I don’t publish very frequently and it’s because I feel like this site represents my public image and the things I put here should be somewhat polished since it’s “how the world will see me.” If I write something here I tend to keep a draft for months. Write it and rewrite it again and save it to reread later and decide it’s not good enough to publish.

But in truth, I’m not always polished. I don’t always have popular opinions. I don’t always have the right words to say. Which means I’m not really representing myself but a filtered version of me. And maybe what I should put out there should be a little more stream of conscious. More raw and more authentic. And more me.
