First of all, I want to set the record straight: I’m not really a mouse. Mice can’t update a blog! Get real. Secondly, this blog is not intended to diagnose, prevent, treat or cure any disease, including but not limited to: scurvy, Bee-Gee’s Disease and writer’s block.
I’ve been writing silly short stories, poems and raps since childhood. Seeing that I’m (obviously) not a professional writer by any standard, I’ve been encouraged to NOT quit my day job (despite my consistent longing to write creatively … like a young girl longs for a Shetland pony). This blog is a nice solution to my little “amateur writer with a full-time job” dilemma.
I recently moved to Chicago from Bloomington, Illinois. After being tormented by my friends for years about being a down-home-Bob Evans-eating-country-girl I decided it was high time to give the ol’ city life a try.
So in April of 2010, I packed up my belongings and my cat, Bruce, and hit the road to city-ism. I promptly staked the land of Logan Square and set up camp.
The idea for this blog originally sparked at the local Target. It was move-in weekend, and I noticed a few incongruities between city and country that I could not ignore. The rest is blogisty!
