I’m not sure what I’m doing here. I don’t totally know why I started a blog, except that I wanted an outlet. More than an outlet, I wanted a place to celebrate la vita bella, and this seemed much more fun than a journal! Reflection is an important part of learning, about myself and about the world, but I find it difficult to convince myself to dedicate time to it each day, even just for five minutes.
Wait…what am I doing here? What are you doing here?! Let’s be clear. This blog is for me, not you. If you want to read it, I’m okay with that; otherwise I’d be somewhat of a ridiculous person for posting it on the interwebs. But don’t expect any sort of theme. I can’t promise you anything. The purpose of the blog is to get myself to write, even just a little, and to create something that makes me happy.
Sometimes that means I’ll write about my family, but nothing too personal. (See “not being a ridiculous person” above.) Sometimes I’ll write about food or travel, both passions of mine. Sometimes I’ll write about math, because I teach math and it’s a beautiful thing. (Bet I caught you off guard with that one.) And sometimes I’ll write in Italian, not because I speak Italian but because I want to. And I need more practice.
Wait, I can promise you something! I will use correct grammar and spelling, except for too many commas and occasionally starting sentences with “and”. (See above.) Well, nobody’s perfect.
I think that’s a good start. Tomorrow, I’ll tell you a little bit about myself. Maybe. We’ll see. 🙂
