An Intro to Libby

Hello! My name is Libby Skalisky and I am a senior Humanities major. I specialize in English, Human Development, and DTC. I have already tried to take this class, but because of personal extenuating circumstances I had to withdraw. The most I remember about it is liking it a whole lot! Stories and storytelling in general is an art. It is hard to master, but I guess that’s why we’re all taking this class.

I am personally more partial to fictional stories because of the absolute out of this world stuff that can happen, but I am down for a little realistic story every now and then. I enjoy fantasy, comedy, romance, and animation. I grew up reading a lot of manga and books, as well as watching a lot of film and TV shows. My entire life has been based on what I could consume next, honestly. Even now, I am writing this and wanting to get back to binging a TV show I started a couple days ago, but alas.

I like stories, I like trying to write them. I do write fanfiction, but it’s never in a professional sense. I personally think I am a better poet than any type of storyteller, but that is why I want to see this class through until the end, to harness whatever stories I end up creating and liking them in the end. So, you know, don’t laugh at whatever silly stuff I come up with!

Here are some of my favorite stories in different media:

Movies: Baby Driver, Everything Everywhere All at Once

TV Shows: Bobs Burgers, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Books: The Child Thief  by Brom, The Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins
