The Stars Must be Aligned

I've been itching to get this blog up. Ever since I read Don de la Maza's blog and his extraordinary quest, I've been wanting to do the same. Back in 2004, when I started my first blog, I intended to start a chess blog. But school got in the way. You can read all about that here.

This blog will have a beginning, a middle with many posts and an end. One day, this blog will end. It will stand as a solitary quest.

Today, on the sixth day of the sixth month in the sixth year of two-thousand, I introduce my quest. In sixty-six days, the quest will begin.

Thirty-three days from now, on July 9, 2006 I'll post my plan to complete the Circles.

Then on August 11, 2006 I'll begin the Circles.

May God have mercy on my soul.

Huzzah! Welcome to the 7 circles of hell! How appropriate to begin on such a numerical coincident of 6/6/06. I made it through as well.. and know you can... as I, too finished a graduate degree in the midst of my quest.

Thanks for the encouragement!

I won't actually start the Circles until August 11. I finally decided to put up the dedicated blog and decided that 6/6/06 would be appropriate! I will start in 66 days from 6/6!
