Brittni’s Notebook is an eclectic mix of stories, book, movie & T.V. reviews, and even includes a cooking and recipe section. It is written by Brittni Kayne, a young woman in a small rural Wyoming town.
Brittni describes herself a “not so modern woman” as she has a love of William Shakespeare and Old English literature. Brittni also notes that she is an “English major and not afraid to use it”. However, she does have a sense of humor about the hurdles English majors face in today’s world. In one post she says,
“During my last semester as an English major, I was required to take Senior Seminar: a horrific class in which students were pelted with literature spanning 3,000 years along with theory from the last 300 years in a last-ditch attempt to make sure we knew everything English majors ought to know before going out in the world to have long theoretical discussions with our coworkers (because that’s what people at insurance companies and restaurants like to talk about, right?).”
Despite poking fun at herself Brittni does put her English degree and study of history to good use, by providing historical context for her excellent reviews. In commenting on the modern viewers of Game of Thrones, Brittni notes:
” If there’s one thing I learned from this season of Game of Thrones, it’s that HBO’s modern television audience isn’t so different from the audience that sat in the theaters of Ancient Greece. Today’s business executives, fast food workers, college students, and stay-at-home moms love bread and circuses as much as the Roman people who cheered on gladiators or the French peasants who attended guillotine executions during the 1700s. Perhaps witnessing a man get stabbed several times by his so-called brothers and watching his blood leak out onto the snow reminds us that traffic jams, missed appointments, or late papers aren’t the end of the world after all.”
Brittni’s Notebook also has a number of incredibly beautiful photographs of Wyoming.
The posts describe the simple pleasures of a road trip or a hike, while being surrounded by beauty.
While calling herself “not so modern”, Brittni Kayne is, in fact , a true Renaissance Woman. She is using the modern technology to produce a truly professional blog. She has not limited herself to one theme and wants to explore all the aspects of life, from music to food and entertainment and photography.
We look forward to reading more of Brittni’s Notebook in the future, and wish Brittni success on all her future writing.
