I am turning 30 in a few months. That hits hard. Might as well be the half-time of my life.

And though I have been generally inconsistent about my perspective on public blogs given how mundane online journal contents are in general these days, I decided to make a new one – my 7th, I suppose, if you count the days of the good old Geocities. This time I will not pretend it’s for work only. This time I will be more generous on worthy personal milestones. This time I will tell more stories.

This time I will treat this blog as a means to communicate to my 60-year-old future self, so she may judge if my next 30 years or so is worth living.
