Better Late Than Never
I know, I know, I'm the last person on Earth to start a blog. I'm not even sure if people still read blogs, but after discovering a younger Kappas blog that was totally fabulous (most likely because she is fabulous), I thought why not give it a shot?
So here I am, blogging away. I thought hard about why was I even starting a blog and who on Earth besides my mom will even read this. And my answer surprised me. I don't really care if anyone reads this blog, I think its more for me to express myself and have the crazy combination of thoughts that run through my head down on paper. I have a lot of different sides to me, and some are sides that aren't always encouraged or cultivated in the academic environment I'm in at the moment. So instead of waiting for that rare, encouraging atmosphere, I'm creating it right here on this very blog! I want to show people that you can be a smart independent woman, yet have your share of Jessica Simpson moments. I want people to see that you can carry on a debate about politics, then turn around and have a similarly fierce conversation about The Hills and the Rachel Zoe Project. It is possible to jam Britney Spears and Alanis Morissette on the same playlist and to read PopSugar.com in between psychological journal articles. And for those of you who say its not possible, watch me.
