deja vu (blog pageviews)

... i went to two high schools when i was a kid ... basically two years at the first, and two years at the second ...

... the first school was brand new ... nearly all white ... and yuppie, for a public school ...

... the second school was old ... half black ... strong in football and advanced classes ...

... i went from being an A student to being a C student over night ...

... crushed my ego ...

... quick to react, i learned of my class rank ... learned of my immediate peers ... picked a target ... and promised myself that i would always do better than that kid ...

... and it worked.
----------------------------
the parallel story, to the one above, is the pageviews for this blog ... (adventures of a greenhorn) ... first goal is [X] pageviews per month ... it might seem like a lot ... but i know somebody else who gets that many pageviews ... and i know i can do better than that guy ...

(they even look alike).
