Teddy Casimir is a third-year double major (Communications and Performing Arts) and is likewise from a third-world country that doubles as an island with double the nation. He can usually tell a lot about a person based on where they think he's from. His passions in life include writing, movies, doodling, and short walks on some beach. He also really enjoys Game of Thrones (the books), A Clockwork Orange (the movie), and giving you the time of day (literally). He usually lives at home with his family and a lovely four-year-old who walks on all fours and wiggles his tail when he's called a good boy. Like father, like son. In his spare time, Teddy likes to spare as much time not doing anything as possible and lives by the motto "Life's like a pepperoni. You can't tell if it'll fall like Domino's till you take a bite" (ancient Chinese proverb).
