The life of a sleepy guy
Salutations! My name is Darrien, and I just finished up my sophomore year at IUPUI. I am studying Secondary Social Studies Education with a minor in psychology to potentially add that concentration to my license. I like to say that history is my second love behind Beyonce, because I've always been interested in the subject, as well as various other social sciences. I'm taking a class this upcoming Fall semester on early Britain and I freaked out when I saw the course offering, if that gives you an idea of how excited I am. One of my main goals coming into college was to study abroad, and I am hoping to do my student teaching abroad. I graduated from North Central High School two short years ago. I am a student coordinator with OTEAM as well a mentor for First-Year Seminars, and I absolutely love it. We actually started training for this summer's orientations, so saying that I'm tired is a bit of an understatement. I have three sisters, with the youngest being a little over a year old, so that's fun. Last summer, one of my sisters got me a pet turtle named Richard, and he is the best little homie I could ask for.
With the little free time that I have, I love to read, watch TV shows or movies, eat, and of course, nap. I am currently watching Game of Thrones, and re-watching the BBC series Doctor Who (Matt Smith forever). While on the topic of nerdy stuff, I also love Star Wars, Marvel comics, and a plethora of other things, but most of all, Harry Potter. I have a Harry Potter tattoo on my forearm, and I'm currently plotting on irresponsibly spending money on more tattoos. I enjoy almost all sports, but the world's game (soccer) is my personal favorite. My favorite club is Manchester United, so if you're a fan of that other club from Manchester or Liverpool, we may need to have a frank conversation. I don't know how well I conveyed this through text, but I'm a pretty easy-going person and try to make lots of bad jokes. I like lots of things, and I'm open to trying to trying just about anything that won't cause serious bodily harm. So, if you like stuff and like to laugh, there's a high probability that we could be homies. I look forward to learning about teaching and technology with you all this summer!
