About Bec Santos

3rd year, Arts

Hello, I'm Bec and I'm a 3rd Year Arts student with a major in English. I thought I would do English at uni because reading and writing never feels like work. Sometimes, I wonder if I know too many words. I don’t know which ones to pick so I choose them all and my turn of phrase is occasionally too florid. To curb this tendency I find myself rehearsing conversations in my head. This habit only becomes noticeable when I practice the accompanying gesticulation. While this makes me appear nervous and odd on public transport, when I need to speak to someone, things usually come out just beautifully. I also smell books.
