A short introduction for the newbies (and some of you oldies) — I am a 20-something black woman from urban New England in the Northeastern region of the United States, currently live in the Southeast. I work in the biological sciences, hoping to make life better for others. This blog will be an adventure through my interests, musings, and research. I’ll be adding a new post several times a week when not away or on vacation. You can stay updated on new posts by subscribing to the blog via email or RSS with the forms located on the righthand sidebar.
So, what sort of topics will I be discussing on this blog? Whatever comes to mind, of course, but expect these topics relatively often:
Why? Music is my life. I am not a music snob, and I tend to despise those who are, but I am a huge consumer of music of all kinds. Music allows me to understand and develop my feelings and thoughts. I will be writing posts on my favorite artists, their music, and their lives.
I’m interested in relationships of all types; I’m interested in understanding people and how to relate to them, and this blog will be my medium to express the knowledge I’ve gained in these areas.
Why? I’ve been involved in several interracial relationships. Over time, my knowledge of the dynamics of interracial relationships has grown. So expect posts on this matter relatively frequently. Of course, with this topic comes the issue of race.
Why? I’m interested in social dynamics and the role that race as a cultural construct plays in it. In particular, I’m interested in the intersection of race and gender as it pertains to black women.
*In light of some recent events, I’ve decided I’ll be posting less about race in general, as compared to the other listed topics.*
Why? Black women and their experiences in the United States, and worldwide, is a topic I’ve been interested in for a long time. I will use this blog to share and develop my thoughts on this topic.
(Don’t worry, I’ll also be writing about other groups of people.)
Who? Celebrities, my family, my closest friends, the guy who lives down the road and sits on his porch all day. I will be writing about and discussing all sorts of people. Especially me.
Why? My blog, my thoughts!
