“I made practice runs down to skid row to get ready for my future.”
Kendra Eckert is someone who wants to do what she wants when she wants. With a passion for slaying zombies in Call of Duty and milk, she was drawn to MUSH by her interest in publication. She loves EI-Pop, House on the Leaves, Rumble Fish. She admires photographer Jeff Wall and her high school friend Niki, as well as her family. Her self-proclaimed spirit animal is either the Otter or the Snow Leopard. Fire is her element of choice, ironic considering one of her spirit choices lives in the water, and the other in snow.
She favors magic over technology, and thinks cowboys are better than pirates or ninjas.
“I can’t fill my bookshelf with Nooks!”
Gunning for an English and Business-based major, Jamie Johns has a life goal to leave something beautiful for the world to enjoy. Her inspiration is driven by her feelings, by what makes her heart leap to her throat and forces her brain to a screeching halt. Perhaps this is what gives her her love to write, and to see what publishers have to go through to get pieces out. That’s what landed her here at MUSH, after all.
She enjoys films like Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children and Kiki’s Delivery Service. She reads from authors Kanoko Sakurakoji, Rumiko Takahashi, and other folks with Japanese names.
Her spirit animal: the cunning Wolf, her element: flexible Water, her pick in the pirate/ninja/cowboy debate: the stealthy Ninja.
She can never say no, but she can write it.
This quote-less fellow listens to classical music and Imogen Heap to get inspiration. He likes Coraline, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Paper Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and other stuff. Obviously.
Oh, and his favorite childhood story is Jack and the Beanstalk.
You can’t look back, only forward and you can’t change the past, only the future. Instead of just looking back at who you were and who you wanted to be, look at who you are today, look ahead and see tomorrow. Live life and create the “you” that you want to become…the “you” with those dreams and the love for something that makes “you” happy …you are the one who can conquer anything and succeed, if “you” just believe. -Amanda Drake
A passion for writing drew this editor/contributor to MUSH. She admires an English teacher named Mr. Cepress, loves coffee and tie-dye.
Her opinion on the pirate/ninja/cowboy debate is as of that date unknown.
“At the moment we can’t afford to go to other planets. We don’t have the ships to take us there. There may be other people out there (I don’t have any opinions about Life Out There, I just don’t know) but it’s nice to think that one could, even here and now, be whisked away just by hitchhiking.”
-Neil Gaiman, the Salmon of Doubt.
This contributor/editor fancies himself as something peculiar. Born with a passion for writing, reading, and watching funny films with zombies, he admires anyone who is open minded and can have strong opinions without being disrespectful to those who disagree. He frequently pretends to be both of those things.
He enjoys movies like Zombieland and Casablanca, books like The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and To Kill a Mockingbird, video games like Portal 2 and Paper Mario, as well as other things that seem to contradict themselves in terms of taste. He is also a brony, a trekkie, a Baker Street Irregular wannabe, and all sorts of other geek things.
His spirit animal is hibernating in his basement, his element is Air, and believes pirates can whoop cowboys and ninjas.
English and photography are in Nicole Sterling’s sights for Major. Her life goal is to make a difference. In her off time, she likes to read books by Ken Follet, listen to Paramore and Modest Mouse, and watch movies like Sherlock Holmes and Despicable Me.
She gets her caffeine fix with coffee, and is grounded to her element of Earth.
“Don’t think harder, think smarter”
Like Evan Travis but +1.
Kinesiology is the major of choice for Chelsea Hahn, who plans on transferring to the University of Eau-Claire. Little is known about her, except for the following. She gets her caffeine fix from coffee, which fuels her activities of swimming laps, ballroom dancing in the middle of the grocery store with her boyfriend, and most rigorously watching television.
She can be found at the Mosinee Community Pool as the Aquatic Manager, and at Victoria’s Secret as a Salesperson.
