So, let's pretend that you're a late twenty-something who's just finished grad school and moved from sunny California to sometimes-sunny-but-currently-mostly-rainy DC. Moved for love, not because of an abiding interest in Northern charm and Southern efficiency.*
The next logical move might be to find a job, or perhaps buy furniture for your naked apartment. There's also the matter of two as-yet-unfinished papers for publication that you promised to your former boss before leaving the OC. Some go-getters might even be thinking about pursuing all these task at once.
"Ha!" I say. Ha. Clearly, now is the time to start a blog.
* I've been doing my homework: "Washington is a city of Southern efficiency and Northern charm." -- John F. Kennedy
