Well, I normally don't. That is, I don't normally write for other people or at least not since I was in school. In a couple days I'll be leaving my home in the midwest for Peace Corps service in Tanzania, and I felt that this would be a great way to keep up with a lot of people easily. I'll admit right now that I probably won't be a daily blogger; partly because I may not have easy access to a computer in Africa and partly because I procrastinate. However, what I'll lack in quantity, hopefully I'll make up for in quality. I'll try to make the posts at least halfway interesting and mildly amusing if at all possible. Also, I'll probably try out several greetings and farewells over the next few weeks. Having said that, I'll sign off with, "TTFN."
