Evey. 24. I’ve been to 46 states- but that doesn’t mean I’ve visited all of these. To rephrase: I’ve been to a gas/rest-station in 46 states; and visited just a portion. I’ve been to a few countries outside the U.S., but that information is hardly relevant considering they were all brief visits. I’ve lived in the North and South parts of VA, that information is relevant. I do not wish to state anything else in my introduction because I don’t think it’s super important. I do, however, wish to share the fact that this is my first $99 domain, and for the sake of this not being another college essay, I will put forth the amount of efforts that I feel will suffice– especially in my own introduction. Arrogant? No, just tired of writing college essays. I never believed an introduction functions much beyond an intro into the real design.
I’m an English Literature Major with absolutely no desire to teach. I like to write and blog; but I don’t refer to myself as a “Writer” with a professional title on any level, at least not yet. However, I’m hopeful in pursuing a career in one (or all!) of the following fields: Technical Writing, Criminal Journalism, and Satirical Journalism. Simply put, I’m just someone who hobbies in writing my stuff– and reading theirs.
I write a variety of personal essays, free-verse poems, and memoirs of the learned subjects in my life. My “work” flies in both directions- humor and melodrama, that can turn into intangible nonsense. I just keep writing, I usually throw the intangible stuff away. In all honesty, the quality of my work is typically laced with uncertainty from my end. The one poem that’s been published of mine [college literary journal, ha.] took me a whole year to submit.
In any case, I hope my decision to casually contribute doesn’t turn me into an unwarranted “writer.” Fortunately, I enjoy reviewing and blogging in reference to other’s work– which flourishes the ability to continue my own! Thanks for reading! -e.b.
