LMR is someone in their late twenties who has yet to figure out who they are and what they will be.

When she auditioned for Wheel of Fortune, she solicited the help of her internet peers in order to find an appropriate occupation. “Minutiae expert” and “internet loafer” were the two responses she got, and quite accurate ones at that. She ended up going with “freelance writer”, a half-lie since she hasn’t done that for years now.

Oddly enough, during round two of the audition process, “free-lance artist” was the puzzle she solved. She thinks it may have been a sign.

You can also find her at http://www.twoplayercoop.com, where she tries to remember about writing about media issues.

    Maria Yzecka wrapped a black ringlet around her finger, her jaw slack as the hour rolled by. By all means, she should hate this class — her teachers had labeled her as one of the “unsavories”, with her penchant for black clothing, fou...
