The Beginning

Some people make New Year's resolutions on January 1st. Others use the Asian or lunar calendars, or even the beginning of a school year as a time to reflect and set new goals and lofty ambitions.

For my part, I find mid-February during my school's reading week to be particularly conducive to resolutions. This is a time of relaxation, when the overwhelming flood of work from school is temporarily (oh so temporarily) held at bay and there is suddenly time to contemplate life after assignments. It is also a foreboding time, with midterm exams looming and grades hanging in the air. Together, boredom and guilt are very strong motivators, matched only by years of procrastination experience to channel the need to be productive away from studies and into wild ventures such as acting a musical, building a snowman, or starting a blog.

So here we are.
