So, those I know in the industry tell me that if I ever want to get into writing, editing, and even some teaching careers, it might be wise to set up a blog that I can point potential employers to so that they might get some idea of my writing style. Well, that is without having to slog through one of my academic papers. Not that they’re not interesting and wonderful, but perhaps my obsession with William Shakespeare in academic format is not the quickest and easiest way for those with stacks of applications to get to know me. Besides, the number one tip is always find what you’re good at, what makes you unique. Well, in the last year or so I have determined that my highest passion is making Shakespeare accessible to those who call him dull, old, or outdated. He’s not. He is simply amazing.
As for me, I am 26 and fairly happy with myself. I long ago embraced my quirks as endearing, having decided that they made me unique in a world that celebrates conformity. I’m generally covered in fur, thanks to my miniature zoo. I love just about any animal, excluding arachnids, and that love led me to work at the animal shelter for a few summers. That resulted in bringing my work home with me. Now, I have two dogs, three cats, and a turtle..
Currently, I am earning my Ph.D. in English Education while also working as a GA. I love my job and my program. I previously taught at a community college before moving away to pursue this next degree. I adore teaching, and I hope to become the best teacher I can possibly be.
So, please join me as I indulge my random observations in the world and various thoughts on a great man who is not just an old dead white guy.
