If it weren't for English Majors...

Well, I did it! I passed my Comp Exams and I now have a Master's degree in English! I can not even begin to say how EXCITED I am! In honor of this achievement, I thought I would share with all of you what becomes of a person who has a Master's Degree in English. We English nerds, are a breed all of their own. So what exactly does that mean...

All areas of your house become "ideal" locations for stacks of paper 
(and yes, that is a cassette tape in the fourth picture - don't judge).  

 Books. EVERYWHERE. These are not for decoration, people. There are books stuffed in places that books shouldn't go. There are books stacked on top of books. There are books... you get the picture.

Entire shelfs are dedicated to certain authors because you feel like you have some special connection with them.  

Shakespeare Shelf
Jane Austen Shelf
J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis Shelf
Selective Complete Work's Shelf
You travel to places just so you can see literary/historical sites (England, France, Italy, and Greece)...

Guide Books from Travels
You get presents like this for your birthday - and get excited about it :)

All the decorations in your house become literature or book themed... 

Book Pages

Lord of the Rings Quote 
Lord of the Rings, again... 
Shakespeare Timeline
Well there you have it... the English major! I hope you enjoyed this silly little post about my life. The great thing is, this aspect of my life is my favorite part of me! I actually like being a nerd, and now I can take great pride in it because in May I will receive a little piece of paper that gives me that right! 

I would love to hear about the little quirks you all have that have developed out of something you love! Be it fashion, science, photography, or even something like running - we all have those little things that make us unique!


  1. You forgot the part about being anal about the condition of your books and their pages. Either way I'm so proud of you! Congrats!

    1. Haha! Dang, I forgot that one! It is so true though lol! But, thank you so much :)
