About

I wish there was a pithy list I could use to sum up the blog you have stumbled upon. You know how the comic XKCD is subtitled “A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math and language” ? I can’t really do that.

You’ve entered Ben Lilly’s media closet. If you are so inclined you can use this site, and the links scattered throughout it, to peruse my fiction writing, poetry, writing for the stage, travel photography and travelogues, translations, and work done for my bachelor’s studies in linguistics. But more importantly, while flipping backwards you’ll find my (true?) account of a Californian exploring (or transplanted into) various places, and trying to make sense of it all. My aim is to keep it audience-friendly and avoid the truly dirty details: more memoir than diary. But ultimately, you’ll probably find perusing these pages to be much like having a casual conversation with their author. You’re here as a friend, so welcome.

Okay. I guess if I had to create a pithy headline, it would be: “A blog of angst, linguistics and run-on sentences.” But that doesn’t begin to cover it all.

If anything interests you, please feel free to leave a comment – I know WordPress makes it a nuisance, asking for an account and so forth, but try. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi, I stumbled upon your blog by accident and happened to read your post about Time. I have to say I am very impressed with your writing style considering that you wrote that blog as a high school student. Just wanted to tell you that I find your writing refreshing!

So I don’t know how I got to your blog, and I guess Google must have brought it up somehow in my crazy searches. But your post about going to UCSC over NYU made me feel a lot better about UCSC. I was in the exact same position / having the exact same thoughts this year. Thank you.
