My full name is Emily Jane Tennant. I am currently 21 years of age (although most people refuse to believe that until I offer proof). I am a computer science student at Hope College in Holland, MI. However, I have a wide variety of intellectual interests as a math and spanish minor, as well as being a closet humanities lover. That's why I go to a small, liberal arts college. I love Hope. In the fall, I will be a senior. And the next year...who knows?
You can get ahold of me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This web page is actually the first I've every really constructed by hand. So you
are the benefactor of my learning-on-the-fly. As a certified non-computer-geek, you may wonder
why I chose this major. Well, here goes:
A. I'm a practical person ($).
B. I'm a logical thinker.
C. I like to solve puzzles.
So that's what put me on my current path. I must admit that there is a seldom a dull moment in class, and it's cool to know that I'm in a field where I will never stop learning new things. Well, that, and there's nothing like the feeling when your code finally starts to work!
My favorite color of all-time has to be blue. I have 3 older siblings, and now 2 sister-in-laws, 1 brother-in-law, and one nephew as well. Although I have been known to succumb to the couch potato temptation and spend the weekend watching TV, I love to be outdoors. I enjoy hiking, backpacking, jogging, biking, swimming and just meandering. I also love a good book, so rainy days are okay, as well. I would rather be cold than hot, so I'm not sure I'm ready to commit to this North Carolina climate. I think snow is one of the most beautiful things in the world, just behind mountains. I drive a 2-door Ford Tempo with a stick shift and a speedometer that only goes up to 85. And at Hope, I live in a house named "Beeuwkes Cottage" with 5 other wonderful, crazy women (yes, that rhymes with mucus - don't look at me, I didn't pick it!). Click here to see a picture of the inside of our beautiful cottage. No that's not me or my housemates in the picture - fooled you, didn't I?
Here is the lovely Tennant family (minus my sister-in-law Cheryl, who wasn't a part of the family yet) at my brother Benjamin's wedding in July 2000. We don't all get together very often. :)
This is one of my host sister and I at a Chilean "asado" (check out the meat!) just before I finished my semester studying in Santiago, Chile (June 2001). Notice the variations in hair length -- proof of my views on hair-styling.
So, you're still reading. You must really want to know, "Who is Emily Tennant?"
