My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm back in school, (POSC, CSUEB), after being inspired by working as an office manager for a school gardening nonprofit in West Oakland. School has refocused me on my passions: Intersectional Feminism, Environmentalism, and Mental Health both generally and more specifically in advocating for people on the Autism Spectrum. Trying to balance following my original dream of social work and newer ambitions to make a larger difference in the policy world.

I'm cajun, partially, and if you ask nicely, I'll tell you what's wrong with every oyster po'boy and cup of gumbo I've had in the Bay. My best friends' wife is currently making a list of all the things I hate, and so far it's hilarious. I'm born and bred in Berkley, and I've lived from Richmond to downtown Oakland, because I am fit to burst with east bay pride. Or traffic in the city terrifies me. Either way.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I help facilitate a skills and socialization group for youth on the Autism spectrum, write opinion pieces for the school paper, and cook a lot.

I'm getting my BA, (POSC CSUEB), because I worked for a school gardening nonprofit in West Oakland. I've refocused on my passions, environmentalism, mental health, intersectional feminism, literary fiction, and advocating for Autists.

My hobbies tend to revolve around reading, arguing, or running. Sometimes several at the same time. I grew up a punker, grew into hip hop, and now love going to shows all over that spectrum.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, Eating- my family is from New Orleans- communicating with household pets and non-verbal children, finding masculine sunglasses in the women's section of Target, blarney, giving delightful tours, working with Autistic youth.
The first things people usually notice about me

You mean you want me to tell you what I think other people think of me when they don't know me? And I don't even know if I'll get the chance to suit up first....

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This question has a whole different cast immediately after all the possessions you value are taken from you.
My oldest possession is a Chef's Knife my sister gave me on our eighteenth birthday.
Twin power, generally.
Family- my mother and stepfather, along with the aforementioned.
A typer.
The acerbic wit that won't let this go without an offhand reference to the shelter/water/food/affection Maslovian hierarchy.
But much more importantly, I really don't like things much. I don't have a lot of them, and I'm not making a point out of it, but if objects are your primary interest we're going to be talking through each other.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Which I hope you took as a funny joke.
But I meant in that a lot of my thought process takes place on epistemological and epistemology topics.
It seemed clearer to say this than only "I enjoy thinking about the way language influences the way we think about the nature of being, and wether being exists in our thoughts."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Isen't part of the point avoiding normalcy?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have been diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome. It doesn't seem that private to me- but finding out has upset some people off, especially since I can usually "pass" for a while. I figure best to get that out of the way here, although I fear it's past the intended TMI rating of this question. Sadly, these "teasing" questions are very confusing to me, because as I said, Aspergers.
