This blog is the brainchild of two recent college grads who just love to write about anything and everything. Our tagline states our purpose best–
“silly to serious, with some snark.”
There have been some questions regarding the name of the blog. Mallory put it best in the very first post:
A word about the title of this blog. Right before we graduated from college about a month ago, I discovered a book called Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six Word Memoirs From Writers Famous and Obscure. The idea of the book is to challenge people to pen their own six-word memoirs, a challenge to which my friends and I have become addicted. It’s thrilling to whittle a scenario, or a life, down to only six words. One of my favorite examples from the book is Stephen Colbert’s: “Well, I thought it was funny.” Simply because it’s fun, we wanted to incorporate the idea of the six-word memoir into our fledgling blog. And with a nod to each of our idealistic natures (I’m going into conflict resolution, Kathleen breathes politics), we threw in the “change the world” part. Because we each hope we can, with or without the blog.
Some of you might have noticed this already, but the title of every post (and the blog! And the tagline!) is a six word memoir. To read the rest of Mal’s inaugural post, click here.
