About me

Industry Student
Location Salt Lake City, Utah, United States
Introduction About me...well, there's plenty to say of course, considering that I'm pretty much the coolest person that you'll ever meet :)... and I'm humble too. Let's see. Where to start? Well, I'm the oldest of 8 kids, 5 boys and 3 girls. I absolutely love to read, give me a book and I'm happy to trade my world for Hogwarts, 18th century London society or Communist Russia. I also love music and am quite skilled at playing my iPod (his name is Chuck). It's a talent that took years to perfect. I'm a history major at the University of Utah and I graduate this spring (hooray!!). One day, when I finally decide to be a grown up, I'll be a history professor and get to read all day long, while writing lots of books in my spare time.

How tall would you be if you had never cut your fingernails?

Precisely the same height as I am now because I bite my fingernails like it's my job.
