My name is Lucas, but most people call me Lou. I’m 19 years old and I live in the metropolitan area of New York in a small town in New Jersey. I’m currently a second year student at a liberal arts school in upstate New York. I’m studying Spanish (in an attempt to become bilingual) and Political Science. I like writing, running, travel, politics, film and music I’m somewhat of a diletante and my taste is eclectic. This blog isn’t exclusive to any one thing and I like it that way. I take things as they come. I don’t believe in tradition and enjoy loud music, drinking, and adventure.
