The next time someone asks, "What are you majoring in?" ... tell them, "Enchantment." English. Religion. Philosophy. These were the hallmarks of my wide-eyed undergraduate career at Whitworth University. I would have explored other majors as well, but academic inquiry is expensive: #studentloans. Although English was my first love, I wanted theology and the pantheon of great thinkers to inform my study of literature as well.
