Chronicling my attempts at reading, writing, reading about writing, writing about reading, teaching and trying to raise a baby. Both in my graduate work and outside of it, because life happens while you're in graduate school.
Italianist and Literaturist. Cal Bear and Wisconsin Badger. Mother (Liam and Kerry). Avid reader, tv-watcher, moviegoer.
I like to think that I am fun, serious, focused, lighthearted, passionate and ridiculous. All at the same time.
