In a nutshell

Currently, I'm an undergraduate student studying Human Development and Family Studies, Spanish, and Women's Studies, and prepping to graduate in May 2010. The plan is to get a job, make a few dollars, and function as an adult in this big bad world. I'm working on making the jump out of college and into a different reality where I pay more bills and get less recognition.

My initial purpose for this blog is, in fact, a senior seminar project for Women's Studies. So, expect plenty of social commentary, feminism, humanist nods, and a lot of venting and anger. Also, cross your fingers for a high dose of humanity (when I can muster it), hopefully some humor, and perhaps a touch of real knowledge and practical thoughts. I would like to keep this winner going into the future so as to become a fixture (albeit a small one) in the giant blogging world, but that will depend on my dedication and my ability to have any focus at all for my writings.

As a note, the title of blog is a phrase taken from a quote by Evelyn Cunningham that says, "Women are the only oppressed group in our society that lives in intimate association with their oppressors." I love this quote, and I also appreciate that there are reasons for this and ways to take this apart a little bit (save that for another day).

I'm new to the blogging world and thus have no clue what I'm doing. That is all.
