Welcome to my new blog!
I’m starting a blog today because I’d like to get in the habit of writing more often and sharing my thoughts and ideas with the world. (Also, our cat Mani woke us up at 4:30 AM and I couldn’t stop thinking about starting this blog. So, here we are 4 hours later with a fresh new WordPress website.)
I’ve tried to start blogs before… when I was in high school I thought blogging could be my career. I saw what professional bloggers had created at that time and I would spend hours setting up and tweaking the perfectly designed blog. After a few months (or years) of inactivity, the project would inevitably fail and maybe I would try again after a year or two. In hindsight, I realize now that I didn’t have much to say or share with the world at that time…
Things are different now though. I’m a quarter of the way through my career and I have a lot of life-experience. I’ve been truly lucky in the opportunities that have come my way, and now I’m trying to pave a new path forward for myself (and hopefully create some opportunities for others in the process). This blog is incredibly important for me now. In the past year, I’ve realized I can’t do this journey alone.
My goal for this blog, as with many things that I do, is to learn as much as possible. Maybe, if I’m lucky, someone else will stumble upon my writings and learn something as well.
