No don’t worry; I’m not lost trying to find myself. Well that’s not what this blog is about anyway. I’m addressing my title. Adventures of a Literate Clerk that is. Let me give the history of the blog title. I originally just used my name as my title. That was fine and all until a coworker decided to google me. He found my Tumblr, read the blog, and found it hilarious. It was kind of nice to be appreciated. There was only one problem. That defeated the purpose of Tumblr. It’s nice to have a space to publish things to everyone except the people I know. It’s a more authentic diary. The first time I made a Tumblr I announced it to the world. A good friend of mine scolded me saying, “The first rule of Tumbler is you don’t talk about Tumblr.”
Anyway back to the title. Once my coworker found my page I decided to change the title to protect my privacy. I’m an English major who lives OUTSIDE OF and works in a town full of idiots. Thus the title Adventures of a Literate Clerk was born.
Now onto explaining the second crisis. I may not always be a literate clerk. A number of things could happen. I could get fired. That might not be too bad. I kind of like the ring of Adventures of the Literate Has-Been. I could end up going blind. It would take some time before I could title the blog Adventures of the Braille Reading Clerk. On a more optimistic note I could finish college and get a real job. Who knows? The point is that I want this blog to be a living thing. It will probably change with me. That could include the title.
Speaking of change I’ve been wearing pants for far too long now. Bye!
