So, in case you don’t read my first post this is a simple introduction of myself and this blog. My name is Emily. I am currently a senior attending college in Oregon. I love to read and write and am therefore majoring in English. My passions include social justice, music, and literature.
This began as a school assignment, but has quickly developed into a pastime of my own.
Though this blog is named after tea, it really is more focused on my love for literature, writing, and other elements of the English language. If you came expecting a blog on tea I am deeply sorry as you will be severely disappointed. I hope you can enjoy reading the musings of a busy English major rather than a blog all about a fabulous beverage.
I hope my blog will give an introduction into the workings of my literate brain. That’s a part of the reason I named this blog “A Cup of English Tea”. When I write I warm up my brain, start getting ideas going. Once I have my ideas selected they need to stew and develop a bit. And then of course I can spill them out into a cup (or a blog if you will) where the world can enjoy if they wish to do so. Admittedly my tea does not always come out right. Sometimes it doesn’t brew quite long enough. Other times it perhaps brews a little too long, giving it an overwhelming strength that others might not like. So as you delve into my blog, please understand that I write this as a simple collection of the thoughts that spill from my brain about English, writing, life and whatever else may occupy my attention.
