And So It Begins

Periodically (habitually it seems) I get the urge to blog. It never ceases to amaze me how dedicated people are to blogging. There are blogs that have been ongoing for 5+ years. I don't have that kind of attention span, really. Eventually I get bored with what I'm saying, and the blog falls by the wayside, and months after I've forgotten about it, I delete it, and potentially start a new one (like today). I don't fully grasp the appeal of blogging. Maybe it's the thrill of being self-published (of sorts). When you stop to think about it though, it seems pretty pretentious, like, My thoughts are so incredibly important and relevant that the whole world should be privy to them. (No wonder the trend caught on so fast.) 

So why am I blogging? Well, fittingly, I'm a pretentious English major who feels her thoughts are incredibly important and relevant, and I need a venue aside from writing papers for professors who could probably care less about what an insignificant undergraduate has to say about anything.

I'm not making this blog some grand endeavor, just a place to voice book reviews, the occasional music review, or rant about the education system. Nothing earth-shattering. Maybe nothing interesting to you; in that case, bummer.
