“The sharp edge of a razor is difficult to pass over; thus the wise say the path to Salvation is hard.”
I started this blog for a number of reasons.
First, I need a creative outlet. As a law student, I rarely have time outside my studying to pursue any kind of creative endeavor. When I do have some extra time, my brain needs a rest, and I’d rather be doing something less intense. Like watching movies. Or boozing.
Right now I am bursting with ideas, stories, reviews, experiences that I want to relate to others. This is the time to do it. I told Nikita the other day that when I came home from work in the evening, I nearly panicked from trying to decide what to do with spare time. Work on the script? Read Guns, Germs and Steel? Learn Dreamweaver so I can create websites? Draw some more stencils? Watch The Fountain one more time? And now, write a blog entry?
Second, I want to improve my writing skills.
Third, I want to write about, and relate to others, the things I like. Having so many passions is a blessing and a curse. I’m lucky to be inspired other people and their stories, experiences and creative works, but all that inspiration turns into a clusterfuck of ideas in my head. It’s easy to start a project, but it’s quite another thing to finish it. It’s also easy to go to law school, but it’s another thing to be a lawyer your whole life. The contents of this blog are diverse and cover a lot of what I’m interested in.
Fourth, and perhaps most importantly, I’m writing to figure out what my true passions are. This blog is a self-prescribed compass that I hope points me in the right direction.
