I went to bed last night, Election Night, wanting to do something more productive with my brain. It was 1:30 am and I was endlessly scrolling between Twitter, 538, and the New York Times. Biking. I’m going to figure out biking. So this is where I will track those efforts. What I know so far … Continue reading Something new
I had fun in college and I did well, at least if you go by grades. But I’m not sure what I really did. I’ve been thinking about this as colleges try to go back to school. It seems college students will have A LOT more time on their hands. From Politico: A friend of … Continue reading So much time

This is an online journal, of sorts. I am going to keep ideas here, develop thoughts. So if someone wants to follow that messy journey, they can.
