My name is Amanda. I’m a 20-something soon-to-be seminarian in the DC area.

I am a loyal English major, and have an undying love for Virginia Woolf and the world of Sherlockian adaptations. My friends often call me with questions about how to find things in the library, and I’ve probably maxed out the book limit on my library card. Occasionally, I design websites, graphics and do other such online work. When not reading or studying, you’ll probably find me baking something delicious, hiking, or attempting to teach myself to paint.

This blog was started in 2008 when I was just a wee thing, and has grown to be an archive of my life journey. I hope that you’ll stick around and walk a while with me, and if you’re also a blogger, I look forward to doing the same for you!


Finally, no about-Amanda page is complete without a photo of this goofball, who is my favorite person in the world. Opal enjoys opening doors, cuddle sessions, and snoozing in the sunlight. I enjoy when I can sneak home for a day or so to hang with her!
