My name is Halle Dirks. I'm a junior at the University of Arizona majoring in Creative Writing and Japanese, and I am quite passionate about both of those subjects. To me, passion is what makes a life worth living -- if someone doesn't do what makes them happy, it makes for a rather dull existence.
Let's see...I've been an honors student for my entire life, it seems, so I think I end up striving for heights others may not. Still, I don't think I'm some fire-breathing strict ruler-toting tutor or anything like that, so no worries on that score. I want to see students pursue what makes them happy, and if what makes them happy happens to align with the subjects I adore, I think we'll get along grand.
Slight personal details about me, I'm what one might call a "mystery geek," and I consider myself to be an amateur Sherlockian. I watch anime -- besides simply enjoying the medium, it makes for surprisingly good Japanese listening pracitce -- play video games, write when the fancy strikes, knit, make paper figurines...really, I have an eclectic assortment of hobbies. I'm also a part of the newly-minted UofA Creative Writing Club, and most weekends I get together with friends and play Betrayal at House on the Hill. I'm more of the introverted sort, but perhaps you could tell that by everything else you've just read?
I suppose I'm digressing at this point. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and for visiting my profile! I wish you the best in your future endeavors, whether or not they include me.
