I have been told that I haven't made a post in a while. With all the grading I have been doing lately, my brain has not been very active or random in the evening.
The students group I am an adviser for is currently looking for new officers. As we have been conducting interviews, one of the fun questions that has been asked is "What superhero (or fictional character) would you be and why?" So, that is my question to you.
For my answer, I think that I would like to be Elizabeth Bennet (from Pride and Prejudice). She is one of the original independent heroines in fiction who is not afraid to buck tradition and go against the expectations of society. Unlike some of the heroines today, though, she does not completely disregard convention. She is still interested in marriage, but she wants to marry for love and she wants to be able to respect her husband.
As far as a superhero goes, the mom in the movie Incredibles would be near the top of my list. Her flexibility would come in very handy.
