So…..you have reached my wordpress site and may want to know a little bit about me. I am currently a student at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, planning to major in English.
In my first semester I took classes that integrated together. Political Science was integrated in my Childhood through British and American Literature class. My writing 100 class and Childhood class basically fused together, because the topics of my papers and the class were one. My Black Women, Black Arts class and Political Science class fused on the topics of not only race, but housing, jobs, income, social mobility, and the so called ‘American Dream’.
I am learning so much in college and I am very interested in the subjects I take. I am not going to pretend like I just stepped out the car, breathed in the air of college and had control over my college life.
I literally panicked the first month, not first week, not first two, the first month. Well who am I kidding the first two months. I’m gonna quit lying, I am still panicking. I wasn’t home sick, because Detroit is only 45 minutes away. I panicked because I realized that I had no idea of what I was doing. I realized college was different and that I needed help.
I sought out tutoring from my program to help me with my homework. I went to office hours for my professors and GSI’s. I started being proactive in trying to find help for myself. And well…I have not been panicking as of late, but we’ll see how that plays out when I take my finals.
Now on to my rant about stuff that is more interesting.
I love to watch anime and read manga. My favorites are of course Attack on Titan-Shingeki No Kyojin , Bleach(please continue the anime), Death Parade, Code Geass, Black Butler – Kuroshitsuji, Claymore, Blue Exorcist, Guilty Crown, Fairy Tail, Samurai Champloo, Dragon Ball Z, among others. If you have any anime suggestions let me know!
Just like everyone else in the world I binge watch t.v. Since I am in college and disconnected from prime time television, I only watch a couple of shows such as Teen Wolf (Season 5b!!! I and the fandom are so excited) and Sleepy Hollow, because who doesn’t like the American Revolution combined with monsters and ancient evils.
Some of my favorite literary works are Passing, Kindred, Dracula, The Sound and The Fury, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values, The Odyssey, Hunger Games Trilogy, Harry Potter Series, Where The Mountain Meets the Moon, We Are Seven, The Ode, Lucy Gray, The Goblin Market, The Hobbit, The Outsiders, among others.
As you can tell I mostly watch and read series that are of the fantasy genre. This has to be one of my favorite genres and it also transcribes into my writing. I find writing this genre to be fun and complex, depending how you shape your fantasy world. You can create a whole world like Tolkien or integrate fantasy world with the real world and get Teen Wolf. I believe the reason I like the fantasy genre is because there are no bounds, no limits, to what is possible.
