The Space Between

I feel like I’m really in a good place with regard to my creative component of my thesis.  I am loving the double-sided book idea Alan and I have been tossing around. Here’s what I’m thinking: Side A of my book,“Conversations With My Father,” begins with my death and travels backward to on 9/11.  The […]

Triumphant Return

Hello, and thank you, to everyone who has shown an interest in my research!  I’m back, and I owe you all an apology for falling off the face of the Earth a few months ago.  I had some major health issues last semester that forced me to take a medical leave of absence, which I’ll … Continue reading Triumphant Return

let me tell you a story.

So what had happened was… I walk into my town’s Starbucks, and I set my bag and coat down to reserve myself a table. It was cold that night, so I grabbed myself a chai tea latte so that I wouldn’t be sitting in this establishment without purchasing anything… because that would be awkward. When […]

With this idea, my thesis is in […]

i was thinking and…

  I literally just got done reading “Easier Said than Done: Writing an Autoethnography” by Sarah Walls. It was an interesting read for sure, but it brought me back to my worries about what I am pursuing for this thesis. I couldn’t help but think back to a conversation that I had with my boss […]

up to something.

So, it has been a while since I have come on here and have said hello to you all… hello. There it is. I have not been posting as consistently as I probably should, but I am going to say very confidently that in some ways I regret that, and in others I am happy […]
