English Lessons

I’ve always wanted an excuse to blog. While I struggled with the idea of publicly processing my day or overconfidently assuming innocent internet browsers would care enough to actually read a sentence or two, I secretly believed my life was interesting enough to write about. Maybe not novel-worthy, maybe not newspaper-article-worthy and maybe not even reality-T.V.-show worthy but at least blog-worthy, right?

“Right,” I decided, and so I began this blog.

My blog-worthy reasons:

I just moved from the United States to England to attend graduate school and, hopefully, receive a master’s in English.

I also just graduated from college and with my very own blog my friends can know what I’m up to at all times.

Several of my friends have recently started their own blogs, and I don’t want to feel left out.

I have two people so far who have promised faithful readership – thanks mom and dad.

Now to explain the title of this blog… “English Lessons” refers to two things:

1. what I am studying at school – the literature type of English
2. what I am learing from the English people around me as I spend time immersed in their culture

Just one example of #2 that has happened already (I can practically hear the future snickers those last words will produce.): I ordered cream for my coffee at a local coffee/ice cream shop, and after giving me a puzzled look, the cashier reached for a giant bottle of whipped cream used for topping on sundeas and squirted a tower of it on top of my daily blend.

Note to self: ORDER CREAM WITH COFFEE. It’s way better that half-and-half…

  1. Excellent items from you, man. I’ve have in mind your
    stuff previous to and you’re simply too great. I actually
    like what you have got right here, really like
    what you are stating and the way in which during which you
    are saying it. You’re making it enjoyable and you still take care of to stay it sensible.
    I can’t wait to learn far more from you. This is actually a
    wonderful web site.
