This is me.

I wish this was on my driver's license

(Oh yeah, did I mention there was going to be adult content on this blog?)  If you have a problem with the eff-word, you ought to...not read this.  I'm generally an intelligent, humorous, sarcastic person, and this will probably reflect that.  However, parts of this will probably not be terribly pleasant and I have the mouth of a sailor on a good day.  On a bad day...well, like I said, no one's forcing you to read this.  This is in no way meant to be a professional representation of me or my career.  If you want that, I'm happy to give it to you, but not here.  E-mail me, we can talk (write?).

I'm writing this first part about a week before I leave Boulder.  I figured this would document some of the funny, weird, terrible but hopefully interesting stuff I find.  It will probably get mundane fast, or I'll get too busy fast, but this seems like kind of a fun exercise.

I've written my whole life.  I can't really remember being illiterate, nor can I remember not trying to put a story together.  99.999% of it has been absolute shit, but growing up, it was one of the best ways I could express myself and let my imagination run wild.  This continued through high school (I even had a brief stint as a paid journalist), but it kind of fizzled out in college.  I guess I didn't have much to say.

However, when I was in Austria the first time, I wanted to write again.  I don't know why I didn't, except for stupid sappy bullshit. Think total clusterfuck--I was there when the damn volcano blew, didn't know when I was going home and consequently graduated in a complete jet-lagged haze.  It was fun.  I mean, it was a hell of an experience, but for the first time, I had something to write about that was awesome and funny.  I might revisit some of that in a bit, but we'll start with the basics.

I'm moving here:

my life is obviously going to be hard

Yeah, this is ugly.  Nothing to see here.

I'm going to pursue a Master's and Ph.D. in physics.
I leave 15 Sept for Philadelphia.  I watch my cousin Alice get married.  I leave 19 Sept for Munich, landing early on the 20th.  From there, my father, his girlfriend Deedy and I will travel by train to Innsbruck. They will have a lovely vacation that should involve buying me a lot of beer, then they will leave on some sightseeing, returning at some point to the U.S.
Meanwhile, it's the first day of the rest of my life.

  1. You make it pretty easy for me to stalk you, but it was a hell of a lot easier when you never left my side...
