Ahhh. The joy of acceptance... Of being told (by someone other than one's own arrogance and ego) that you are RIGHT. That's right, kiddies. Yours truly was accepted for a peer-reviewed panel at CCCC. I'm one of 15%. That includes tenured profs.
I grew up all over Appalachia, mostly Tennessee and West Virginia. I've been a voracious reader since I learned how, also an off and on pianist since I was five (currently off - moving a piano to NC was too expensive). I received my MA in American Literature and Theory in 2005, and I'm currently working on a Ph.D. in Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media at NC State.
I was married to my best friend from college in July, 2004. She gave birth to our beautiful daughter on May 28, 2006, at 2:27 a.m.
