Starting this out

Obviously, this is my first post here. I would like to just test the water - to see whether blogging is really for me.

I pride myself on not being a whiner, but feel like that a lot of people use whining, or co-ruminating, as a way of bonding/socializing with others. I can't really do this for many reasons, some of which are:

  1. I usually find ways to solve or handle issues before I need to bring them to others.
  2. If the topic or subject of my complaint is not familiar to those I'm complaining to, I might be misrepresenting the subject while they have no way of referencing the 'facts.' It'd be unfair to the subject and those who are listening to me.
  3. I want to minimize the amount of drama in life. By becoming a whiner, I might end up attracting other whiners and I know I don't have much tolerance for whining.

The reason why I wanted to write, however, is I do question something in my life, whether it is friends, colleagues, someone in my neighborhood, politicians, fictional characters, etc. Feelings and ideas come over me and I need outlets at times.

This blog is not intended, at least as of now, to be anything academic or technical, but I do hope that my posts ignite ideas, thoughts, interests, curiosity in its readers.
