I'm Not That Kind of Blogger

I'm Not That Kind of Blogger

So.. what the hell do I write about then?

1. Blogging. But maybe I'm just stuck in a rut because I can think of 3 - 4 other semi-recent posts where I've blogged about blogging. I do what I do.

2. Culture. But doesn't everybody, really?

3. Soapbox stuff. My new all-inclusive category for the randoms that didn't fit in anywhere. Feminist film rants, racism, sexism, education, gender, socialization.

4. Naturally, my life. But in a reflective kind of way, not a "what am I doing this week" way. Because I'm boring and all I do lately can be summed up like so: look for jobs occasionally, write and think about writing other stuff, read/knit for days, be with the people in my life.

5. Travel. There are some cool photos from my Asian life floating around; however, due to the Blogger-Wordpress migration, I need to resize them. I'll get to it, sometime. A ton of posts and snippets on living/working in China. Plus a personal experiences guest post series starting this week.

6. Possibly books. I read a lot. But I haven't actually read something new and good in a few years. I do eliminate most books because they're not long enough to be worth buying (I can read any book in a matter of hours).

Was That Comment Because of My Race?

After reading this post by my French yummy mummy blogger friend, Muriel Jacques, I felt compelled to analyze what had happened to me yesterday at the post office.

However, I knew deep down it bothered me and reading Muriel's post sort of gave me permission to admit to myself that it was something and not just nothing.   Read more >

My High School Yearbook Threw Me Into A Mid-Life Crisis

Next year, my high school batch (or "class," as most Americans call it) will be celebrating our silver jubilee.  Yes, it's been 25 years since I graduated from high school and frankly, it shocks me.  When I was younger, I've always felt like the silver jubilarians were ancient women. (We are an all-girls Catholic school).  But now I clearly, and conveniently, know better!   Read more >

To The Suicidal Stroller Moms Who Think They Own Our Subdivision

Dear Stroller Moms, Since we first moved to this subdivision, I have consistently seen your group during the mornings I either look out my window or actually step out of my house. I’m not friends with any of you, nor do I have any intention of becoming so. First of all, I won’t qualify given that my son no longer needs a stroller; and second, I have come to the realization that I’m better off pursuing fitness activities by my lonesome. But that’s actually the problem. I don’t think you’re walking around the subdivision with your strollers, sporting your sporty outfits, for fitness’ sake. And how do I know this? It’s because every time I see you, you are walking quite leisurely and all three of you are walking side by side… like you own the freakin’ road!!   Read more >
