I’m a tiny girl who hails from the very glamorous hinterlands of Ohio. One day I hope to be a witchy superhero, but in the meantime I’m a law and social work student studying immigration and queer issues.
The world is a big place and I feel constantly and gleefully overwhelmed by how much I don’t know about it. I learn best by getting my hands dirty, and so DIY is my learning method of choice. I like recipes, but I like understanding why better, so you’ll find lots of posts about my take on pop science, math, linguistics, and history on Mamoot.
Why Mamoot? Well, I’m a Wooley, which sounds like woolly, which describes a mammoth, which is “mamut” in Spanish, which was the name of a museum I used to live next to, which everyone constantly mispronounced as “ma mutt,” and so which is easier to write as mamoot.
When I’m not reading overpriced casebooks or doing crafts, I’m honing my strengths (primarily a mean martelo kick, an impressive knowledge of Harry Potter, and my imagined status as reigning champion of DuoLingo) and trying to handle my weaknesses (Chick-fil-a, my triceps, girls in glasses, and the subjunctive mood in any language).
