samskivert: Joining the club

01 January 2004

I can’t say that I have a strong feeling about blogs one way or the other. I had a short lived fling with LiveJournal, but we parted ways amicably many months back as I was feeling guilty for being so neglectful.

Given the arrival of the New Year and my own arrival in Tokyo just two days past, I figured it was time to rekindle the flame with self-indulgence, lacking style and banal commentary. Thus, I’ve joined the club of geeks abroad taking advantage of the miracle of the Internet to bore unsuspecting readers with their experiences and reflections.

Really I’m doing this so that I won’t feel so guilty about shirking the responsibility of keeping in touch with my friends back home. Plus, I’m sure all this English writing will do wonders for my Japanese.
