolution: that i can look back on this same date in 2012 and have a whole year's worth of posts to enjoy. i don't have to write everyday and i don't always need to write something interesting. i just need to write.
so here it is: my nth try at this. i'm going to do it. look forward to greatness (or a semi-attempt)
