After many false starts. I’ve finally decided to get my ass in order and work on this blog.
Why a blog? Well I’m pretty bored is a good reason. Also, it’s a fun activity outside the hundrum of work. This site seems like a good place as any to start.
Other reasons include:
1) WordPress is free (yay)
2) I’ve got a lot to say and no one seems to want to listen (Thanks mom—for the last time, no I don’t want to eat more vegetables. Are you even listening to my awesome commentary about the advantages of waxing versus shaving?)
3) I’m not a journal person. Believe me, I’ve tried. I want to be one. Really really badly. But seriously, writing to a book of empty pages that can’t talk back is pretty boring. At least on a blog I have the possibility of having someone shout random bits of abuse at me.
For now, I’m stuck in Shenzhen, China for the next half a year so I’m going to do my best to attempt to mildy enjoy or at least not outright despise this rather grimy and unattractive metropolis. (More on Shenzhen later)
In the meantime, I hope you all will find some laughs or at least some respite from boredom here. Cheers to random rants and face-palming acts of embarrassment.
