One thing Davidson has taught me is that I am neither as accomplished a writer nor as avid a reader as I once believed.
This realization has encouraged me to abandon pretense and defense mechanisms in favor of appreciating authenticity in a variety of forms and experiences, no matter how mundane.
This class attracted me as an escape from the confines of my comfort zone. I look forward to the unorthodox, inter-medium works we will be reading. I have always admired the blending of image and text that characterizes avant-garde movements like Dada from a distance, but never studied or attempted to replicate it.
As far as my other interests go, I enjoy brainstorming and structuring literary works. I have started countless works of fiction and completed none. Hopefully, trying new styles and cross-genre methods will make me a freer, more successful writer. Drawing is another hobby of mine. I would like to write and illustrate something someday. I have a lot of notes and sketches, but few drafts. Maybe you can relate.
