"Jan is a scholar of the human psyche who's so high on imaginary drugs that he experiences severe symptoms of imaginary withdrawal every few seconds."

The above line was quoted directly from my Twitter profile (@innominejan). Ah har har har.

I am a college student enrolled in the AB Psychology program of my school, and so far I am enjoying it. I am a lover of the arts, literature being one of my first loves (the others being theatre and music). I am hoping to be a published writer before I graduate.

 

Highly suggested reads

I will now be compiling a list of works that I come across in Booksie that I believe everyone should read (or in one case, listen to). I will try to update this as often as I can to get the most number of great writing to the most number of people. :)
