Hello world of bloggers!
I am your typical, run-of-the-mill college graduate from a generic liberal arts college in New York (state, not city -I think that’s an important tidbit), looking to share my voice, because hey – don’t all millennials think their thoughts and activities important enough to post continuously to inform the world of where they are, what they’re doing, and with whom they are doing it?
If I sound bitter, it’s because I’m fed up. I’m tired of how our society and my generation interacts. I’m tired of having to try to conform to the norms of a social atmosphere that I no longer feel a yearning to fit in with. I don’t pretend to be above all the social media apps and sites, I still use them for fear of completing falling behind with the friends and contacts I have that I don’t have the privilege to see everyday, but little by little the time I spend on these platforms is dwindling, and my priorities are becoming clearer and clearer.
I majored in French Language and Literature with a double minor in Political Science and Global Studies (the very legitimate and very self-centered study we Americans dub as “global”, but ask anyone from another country and they’ll tell you Global Studies doesn’t really exist, at least not how we see it). I love to travel and spent two of my eight grueling semesters of college abroad, first in Paris and then later in Rabat, Morocco. I have absolutely no idea where this life is taking me, but part of my plan for this blog is to try and find out.
Come with me on this journey and watch as I try to piece things together. I don’t expect to get everything right, but I’m sick and tired of sitting around and waiting for something to happen, so I figured I might as well give it my all and see if I can maybe get something right. Honesty, I’ll be happy with just one thing.
I hope what I have to say interests you – if not, go find another blog to read. God knows there’s millions out there in the internet abyss.
This is for me.
