Margaret is an antisocial English major who is most famous for her frequent use of the word "awful." She is getting too old chronologically for her maturity level, and is someone who, when asked if she thinks she is "better than/too good for/above that" in reference to a wide variety of things/people, will usually think (and often say) "Yes, I am."
