First, a welcome. Welcome to my blog, which will be a collection of ramblings about my cats, the media I enjoy, graduate school, and anything else that pops into my head at any given time. You'll never know what you are getting from me!
My name is Sharon, and I am a graduate student in Professional Communication. That probably doesn't mean much to most of you who are reading this, so let me explain. At my university, our Master's program in Communication can really be formed to whatever the student wants it to be. I have chosen a route that involves taking mostly media classes. My goal is to become an excellent Cultural Studies scholar, and eventually spend most of my time teaching at a university and watching television shows and critiquing them for research. This blog is a start up to make that happen.
I am also happily married. We have been together since we were 18, and have been together for 6 years (if you do the math, you can figure out how old we are at this point in time). He is a web designer for a trucking company, but enjoys media about as much as I do. We have three wonderful, furry children who never cease to make us laugh. Their names are Carbon Teddy(like the element), Hiro Bonsai (like the character from Heroes), and Echo Lilian Penny (Echo from Dollhouse, Lily from How I Met Your Mother, and Penny from The Big Bang Theory). My other passions include traveling, doing home improvement projects (even when they might not be necessary), and many other things that will be unveiled in this blog.
