Another Vlog!

Snapshot 2 (3-28-2014 9-33 PM)

For most of you this will be great news — I felt the need to do another vlog! I know a couple of you voted that you’d rather hang yourself from the refrigerator door handle than see me talk again so please, look away! But the overwhelming majority asked me to pretty please film myself rambling to a camera more...


Here’s What I’m Going to Do After Graduation…

By the time I'm done with my Masters degree, my... - The Feminist Breeder 2014-03-21 14-49-44

For the past few years, I’ve really tried to avoid thinking about a life post-graduation. I just had no idea what it could look like. That might sound insane since I’m paying all of this money for a graduate degree. I mean, surely I had plans for how to use it, right? Wrong. I just knew I wanted a Masters...

How Do I Read This Out Loud?

Review in the January issue of Parenting Magazine (© Liz Henry - lizhenry.net)

It’s Hump Day and I need to hear from you. I want to interact with this community instead of listening to myself talk today.

I tend to get down about the fact that I’m nearly 36 years old and still in graduate school. I often slump over and say to my husband, “I haven’t done anything with my life.” To which he responds, “ARE YOU HIGH? You have more stories than most people can fit in a lifetime!” That’s true.
