My name is Nathan. I'm an English major who's still trying to distinguish the difference between loving to read and write and loving the idea of reading and writing. I dove into college without holding my breath and am still learning to swim.
You can find me being generally unremarkable in other forms of social media here:
Here’s to surviving show week while also getting A’s on both of the papers I had to write during the wonderful mess of it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i hope one day i can put the quote ‘some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thurst upon ‘em’ on my wall as a teacher and then read twelfth night at the end of the year and once we get to malvolio’s monologue i’ll just point to it and say, ‘that’s a dick joke. i’ve had a dick joke on my wall this whole year and you didn’t know. that’ll teach you about shakespeare.’
Bravery isn’t fleeing. It’s kissing the teeth of something you know could eat you in an instant. How stupid it is to run away from something that might be the greatest thing that you’ve ever encountered just because you are too afraid that it might not work out. Taking chances is how we grow. It’s how we understand ourselves.
I’m almost aggressively excited about Twelfth Night this weekend. This cast has really pulled me through a field of rough patches, and I’m immensely grateful and entirely thrilled for the show. It’s gonna be gr8. Gr9. Gr1738.
