My self-summary
I'm a student of English, and deeply interested in the history of language, and the way languages work. I'm interested in the way pretty much everything works. I love reading - especially books of the escapist kind - and I can get lost for hours in a dictionary.
I like lots of things: chatting with friends in a quiet pub, cooking with old family recipes, re-reading a book I already know well. I get excited by the chance to learn something new, no matter what it is, and I have a deep, inexplicable affection for quirky accents, spiral staircases, kaleidoscopes, old Enid Blyton books, and the Oxford comma.
I prefer mountains to the beach; I envy people who are properly fluent in several languages; and I suspect that all cameras, everywhere, are involved in a conspiracy to make my head look a funny shape in photographs. Possibly as the result of a childhood curse.
It would be great to meet some new people!
What I’m doing with my life
Taking my PhD, attempting to teach undergraduates about English Literature, and dividing my anxiety between worrying that I need to work harder and worrying that I don't get out enough.
I’m really good at
Writing other people's essays, baking piroshki, smiling at strangers, teaching English, not getting lost in strange cities... I'm sure there are more, but these will do for now.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How many postgrad degrees is too many postgrad degrees?
