My name is Nicholas Victor. It's a long road from my home in Austin, Texas to my current spot of habitation in Ely, Minnesota, which is why I chose to fly. But seriously, there is a great distance between the two states, not just geographically, but culturally as well (I'll spare you the details, but for any southerners reading this, a hot dish is basically a casserole). A little more about myself: I enjoy running, biking, rock climbing, kayaking, and a host of other outdoor activities. I am currently attending the University of Texas at Austin where I hope to earn my English degree in the next two years.
