So, here it is. My first post on my first blog.
The reason I started this was as a sort of high-tech journal, allowing me to share moments, stories, and hopefully even multimedia with the rest of the world while I study abroad. After all, what's the point in going to Siena if you can't rub it in other people's faces? Still, I wanted to show things that I experience and events that I am part of with other people. It's a lot easier than really long phone conversations or really dense text messages.
Of course, this won't be one-way. Thanks to the beauty of the interwebz, people can comment when I post. It'll be more fun when I see comments on my page, things that'll mostly be saying, "Wow, Charlie, you're a moron," or "Damn, Charlie, you suck." At least that way it'll be like I never left.
This weekend I'll be driving to Nashville to visit my friends for the weekend. Considering that this is the first time that I won't be living within ten or twenty feet of my former roommates, this trip is a good way to transition from Vanderbilt to studying abroad. It'll also be nice to have a few last nights with my friends to do the things we did during the past semesters. Those things were always fun, why not continue while I'm still able to do so? I imagine the next few nights will be filled with soda, bad food, video games, and regret. Always make sure to bring in the regret.
Things will go here, soon.
