This is a blog I have started largely because I process things through writing and also because I’m trying to develop myself as a writer. It’s literally just random thoughts, but if I know myself it will probably mostly be about politics and television.
I’m a college senior, studying History and English Literature in rural Illinois. I’m hoping to become an educator in the next couple of years. I’m still trying to figure out how much of myself to disclose in this space. On the one hand, I’m terrible at anonymity and witholding anything is deeply unnatural for me. On the other hand, having a scant digital presence can be valuable for an educator and I sometimes think I’m overly invested in forms of identity as a lens for experience. That probably sounds both vague and pretentious but I’m not sure how else to phrase it, so sorry.
If you’re reading this, there is a 95% chance that you know who I am and are laughing at me. If so, hi and I love you. If not, I’m sure you are also an incredible and valuable human being. There’s a good chance that I’ll give up being awkwardly cryptic in the next week or so, so you are welcome to hang out if you’re curious for whatever reason. Not that you would know who I am, I’m not famous. Obviously.
