I realized that in the previous post I made one very simple assumption: that it was good to have a blog. For the longest time, I would have disagreed with that statement so I thought it would be good to talk about why I now think that it is important.
In high school, I wrote a lot. In every class, I was accustomed to writing many papers and would normally also write outside of class for fun (I think I deleted all my drafts for novels…). Unfortunately, I have not had the chance to do much writing since coming to college and because of that I have seen my ability to record my thoughts decline as my writing has become both less eloquent and less expressive. I think the worst moment for me last year was when I read a paper I wrote and realized that all I had managed to do was regurgitate facts not even making it sound nice, the thing I hated the most in high school. Having a blog I post to semi-regularly will hopefully give me enough of a reason to write, and about interesting things, that I keep doing it. Additionally, it does seem nice sometimes to have a place to write when I just want to talk about something.
Anyways, this should be the last meta post I make for a while (though I could very easily be wrong about that).
