New Year, new posts, new ideas, same old incoherency.

so it’s been months since i’ve posted anything. and much of that is because of a general personal malaise, tied to the past year or so (well, eighteen months) has been a cavalcade of suck. much of that has been mitigated lately, both due to life choices i’ve managed to make and new medication (woohoo! better living through chemistry!).

and with that mitigation has come a new resolution to post more (and semi-regularly) on this blog.

among other things, i am now an English major. no more EE, no more CompSci, no more maths, etc. i have come to the conclusion that my brain is not now (and may never have been) structured or prepared for the rigors of a scientific career. not that i’m dumb (though i reserve the right to be dumb independently), it’s just my thought processes don’t seem to be willing to flow in a way as to do stuff like generate coherent, functioning code (i can read the stuff, though. so that’s marginally useful).

as an English major, i will be writing quite a bit more. so don’t be surprised if i share some of those assigned ramblings here. also don’t be surprised if they’re formatted differently or even readable; i tend to write differently for “publication” than i do for informal, conversational outlets like this one. go figure.

i’m also going to try to do at least one post a week that isn’t an English assignment of some sort. political ramblings, beer criticism, car kvetching, comic book raves, whatever. some may be conglomerate posts or spasms of web link rehashes. you never know. but more free product for you. so enjoy, happy readers!

    i think i read a column in the George Street Observer in which you had included your blog address, and since you were someone i knew from class i went ahead and stuck the RSS feed in my Google Reader account. i’ve been vicariously rather enjoying your life in Europe, by the way.
