And she's an academic. Questions?
Because this meme rubs me the wrong way. And seeing as “Idiot Nerd Girl” quickly got revamped, I figured I’d give “Friend Zone Fiona” a shot.
Quickmeme was used to make this, but I couldn’t figure out how to make the links work. Click the picture to go there.
Here are your weapons, soldiers. Go forth and subvert this nonsense.

An idiot — It’s up to you.”
That’s the sort of thing princes always say,

It really depends on what you want from the school/your major. I wanted to be a theatre major and the department was reeling from the death of the head of it six months prior to my arrival. Of course, there was a lot of scrambling and I didn’t feel that staying there while they figured that out was worth my time. I heard from another student who had graduated years before that that the department was never completely together and organized either.
That said, the theatre professors I had there were both great and I learned a lot from them. I had trouble tapping into the—at the time—somewhat cliquey nature of the department as well and I didn’t feel that they were ever completely open to those who really didn’t want to act as opposed to actors-playwrights/directors/techies/etc.
Also, the Russian literature classes I took there changed my life. But I wouldn’t have been able to major in that either since Russian language/lit had been relegated to a minor. I would have wound up a religious studies major most likely, which is interesting but definitely not what I wanted to study for four years.
As I said, it all depends on what you want from a school. Maybe things have changed since I was there from 2007/8, so I can’t speak to how it is now. The proximity to New York and the Shakespeare Theatre being right there were both great aspects, as well. I just wanted to be in the city studying theatre rather than be in Madison and only occasionally see non-student theatre.
A line from Acrobat by U2.
The phrase, “Illegitimi non carborundum” actually originates from World War II. Fiona loves history and U2 and isn’t ashamed. (Also, the lyric is, “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.”)
Kirsty Mitchell’s late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen’s death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography.
She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. The photographic series began as a small summer project but grew into an inspirational creative journey.
‘Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,’ said the artist. (read the rest here).
