Writing these “About Me” pages are always hard, which is odd because I love writing, but I’ll give it a go.
First of all, I’m T.K. – a nickname one of my grandmothers used to call me when I was a toddler, and I decided to use it here.
I’ve always been a reader, to the point where it used to annoy my parents because I’d rather have my nose in a book than interact with kids my age (think Brick from The Middle). I did not read as much in the first few years of my undergrad degree, but I slowly picked it back up and just haven’t stopped.
I’m a total nerd for anything Marvel (except Captain Marvel… go figure). I tend to be more sarcastic than serious in my day-to-day life and my sarcasm has reached a point where people do not know if I’m serious or not.
Aside from reading, I love photography and more recently I’m coming to appreciate book photography on Instagram. I’m looking to grow my own account with photos of my babies (books). I’m also a writer, though unpublished. The only experience I really have with writing and getting feedback is through fanfiction. I do have original stories I write, but nothing that I have ever shown anyone other than my best friend.
I have been working in the library field for five years now and have my Master’s in Library and Information Science. Some of the things I’ve seen in my job are so close to what I experienced in retail that I wonder why I love my job… but the fact is, I do. Each day is different and I go into work never knowing what do expect. It’s pretty great, actually.
Yeah, that’s me.
