“Write a blog,” they said. “It’ll be great,” they said.


Greetings and welcome to my blog. If you’re reading this you’re probably a good friend of mine or maybe an old friend/classmate/colleague that I haven’t talked to in years save for a few Instagram likes and Facebook comments. You may even be a new friend trying to figure out where I lie on the crazy spectrum. It’s okay, I probably have stalked or will stalk your page too. In fact I wrote about it once, but we won't get into that here.

No matter who you are, I welcome you, but I’m also here to warn you. What you’re about to embark on is a journey through my mind (each little voice in my head says hi by the way). I can’t guarantee it’s going to be any good or even entertaining so at the end of each blog post I’ll include a special TL;DR/CliffsNotes version for those of you that don’t like reading, but still secretly want to know what’s up.

So you’re probably wondering: “Marissa, why are you starting a blog?”. And to that I say, “New life, who dis?” But seriously, as some of you may...
