Hi! I’m Alix! Here I am with my BFF, Oscar Wilde, somewhere in the vicinity of 2004. You can date it by the tragic corduroy skirt I’m sporting. Anyway, we’re pretty tight, me and Oscar. Growing up, my Dad used to read me Wilde’s plays before bed, and as such, I’ve always had a soft spot for the guy.
I started this blog in 2010 after being harassed into doing so for by two of my best friends. What began as a vehicle for updating distant friends and relations on my life gradually morphed into this non-specific, weird, public journal. About two years ago, I stopped updating regularly to focus on grad school and other projects, but I still post on this blog from time to time. You can see some of my other past work linked here, or follow me on Twitter to keep updated on my other projects.
A note on pseudonyms: on principle, I substitute real names for first initials or nicknames. This started because I frequently write about my friends and family on this site, and some of them requested early on to be known by handles rather than real names.
