My name is Nickolas Sullivan, I was born in Lubbock, Texas. I have two sisters, Wendy who is a tax lawyer in Wisconsin and Mindy who is currently persuing her MBA and works with the cross country and track team here at south. My family moved to Colorado City, Texas after my parents divorce where we lived until a brief stint in El Paso, Texas finally moving back to Lubbock. After I graduated High school a year early I attended my freshman year of college at the University of Hawaii Pacific in Honolulu, Hawaii. After my first Year I moved back to Lubbock for eight months before moving to Sidney, Ohio to be closer to my extended family. After eight months in Sidney I moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota which I is where I moved here from. I decided to attend south because my Sister had just moved here, it is a good school, and I was wary of harsh winters.
I have held a variety of jobs over the years and have worked as a camp counselor for the Boy Scouts of America teaching merit badges. I have always thought of being a teacher and flipped back and forth between a desire to teach, translate, or enter the medical profession. I finally came to the decision to teach after a rather recent discussion with various members of my family over where my interests and strengths lie.
I have always enjoyed artwork, music, poetry, and photography. I love going to museums and one of my favorite things about the time I spent in Minneapolis was that I lived a block away from the Walker Arts Center and Sculpture Garden. My favorite artists are M.C. Escher, Man Ray, and Salvador Dali. My favorite writers are Nicholson Baker and E.E. Cummings. I am an amateur photographer and I use a Pentax Super Program 35mm currently since my other camera broke awhile back. I also have two digital point-and-shoot cameras that I use occasionally. I write letters to friends and family occasionally on my blue portable Olympia typewriter because my handwriting can be indecipherable at times.
