I’m a PhD candidate writing on 18th-century British literature and teaching introductory composition and English courses. I started this blog so I could shout excitably about wigs and novels where dudes throw urine on each other mid-fistfight and chicks blush a lot and faint sexily.

But recently I decided to leave academia, so this blog will ALSO be where I work through the joys/pains/terrors/excitements of alt-ac/post-ac/Admiral Ackbar (just kidding, I’m more of a Trekkie). I’ll be talking about my experiences and sharing others’ useful advice on this transition. But I haven’t told most people in my department, so if you’re one of them, then, um, don’t tell anyone, kay?
