I’m much less exciting than Allie because I’ve never lived in the jungles of South America – although I do live in Baltimore. It’s a different kind of jungle out there.
As far as books go, I generally read contemporary literature, but I’m trying to branch out more. I’m also working on a degree in English and Political Science at the moment, so I do a lot of reading for school. One of my roommates is a chemical engineer, and she came into my room once and counted how many books I had within arm’s reach of my chair and then said “You and I lead very different lives,” which is probably the most accurate thing anyone has ever said.
Interests other than reading include: dogs, musical theater, tea, boy bands, road trips, eating well, and bad puns. As you can maybe tell from the above picture, in which I hug my first car goodbye before trading it in, I have the unfortunate habit of growing extremely attached to inanimate objects. (I once wrote a poem about this car in a creative writing class. When we workshopped it, I’m pretty sure everyone was thinking “what is wrong with this girl”).
On the posts that Allie and I write together, you can probably tell which parts I wrote because those will be the parts with extreme exaggerations and not enough punctuation. Sorry.
