So this is how I make a blog entry.

Fascinating. I don't know whether I'll appreciate this idea venue or not, but since I might, I thought I may as well set it up. By way of introduction to the blog, the following is a non-exhaustive list of topics one might reasonably expect me to write about sometimes, if I decide to use this blog:
  • Epistemology
  • Harry Potter
  • What it is like to be a graduate student
  • Gilbert & Sullivan comic operas
  • Civil liberties
  • The San Francisco 49ers
  • Utilitarianism
  • The American political structure
  • Jokes which I find funny
  • Monopoly
  • Criticism of dumb things in print
  • Buffy: the Vampire Slayer
  • The unfortunate decline of the Disney cartoon musical
  • Having shorter hair than I'm used to having
  • Coffee
  • Other things
Ok, so the list will probably turn out to be exhaustive after all. A word of warning for those who don't know my non-academic writing style: long, awkward, and difficult sentences amuse me, and I rarely go out of my way to avoid them. Furthermore, I expect to tend to write posts in order, starting at the beginning, and continuing to the end. I therefore may occasionally not really address the topic I'd set out to address at the post's beginning, and will almost definitely occasionally engage myself, with a surprising amount of thoroughness, in tangential ideas.
