Notes from Peabody Turns Twelve!

Twelve years ago, I thought it would be funny to chronicle my transition to life at UVA and I started blogging with this simple post.

A few have stayed with us. Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat came along and changed how we communicate and digest information, but I think blogging remains an important component of the social space online.
