About Me

About Me

I have eclectic tastes. I’m a math major minoring in gender studies interested in spoken word, education policy, and ASL. I watch a lot of TV, read a lot of books, and watch a lot of movies (and read a lot of AutoStraddle, natch). I love meeting people.

Favorite Quotes

“My name is Max. I want to borrow your t-shirts and wake you up when I have bad dreams. Burst into a smile when we’re fighting because you’re too adorable. Pinch your butt when you’re walking up the stairs in front of me. My name is Max. Make up a name that only you call me. Make it something you’d be embarrassed to call me accidentally in public. Fall in love with me.” –Go Fish

“Otherwise my advice is: Stand firm for what you believe in, until and unless experience proves you wrong. Remember, when the emperor looks naked, the emperor is naked. The truth and a lie are not sort of the same thing. And there is no aspect, no facet, no moment of life that can’t be improved with pizza. Thank you.” –Daria
