I am ill-qualified to recommend myself to strangers, but here goes: Texas guy transplanted to Auburn to get my PhD in English. I love to think about how culture shapes who we are and how we think. I've always wanted to work in education and I'm excited that I'm taking the (long) last step toward that.
My goal after graduating is to teach college English, preferably at a community college or a little 4-year school. Nothing fancy, just enough to make a difference in my students' lives.
When I'm not working in the grad school mines I like to cook, travel, and read.
I'm left-wing as hell and that makes living in 'Bama interesting.
I should probably have the number 420 in here somewhere if I'm gonna be honest, so there ya go, 420.
I also love movies and TV based on books. Sometimes they really are better. Kinda obsessed with Game of Thrones. I'm a fan of smart comedies, too--Arrested Development, Community, 30 Rock, Parks & Rec, Brooklyn Nine-Nine (my newest favorite)--and British comedy, especially Mitchell and Webb and Peep Show.
Music-wise: Mumford and Sons, Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, Postal Service, that sort of thing. Also, the Avett Brothers. If you don't know the Avett Brothers, get off of OKCupid and go listen to the Avett Brothers now, love can wait. Also LMFAO but that should go without saying.
Italian is my favorite, but I like most kinds of food. Eating out is one of my favorite pastimes, but lately I've started cooking, too, and that's going pretty good so far.
Food (k, nobody can do without food, but I mean good food).
You're open-minded, independent, and feminist. You know what an Oxford comma is, love it, and use it.
