1) Who are you and where are you?
I'm an undergraduate student at Princeton University, NJ. When people ask me where I go to school, my standard response is "Uh, in New Jersey."
2) What do you do for work?
Besides school, I work at my university's LGBT Center and write as a freelance journalist for hyper-local publications. Also I blog. (But who doesn't nowadays?)
3) What do you do for fun?
When I have time for fun, I gather up my guy friends and we watch BBC Sherlock. Then we proceed to make snarky comments at each other as if we were Sherlock Holmes and the world was Watson/everyone else.
4) Tell me something about your bookshelves.
Surprisingly, only three of these books have been "assigned reading" from a class. As an English major, most of my books for school are piled on my desk, which is a photo for another blog. The rest of these books represent a pretty darn good cross-section of my pleasure reading interests: Sex/sexual minorities, Southeast Asia, dystopias, and satirical humor. Also, under my digital camera is a pocket US Constitution.
5) Tell me something about ONE of the books on your shelf.
The most embarrassing thing is that the two bad vampire romance novels, Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series aka the books that inspired True Blood, were given to me by a friend. I read the first page of Dead Until Dark, and nearly puked at the narrator's self description. I have left them there, wondering if I ever want to try again.
