Hello Internet, it certainly has been awhile. It was rather rude of me to unveil myself and then disappear for a month. Now you know I’m a flake. This is such a crappy, flaky thing to say but honesty life got in the way. Other than being a flake, you should also know that I am a recent university graduate and after spending a summer working part-time and sitting in the sun the rest of the time, I was taken by surprise by the sudden urge to find more work so as to feel useful. This is my first September in seven years that I am not attending classes and it is a bit jarring, especially when I work on a University campus. Everyone else is having hair-pulling academic stress fun but me. Additionally, I have a lot of student debt. So, I spent September working every odd job I could find on top of my part-time.
All the while I have not forgotten this blog. In fact I have been reading quite a bit. I finished reading The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters. I have re-read Bridget Jones’s Diary and am looking forward to posting about it because the experience second time around was drastically different from my first reading a year ago. As a bonus I also watched the movie, which is awful. I have also started to re-read Bergdorf Blondes, which I still find hilarious, even though any of my classmates from last year who are reading this probably still think I’m crazy. And finally, I have been reading essays from Chick Lit: The New Woman’s Fiction by Suzanne Ferriss and Mallory Young.
In between all of that, I sometimes lust after an Amazon Kindle. My desire for an ebook reader has been intense and everlasting (four months). I have decided on a Kindle to read and carry all my chick-lit goodness on and am now waiting for a steady second job to kick in so as to purchase the object of my lust.
In closing I think I should leave you with a little hope for the future. I believe that part of my flakiness is a problem with thinking too big too fast. I wasn’t sure what a good posting schedule would be for Bitch Lit. I want it to be super good and super awesome so that means posting every day! Right? Maybe wrong. So here it is: I will post every Monday. Maybe there will be smaller, off the cuff posts every so often but you can be sure that a post will be up on Monday. Let’s see where things go from there, shall we?
