Why Blog?

The internet quarrels over wether it is Augustine/Calvin that quipped: "I count myself one of the number of those who write as they learn and learn as they write." Whoever said it, I deeply associate with the spirit behind this thought.

For me, writing has always been about learning. I can't imagine to indulge in the study of anything without engaging in writing about the same.

And so, this blog. I never hope for it to be some sort of repository of knowledge or great wisdom. Instead it is a journey into my life as a student. Following this blog will reveal to you my follies and inabilities as a learner.

But I also hope for it to be an intriguing study of my sojourn as a scholar in the wilderness of letters.
