Welcome to my little corner of the world.
Allow me to introduce myself: My name is Torri B., and I am a young lady on the brink of my junior year of college. I will be moving to Nashville, Tennessee this fall to pursue my B.A. in English, with a minor in Creative Writing at Trevecca Nazarene University. My ultimate goal is to become an English Professor and a writer.
Okay, now that the stuffy information is out-of-the-way, I can tell you who I truly am. I live in two worlds, and one is a world of books. Please do not ask me who my favorite author is because I will not be able to choose and much stressful deliberation will ensue. But if you would like a comprehensive list of authors organized by era, sub-catorgized by genre, and in alphabetical order; that I can do. I love to read anything from Jane Austen to Virginia Woolf, from William Shakespeare to Marina Keegan, from Maya Angelou to Margaret Atwood; I read anything that evokes emotion. I love this world, as I have walked the grounds of Pemberly with Elizabeth Bennet. (Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen) I am exploring my essential self beside Edna Pontellier. (The Awakening by Kate Chopin) I have examined my heart of darkness and have been awoken to the darkness of humanity alongside Marlow. (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad) I have also been reminded of the goodness and kindness of humanity with Marina Keegan. (The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan) I have fallen in love with Mr. Rochester while simultaneously falling in love with myself, just like Jane (Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte). Moral of story (Ha, no pun intended): I have discovered myself through the lives of hundreds who have come before me, and I will continue to do so until the day that I die.
My other world is a world full of some of the best people humanity has to offer. A few of my favorite things are as follows:
- Spending time with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
- Books (See above paragraph if you have any questions concerning this)
- Spending time with my closest friends
- Gilmore Girls
- Spending time with my four nieces and two nephews
I feel like I forgot something…oh yeah! Coffee!
All in all, I am just a small-town girl with big dreams who is trying to find her place in this big ‘ole world. What can you expect from this blog? Updates on my life as a college student, pictures from my travels, and some of the thoughts that roll around in my head 24/7. Oh, and probably lots of sarcasm and cat-pictures.
Thanks for stopping by!
