I studied British Romantic poetry for the better part of a decade--well, as best I could at UF--but school didn't stop me from getting an education. I'm a big fan of philosophy and science lit. I also have a slow-burning passion for economics and mathematics. Oh, and kitchen sinks.
Aside from word-related stuff, I chill with my dog, take walks, and plot the salvation or enslavement of the human race. (It’s still sort of up in the air.) I make time for games that involve cards or boards or dice (or all three). It’s not nerdy; you’re just boring.
And, just to be honest, I don't smoke cigarettes, but I do vape. Felt like I should mention that since I'm listed as a nonsmoker.
I'm also an aspiring novelist--but who isn't, huh? Am I right?
