- I’m 21 years old and a graduate of the University of Georgia in history and political science. I recently finished my senior thesis with a research grant from the Center of Undergraduate Research Opportunities on Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Counter-Enlightenment thought. I won the 2013 Pi Sigma Alpha essay contest in UGA’s School of Public and International Affairs on the question of whether American culture tends to emphasize being an individual over being a citizen. The essay can be read here.
I am a prolific writer. My friend and I frequently write essays in politics, philosophy, history, and world events.
Religiously, I am a Christian as a member of the Church of Christ at Oglethorpe. I do not believe that miracles occur in the modern day, that God “speaks” to individuals in the modern day except through the Bible, or that religious belief is a justification for political policy. In fact, I believe the two should be strictly separated.
That brings us to the next section: politics. I am a capitalist. That means I believe that the only reason any government should exist is the protection of the individual rights of its citizens. In essence, I believe that each man (or woman) is the owner of himself (or herself), and that to infringe on that ownership (i.e. to violate another’s rights) is the only thing the government has the authority to regulate. Anything more than that becomes a violation of man’s self-ownership in and of itself.Fluttershy is my favorite pony.
I find Catelyn Stark from Game of Thrones inexplicably attractive:
I’m also a fan of the Duchess of Cambridge.
My favorite movie score is from How to Train Your Dragon:
Political drama is, unsurprisingly, one of my favorite movie genres. Some of my favorite movies include Lincoln, Charlie Wilson’s War, Amazing Grace (2006), and The King’s Speech.
I think everyone should see the final Twilight movie (I went with my girlfriend -- she watches it for the lulz too) just to hear Kristen Stewart’s vampire sex talk. It’s side-splittingly hilarious.
I think Wreck-It Ralph deserved the Oscar for best animated film over Brave -- by a lot.
Even so, I love that Brave introduced me to Julie Fowlis. I want to use this song as a lullaby for future children -- it’s fantastic:
I’ll add more as I think of it, but you can also ask random questions and I may pick a few to field.
“Celestia wills it!”
Well that’s not too bad. How long do you get off?
You too -- how goes your holiday season?
I haven’t talked to you in a while, but I just wanted to say:
You now have information that someone else will soon ask you for.
Fly while you can.
Took me a while too. But got it.
Well. it was. so shut up and take my green thumb.
Did anyone else think that Snowflake was gonna help Scoot fly when the butterfly reappeared later in the episode?
Okay, so Flutters is going to get it, but who is the who who will be giving it?
And this, gentlemen, is how nightmares are made.
I envy thee, ye who hath not sullied thine eyes in the darker corners of the Internet.
Of all things, remembereth this: Safe Search is they greatest friend.
That’s right, lads. You’re all Christmas donkeys, now.
Happy holidays. Fa-la-la-la-laa, La-la-la-a…
“Non-related” meaning not sharing genetic material,
not “non-related” meaning it has nothing to do with the gallery.
Not sure if serious,
or can’t remember season 3.
“That’s right. I’m best pone. You mad?”
Caro is the one who found it, but refused to post it on here herself.
I’ll ask her in the morning and see if I can get it up here. haha
