Latest from the Blog
Welcome to Peanut Butter and Julie! I’m brand new to this blogging thing. Other than school papers and professional letters, I’ve never written words for other people to read. But I decided if I survived 2020, I would finally do it. Let’s face it, 2020 was a terrible year. Arguably the worst in my lifetime. I honestly wasn’t sure I’d make it; if COVID didn’t get me, my mental health issues would. But I made it, so here we are.
I read All the President’s Men in high school and decided I was going to be a journalist. I know, how fucking cliché, right? (By the way, if you don’t like profanity, this is DEFINITELY not the blog for you) I was going to write words for a living. I was going to win Pulitzer prizes and change the mother fucking world. My sophomore year in college, I took a general ed US government class and decided I’d be a lawyer/politician instead, and changed my major to political science. I was going to win elections and change the mother fucking world. After graduation, I started working and law school was postponed permanently. I waited tables, worked in retail record stores, spent 14 years in the auto insurance world and another several in health care. Now I am a wrangler at a dog daycare. I haven’t won prizes or elections, and I haven’t changed the world. But I never stopped writing words.
This blog will primarily be about all things pop culture. It is not hyperbole to say that I am obsessed with pop culture. I don’t just consume it, I live it and breathe it. And here, I will write about it. With any luck, you will enjoy reading my words; if not, that’s okay. I used to think I couldn’t write anything that people would want to read. I’ve come to realize that I only need to write words that I would want to read.
If you’ve made it through this intro, I thank you, and I look forward to writing more words for you.
