I'm currently aspiring to be a young urban professional in Madison and getting a Master's Degree in Environmental Engineering. I drink very little, considering this. Now that I'm in grad school, I'm trying to cultivate an irrational hatred for These Kids Today. We had Saved By the Bell. They had Saved By the Bell: The New Class.
I'm very religious. I'm a confessional Lutheran (with my own copy of the Book of Concord and everything!), and would secretly like to add "this is most certainly true" to every e-mail or report I write. It's something I find great hope, strength, and comfort in.
Music: I just don't have the time to invest looking at the local music scene to know what's good or not, but I enjoy live music a lot. I listen to a very eclectic mix, which has taken a strange turn into bluegrass of late. The Beatles. The Who (did you know I can mow a lawn in the time it takes to listen to Tommy?). My guilty pleasure is Fiona Apple. I also have a weird thing for OLD, old country. I've made my peace with Radiohead and have caved in towards acknowledging them if not loving them. Bon Iver is from my hometown, and I'm a big fan. I sometimes imagine that we'll get stuck in an elevator or something and will have very little to talk about despite our common background.
I like to sing, too. I'm ok at it. I play piano just enough to trick people who don't play piano into thinking I'm good, even though I suck.
I am intelligent, spiritual, and stubborn.
