Hello and welcome to my blog! I am Trisha, a professor at a community college teaching a variety of composition, literature, film, and creative writing courses. Lucky for me my job feeds my passion as I am a true bibliophile obsessed with reading, reviewing, logging, discussing, organizing, smelling, and touching books. No tasting though. That’s just strange.
I love learning about damn near everything and that is why I titled my blog Unfinished Intellectual. While I have spent much of my life in the pursuit of knowledge – I have a BA, two MAs, and an online teaching certificate – I still feel entirely unfinished and unlearned. We have the whole world of knowledge open to us through books, school, experience, and each other, and my goal with this blog is to continually learn and grow and share with all of you.
I previously blogged at eclectic/eccentric, but after having my first child, my blogging fell by the wayside. The arrival of my second child and my choice to pursue another Masters degree meant my attempts to get back into blogging were doomed to fail. I may, from time to time, pull posts from there especially as I re-read previously reviewed books. Now that my kids are out of diapers – one is in school, one is a year shy of schooling – and I have completed my degree, I am ready to start reading and writing and cooking and teaching and doing more of what makes me me. And I am ready to learn and share with all of you.
I hope you will read and learn and comment so that I can also learn from you!
