This is a very unassuming beginning to what I hope will be a pretty substantial blog. I hope to use Matt's Myth to chronicle my travels in China, including my tenure as a professor of English Literature at Zhanjiang Normal University.
It's 11:02 pm, the night before I leave. At 7:50am, I'll fly out of Philly International, stop for a 12-hour layover at LAX, and then fly to Hong Kong. When I step off the plane at the end of this 23-hour flight, my life will have changed.
It's going to be one hell of a year.
