  Wow, my very first post.

I gave in. I couldn't take it any longer. I'm jumping on the tail end of a trend. A trend I loathed and slandered (inside my HEAD) at the beginning.

I wanted to think that I wasn't that self-absorbed. But I am, and everyone knows it. But I still thought, "Who would want to read my bullshit?" I found myself reading others' bullshit, however. First my friends, then friends of friends, then I found myself reading the blogs of people I didn't even know. Complete strangers. I regularly concern myself with the lives of complete strangers who have uninteresting lives. Why do I do it?

First, I have to say my muse is Jen at www.allaboutjen.com. She's awesome. I laugh, I cry. I want to write like that too.

And here's the silliest thing. It's so silly, I can't believe I'm admitting it here, to the world, to the one person (me) who is reading this. When I graduate, I want to be a writer.

If that doesn't sound too silly, just egotistical, consider that I'm studying physics right now. I want to graduate, get a meaningless job, and write. Write what? Anything good? We'll see. I think it's an exciting decision--to decide to pursue a career in something I'm not even sure I'd succeed at. That's why I'm studying physics, I guess, so why not try my hand at writing? If I succeeded at physics, then maybe I'll succeed at writing. We'll see. In the meantime, I'll just masturbate here.
