My name is Carlos Kelly, I am a veteran-student at SDSU, (just over 10 years). I fell in love with Literature as a young child, but lost that connection throughout high school and my early college years. After deciding that money shouldnít be the main factor in what kind of degree I pursued, I switched to English as a BA and rediscovered a passion for literature. My path in academia continued with an MA in American Lit., also here at SDSU. Currently, I am in a second Masters program, this time with focus on an MFA in Poetry. I donít just live for academia, Iím the drummer for a band, I teach, and I write. Working, going to school, making music, and playing/coaching basketball have been constants in my life ever since I could remember. I pursue my dreams, and although it can be time consuming, frustrating, daunting, and stressful, it is very possible. My goal is to help you succeed in the classroom and outside of it, please do not hesitate in contacting me, whether it be about this class or other classes or general information/perspective about the university life, grad school; I got your back.

Hi, my name is Adrian and I grew up in San Bernardino. I received my BA in English from UC Irvine. When I first began going to college, I was a computer science major, but I never really enjoyed my classes. I then realized that I enjoyed all of my English courses because of my love for reading. During my last year at UC Irvine, I was exposed to American modernist writers and I began to explore most of the literature that came out of this period. To this day, one of my favorite writers is William Faulkner. I want to eventually receive my PhD in literature and teach at the college level. I really like playing soccer, rock climbing, and cycling. I enjoy music from the 60s through 80s and I have been playing the guitar since I was 10 years old. I truly look forward to assisting you for this class. Please donít hesitate to contact me for help or if you just want to talk about post-punk (we will, of course, tie this back to the course material).
