Blog posting written by Chloe Wilson, Television-Radio ’14, FLEFF Intern, Ashland, Massachusetts.

You can’t have my microtopia.

Sorry, but not really.

My personal definition of microtopias reflects my own personal experiences.  I believe that each person has their own microtopia as a result of interacting with different environments.  No two people have the same experiences.

I grew up in the suburbs of Massachusetts.  I am a Television-Radio major (the most popular at Ithaca College).  I’m a girl.

There’s a good chunk of people who fit that exact same description, but none of them are like me.  While a group of us may be defined by these vague terms, they don’t actually fit anyone.

The term “one size fits all” is silly because there is no such thing.  No term fits everyone because everyone is different. No microtopia belongs to everyone, because everybody has their own.

You can’t have my microtopia, but you can explore it with me. 

We can share my microtopia, but only for a little while. 

You have your own microtopia to discover.  Once you discover yours, I’m sure you’ll be spending a lot more time there.

Invite me over, will you?
