First Post: I'll get the hang of this

Hello and welcome,

After mulling over the idea for some time now, I have decided to start a blog.

I am a recent graduate of West Virginia University, where I studied biology and psychology with minors in philosophy and communications. In a little over a month, I will begin graduate school in the Biopsychology Ph.D. program at the University of Michigan. After school, I plan to conduct research, teach, and write about science.

This blog is sort of a test project. Primarily, I will document my experience in graduate school, both for entertainment and illustrative purposes. I will also post about things that interest me in general, such as popular culture, politics, science/technology, and food and travel.

I'm going to use this site as a way to stay abreast of what's going on in the world, and hopefully pass on some useful and interesting information. Most likely, I will tweak things as I learn more about text editing and focus my posts over time. Feel free to comment with suggestions and viewpoints.

Thanks for reading,

Ben

It seems our paths parallel more than they split; I've been inspired to do a similar thing, though mine, I'm sure, will maintain a more personal bent.
