My parents named me Patricia mostly because my mom couldn’t figure out how to pronounce “Margaret” correctly. I’m not sure what it is about Brady Bunch-era baby names that appealed to my parents so much, but it is what it is. I guess you could say that the title of my blog serves as a coping mechanism of sorts, even if it is kinda lame.
(Also: if you happen to have an aunt/grandmother/second-grade teacher/dental hygienist over the age of 50 who is also named Patricia, I don’t want to hear it.)
I really hate it when people make the idea of “writing” out to be some unattainable state of higher being, placing it on a pedestal so high as to fend off the noisy bloggers and wannabe “writers” in the name of good taste and intemallectualism. Part of the reason I say this is because I’m probably not as good a writer as I think. I’m flippant, verbose, and sometimes I don’t proofread.
Honestly, I just don’t like to believe that something I so genuinely enjoy doing requires so much conscious work. We ought to put a little more faith in our brains, I think, trusting in the fact that our subconsciouses are capable of putting together words and sentences in a cohesive manner and are capable of keeping these words and sentences intact as they make the journey from mind to paper (or computer screen, or what have you). If anything, writing ought to be a conversation. A horribly one-sided conversation where I get to ramble on for 2000-plus words at a time before I’m interrupted by the comments section, but a conversation nevertheless.
So this is my conversation with you, friend. Here you will find the ramblings of my brain, laid out in pixels and frames for your reading convenience. My brain likes to think about K-pop a lot — probably more than it should — but it also likes to think about things like art and music and society and culture and the needlessly metaphysical. I use first person pronouns a lot here, but my tendency towards narcissism is something I’m working on.
