I have three masters degrees. I got them because I love to learn, read, and think about beautiful and difficult things. I love engaging conversation. Not political conversation, really, just life stuff. Everything that gets people through the day, the week, a life. I'd love to be able to share that.
Just a few more dorky details:
I'm -- hopefully -- goofy (but not way-out-there goofy.) Cute (but not at all cutesy). Smart. Funny, especially if you like your humor dry. A loyal Barcelona fan (the team, and also the city). A traveler, especially to big cities and beautiful countrysides. Love the idea of going to bizarre places where I don't speak the language. Like reading and writing, enjoying the great big moments in life and the little ones that can pass by unnoticed.
Although this "essay" might not sound like this -- I'm not that serious a person. I like to laugh, banter, and conspire foolishness. I'd rather listen to Howard Stern than NPR sometimes. That should be a private confession, but there you go.
I'm not sure why so many of these profiles look like adverts for endurance and extreme sports. So many people here bear no resemblance to any human being I've ever met (not even in DC). I believe that staying active and working out helps one feel better, stronger, more creative, all those good things - super important and essential to a well-lived life. But enough with the craziness. There is nothing wrong with staying in with a glass of wine and a nice movie, even when the day is nice outside. Skies will not fall.
