Welcome, I’m Marley:
An anxious, bubbly, slightly neurotic, creative, awkward, lovable 24 (almost 25!) year old girl who unevenly splits her time between D.C. and upstate NY.
Currently, I attend graduate school in the district working towards my MFA in Creative Writing. One more year and I’ll be forced to join the real world.
I used to be a swimmer. I competed from the time I was 7 until the ripe old age of 21 when I graduated from college. It’s been three years, but I’m still getting used to the whole “not being forced to exercise everyday” life.
Some of my favorite things in life are food (mostly everything except tofu and olives), film (David Fincher and Christopher Nolan especially), nature (hiking in the Adirondacks, lounging at the Jersey shore), and literature (I get inappropriately, obsessively involved in young adult series and also enjoy finer authors like Didion and Marquez).
I am at this point in time attempting to get obsessed with running. Our relationship has started off bumpy, but I’m hanging in there for the long haul.
I’ll be honest, I don’t know what direction this blog is going to take. I like taking pictures of food, I am hoping I will hold myself accountable for exercise on here too.
So, stick around. You never know where I might end up!
