I guess a more practical reason for creating this blog is that I'm currently enrolled in a writing class at Liberty University, and I figured having a blog might get the creative juices moving again. Plus I think my wife, at least, would like to read the things I post. Even more so, if I plan on having any kind of future in the academic world, writing is a BIG must. What better way of sharpening your writing skills than with a blog, so I will be posting my writing assignments as well. Oh, maybe I should explain why I picked that title in the first place... boy that would be really lame.. picking the title not because I'm interested in science, but just for the sake of a catchy title. I'm sure I'd get all sorts of nasty comments if any readers I could hope to get were science enthusiasts like myself. So the reason for the title is that when I was a small boy, and as early as I could watch the Discovery Channel and understand what the shows were talking about, I wanted to be a scientist, so that would have been at the age of 8 .. I think. That passion has come, gone and come back again, and now at the age of 29, I realized this is my life's calling. One of the requirements of being a good scientist (believe it or not) is also being a good writer. I can't think of any scientists that managed to get a PhD without being able to write. If you hate writing, but want to be a scientist, sorry, you should either pick a different field or learn to love writing. You may be asking yourself, "What kind of scientist does he want to be; doesn't this guy know there are all sorts of different fields of study in science.... for Pete Sake?" Well if you really must know, I'm undecided, but I'm leaning towards Computer Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Neurology, Genetics, or Psychology.... maybe it would be safer to just say, "I don't know"
So anyway,... here here...to the final christening, and wish her (the blog) a safe voyage...or even better in French .. Bonne Voyage
Well I suppose that's enough for now. I'm going to be sure and make my wife happy... again(happy that first of all, I'm starting a blog and happy again that I'm reading her's), and read her blog after I post this. To my wife, Tegan: Honey, I hope you'll read this. Love you. *kiss*
