The Obligatory Introductory Post

As the title suggests, here is the obligatory introductory post. This post is for all of those readers who want to know:

  • Who am I?
  • Why am I writing?
  • & why should you read me?

And for those who don’t want to know any of this information, feel free to skip over it.

Okay. Here goes:

I am a twenty-something*-year-old new mother suffering a “being-in-your-twenties-sucks!” life crisis. I used to think it was just me who wasn’t enjoying herself appropriately during this decade, but have since learnt from many people who seem fairly well-adjusted that feeling like shit at this time in my life is normal, so now I feel validated and somewhat relieved in these feelings and looking forward to turning 30, despite the fact that I will then be halfway to 60**.

As a new mom who has finally figured out a career path by which I can make a living (I am going back to school for accounting), I do not have as much time as I would like for reading, will most likely not blog very often, and think and talk about poop entirely too often.

Having written the above disclaimer, I will try to post on here at least one more time this year***, and while I reserve the right to write about any topic my heart desires, I have a feeling I will mainly be reviewing the media I have had a chance to read/watch/absorb/etc. (From this feeling arose the title of this blog.)

As to why you should read me – well, I can’t guarantee that you should. I hope to write blog posts that are somewhat interesting, that will help you decide whether or not you are interested in reading a forthcoming novel, or make you laugh, or simply cause you to say: “Yes! That is a well written blog post.” If my writing does not make you feel this way, however, then feel free to give it a pass. There is too much interesting material out in the world to waste your time on something that is not compelling.

Of course, I hope that you will consider this blog worth your time, and furthermore, I hopeĀ  that you leave many, many comments. (I like comments). Perhaps you would like to leave one now, regarding your opinion of this introductory post****.

*You know that saying about not asking a woman her age? It applies here.

**Not that there’s anything wrong with this age, of course.
