I’ve had this blog since the summer of 2009. In the summer of 2009, I was an almost-junior in college living in Austin, Texas. I was a journalism major dreaming of working at some New York women’s magazine, writing for The Daily Texan, listening to The Doors and Lady Gaga, and dating a guy I thought I’d end up spending the rest of my life with.
When I first started this blog, I was knee-deep in commentary about music, what-ifs, and that-fucking-celebrity-over-there. My biggest worry was finishing up interviews for a end-of-term story, studying for spanish finals, and deciding what end-of-year party I’d hit up first.
As understated as this may sound, things have changed after 7 years.
I’m a person that’s finally settling into her own skin and feeling comfortable doing so (at the moment, anyway). I’m a woman who loves food, feminism, cats, and the brilliance of incredible writing on any medium. I’m trying to move forward from past fuck-ups and into resolve. I want to start writing about what I value most:
- Women’s rights, women’s education, and the amplification of women’s voices.
- Excellent writing.
- Compelling books.
- Amazing events in Los Angeles that I’m lucky enough to attend (I do live here after all).
- Cats, cats, and more cats.
- TV shows and movies that are pure entertainment, no matter the brow level.
What I’ve listed above is a transparent list of what I should be writing about, and what I’ll start writing about.
Oh mel, gee . . . is still my stomping ground for my own thoughts. I’m just rearranging the furniture.
