Well, what to write in the first post of a new blog? Something witty or interesting would be nice, but I think I’ll stick with a general introduction of myself. I’m in my late 20s, married, schooled in operations research (but regretfully am not using it in my job), avid reader, competitive pistoleer, and generic low-level geek. I’m mostly doing this as a way to keep family and friends updated on the goings-on in my life since I move regularly, am poor with email correspondence, and have a hard time finding time to pick up the phone to call. Plus, there are some big events (will blog about later) on the horizon that will be fun to share with whatever small community of readers I manage to gather. For now, that’s me in a nutshell and why this blog exists.
