Abigail Paige Patty (aka Abby Patty)
I major in Anthropology and an unknown second major because I’m super indecisive. I love cymbals (I’m on the RMB cymbal line) and sometimes I can play the oboe okay. Coffee, tie-dye, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Walking Dead are really the only things that matter to me. I almost exclusively listen to Wild Child (or anything that sounds like them). I like musicals a lot (especially Les Miserables). I own a Subaru Outback because I like to pretend to be outdoors-y.
Mallory O’Neal Melton
I am an English major at the University of Arkansas. I enjoy lots of Netflix (The Office, One Tree Hill, Grey’s Anatomy, and The West Wing to name a few), everything about Taylor Swift, and Jesus. I play the clarinet in the Razorback Marching Band and I am a member of Tau Beta Sigma. I grew up in a small town in Texas, which explains my extreme love for ranch and sweet tea. Sometimes people call me Mal or Mal-Pal, but that’s a new thing.
We met during early week for band, when Mallory locked herself out of her room at 4 a.m and had to borrow Abby’s shoes. We became close friends pretty quickly, because Mallory tends to tell her life story to anyone who will listen and we lived on the same floor freshman year. At some point we bypassed asking if we wanted to eat together to “What time are we going to eat tonight?”. We tend to assume that we’ll be doing everything together, which is how this blog came about – why would only one of us start a blog when we both could contribute?
