Testing the waters...

Yes. Eons have passed since I last updated. There are several reasons for this:

-I originally started this blog to write about my experiences during the summer. Summer is, for better or worse, over.

-Writing about my life requires a level of introspection that I haven't been able to muster as of late. Or rather, I've been mustering that level introspection but I haven't been mustering the will to put it into concrete terms. (As if bytes are concrete...)

-I truly have been busy this term. I know everyone at MIT is busy, but 69 units (5 and three-quarters classes) plus varsity athletics is crazy, even by the this crazy institute's standards.

-I have a fear of being boring. I don't want to write about things that bore you, or worse, about things that bore me.

-General disillusion. I hate disillusion. What a cop-out.

(This will be an interesting experiment. I bet most of my readership--vast subset of the population that it was--has given up on this thing. I know some of you, however, are probably still checking it--Mom, Dad...)

Ha! boring blogs like mine? :-P
(mostly I blog because I'm lonely and am hoping to get attention in some way...kinda sad, but that's being honest with myself).
