Hello world!

As the title suggests, this is the first entry in a blog I hope will generate readers. Why else would I publish it on the web?

General outline of topics – everything and anything I can think up. Yes, I know. Vague. Understated. Possibly arrogant to assume anyone would wish to read my dribble. Yet, curiously I hope to produce a product viewers won’t be tempted to throw in the garbage.

Never the less, if you have a comment. Say it. Discuss it. If you agree with me – say so and why. If you disagree with me, even better, – say so and why.

Why should you even bother to read my work? Well, I am not a being with higher intelligence than any other person. I am simply a student at St. Bonaventure University. I study journalism and mass communication with a minor in political science. I write because nothing brings me more joy and frustration than the written word. It is the balm to my soul. While at the same time makes me want to crack my head against a desk in frustration. I am naturally curious and a hard worker. These two traits resulted in a semester spent abroad. I am currently studying at the National University of Ireland, Galway, and I love almost every minute of it.

I hope something I have said will capture your interest, and I look forward to hearing from all of you out there in the world-wide web.
