I’ve spent the better part of the last hour trying to write something that would suffice as a nice, elegant introduction post. Something that would speak to you conveying a sense of elegance – class, if you will (see what I did there?) – and to show that I have the capacity in engage you in intellectual conversation that would stimulate and inspire you.
Yeah, that didn’t exactly work.
Hi, I’m Joan. I’m the new blogger around these parts, and it’s great to meet you. You can learn a bit more about me (if you’d like) by clicking on the Meet the Bloggers link at the top of the page.
To give you a brief sum of who/what I am: I’m a Resident Assistant down at College Village, as well as being a full-time student. This tends to leave me with very little free time during the school year proper, but when I can get the opportunity to escape the madness (such as it is), I enjoy writing, sketching, driving my roommates crazy with my odd taste in music, and DJing up at WGCC.
(Oh, did someone want an obligatory plug for WGCC, 90.7 The Music FM?
You know, summer orientations and classes aside, there isn’t very much going on around here that I can highlight for you. As such, I’d like to take a moment to share what exactly I’m bringing to the table here.
In short, I want to be able to start some discussion about a variety of things that I hope you’ll find interesting. I’m working on a few posts ranging from discussing virtual worlds (such as Second Life) and their impact on society, to ‘how-to college’ with some helpful tips on college success.
Not everything is terribly serious, however – expect to see a wide variety of silly things as well, from game discussions to musical genre explorations. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I’ll enjoy writing them, and I’m looking forward to seeing your comments, questions, and suggestions.
That’s it for now, I think. Again, it’s great meeting you, and I’m looking forward to sharing my semester with you.
