immense commitment, insane hours, and a bit of yoga

14 October
Media junkie and academic who hopes to update rebuild her web page someday. Optimist in cynic's clothing.

I tend to talk about my life, grad school, whatever media (music, tv, movies, books) I'm consuming at the moment, my opinions, and stock car racing (I grew up with it). This is a friends-locked journal. Add me and comment to my only public post to introduce yourself if you'd like to be friended.

"Immense commitment, insane hours, and a bit of yoga" is a quote from the BBC mystery series Waking The Dead. It seemed to sum up my life fairly well, so it stuck.
