2 Years Later ! 2 Years Later !


My name is Nathan Murray, and I would like to welcome you to version 2.0 of “Nate’s Life” ! It has been a long time coming, but I am happy to announce that it has arrived. Check back often to see what I have been up to …’s history:

I started nateslife back in 2001 as a way to chronicle my daily activities, events, travels, etc… Way before myspace, way before facebook, way before, way before flickr had ever been conceived, I was blogging ! After a couple of active years making posts on the site, I lost interest.

Now, nearly a decade later I am unveiling my new design. Functionality is pretty much the same, just updated with current software, styles, and scripts to make things nice and clean. I am planning on using this site to, once again, chronicle events & travels. The relaunch happens to coincide with a dream of mine that is about to be fulfilled: A trip to Japan !
