About Me

About Me

Frequent AS reader, less frequent AS commenter. But working on changing that.
I can read and write, and one day soon I will have a bachelor’s degree to prove it.
I play roller derby on a new-ish league, the Cornfed Derby Dames.
I am small and sassy.

Favorite Quotes

I tried the key in all the doors, even though he said he didn’t recognize it. It’s not that I didn’t trust him, because I did. It’s that at the end of my search I wanted to be able to say, I don’t know how I could have tried harder.
–Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Jonathan Safran Foer

“What is the meaning of life? That was all – a simple question; one that tended to close in on one with years, the great revelation had never come. The great revelation perhaps never did come. Instead, there were little daily miracles, illuminations, matches struck unexpectedly in the dark.”
–To the Lighthouse, Virginia Woolf
