Long time no see! The thing is, I haven’t had much time to post because I’ve just been so busy hanging out with my celebrity friends. The life of the rich and famous isn’t as easy as it looks.
^^^Isn’t it so weird that so many people retweeted Ellen’s picture of me?
A lot has happened since you last heard from me…
That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet.
So lucy in paris dot com would, were it not lucy in paris dot com called,
Retain that dear perfection which it owes
Without that title…
I decided to rename my site.
Though Lucy in Paris dot com remains my passion, I’ve been expanding my writing to other outlets, like the school newspaper and BuzzFeed. Particularly BuzzFeed this week. Now I know that all publicity is good publicity, well-behaved women rarely make history, blah blah blah, but les détracteurs vont détester. Or, en anglais, haters gonna hate.
My first article, 35 Things You Appreciate About America After Living in Europe definitely ruffled some feathers. I mean I really stirred shit up with this one. So far, it’s gotten over 450,000 views, and like 700 responses from angry readers. Allow me to grace you with a highlight reel of the best responses:
Dear Europeans of BuzzFeed, what have I done?
“Started World War III,” according to someone.
Apparently my last article upset you so,
But there are a few more things that I think you should know.
I wanted to explain but still be aesthetic,
So I said “Lucy, let’s get poetic.”
