Why this blog

Excuse me, “Publication”. “Blog” sounds so early 2000's.

There are more than enough people on Medium dishing out advice, so I’m not going to add to the noise. I just need a place to dump my thoughts, that’s all. I’ve been posting my Coursera Creative Writing Specialization assignments on Medium the past few months, and well, I figured I might as well do my stream-of-consciousness braindumps here as well.

Again, I’m not here to dish out any advice. Not here to preach anything either. I just need the catharsis of writing about my random ruminations on my day-to-day life, that’s all. Our family’s been going through some trying times lately, and I guess I need catharsis now more than is usual for me.

I’m doing this for myself, for my own sanity, so I don’t care so much about stats. Neither do I care about comments… er, responses nor highlights from anybody else. If there were a way to disable comments (responses), I would. But I don’t think I’m important enough to warrant a comment (response!) anyway, so what the hell, I’ll just write here.

So yeah. Here goes nothing.
