Ernest Hemingway once said
"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed".
I agree with that statement, however, I will not be doing any bleeding here and I certainly do not intend to use a freaking typewriter. What is this all about then?
Do you remember the last time you were truly excited about something? So excited in fact that you could not stop thinking about it, and everytime you did you just got that much more excited? Well, I do, and for some of us, it's a daily occurence.
I'm not referring to the random funny meme you stumble upon in your daily Instadive, or that funny picture currently circulating in your friend group; I mean true, unadulterated excitement. That joy, that bliss you experience, we shall henceforth refer to as Un-Ironic Enthusiasm.
This blog is all about un-ironic enthusiasm. Every week, I will post an article about something of interest to me, as a Black Geek. I will address the peculiar, write about what I love (like Oxford Commas), and rant about what I loathe.
Disclaimer: The previous paragraph basically means, I will write about what I want, when I want, and however I want it (coy laughing emoji). Don't worry though, I will try my best to be regular.
In the immortal words of the Trashcan Man, "My Life For You" ; "my life" being 1-2 hours of my time every week, and "you" being, well nobody because...you know.. (unconfortable silence emoji).
BTW, I really do hope you know who the Trashcan Man is. He'll be mentioned again, and again..
..not a typewriter
