when i started it, i was inspired by the idea that i could take the ideas out of my head and put them in a place where people could stumble upon them. not so much because my ideas are extra-special-great or anything, but because in the aggregate, the weblogs i was reading at the time had this eerie tendency to touch upon subjects that i happened to be finding intriguing or confusing independently. and i wanted to contribute to that.
have i wrote before that i feel guilty doing domestic chores?
really. graduate school makes you feel bad about putting away the dishes when you should be studying for a final exam. not just that i don’t have the time, but that doing the chore is actually below me. that i see the five minutes i spend putting away the dishes with every domestic chore i’d ever perform over the course of my life, and it amounts to such an obscene amount of time that i couldn’t possibly have any time to do anything else in life.
so i put away the dishes anyway.
