My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
From the look of things off my balcony this morning, I should be up early more often.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working a fellowship and taking language classes. Right now I am studying the Kantian influence on the political theorist Kenneth Waltz and comparing the evolution of his thought from earlier essays to later published material. I came back to Colorado from NYC a few years ago to do a grad degree in International Studies/Political Science. Finished with classes, I have a couple papers and a language exam to take care of. After this comes long term career hunting. My education focus is in human rights and related subjects: anti-corruption, human trafficking, and group identity/conflict. My goal has always been work overseas.

I obtained a high quality keyboard from a friend recently. It's certainly no upright but I am immensely grateful. As such, for the past number of months I have spent time daily on the piano, and--- except for those moments when I get frustrated by something I can't play, or try playing for a friend and suddenly can't remember how to play the piece I've just played every day for the past three weeks; or just all that I want to be able to do and can't--- it has been very therapeutic.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Research. Writing. Non-linear thinking and linking abstract information. Making a near perfect cup of Bosnian Coffee. I often shoot a mean game of pool-- but just when I think it's permanent, I'll end up with a week of not being able to hit shit. Ending up in random conversations with strangers- I sometimes do this spontaneously, say on the street while trailing a group of friends, resulting in text messages a few minutes later of "um... where are you?" Getting lost in the mountains. Finding unique places and meeting unique people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm soft spoken- usually- and tend to be very polite. (I know a lot of you girls like a bit of arrogance in your guys- personally I almost always find self-felt superiority to be annoying, weak, and delusional. There's a difference between self-worth based on self and self-worth based on devaluing everyone around you.) My wardrobe isn't exactly a rainbow. I can't imagine wanting to wear anything yellow anywhere ever.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
For the most part I really -could- do without.

Music is the closest exception. The last time my I-Pod broke, I was okay... really... but the world definitely sucked just a little bit more.

I have found while traveling that there is no heaven quite like a clean bathroom.

I get acclimated eventually, but generally if I'm indoors and it's very hot, the A/C never stops.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Motivations. Potentials. Lives. Language. The constructs behind abstract notions and how they affect perception. History. Incongruencies. The correction of wrongs. Why I still haven't gone to sleep.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Varies. Anything from crashed out exhausted on my couch, to in a cafe (alone or with friends) studying/job hunting/letter writing, having a beer and shooting a game of pool (typically after studying once the cafes have closed), having dinner with a friend, or catching a play. I've been meaning to explore more of the local music scene- after I returned here from NYC I found it had become almost completely unfamiliar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...on a public profile wouldn't be very private. I try to answer direct questions directly, though, and usually will admit if I'm just not willing. So ask. I have nothing I need to hide, and little I want to hide.
