I guess that it's typical to inaugurate a new blogging project with some kind of introduction.
In grad school, lots of projects begin and end and no one beyond the project ever knows. That has certainly happened to me a lot. One of my goals in this space is to make sure that those projects at least have a place in the world.
Another goal is to give myself an additional reason to write every single day. Sometimes what I write won't end up here, sometimes it will. But at least I'll have another way to practice.
One other goal is to, eventually, use this space as a way of not just writing but conversing with someone other than myself. That is probably a long way off.
That's three goals and an introduction to this space and some of its reasons for existing.
