About Me

Misanthropy: hatred of mankind; a disposition to dislike and mistrust other people – wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

Okay, that’s not completely true. But there’s a combination of disappointment in mankind and a certain amount of mistrust. I think the disappointment actually comes from my optimism. How else could someone be so frequently frustrated with other people if she wasn’t expecting them to make better decisions to begin with?

Misanthropy does not necessarily imply an inhumane or sociopathic attitude towards humanity and on the contrary is generally a reaction to the observed prevalence of these and other backward properties of the present state of the human race.

I’m an aging-hipster, east-coast transplant, the daughter of a Navy officer, and I moved from Indianapolis to Chicago after almost twenty years in the Hoosier state. I received my MA in under two years and now work for that alma mater.
