Sooo, tell you a bit about myself….
Since the only common thread for future blog posts will be that they were made by me, it makes some sense to know more about me beyond my name. I’m the son of modern-day immigrants, which is amusing considering I’ve just “immigrated” to New York City (an appropriate description, as the city thus far is like a world unto itself). I’ve had a lot of life experiences for someone my age, and while each independently may not be unique, their collective contribution to my perspective is very much so. I’m also highly educated - in many ways too much so for my own good and in other ways not enough - and, of course, highly opinionated….
Thankfully, I’m also self-conscious with regard to what I say, or write. As such, I am NEVER wrong when it comes to a disagreement on facts, simply because I am determined not to be….and I love that it winds up the stupid and small-minded to no end.
I hope those qualities - accuracy and a diverse opinion - are the ones that come through in this blog, because it will then be an accurate reflection of me - which, if you’ve seen my reflection before, you’d know is quite stunning and definitely worth sharing….
Finally, while I intend to write on anything that warrants it, you’ll probably see entries on a few recurring themes: politics and international affairs (a brilliant time to be a fan of the sport), football (the real one, y’know….where the players actually use their feet predominantly), New York City, and my latest attempts at higher education (today an MBA, tomorrow…?). But everything’s fair game.
