About the Squid Leader

I am working on a master’s in English literature at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas.

I love: reading and writing (obviously), both veiwing and creating art (though I’m not very good), red wine, chocolate (oh God, now I’m starting to sound like I’m doing a match.com profile) Indie music, and even more obviously, movies.

I hate: pickles and Ke$ha, not in that order

I want: TO RULE THE WORLD! No, in all seriousness, I want to be able to get through grad school without any emotional break downs.

Favorite book: The Handmaid’s Tale

Favorite writer: Margaret Atwood

Favorite movie: American Beauty

Favorite director: Clint Eastwood

Favorite band: Radical Face

Favorite foreign accent on a guy: Irish, and if he wears a kilt, it’s even better

Favorite food: A good dish of manicotti

Honestly, one of the reasons I started this blog was because I was just finishing up a thesis two years ago that I had been working on for almost a year. When you’ve completed something that takes so much work, it’s like a vacuum closes in on your soul, and you think “Well, what the hell do I do now?” This blog was my answer, and I’ve really been enjoying it.
