A long time ago, in a galaxy far away…

There was a man. A man who felt the need to get writing again. That man is me. I used to love writing. I spent a lot of time thinking that someday I might be a professional writer. That idea somehow morphed to lawyer. Then to computer scientist. Finally we’ve arrived at computer engineer. Even though I’ve long given up on becoming the next great author, I still feel the desire to “put pen to paper.” So that’s what this is about. Just scratching that writing itch.

Why are we here?

A question that has plagued mankind since we could understand speech. Fortunately, I’m going to limit the scope on that question to this blog. Why are we here (at this blog)? Easy, I’m here to talk about whatever I feel like and you’re here to listen and respond. Or not. Whatever.

What are you going to write about?

That’s the easy question. Whatever I feel like. I’ve got some fairly varied interests, so I don’t want to limit the time we have to just one or two topics. Even though it arguably makes for a better blog.

Why does your opinion on anything matter?

It doesn’t. Man, that takes a lot of pressure off of me. Really though, it’s more about a fairly unique perspective.

Who are you anyway?

I’m a dad. Still pretty green at it too. My daughter is two years old. She’s already taught me more than I ever thought I’d learn from a kid. I’m also a full time student. Working towards a degree in computer engineering. In addition to all that, I’m an IT Guy. Working full time to support my family.

Why the Star Wars references?

That’s another perspective thing I guess. I’m a technophile and geek. I have been as long as I can remember, loving things from Star Wars to anime. My first real job paid for all the parts to build my first computer.

So, let’s sum it all up. I’m here to write whether you’re here to read or not. I’m a technophile/geek/dad/student/IT Guy. I wear many hats, we may as well add blogger to my collection. Hopefully this’ll be something fun. I’ve got a few ideas for entries, but mostly we’ll play it by ear.
