My empathy switch is set very high and I am embarrassingly nice to animals, especially puppies. I have rushed injured squirrels to the vet and moved several turtles from busy highways. I will give at least a few minutes of playtime to any dog that asks.
I've traveled around the country a bit. Lived for at least a few weeks or months in different places throughout the US and Mexico. But I grew up in Brooklyn, New York and spent a lot of my adult life bouncing around to various parts of NYC and its suburbs.
Most of my time outside New York was in either Baltimore or Orlando, though I seem to remember being in DC, Seattle and Acapulco for long stretches.
