I hate first posts. It's like admitting your inexperience and saying, "Look at me! I have no idea what I'm doing."
On the other hand, maybe by admitting you're clueless people will judge you less harshly. Then again, probably not.
And to top it all off, does the concept of writing your life story and publishing it for an anonymous world to read strike anyone else as very strange? And rather egotistic? Not that that's stopping me or anything... :o)
