What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying my free time. Reading in the park. Planning curriculum for
my future after-school program. Visiting the Electric Fetus far too
often. Making butterscotch milkshakes. Working on my motivation
issues and figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Rocking
the karaoke mike. Going apeshit over adorable puppies. Shoe
shopping. Half-heartedly networking. Dreaming of social democracy.
Planning road trips I can't afford to take. Wondering why there's
never time when there's money and vice versa. Quite a bit of blow*.
Playing inconsistent tennis. Researching popular musicology.
Soul-searching and the like. Envying Mary Lucia.
*apparently sarcasm doesn't always come across on the page, or
screen, as it were.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How accurate these "personality awards" are. While the two I've
received so far (more independent and less old-fashioned) are
accurate, I've run across several profiles with statements like
"how the hell am I considered 'More Republican'?" and so on. Just a
little wary of how I'm being represented...
