Introductory Blog Post

Well hello, I'm Ryan, I'm a first year and I'll be living in Riverview. I'm going for a degree in education, more specifically for history. I've lived on Madison's west side for my entire life. Madison is, let's be fair, no small city, but compared to Milwaukee it's really nothing. I haven't spent much time in Milwaukee in my life, but I headed down there last Friday to show my girlfriend the campus. We drove up to Riverview so I could show her the building and we spent half an hour navigating through the cities traffic closures. Needless to say it wasn't too hard it just threw us off our plans.

Well I suppose I should share a bit about my personality. I'm a quiet guy at first, but after I get used to people I can be pretty fun. I'm a big fan of films, my favorite director being Wes Anderson. I've seen the majority of films on the AFI Top 100, I don't care what some people say that doesn't mean I don't have a life. I'm also into music, like most people. I'm planning on seeing Pavement on the 14th at the Pabst and Broken Social Scene on the 3rd October. If you're heading to either show let me know and we can bus down together and hang out.

I'm an avid reader of comic books and graphic novels, currently knee-deep in Scott Pilgrim, especially DC Comics. I'm a fan of books as well, I went to the midnight release of Half-Blood Prince and the Deathly Hallows, both being awesome. My favorite book I read in high school was probably Richard Wright's Native Son.

I do get involved in politics as much as possible. Just remember, don't complain if you don't vote, and no I won't argue politics with you because neither side listens to the other side. Anyways I'm starting to ramble, and I'm running out of things to say. I'll wrap this up.

If you're interested in hanging out, talking about films or movies, or anything really, find me or contact me via Facebook. I'm looking forward to my future contributions on here.
