Time: Angela Nunez ’11
Where are you from?
Western Maryland, where the Appalachian
Mountains rule everything from the weather
to one's mood.
What is your major?
English, with a Spanish minor.
Did you always know
you wanted to come to Smith?
No, but a family friend who is an alum insisted
that I check it out and I fell in love the moment I stepped
Now the fun stuff. Who
gets the most face time with you?
My wonderfully supportive and patient boyfriend.
Do you have a nickname?
Statue—my boyfriend's friend came up with it because
of the face I make when I'm angry.
What are you reading
Classical Indian plays by Kalidasa, numerous books
by Virginia Woolf (for my seminar) The Canterbury Tales (in
the original Middle English—I'm quite proud of myself), and
Elizabeth Bishop poems. Like I said, I'm an English major,
so I'm reading more than the average student should ever
be asked to read at once. But I love it!
Do you eat fast food?
No. Especially not after seeing Food, Inc.
What do you miss most
Riding my pony through the winding trails in the Appalachians.
What is your favorite
The Lord of the Rings—all three of
them, which I really consider one movie since it was filmed
all at once.
If you suddenly had
two hours of free time, what would you do?
Lose myself in the woods of New England, which I
love almost as much as my woods back home.
What is your favorite
wall hanging in your room?
A postcard with an old picture on it of a nude woman
with a horse.
Do you consider yourself
an urban, suburban or rural person?
Rural. I'm happiest when I've got a whole mountain
or two to myself.
What's your favorite
thing about where you grew up?
How rural it is and that it has all four seasons.
Summer there is perfect because it doesn't get as hot as it
does in New England and in the winter it gets even more snow.
What annoys the heck
out of you?
When people chew with their mouths open. Also extremists
and close-minded people—I've found that those two things usually
Who are your role models?
My mother, who has survived a house fire, an abusive
relationship, and breast cancer, and is still the most loving,
open person you will ever meet. She can find the good in
