Blake Stephens

Year, Major(s)/Minor(s):

Senior (graduating in December); liberal arts major, with a main focus in philosophy, and a smaller focus in English and creative writing.

What’s the last book you read for fun?

Currently reading The Long Mars, by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter; third book in the Long Earth series. Last book before that was, I believe, Skin Game, by Jim Butcher; umpteenth book in the Dresden Files series.

Coffee or tea?

I don’t drink either.

If you could be any literary character, who would you be, and why?

Most of my favorite characters have highly stressful lives, but I think I’d go with Tavi from Jim Butcher’s Codex Alera series.

 Quote to live by:

“People have been talking about this stuff for millennia before I showed up and they haven’t reached a consensus yet. I really don’t think I’m smarter than every theology major who has ever lived.” -Jamie Halligan IV, Leftover Soup

Plans after graduation:

Undecided.
