Class of 2018
Major — English and Psychology
Hometown — Portland, Ore.
Hey! I'm from Portland, Oregon, and yes, I have seen Portlandia. I'm an English/Psych double major, but I self-identify as a jack of all artistic trades (except drawing; I'm terrible at drawing). So basically anything that isn't, y'know, "art" art is something that I enjoy and have done for a long time. I spend a lot of my free time thinking up potential diversions to use when passing someone on Middle Path who looks like they might wish to engage in small-talk. I write a lot of really scary, dark horror poetry and short stories, I don't go out on weekends, my hair has been an unnatural color since I was 10 years old, and I'm not even a goth punk rocker. What are the odds?
At the end of high school, all that my friends were worried about (besides figuring out how to best waste their summer vacation) were relationships and how to manage them going in to college. As someone who’s had plenty of experience in managing long-distance relationships, I thought I’d inject a little more hope into the situation!
