Back in May, I emailed Todd over at the Media Center about setting up an “Abroad Blog” for my year in Brasil. This first post, titled “Hello world!” seems cruelly enthusiastic. I left it unedited until today, which is my third day in Brasil. I still do not know what form this blog will take. I definitely should have planned it better. But I did not! WordPress, which sort of manages all the Dickinson blogs (I don’t know how that hosting works, so if anyone cares to explain it to me in the comments, I will likely be eternally grateful), recommends I make some goals about what my blog will do. I’m going to go do that now. Surely there is nothing here to distract me.
