I’m Andrew, an aspiring author and bibliophile, currently attending the University of California, Irvine for a bachelors degree in English Literature. I work at Barnes & Noble and love it.
Proudly a nerd, I spend my free time reading comics and novels, watching nerd-related YouTube videos or TV shows, hanging out with my amazing girlfriend, watching films, occasionally jotting down ideas for my many writing projects, or blogging about the things I love in this blog. And if I’m not dressing up at all, rest assured I’ll be wearing one of my many nerdy t-shirts.
As I’m currently working to update this blog visually/etc., and hoping to also get more regular with my blog posts, this About page is also a work-in-progress, so for now I’ll just leave a list of some of my favorites by medium. High on that list of goals is to create lists of my top 100 (books, movies, comics, etc.), as well as make “Creator Spotlight” where I highlight the works of my favorite creators. But alas, the plans of mice and men…
