Laura Lynn Neil... the name I was given after I was born in Champaign, Illinois on February 24th, 1970. My parents tell me that I was nearly named Gina, for some reason or another. Do I look like a Gina? You can form your own opinion by clicking here to see a picture of me.

Since then...

...I've been around and about. I've lived in Chicago, Alabama, and Texas with varying degrees of permanence. I now reside in Ann Arbor, but this will change in August.

I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a BA in Oriental and African Languages and Literatures. This translates into Normal English as "Chinese." I'm now pursuing an MA in the same vein, in the course of which I have been to the University of North Texas.

Update, update, update! College roulette wheel spins again!

Since I last updated this page, I received an acceptance letter from the University of Illinois. Not only that, but the fine folks at U of I offered me substantial financial aid. I'll be starting there in the fall.

Now that I'm thinking about it..
