Discussing feminism in The Crown. [No spoilers]

I really hadn’t intended to post something like this until last night when my husband and I were watching Netflix’s original series The Crown. I really enjoy series like this one, and I’m only three episodes in, but I think the characters are well done, and I’ve heard the budget for the show is astronomical. […]

Mastering Time in the Graduate World

Hey readers, It’s been way too long, and I have no one to blame but myself. Life has been pretty hectic since Christmas. Right after the holidays were over I flew back to Vermont for my residency. It went really well, and I’ve made a lot of progress on my thesis. Which is great, but I […]

Back in Vermont!

I’m back in Vermont for my second residency as a graduate student. It’s a lot colder than last time, but I feel a lot better about coming because I know that to expect. Last time I was just a bundle of nerves the whole time, but now I feel like I can actually focus. Once […]

It’s been a while…anyone still there?

Yep. I’m pretty sure I haven’t posted in a few weeks. I just haven’t had anything interesting to post about. Really, it would have been an account of me sitting in front of my computer twiddling my thumbs (yes, I do that). I had started my new job, which I really liked, but I was […]

It’s a Gilmore Girls and ice cream kind of a day

It’s rainy today in Seattle (go figure), and everyone seems to be coming down with a cold (myself included), and since I am absolutely worthless when I’m sick I’m having a binge movie day. School work is also kicking my butt, so I may be avoiding that as well, but at this point I don’t […]

Stop the Comcast takeover.

Hey guys, So I don’t usually get involved with things like this, but I think that the internet should be equal for everyone. If you think so, then check out this site. They are doing some really good work to try and keep net neutrality a thing. Don’t let Comcast take over half of America’s […]

My 20’s aren’t what I thought they would be

I’m sure everyone come to this realization some point in their life that real life and media are not consistent on how to represent the average 20-something-year-old. I’m fine with that. I’ve always known that, but in the past few days I’ve felt this itching under my skin. I’m not unhappy with my life, but […]

Waiting to hear back from my advisor!

So,  I sent in my first packet of work for my teacher to review. I’m super nervous because I don’t think it is the best work I could have provided, but I wasn’t sure how to change it to make it better, so I just sent it in the way it was. I wouldn’t say […]

Sorry this is late…my computer broke.

So I’ve been doing all of my school work on lined paper for the past few days because the processor went out on my laptop. It was an older computer, so I don’t feel too bad, but I hate buying new things. Luckily, Google made Chromebooks that are cheap, and exactly what I need: something […]

I know I should be grateful

So, here’s the thing, if you don’t want to listen to a rant that’s pretty much what this post is. You have been warned. I know I should be forever thankful that I have a job. It’s been ingrained in me by countless family members that even if you hate the job at least you […]
