My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Did you ever have that friend in college who caught the activism bug and poured their heart and soul into it; working horrifically long hours for desperate campaigns or causes for very little (if any) pay? Yeah, I'm like that guy except I grew up as a fat, self-centered Republican, matured into a progressive Democrat when I realized the world didn't revolve around me and then lost 65 pounds in the process of joining the Army and hunting Taliban in Afghanistan. Maybe I'm not exactly like "that guy" but I think you get the idea.

Politics and such aside, I love my friends like the family I never really had and am thankful for all of the awesome people I've met and crazy things I've had the chance to do. I love running, hiking, random adventures and hanging out in creative "college town" types of places (they remind me of home). Basically anywhere the bookstores outnumber the chain restaurants. Obviously I'm slightly (ok, mostly) on the nerd side of the spectrum so I do spend a good chunk of my time reading (both books but also political/econ/world affairs blogs/websites) and it would be kind of nice to have someone to discuss said topics with *hint hint*.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently getting my MBA at MIT thanks to the generosity of the U.S. taxpayer via the GI Bill. I'm trying to get into healthcare management long-term but for now I'm just trying to catch up on all of the living that I missed while I was in the Army.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
These are in no particular order: telling nerdy jokes, running, organizing political activities (voter registration, phone banking etc), proofreading my friends' college papers, listening, getting lost when I want to and un-lost when I need to, teaching history/economics, shearing sheep (random, I know) and frisbee.
The first things people usually notice about me

That I'm one of the few cars in Somerville with both an Obama 08 and Afghanistan Campaign sticker.

Movies: Lawrence of Arabia, Accepted, History of the World Part 1, The Kite Runner, Restrepo, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Runaway Jury, The Producers, Love Actually.

Music: Mashups, Boyce Avenue, Tyler Ward, One Republic and random pop music. When I'm homesick I also have a taste for country music.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Some kind of larger purpose
2. Friends
3. Hope for a better future
4. Access to the news
5. Time to exercise
6. Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make the world a better place while still earning a paycheck.

On a less grandiose scale I think a lot about how to get the most out of my life, be it in terms of adventures, memories or some other criteria.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, with my class schedule Thursday is the big social night so Fridays are usually open.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I didn't have much of a positive relationship with my parents growing up but I think I'm better off for it since it made me more independent and confident in the long run.

If you're the most badass person you know, you crave adventure and are going to save the world.
