Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in grad school for my MSW degree. One more semester! Bear with

In no particular order:
with swords and magic (even if I haven't had time to
read one in a while)
emotional and physical connections with others
late-night conversations with friends
SPF 30 sunscreen
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
the people I care about
how to live every day to the fullest
binaries and how to smash them
how to avoid getting hit by a car while biking in Chicago
where I should go camping
class issues and capitalism
escape routes from whichever room I am currently in
On a typical Friday night I am
