I was in the process of updating my “About” page and I thought it would make an equally good post, something of a get-to-know-me post, if you will. Personally, when I really like a blog, I like to get to know the author(s) behind the writing and learn a little bit about them. So, in the slight hopes that you, dear reader, like my blog and find it interesting (if only relatively), here’s a little bit about me.

I feel like “These Are a Few of My Favourite Things” from The Sound of Music would be an appropriate song to play at this time. Well, that’s one way to get to know me. If you have any other questions about my interests, studies, or random quirks, please feel free to ask!
