Abstract:
This thesis consists of a selection of short autobiographical fiction stories that explore how even from a distance my family impacts my daily life. In these stories, I present a fictionalized version of myself to portray how I have sought to set boundaries in relationships with both friends and family in college. The title “Me Me Me Is Dull Dull Dull” references a saying my father has often repeated to me and pokes fun at how I focus on myself in the work.
