Your major(s): English and Philosophy

Are you fluent in any language(s) other than English? No

What are your career plans? Lacking.

What is your favorite book or author and why? A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. I think it's very relatable and very pretty. Sometimes I also think Joyce understood art in a way that we'll never be able to recover now, certainly in a way that some of our modern authors like Dave "Neckburn" Wallace couldn't.

What is your favorite word? Plenitude

Describe (in a short paragraph) a significant breakthrough in your development as a writer: As a bad writer, a major breakthrough was finding out that good writing has a lot more to do with just having good ideas and saying them clearly, rather than with thinking through the kind of pre-packaged styles of phrasing we typically associate with "good writing."
