Michelle is a twenty-something writer and student double majoring in English and American Studies. When she was six years old, her parents were too busy to read Harry Potter to her all day, so she started reading them herself and never looked back. Film, television, and literature all compete for her love and attention, but the truth is that any form of storytelling captivates her completely. She finds something to enjoy about almost everything, but Joyce’s “Ulysses,” “The X Files,” “The Brothers Bloom,” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” are her current favorites. Once, she listened to Elliott Smith’s “Either/Or” on repeat approximately two hundred times before picking another album to listen to while driving. Currently, she is planning the perfect murder: her own, by way of thesis projects. She believes that simple, thoughtful cooking makes the most beautiful food and that you don’t need a lot of money to have fun. No matter how busy life gets, she always finds a way to pay attention to the things that deserve it most. Her blog can be found at www.scotlandfiles.wordpress.com, so stop by and say howdy! Or whatever greeting you prefer.
