Who shames the storm and the archer's aim;
When exiled on earth, amidst the booing crowds,
By his giant wings is rendered lame."
-Charles Baudelaire, "The Albatross" (last stanza, my own translation from the French). The bird with the largest wings on Earth, that can soar for hours in the sky without beating its wings, but on land can barely walk without looking ridiculous. That, essentially, is me.
My name's Alexander, I'm from Federal Way, WA (Seattle-Tacoma area), now living in Arkansas. Originally, from the city, I'm surprisingly enjoying my new country life, and I enjoy going for walks by the fields whenever I'm not practicing, which I do a lot of as a cello performance student at the University of Central Arkansas. I'm immensely interested in foreign languages and culture (I'm half French [my dad] and speak the language more or less fluently) and would love to live abroad one day. I'm intelligent, passionate, driven, and above all affectionate.
