Hey, I’m Claire. And I’m part superhuman.
This is more than just your typical white-girl blog. This is a blog written by me, Claire! I go by my middle name because my first name, Elizabeth, sounds like a colonial lady who gathers eggs and makes butter all day, which wouldn’t be so bad but I’m looking for something a bit more meaningful in my life.
I was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, America’s newest little hipster city that I love with every piece of my heart. I wore Catholic school plaid for fourteen years before I left my sheltered private school life and went to college just a few blocks away to one of the most diverse, cultured, gay, artsy, highly recognized, and beautiful schools- Virginia Commonwealth University. My father died in May 2009, but I know he is always with me. I live with my momma and baby brother, and commute to school. My hobbies include baking, sewing, being yelled at by customers about Obamacare at my pharmacy job and applying for scholarships. My favorite color is turquoise and I plan to be a librarian when I retire from teaching history.
“And these tend inward to me, and I tend outward to them,
And such as it is to be of these more or less I am,
And of these one and all I weave the song of myself”
-Walt Whitman, Song of Myself
