I'm currently a graduate student at Brandeis University in the doctoral program in History. I did my undergraduate at Wisconsin, and I'm a huge Badger fan! I'm originally from the Midwest, so if you're looking for some down-to-earth friendliness, or if you really do want to know if the Midwest is indeed as flat as a pancake, I can provide that for you. I like to cook when I get the opportunity, and am decidedly not a vegetarian. I like to laugh and I like to crack wise if you don't laugh, you don't live. While I like to go out and do things, the majority of my time is spent reading and writing, like any good grad student. I'm a movie junkie, and I'll watch almost anything, good, bad, or cheesy. Interested? Let me know. The internet's not very good at subtlety.
