I'm a fourth year political science student at, you guessed it, UF.
I moved Florida from Bryson City, North Carolina (you get a sticker
if you've ever heard of the place) for undergrad. My plans after
graduation are to either continue studying Turkish in Ankara or to
join the airforce and continue studying the language there. History
and international relations are my areas of interest, specifically
Turkish and Ottoman history and culture.
My free time is spent almost exclusively in front of the computer
or drinking with friends.
What I’m doing with my life
Nothing quickly. Studying in Turkey soon, enlisting in the Air
Force after that.
I’m really good at
History, trivia, reading, writing, talking. Typical humanities
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
These lists are always a huge pain, so I'll just do top three or
four of each in no particular order.
Movies - Fifel Goes West, Star Wars, Mononoke Hime, Fight Club,
Planet Earth (if that counts), Fetih 1453 and some others
Books - Villians By Necessity, all things Tolkien, The Belgariad,
Confederates in the Attic, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,
Shows - Californication and Games of Thrones are the only things
airing that I watch.
Food - Spaghetti, Ice Cream, Corned Beef and Cabbage, Baked Ziti.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How in the hell Game of Thrones is going to end.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the bar, or at home watching anime and drinking with my mates.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a huge fan of weird Japanese anime and I've watched tons and
tons of it. This raises eyebrows amongst a lot of people I meet.
