Welcome to “An Idiot’s Diary”. My name is Tyler, and I am a self-proclaimed idiot. My voluntary acceptance of this title is not to be self-deprecating. Rather, it is an attempt to acknowledge, and to come to grips with, my genuinely deep lack of understanding about the world in which I live. However, an idiot, like anyone else, is not condemned to lead a static existence. An idiot may, even in the face of his or her own ineptitude, aspire to something more. As for me, I aspire to a better understanding of this world. This blog serves as a window into my idiotic thoughts and documents my experience as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Albania.
