The first post on this blog was on June 11, 2008. It featured a countdown of my three favorite versions of the song “Hallelujah” (k.d. lang coming out ahead). 622 posts later–by no means consistently added–the blog was essentially retired with a post on Christmas Day 2009.
It’s time for a meager re-birth.
Contemplating the end of what I consider the third chapter in my life (growing up, life in Champaign, law school)*, now seems an apt time to recommit to a bit of self reflection. This space might serve that purpose.
I’ve yet to fully appreciate how much life has changed in the last few years. That’s a bit untrue. Day to day life is not all that different. What’s different is my perception of my future. Where I’ll be living, what I’ll be learning, what I’ll be dreaming at the age of 26 is nothing I would have guessed at the age of 23.
It’s all quite exciting.
P.S. Looking at the new header, it now seems way too grad-student, self-important, philosophical-like. It needs lightening up. I’ll get to that eventually.
* To be condensed into one chapter once the book gets longer.
