So...do you like stuff?...

well, this seems silly.

but the other day I got to thinking*, "I really love some of my friends' blogs. I love that they're contributing." And then later that night I thought "I wish there were a place I could go just to communicate for the sake of communicating." Is this blog worthy? Not really. Is this a self-conscious post? Absolutely.**

So, here it is. I'm not promising genius, and I'm certainly not promising consistency. And for the life of me I can't remember what I wanted to blog about the other day. But I think I hope that this might become a space I really care about. In all likelihood its archives will soon change from casual, uncomfortable and awkward ideas to rants about the (North American?) post-secondary education system, stories of the strange people I meet on my walks home, and more rants about babies.

Anyhow, here's hoping. OH and I thought of a question that ought to be asked: what's the greatest compliment you've ever received?

Once a very dear, very stunning woman told me that I was her church. And then I got blown over by the wind.


*this is a phrase I think ought to be used more often.***
**A term that ought to be used more often.

***there should also be more footnotes in the world.

i support this endeavour. i have myself, starting today, decided to write for at least 15mins every day and publish it either daily, or in a 5-sectioned weekly digest. i challenge you to write something, anything, every day. date it and then put it up at the end of the week.
