Seven years.

It has been seven years since I started blogging.


On September 25, 2003, I wrote the first ever SIT post back at the old BlogSpot site (which is still alive, incidentally) after spending about a month reading other blogs and deciding to try it for myself.

I didn't expect it to last more than a week. It has now been, as I said, seven years.

Through all of college, including the 2004 election, this blog was a place to vent. After that, I used it to write about my internship adventure, vent even more about the 2008 election, and stay connected to the outside world during my apartment search and my ongoing job search. I've learned a lot, I've made friends I haven't met, I've written more than I ever expected to in my life, and no matter how many times I try to quit, I keep coming back, even though pretty much nobody reads anymore and I don't have the time or energy to go seeking exposure. At this rate, I'll be blogging about my retirement someday.

It's just so odd to be writing this while thinking back on that first post. I had no idea what I was getting myself into...
