Hi, folks! My name is Clarissa. I'm a twenty-something student at UMSL, where I'm about to receive my BA in English. After that, I plan to apply for grad school with the ultimate goal of becoming a comp/rhet specialist, which is the professional field of writing research and instruction, particularly at a college level. I know ... that sounds totally exciting, right?
If I'm not posting about my personal life (or what I refer to as my racing thoughts), then I'm usually posting about my academic endeavors. I'm a serious student, but beyond that I don't take myself, or anything else for that matter, very seriously. And if it sounds like I do in my journal, please let me know because I'd hate to give anyone that kind of impression. I'm known to be straight-forward and a little abrasive as far as my personality is concerned. I'm also fond of strong language and adult subject matter, so you've been warned.
I'm a prolific reader and writer, so you can expect plenty of comments and updates from me should you choose to become my new friend. My journal is currently Friends Only, but that's just because I like to know who's reading what. So, if you're interested in Literature, Language and Writing, or just life, the universe and everything else in general, feel free to friend away!
