Chester Brewer

I recently left a job as cake decorator at Maggie Moo's Ice Cream on Prince Ave. Before delighting audiences everywhere with ice cream magic, I was a student worker in the Acquisitions Cataloging Dept for about two years. I applied for this position because, as many of you know - student loans don't pay themselves- and so it was time to find a real job. The position came open and some inside sources referred me to it. (Thanks Janice, Brandy, and Sarah). I really enjoyed working here as a student so it was a sound decision to come back.

Like so many people, school brought me to Athens. I graduated cum laude in August of 2004 with a BA in romance languages (French and Spanish). My hobbies are varied; I'm into paper arts and bookbinding, sustainable architecture and intrest in gardening and the simple living/back to the land movements, video games (a guilty pleasure), biking, walking, meditating, cooking (I love to eat!!) and just socializing with my friends. My favorite books include the Tao Te Ching (Lao Tzu), Every Step Is Peace (Thich Naht Hanh), The Simple Living Guide (Janet Luhrs), Gone With the Wind (Margret Mitchell), and Wide Sargasso Sea (Jean Rhys). My favorite movies include "Thelma and Louise," "Spirited Away," "To Wong Fu;" generally foreign films are best though. When I shake my Magic 8 Ball, it responds that my future goals are hazy and that I should ask again later.

I could devote a whole paragraph to favorite foods. I'm vegeterian (and very picky about eating things with partially hydrogenated oils - if I know they are in a food, I usually won't eat it) so beans are my best friends. Me gusta Mexican food, I love Thai food and baked goods have a special spot in my heart (especially the least healthy ones - poundcake, cheesecake, doughnuts). However, tofu is my wonder food and chocolate chip cookies are my soulmates.

I sadly am without a pet; I really like cats a lot and would love to have one, but alas that is the price one pays to live in a small apartment close to campus.

Well, a unique feature about myself. ... I'm currently interested in outdoor/adventure education, more of the experiential part of learning. Iin that vein I will be signed up to take a ropes training course at Ramsey. Ropes courses help with group building and leadership skills by games and learning initiatives that take place on various ropes setups. It'll be interesting, that's for sure.

(Editor's Note: Chester declined to include a photograph with his profile, a idiosyncrasy which is becoming all too familiar to Update. On the other hand, he wrote this himself, currying favor with the editor.)
