I’m Ms. Brigitte and I’m an adjunct at a community college teaching in the communications department. I live in Florida with my wonderful life partner Walter (aka boyfriend) and foundling cat Mr. Pants. My step-son is around too, but I won’t embarrass him by putting him on my blog. This blog, founded in 2007, used to be called Unwed Human Female until the name confused my friends too much, prompting me to change the name to Ms. Brigitte’s Mild Ride.
I’ve changed the blog/site around a lot in the last few years, specifically by making about half my posts private, deleting countless others, and generally nuking my Google ranking. This is because I was, for three years, a High School English teacher, and I really didn’t want students looking me up. Now I’m an adjunct and I don’t think I’m interesting enough to Google, so a lot of my old posts are being restored. Since I was a HS teacher I try not to use profanity in my blog posts, in case you were wondering about that for some reason.
I also write haiku and make
silly amazing collages. I have been making collages for almost 20 years now. Occasionally a movie or television review will pop up here as well … see, it’s kind of a random blog. Random things that have been on the blog include: art toys, collages, contemporary art, dolls, high fashion, haiku, handmade tutorials, kokeshi dolls, literary analysis, movie reviews, rants, reality television opinions, resin jewelry, studio photos, video game reviews/walkthroughs, and zines. What one may call unfocused, I choose to believe is eclectic.
I also love literary scholarship thanks to my MA in English Literature. That sounds like I’m bragging, but it took me 10 years to get is, so trust me, I’m not. If you are also researching topics which I am writing about, hopefully this site will help you along your journey; that is kind of the point of scholarship after all, isn’t it? On that topic …
