I’m a current graduate student in English literature originally from Los Angeles and living in Michigan. I first started this blog after graduating from college and missing being an English major. As I was reading the complete works of Proust, I decided to try to look at the world as Proust might, both as a writing project and a way to try to observe the world around me.
Instead, this quickly became a blog where I could jot down various observations about what I was doing, the books I was reading, the food I was eating, etc. As an avid traveler, it was also a place to describe my various trips (and not bore my friends through mass emails) and just what struck me as I walked down the sidewalk.
Now that I’m back in school, I have once again found people to talk to about things like Proust, but still enjoy writing about the mundane observations I have about everything.
