So in all fairness, I must tell you this is not my first blog.
I had a Xanga in high school (back when MySpace was THE thing to do), when I was a student at the Mississippi School for Mathematics & Science (MSMS) from 2002-04. And I also kept a blog during a study abroad experience in 2009 when I was in Italy–Blogger.com, maybe?
The blog I kept while attending MSMS was only read by a few of my friends and perhaps some random strangers who stumbled upon it online. My travel blog was read by friends and family. I wish I could say I still owned the latter, but unfortunately, I lost my then-Google account password/access and was never able to prove it belonged to me so that I could access it.
Alas, I digress.
Here it is 2017 and I am starting a new blog. I’m looking forward to using this space for reflection. To be honest, I feel kind of shaky-kneed getting started, but as time goes on but I know that feeling will fade.
