Tashiro-jima (or Tashirojima), 田代島, is a small island in Japan. It has become known as “Cat Island” due to the large stray cat population that thrives as a result of the local belief that feeding cats will bring wealth and good fortune. The cat population is now larger than the human population on the island.
I want to go there…
The internet is truly a gift. The endless access to food type media is so blissful.
As someone who is (in theory) going to specialize in computer-type things, I am amazed at the amount of constant connectedness and varying amounts of anonymousness the internet gives us. We can create completely false identities via forums and avatars; or we can share way too much on networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. But I think that my favorite part is the ability to Google a dish that I’ve been obsessed with and find plentiful results with reviews on where to get the best versions or tips on how to perfect it at home.
Lots of planning.
That’s what’s happening right now… Old man has begun to ask what my post-Bucknell plans are,which, I may note, he did not ask my brothers until much farther along in their college careers…come to think of it, I don’t think he asked Joe until after he had already graduated (which is how we originally found out Joe was going to China for a year). Seeing that the men in my family kind of fail in the communication department, I guess I got the talk early. Or maybe because I am on track to graduate early and have expressed multiple times that I don’t have the strongest attachment to Bucknell…
Well, here it is. Not my blogging debut, but a sort of rebirth.
After unsuccessfully trying to document my life though a series of short-lived journals or sporadic-written blogs, I am yet trying again through tumblr. In no way am I saying that my thoughts are particularly amazing, but might as well put them out there and see what happens.
So, new year, new blog.
