Please give a warm welcome to erasmus as we induct her into the Member of the Month echelons for the first time since her appearance in the forums in 2014. A warm and friendly presence, erasmus has graced the forums with her literary input in well-written and well-received reviews which have gained her a steady following. Perhaps you’ll see her in the realms of academia too, like her philosophical counterpart. Who knows? But she’s definitely here and that’s great! Good to have you with us, erasmus.

Oh wow :oops:

Thanks for the vote guys! X) It sure didn't feel like 2 years since I joined. Time flies and all that~ Haha, the most academic thing that I'd write are probably my assignments. I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I got my username from a random name generator, and didn't realise that it linked to something like an education programme until much later. :D

Thanks for taking care of me!
