Welcome to my blog: Sharing the Insanity.
Let’s start with a little about me:
I’m 39, a physician (by training). I currently work for the federal government doing health policy work here in Washington, DC. For a variety of reasons, which I’m sure we’ll cover over time, I’m going to be starting law school at American University in a few weeks. I’ll be going part-time on top of working full-time. I’ve been that I must be crazy.
Maybe I’m am insane for trying to do both. But, I figured I might as well share the insanity, instead of keeping it to myself.
So why a blog?
I’m going to be very busy. The first year, I will have classes three nights a week from 6 pm until 8 pm, and one night from 6 pm until 10 pm. I hope to maintain a little bit of a social life with my local friends, on top of the few hundred pages of reading each week. That’s going to make it VERY hard to stay in touch with everyone. I figured a blog would help.
A blog will also help me document the experience, so that in a few years — when I have time to sit down and think for a moment — I can look back and try to figure out what the hell happened. Was this a good experience? Or the stupidest idea ever? (I guess we’ll see.)
Also, I think that a lot of really crazy, random things happen in my life (and probably in yours) and sometimes you just want to share them with someone. So, you get to be that someone.
What should you do?
You should read my blog. All the time! Let’s face it. You’re not going to be able to go to sleep at night wondering what insightful items I’ve posted. So, you can sign up to get posts as they come.
You should also comment. I want this to be interactive. I want to hear your thoughts: both random thoughts, and comments directly related to my posts. Anything offensive or inappropriate (kids can read this, too!) will be removed. I’ll try not to remove stuff just because I disagree with your opinion.
