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

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 […]

i am orange.

Orange is a color of fascination, enthusiasm and passion; today, I am orange. Everything that drives this thesis is fascination and passion. I couldn’t be more excited that I get to work on something that means so much to me. I am hoping that this post will not be long at all. In brief, and […]

Reflection and a Transmedia Storytelling Question

  Last week’s teleconference/webinar/e-interview/I’m-not-sure-what-to-call-it with Kim Jaxon and Henry Jenkins went very well. I got nervous and began to ramble when I was asked to talk about my research, but my ideas were met with interest and positivity, and that’s a huge encouragement. I still don’t feel like I’m “part of the club,” but I … Continue reading Reflection and a Transmedia Storytelling Question

Stressing and Pressing… are we there yet?

So, with everything going on in my life right now, I can’t say I feel like I have made much progress since my last blog post. I feel like I am literally taking life on a day-to-day basis. Whatever is in my sight in the moment gets my attention, and whatever is outside of my […]

Thinking things through…

I feel like I’m at a good place with regard to my thesis development.  There’s just the right amount of tension/stress/anxiety and a load of excitement/enthusiasm/energy.  There are still, however, a bunch of questions.   I struggle with trying to define the genre of my piece.  Should I call it historical autofiction? Faction? Fictionalized memoir? […]

Grab Bag(bean?)

Hello, readers. I know I said I was going to talk about the economic features of CS (this is the abbreviation I’ll be using from here on out for “closed species”) communities in my next blog post, but I’m sorry to say that’s not going to happen today. I feel like I still need to … Continue reading Grab Bag(bean?)

This Thesis, Mah Thesis

This is the post excerpt.

It Begins

Hello colleagues, professors, scholars, and other readers. I am a student currently enrolled in Kean University’s Master of Arts in English and Writing Studies program.  This blog is the place where I’ll be documenting my MA thesis journey, which I anticipate to be equal parts grueling and invigorating, like hot yoga or some kind of … Continue reading It Begins
