I have been a terrible blogger, and truthfully, being paid to write (underpaid, but none the less, paid) has created a lazy monster which prevents my thoughts from exploding onto a page that doesn’t grace the fine quality newsprint of The Meliorist.
Now that I am unemployed, and stuck doing a Chemistry class to complete my degree, I feel that the future holds limitless free time and no excuse for lack of writing.

At least one thoughtful, current event related post a week.

At least one piece of poetry a week.

Beginning May first, 2010.
