TPS Seniors 2020

Anastasia Dulle – TPS Senior 2020

Anastasia Dulle, otherwise known as Stasi, was born at a very young age. Since then, she has spent much of her time existing, breathing, thinking more than she probably should, sleeping less than she probably should, and maintaining sentience. Her skills include submitting assignments 15 seconds before the due date, getting tired around people, and forgetting to eat.

Though ancient at heart, this smol sapling’s third greatest achievement (after finishing a novella and fitting a very large potato chip into her mouth once) is graduating high school at 16 years old. Other notable achievements include surviving two years as a TPS Forums moderator, herding children and sheep alike, and robbing graves.

Anastasia’s hobbies include reading, journaling, attempting to overcome writer’s block, disliking politics, and staying home during pandemics. She loves and cares deeply about God, her friends, nature, dark chocolate, good music, and the concept of creativity. Her favorite classes with TPS were Logic & Apologetics with Mr. Gray, Advanced Composition with Mrs. Troxell, Photography: Beginner to Brilliant with Miss Thomas, and Forensic Science with Mr. Ullman.

Recently Anastasia’s plans for the future have grown somewhat tentative, all global pandemics and travel restrictions considered. She’s hoping to study sociology or linguistics at a tiny university in Oklahoma this fall. Long-term plans include working in humanitarian logistics and not living in the United States. Backup plans include becoming a social psychologist, living as a recluse, or joining the mafia.

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?

All throughout my childhood, from the time I was about two, I desperately wanted to be a medical doctor when I grew up. That dream ended with 9th grade Biology.

Favorite Bible Verse

I love the verse Joshua 1:9, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, and do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” As I’ve moved countries and continents a few times throughout my life, the knowledge that God will be with me wherever I go is really comforting and meaningful to me.

Favorite Catchphrase

Probably the best/only advice I could give is that how you live each day is how you live your life. If you want to spend your life glorifying God or serving others or being a good friend, then decide how you’re going to do those things today.
