About me

Occupation Volluntary enslavement to the study of English Language and Literature
Location Bagend (my very own house with a green door), Midwest, United States
Introduction I started blogging in the fall of 2007 in the hopes of becoming attentive to voices other than my own. In the next few years my life ambitions changed, I was accepted into a PhD program, and I entered the Catholic Church. The need to practice the discipline of listening is as strong as ever.

Favorite Movies Anything you can eat with a fork and knife
Favorite Music I'm sure it's out there - and I wish I had time to discover it
Favorite Books [bursts into tears] I don't know... I might not have read it yet!
