Why start this journal?

1) Reflection

Writing these essays will force me to organize my thoughts. 

2) Feedback

I hope people respond with their own ideas and opinions.

3) Improvement

I want to become a better writer, and this seems like a good way to practice.

In terms of style, I want to keep things simple and straightforward. I'd like to ask questions more than offer answers. I don't know much about most things, but I'm curious about everything.
