Hi, my name is Roxie!
I’m a freshman from a northern suburb of Chicago, potentially studying Psychology, though I’m interested in Physics, Music, and Astronomy as well. I am in band here at Woo, specifically Marching Band and the Wooster Symphony Orchestra. I play french horn, and in my spare time I enjoy reading, drinking tea, hiking, metal-smithing , doing henna, and watching movies with friends.
My favorite authors vary, but include Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Tamora Pierce, and Christopher Moore. I love music, and mostly listen to Classical, Alternative, Viking and Pirate Metal, and some Classic Rock. My favorite composers/bands include but are not limited to: Mozart, Penderecki, Shostakovich, Tchaikowsky, Cold War Kids, Dirty Projectors, Turisas, and Alestorm. My favorite color is red, my favorite tea is Lavender Dreams (from Teavana), my favorite pie alternates between Key Lime, Pumpkin, Banana Creme, and Apple; my favorite weather is late-fall, my least favorite kind of gum is cinnamon, and I hope to at one point in my life conduct a full orchestra.
This past summer I volunteered at The Field Museum in Chicago, interned at a website, and worked in Chair Rental at Ravinia Festival. The best part about being so busy during the summer was that the time felt as if it were passing very quickly, and I felt like I got to leave for school fairly soon. The worst part was when I worked 17-hour days, which thankfully didn’t happen too often!
Let me know if you want to study together, or just want to talk!
