I first started blogging in 1999. I was a college freshman, studying computer science, totally obsessed with Microserfs and Steven Johnson’s Interface Culture and dotcoms. I bought an HTML guide and hand-coded my little website for hours.
Since then: I switched from comp sci to poli sci, went emo (the first time it came around), switched to Diaryland, ran around New England going to shows and performing sketch comedy and producing plays and generally running amok. Moved to LA, worked as a development assistant, met Wil Wheaton and wrote about it on Blogspot, had some more crazy adventures working with movie stars and discovering improv, switched jobs to reality TV and wrote about it on Movable Type, discovered my coworker was secretly one of my favorite bloggers, met many amazing friends, fell in love, adopted the cutest dog in the world, spent a few years in a complicated union organizing effort, applied to law school. Moved to Philadelphia, loved law school (mostly), spent many weekends on Amtrak and Bolt Bus to New York, tried to use Typepad and gave up, came to love Philly, re-started improv training after a seven-year hiatus.
Now: I missed blogging and decided to give it one more shot. About to graduate law school, study for the bar, and perform onstage for the first time since college. Everything else is wide open.
