Refrain of the Week

This week, I’m thinking about taking a page from Melville’s book and adopting a new refrain from Bartleby the Scrivener.

Thesis prospectus? I would prefer not to.

Please notify the department of your final thesis committee: I would prefer not to.

Final papers? I would prefer not to.

Off-month budgeting? I would prefer not to.

Planning for next year? I would prefer not to.

Making decisions? I would prefer not to.

The author of Snark on the Side is not your average run-of-the-millennial generation. Jen is a contradiction in terms: a graceful klutz, a smart blond, a math-savvy English major, a southern liberal, and an employed young adult with a master’s degree. Snark on the Side is a work in progress, born out of years of rambling email newsletters and anthropomorphized Christmas letters, small town observations, and the ever-present irony of pursuing a career with a degree in English literature. Thanks for visiting!
