Hello, I’m Karissa. I’m a second year university student majoring in English. People say I’m quirky but classy, caring and eccentric.
I love to read, play dutch blitz, make obnoxious videos, and one day I’d love to find a job that consists of writing everyday.
My favourite poet is e.e. cummings who once said,
“As for expressing nobody-but-yourself in words, that means working just a little harder than anybody who isn’t a poet can possibly imagine. Why?
Because nothing is quite as easy as using words like somebody else. We all of us do exactly this nearly all of the time – and whenever we do it, we are not poets.
If, at the end of your first ten or fifteen years of fighting and working and feeling, you find you’ve written one line of one poem, you’ll be very lucky indeed.”
(- e.e. cummings)
