The best way to start something, I’ve found, is to plunge right in. Just start.

I’m a person prone to over-analysis and perfectionism. If I don’t plunge right in and do it, I usually don’t do it at all. Everyone else will be doing it, and I’ll be sitting on the sidelines, trying to figure out the perfect way to start.

So I know from experience that I can’t let myself get stuck in analysis paralysis. So I’m starting. With this post.

This is a blog. My blog. I’m a chemistry geek (hence the sn), scientist, soon-to-be PhD candidate in Chemical Engineering, asthmatic, atheist, feminist, and suspected autistic woman. Here, I’ll blog about… well, whatever I feel like blogging about.

Once I get started.

Which I’m doing… now.

    I am the same. I have had my wordpress blog picked out for a few weeks now but not properly started… because I don’t know what the first post should be. So you’ve inspired me to just plunge right in! Thanks 🙂
