I've started this whole writing thing for a couple of reasons.
1) My burnout from thesis/editing the science section of my student newspaper is finally fading.
2) I just graduated with a biology degree and I've never read Darwin's Origin. Never. I even took a course in evolution. So...it's about time. And if I blog as I go, that's even more incentive to finish it. Sweet.
3) It's summer, and I'm working a 9 to 5 kind of job. What do people do on Monday evenings when there's no homework? It boggles the mind.
