It’s been a while. Time to turn over a new leaf!

I know that not many people read this (mostly friends), but I want to write more often. I also want to take this opportunity to improve my writing skills, which are not up to the level I’d like them to be. There is only one way to improve my writing skills, and that is to practice.
So, here’s the plan. I will write a post each week about a topic. The goal is to write at least a one page essay (double-spaced, 12 point, Times New Roman font, normal margins). It will be difficult, particularly with a 40+ hours/week job and the numerous other obligations I have. But I need to stop making excuses and just do it. To my friends reading my posts, please try to hold me to this plan. If I start to stray from my plan, annoy me until I get back on track.
Other than that weekly post, I’ll post random things that catch my attention. Maybe they’ll even turn into my weekly essay.
