My self-summary
I love music, people, silence, noise, books, ponds, lakes, rivers, oceans and tide pools, as well as most puns.

I zone out sometimes, and I look to the side when I'm thinking about what to say.

I like to write ridiculous poems for people on Facebook for their birthdays.

I procrastinate by cleaning, finding an excuse to walk around, and playing music.

I miss Boston, my cat's name is Bonnie Raitt, I go to church and shop for records on Sundays, and I'm addicted to office supplies.
What I’m doing with my life
I came from Massachusetts to California to study intercultural studies and international/urban development. I always hope that what I'm doing with my life is meaningful and fun.

Along with school, I'm a data analyst for a fundraising software/data company with non-profit clients. My office is my home, various cafés and occasionally the library. I love this about my job.

I'm still getting used to the abundant sunshine. On one of our more seldom rainy days, I was so happy I cried.
I’m really good at
recognizing faces.
singing and strumming at the same time.
drawing home-made birthday cards.
cooking chicken.
whistling very loudly.
determining the ripeness of avocados.
sitting and reading for long stretches.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have big eyes. I've been told I resemble Beaker the muppet...and Olive Oil. And River Tam.

How to communicate interdepartmentally
On a typical Friday night I am
Finding something to do in my new hood, watching movies or reading...and reading...and reading for school.

I'm still kind of afraid of the dark.
