Review 665

The first thing I noticed about this weblog is its stark appearance. I assume he was going for the less is more look, but in this case I think less really is less.

Aside from that, I really enjoyed Nik’s writing style. He draws you in and makes you want to read more to get to know him. He doesn’t shy away from writing about extremely personal things. For example, he writes about a girl he did hook up with but shouldn’t have, and a girl he wants to start a relationship with but can’t. There’s also a lot of stream of consciousness writing, which really works at getting the reader into his head.

I like the way his “pointless submenu” is set up. Included in this are Nik’s about me/about this site page; list of archive titles, which include “being cute versus being hot;” “things I wish I would have said;” “believing in love;” and “eating at subway;” and a section on what graphics program and fonts he uses and why.

Nik says he’ll be updating only semi-periodically, and hasn’t posted since Oct. 31, but I think his wit, insight and observations of a 20-year-old college student make his posts worth the wait.
