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.
It worked for Bartleby, right?

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 degree-holder, a southern liberal, and an adult amateur equestrian who doesn’t match her saddle pads.
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.

One thought on “Refrain of the Week”
Hello Jen, I really love the way you play with words to script down your thoughts, emotions, feelings and imaginations… Keep it up.
