From the desk of the Procrastinating Perfectionist

For years I have been accumulating heaps of notes and thoughts about everything ranging from my work and research topics, opinions on various issues, short prose, and even some ad campaigns and slogans for businesses that should never see the light of day (on that note, if anyone ever wants to open a strip club close to MIT campus, I got a full branding packet for "M.I.Tits". Call me.) These notes are in various forms of existence - from one-line idea sketches to fully baked essays, and for a long time I've been thinking of letting them loose somewhere. 

However, there had always been a long chain of prerequisites that I tied myself up with. I can't open a blog before I have the perfect theme for it. And I need to research what's the best blogging platform, and I probably want to set it up myself on my own server so I have the most flexibility with it, and I need to update my homepage first (its currently about 3 years out of date, and the new homepage I've been working on is far from complete and already more than one year out of date...), and I need to buy a domain name, and so on. Setting up my online presence has always been something I do in my spare time. If you actually know me in person you would probably ask - "what spare time?", to which I answer - Exactly.

I've decided enough is enough. Time to focus on what actually matters, and the rest will follow. 
So here goes. In this blog I will try to put up some new reflections as well as some older content that hasn't yet seen the light of day, and I'll generally try to use this blog as a place for arranging my different thoughts and ideas.

This is me.
This is my blog.

Now lets see how long I can keep this up.
