Like Precalculus and Newton's laws, Shakespeare's plays are among the most groaned-about high school topics, begetting the complaint: "When will I ever need to know about this in real life?" Turns out, pretty often.

Always follow the rules, whether it's a prompt, iambic pentameter or waiting 30 minutes after you eat. Then, suddenly, don't follow them at all. Break rules as many times without creating a trend.

Story
Introduction
I have just wrapped up my Master's in Library Science from Wayne State University.

I currently work full time as a digital content manager, but have been a library assistant, library technician, web editor, professor's assistant, residence hall desk manager, and page. I hope to become a librarian again soon.

In my free time, I am one of those types that likes to read and write. I like history, Japanese culture, cheese, and attending concerts.
