Keep Sharp. Ruining a Dull Mind.
I have been out of school for a few months now. Graduated from University, completed the internship, was hired by the internship, and am yet running out of money. Oh the life of a new graduate. At least I have a job, right? I spent my first month watching Criminal Minds and various other shows on TV. A great way to spend your time, don’t you agree? Which brings me to why I am here.
I actually have time to blog now that school is out! Not that I particularly want to blog, but I need to read and write to keep my mind sharp, especially if I am planning on going to graduate school. Which I am. And of what great purpose is writing if no one is going to read it (unless it is introspective/reflective writing)? I prefer to share the thing I learn and the stories I am allowed to share from my work (HIPAA hates fun).
For now, that is all I needed to say. I will hopefully be writing about many topics that will titillate your brain: the book club my buddies and I formed (currently reading Origins of Virtue by Matt Ridley), biking, bike mechanics, food and cooking, working with the mentally ill, clinical psychology, the various psychological topics I find interesting, and the random fun and/or sciency thing that tickles my fancy. Finally, I have recently discovered (or at least cared about) my profound lack of historical (and political) knowledge for anything outside of the fertile crescent post 1 A.D. I would like to render that and hopefully others can correct and inform me as well via this forum.
