Hi! I’m Rachel, and I like books. I also like pie, but this blog has nothing to do with that (unfortunately).

I am a recent college graduate with a degree in modern literature, and I have decided to launch this blog for a few reasons:

  1. Job hunting is hard and as it turns out, lit degrees don’t exactly guarantee incredible, high-paying jobs in the same way that computer science degrees do (who knew??).
  2. Soooo, I need to learn some technical skills.  In other words, if all goes well, this should be a pretty kickass blog by the time I get done learning how to make it look that way.
  3. And, I need writing samples. Have I mention that I like to read? Okay, so put those two things together.

Viola!  Highbrow Lowbrow is born.

Let’s see how it goes.
