So, this is my first blog post. Where I explain what my blog will be about and my motivation for writing a blog. Here goes. I’m 24, living outside of my home state of Maryland for the very first time, and recently fulfilled my lifelong dream of getting a dog.
I’ve also just begun a Ph.D. program in English and Education at the University of Michigan (the reason for my move), and have no idea what is happening to my life! I mostly Read Write Eat Sleep Read Write, repeat as needed. All this reading and writing is interspersed with sprinklings of 30Rock, Friends, some newly discovered BBC shows, lots of Starbucks and Facebook, and less and less frequent visits to the local CrossFit gym. These are the things that will fill my blog posts!
For anyone out there who hasn’t discovered the post-feminist perfection that is 30Rock, let me clarify the title of this post and of my blog. Lizbeanism is Liz Lemon’s new life philosophy that means “I am a dyke, against the rising waters of mediocrity.” For me this philosophy means that I hope to live my mid-twenties life by Liz Lemon’s example; so there will be lots of mediocrity. But hopefully endearing comedic mediocrity. Hopefully.
