No doubt I take myself too seriously.  This blog is probably testament to that fact.  I hate the slug for this blog.  Right now, it says “A showcase of writing”, but doesn’t that imply that the writing is worthy of showcasing?  My writing isn’t worthy of being on paper; I think the ephemeral medium of digital bits is a far better fit.

I’m all to aware that I take myself too seriously in real life too.  In talking with friends, family (especially), or others I never fail to talk about myself.  I’ve definitely made progress in curbing it, but I have a long way to go still.

So let this post serve as a reminder to myself that I need to lighten up, be cognizant of that there is a lot I don’t know, and in the (paraphrased) words of Steven D. Levitt, strive to be a “little thinker in a world of big thinkers”.
