About Me

Hi! I'm Bridget and I'm a senior at NC State. I'm an English major with a concentration in linguistics, but it took a while to get here; I was actually accepted into NCSU for Textiles, but I quickly swicthed to English. From there, I went through almost every English concentration possible before linguistics was introduced as a concentration, and here I am!

  1. Video Games: I play on both Xbox and PC. I mostly play FPS games like Overwatch and Destiny 2, but I also love horror/survival games such as the Resident Evil franchise.
  2. Baking and Cooking: I actually planned to attend culinary school before deciding on an English degree because I've always loved cooking and baking! My favorite things to bake are apple fritters and pain au chocolat from scratch.
  3. Skatebording: I got my first skateabord almost a year ago and I regularly skate around my apartment complex with one of my roommates!
  4. Manga and Anime: My all-time favorite anime is Hunter x Hunter, but Banana Fish is a close second. Some anime I've been watching recently include Jujutsu Kaisen, Demon Slayer, Sk8 the Infinity, and Horimiya. Also, my favorite manga I've read lately is Jujutsu Kaisen by Gege Akutami.

Interest in Rhetoric and Design

I have some experience in rhetoric because of my sociolinguistic background, but I'm honestly not very interested in pursuing the subject past my college courses on it. I'm much more interested in the other aspects of linguistics than sociolinguistics, which rhetoric falls under. However, I am still open to the idea of examining rhetoric as a component of design and the digital world, rather than the classical rhetoric I'm accustomed to.

Career Aspirations

As for future career aspirations, I'd like to become an editor, preferably of fiction literature. I was a copy editor for NCSU's student newspaper Technician for two years which was a good opportunity for me to confirm my idea of that career. I'd rather be an editor of fiction than news, and I'd also love to do freelance work instead of through a publishing firm, but I also realize I have to start somewhere!
