Who am I? I am a fan of Les Miserables who believes the only acceptable answer to that question is 24601.
To be more specific though, I am a student currently attending the University of Arizona with a planned double major in Global Studies (Middle East focus) and Linguistics. I recently graduated from South Charleston High School, which is the only IB school in the state of West Virginia. Since I’m speaking here about what I study, I should also mention that I love languages and am studying intensively Spanish, French, and Arabic. I hope to learn others, but these and my native English are my focus for now.
I love travel and adventure, whether the adventure is one I find inside a book out in the world. Books are the greatest material objects ever invented in my opinion, so much so that I sometimes measure time with them (“I could go out, or I could use the same amount of time to read the next hundred pages.” “2010? Oh! That’s the year I read Lord of the Rings!”). I love writing as well, and that’s how I spend most of my free time, even if the things I write rarely end up here on the blog. Maybe in the future.
And finally, since I’m a college student, the question everyone wants to have answered is what I plan to do with my life. After college, I know I would like to go into the Peace Corps and, following that, get my Master’s (maybe Doctorate) degree. There are various fields that interest me, but I’m not setting anything in stone just yet. The only real plan I have is to live life to the fullest and make a difference along the way.
