Anyone out there seen 1998?

Considering how much media content I take in from external sources daily, I decided to start a new blog a few weeks ago. I never thought it would be such a pain to get going. It's been at least 5 years since I've written anything more than the most basic of code, but this would have taken me 3 hours when I was 16. It took two weeks, and I'm not even working off an original design. At least I can work off of this now.

While the spirit of this blog is to write about things that I've learned, here's a list of things that I used to know and at which I'm now more or less a complete incompetent:

Rollerblading. I played inline hockey for six years, then I grew six inches and can now barely stand on skates. If I went to a rink, I'd probably look like Clyde Drexler in Pros vs. Joes.

Drinking 48 ounces of a cold beverage in less than 3 minutes. Actually, I don't think I could ever do this.

Watching the Knicks. Also "Rooting for the Knicks."

about me

I'm Blake. I like to learn stuff.

I like to learn about history, art, culture, sports, and politics. I like learning about what happens when you mix Diet Coke and Mentos. I like learning about Britney's latest flameup, Beckham's newest haircut, and how to make little origami gift boxes out a piece of 8.5x11.

I started this blog for me to have a place to write about the things that I've learned. I hope that you enjoy reading.
