The Phoenix

Liz Monk is a junior who can often be found hunched over a stack of homework, crying internally. She is in a perpetual state of exhaustion, due to the amount of work she gets from her AP and college level classes, and you might want to avoid her during dress rehearsal week for the musical unless she has coffee in her hand. She is hardly ever found without a book, which she will most likely read later at home and end up crying hysterically. She enjoys avoiding her responsibilities by binge watching Criminal Minds on Netflix, after which she consequently procrastinates doing her homework and rushes to complete it at the last moment. Despite all this, she always gets her work done (eventually).
