About the Site
Welcome! I’d like to start off by apologizing for giving my site a cutesy title like “The Little Narrator.” What was I thinking? And why haven’t I done anything to fix it yet?
I can tell you what I was thinking (although I know that was a rhetorical question). I wanted a title that either described the topic of the site. “A random blog sprinkled with short stories” did not seem like an appropriate title, however. So I decided to try describing the site’s author (yes, that’s me), but a title like “The girl who likes cute things, giggles during horror films, and wants to be a writer” only made me gag a little. Then I picked something worse, “The Little Narrator,” and fell in love. It’s the same kind of love one might have for a naked mole rat or a furry spider. They’re so ugly, they’re cute.
I decided to blog after committing my summer vacation to life on the road. My mom is a long haul truck driver and a computer programmer, so I’m learning all about driving big rigs and setting up simple websites. I grew up with my grandparents, and by coming on the road, I’m working toward a huge goal: getting closer to my mom and brother. As an added bonus, this summer has brought many unusual adventures (most of which have been the result of longboard excursions).
When the summer ends, I’ll return to my life at the University of Oregon, but I’ll keep blogging. I’m considering the following topics for fall term blog posts: dumpster diving, longboarding, creative writing, wacky professors, and strange things that happen at the mall.
