My name is Elyse and this is my blog!
As you may have guessed from the title of this blog, I’m something of a curmudgeon. I’ve never been a cynic or a pessimist, but I’ve always been a rule-follower, a worrier, and an introvert. I’m your classic party-pooper, if you will. It took me nearly my whole life to realize that I’m not, no matter how hard I try, a free spirit– and that that’s perfectly okay! This blog will chronicle my attempts to find contentment and balance in an extrovert’s world, and to open myself to new experiences without fundamentally changing who I am.
I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with my darling boyfriend, but was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia. I’m a library clerk and I’m slowly working my way towards my dream of being a librarian– however long that may take!
I love comic books (yeah, that’s me up there dressed like Wonder Woman for a 5K), cartoons, and television in general. My lofty dream goal is to pitch a cartoon or sitcom idea, though I know those are not happening. I also love weird home decor, makeup, cooking, and clothes. I’m a terrible potty-mouth and unfortunately pretty gross, but I like to think of myself as a compassionate, sometimes-likable person! Hope you’ll feel the same!
