Attempting this sober and nicotine free might have been a bit too ambitious.
I've been staring at this screen for a while now, wondering where and how to start this blog.
I have a tendency to overthink things, often resulting in a lack of action.
A disposition I wish to challenge.
Thus, let my first blogpost be about me not knowing what my first blog post should be about, which is sort of what this blog is all about...
Being a 90's kid, it's incredible to think how quickly things have changed.
In the blink of an eye, we went from running around, playing tag with our neighbourhood friends, to chopping up shamblers, blowing up cyberdemons, and cluttering the family's Compaq Presario 4704's with porn and mp3's, courtesy of KaZaA.
Back then the internet had already transcended from a New World phenomena into a Wild West frontier, with its early settlers unknowingly laying the groundwork for what would eventually become humanity's first global democratic medium. Yet often resembling nothing more than a narcissistic catwalk for our (alter-)egos.
Now we all have our own little piece of cyberspace, from where to cloak our insecurities and project our desires personified.
And yet... here I am. blogging.
Definitively no Tolstoy, but obviously a high-functioning hypocrite.
I'm not sure what brought me to this point;
Maybe it is the current state of global socio-economic discomfort.
Maybe it is the idea of leaving something behind in a desperate attempt to defy mortality.
Maybe it is that most annoying urge to heedlessly broadcast unsolicited reflections and opinions.
Or maybe it's simply therapeutic.
