-Edgar Allan Poe
I'm an English major at the University of Louisville. I love reading and I have since I was a kid. Reading is part of what made me want to be a teacher because if it wasn't for some of my earliest ones I would have never realized how much I love reading. I love to write as well and I write short stories and poetry in my spare time. I am currently working on expanding my library of classic and modern works so if you're ever looking for me on one of the rare Saturdays I have off I'm usually in a book store looking around.
Learning for me is something that I need to have. I love to research new topics and if I find myself interested in a subject I immerse myself in finding out what its all about. There's often times where I'll read about something in a book or on the internet that I don't recognize and I'll end up with 50 different tabs open because while reading about the initial subject I'll see something else I don't know anything about and one thing leads to another. I have knowledge on subjects that I have no intention of ever using simply because they fascinated me.
I'm an avid video game player and collector. Nintendo is my main system and has been since I was a kid, but I also have an Xbox 360 and I'm planning on getting a PS4 in the near future. As far as games go The Legend of Zelda is probably my favorite series of all time. I have a pretty huge array of games in my collection spanning from the NES to the Wii U and everything in between along with a solid selection of Xbox titles.
Tattoos. I love them I think they are some of the purest forms of self-expression and they're beautiful because they have a special meaning to the who bears them. I only have one at the present time, but I have plans to get many more.
During what little downtime I have in my busy life, I usually balance between binge watching shows on Netflix, playing through whatever video game I'm currently hooked on, and going out with friends so I'm not a total shut-in recluse.
Otherwise I'm just working and enjoying my life one step at a time.
Working more than I should
Being kind of rad
Buying things I have absolutely no need for on ebay
Movies: I really like movies a lot haha. I like everything too from blockbuster hits to b-movies that look like they were filmed by an 8 year old in their garage.
Shows: I'm not huge on television, but I love cartoons. I grew up with cartoons and I love the stuff they're making now. Scooby Doo is my personal favorite it taught me logic and deductive reasoning along with the fact that most monsters are just creepy guys in costumes.
