I am a college student majoring in history (concentrating in Ancient History) and classics with emphasis in latin. I'll be going to grad school for Ancient History in the fall. I figure skate and skate on a synchronized skating team. I only write in cursive
and I am always reading quotations. I want to learn as many languages as I can. I love to wander around and think better when walking (it's one of my favorite ways to ground wild emotions), but I love sitting in a cozy coffeshop with a book and a coffee (preferably
black) or tea (preferably rooibos) or of course working in one (gotta love the awesome regulars). My favorite things to buy (after books) are cute socks and sweatshirts. I love to travel, write letters and to cook. I also love Winston Churchill, great figures
of the American Revolution, politics, anything European, and french-speaking Canada.
