What hobbies do you partake in?
Photography, camping, cooking, eating, sleeping, and the occasional juggling.
What’s your favorite book?
Its hard to pinpoint it down to just one, so here are some of my favorites:
His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman, Lillith’s Brood by Octavia Butler, Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, I Am Legend by Richard Matheson, Blindness by Jose Saramago, A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, Lord of the Flies by William Golding, Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, Watchmen by Alan Moore
Can I beat you in Guitar Hero?
Why do you write this blog?
I guess you could count it as one of my hobbies. It gives me a good place to write about things that I think about or things that I find funny and want to share with others.
So are you going to be one of those CSI’s, like on the TV show?
Possibly, but not as exaggerated as it is done on the shows. I’m interested in a number of different jobs once I graduate. I’m looking into being either a crime scene investigator, a firearms and toolmark examiner, a trace evidence examiner, a questioned document examiner, or a latent fingerprint examiner. I’m pretty much open to anything except DNA, toxicology, and pathology (mainly because I don’t have the education to do those jobs).
Jeez, how long is this FAQ?
Not long enough.
