Flagler Portraits-6

1. Year, major(s)/minor(s), plans after you graduate:

I’m in my fifth year. I’m majoring in English, minoring in Creative Writing.  My biggest goal after graduation is getting a comic script published.  I’m not sure how long it will take to get to that point, but I’m willing to experience whatever I need to in order to make publication a possibility.

2. What is the last book you read for fun?

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.

3. Coffee or tea?

At this point in my life, coffee is the only real way to go.

4. If you could be any literary character for a day, who would you be and why?

f I could be any literary character for a day it would have to be Siddhartha from Hermann Hesse’s Siddhartha.  I feel like reaching enlightenment would be the best way to spend a day.

5. Quote to live by:

I must not fear.  Fear is the mind-killer.  Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.  I will face my fear.  I will permit it to pass over me and through me.  And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.  Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.  Only I will remain.” — Frank Herbert’s Dune
