Plans change, new commitments

So, it’s the day after Christmas, and so many things have happened in the past month.  After an entire summer of emptiness, I had the opportunity to go to Europe and interview at Oxford.  Even if I don’t get in, this is the changing point, the start of something new.  It’s time to get moving.  It’s time to start focusing and do everything that I said I was going to do in the past, but never took the time to do.  That is, I’m going to break free from this feeling of being stuck in a “waiting period” that I think I’m creating myself.

Part one is this blog.  I plan to start writing about everything, from news to technology to Christianity.  Anything that I find interesting every day (that’s right, every day), I’m going to post here, with links.  Secondly, since I do love photography but have been so lazy recently in going out and actually taking photos, I’m going to try one of those 365 photo streams on flickr.  Basically, that would require posting a picture every day.  Maybe then, I’ll improve some and perhaps justify getting a D-SLR.

More plans in the days ahead.  I am also still trying to figure out a better title for the blog.  Anything’s better than “Robbie’s Blog.”  Might even comment later tonight on Sherlock Holmes (the movie), since I’ve heard so much about it.  The critics love it, the SH fans hate it.
