My profile pic is me (dark hair) with my roommate at a local art show.
I am a graduate student earning my PhD in English literature at UC Santa Barbara. I hope to finish next year! I am from California originally, but have lived in Boston and Dublin, and I travel frequently to Ireland because I study Irish poetry. I love visiting new places and really getting to know the neighborhood, so I try to stay with friends, in B and Bs, or with airbnb in order to have a less anonymous, more non-hotel/resort experience.
I spend my time in Santa Barbara teaching at UCSB, tutoring students, walking around town with my boyfriend, biking, doing yoga, cooking, sewing, wandering around my favorite site, Etsy, and reading way too many blogs. Occasionally I even go to the beach. Or write my dissertation.
