This blog is acting as my outlet for the stresses of academia. Here is where I’m documenting my foray into married life as a New York transplant living in the Louisiana Bayou. Follow me as I explore this new phase of life, learning as I go about what it means to be married and making a home together for the first time!
Il faut d’abord durer
above all, one must endure
I created this blog as a way to stay in touch with my friends and family back in New York. Currently, I am in a process of transition. I was just married, and I am currently living in Louisiana working on my PhD in Literature (hence the title of this blog). I come from a very tight-nit, Italian-Greek family, so our decision to move across the country came as quite the surprise to them (honestly I surprised myself). I left the safety of a job as a tenured English teacher in Westchester New York to pursue a Doctorate in the Humanities…not the most financially strategic course, My father would say. But life is all about the experiences, not the money, right?
