The Most Wonderful Time

This is the time of year when getting up before 10 a.m. begins to feel like a real accomplishment.

The start of the thesis semester for an MA student is a combination of not taking classes, rearranging work schedules, just having written a long, supremely nebulous document about another supremely long, nebulous document that will be defended ages from now and also tomorrow…you get the picture.

But I’m realizing that dreading things takes a whole lot more effort than just doing them: like taking down Christmas decorations, responding to emails, opening a book, scheduling appointments, and even getting out of bed.

*Whew! Talk about a productive morning. Now I’m ready for a nap…*

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!
