University of Wisconsin, La Crosse
I have a confession to make: I am completely and utterly addicted to the internet. My version of social networking consists of tweeting to constantly make sure I always know what’s happening in the ever-changing, fast-paced world of politics (and informing apolitical friends along the way.) You can typically find me lurking with my laptop in laundry rooms, coffee shops, or libraries in La Crosse, WI, seven months out of the year. When studying, I adore 50s/60s music, but I also love Matt Nathanson: he has been one of my favorite singer/songwriters since I first discovered him advertised on the back of milk cartons at my high school. I also love my ukulele named Harold. My dream is to work one day soon in Washington D.C., although I have yet to finalize my career goals. I like to think of the future as a malleable object—there are so many possibilities, that I’d hate to restrict myself to one set course. On a final note, I believe in God and my country, but I don’t believe predestination, progressivism, or class warfare.
