Hello world!

Dear World,

I am finally doing what I've been set on since age five: seriously starting a diary. This digital medium alleviates some of my journaling anxiety (no pretty notebooks to worry about ruining!) and provides some motivation (I love following others' posts here, perhaps someone will be reading mine), so I may yet stick with it. I can also see some real appeal in nerding out over every aesthetic and functional setting I can get my hands on. This thing has a console? It warns me about digging into my CSS? Oh, yes please.

I can see by this point that I'll still encounter obstacles in the physical world, though: Achilles Snaggletooth, purring, kneading, and wrapped around my arm, periodically reaches out one precise paw to pull my hand back under his fuzzy head.

It's a daunting idea, writing about my own thoughts. I haven't written anything remotely creative, unless you count terrible spur-of-the-moment poetry, in about 15 years, and since then my writing has been entirely essays and research papers, business emails, chats, and educational articles. Will I develop my own voice? That remains to be seen.

From here on out, posts will be locked. Let's do this thing.

If I had more room here, I would offer an inspirational Powerpoint presentation designed just for you. In the beginning, I would seize your attention with an evocative image that my marketing department had determined would give you a visceral thrill. (Like maybe a photoshopped image of you wearing a crown and holding a scepter.) In the next part, I would describe various wonderful and beautiful things about you. Then I'd tactfully describe an aspect of your life that's underdeveloped and could use some work. I'd say, "I'd love for you to be more strategic in promoting your good ideas. I'd love for you to have a well-crafted master plan that will attract the contacts and resources necessary to lift your dream to the next level."
