Hi! Welcome to Kettle on the Stove. My name is Claire and I am a graduate student who is always one day closer to graduation. I intend this space as an outlet for non-academic writing, as I spend most of my days surrounded by academic writing (either through reading or my own work). As such, I imagine this blog will include a variety of topics that interest me such as 90s television, running, cooking/baking, and popular culture.
Why is this blog called “Kettle on the Stove”? Some might say I have an obsession with tea. These people would be right. I can usually be found with a hot mug of some kind of tea at any given moment throughout the day. And, as you might have guessed, in my house there is always a kettle on the stove ready to boil.
Please feel free to explore the site and send me any questions or comments. I cannot guarantee that what I write will be interesting, entertaining, or profound, but I can guarantee that I will use my own words, and cite any sources that I use (naturally).
