KEEL 1100: About Me
BREAKING NEWS: I am currently studying Literature and History of Art at the University of Edinburgh in Edinburgh (surprise, surprise), Scotland! Study abroad was definitely an important factor for me when I considered which undergrad college to attend, so let’s hope Cornell comes through for me.
In light of my overseas status, this blog will be more “Cornell Study Abroad life” than my usual “Cornell life” theme. Feel free to check out one of the other awesome Life on the Hill bloggers for updated info about livin’ in Ithaca if you so desire!
I’m a junior (c/o 2014) double-majoring in Art History and English with a creative writing minor. Reading and writing have been central to my life since I first picked up a pencil and a paperback, and I’m trying my best to set myself up for a career as a poet or novelist (or the next Joss Whedon).
For those who want more nonsensical details about me, check out my very first post for a detailed history of my academic existence. Of course, that won’t help you if you’re dying to discover my favorite movie (Fantastic Mr. Fox), literary genre (magical realism), band (The Moody Blues), color (the ocean), dude in Lord of the Rings (Faramir, obviously) or punctuation marks (parentheses). Sorry.
You might also want to see a list of the extracurriculars in which I’ve participated during the past four semesters.
In case you haven’t figured it out by now, this blog is part of Cornell University’s Life on the Hill project. Oh, and if you don’t understand the title, I suggest you brush up on your knowledge of the alma mater.
