My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an independent, highly opinionated, overly educated, and deeply compassionate humanitarian who still believes in the possibility of love. Seeking same.

I've recently had to come to terms with the fact that I'm officially a grown-up. But it has its advantages...I can eat ice cream for dinner and no one can tell me not to...

I can alternately be very spacey and abstract or overly literal and analytical...If I were a superhero I would be "Super Literal Girl" and my outfit would be a mod sixties black and white minidress...I would fight crime by catching criminals in false dichotomies...

I am frequently very lazy in my personal life but I work hard at my career...Well, that's not entirely true. I'm sometimes lazy in my career too. Sometimes I'm just lazy. You should know this about me in advance.

my favorite punctuation is the ellipsis...

I love walking and taking the Metro...I love the little signs in urban spaces depicting the horrible things that can happen to stick figures in the wrong place at the wrong time...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I ask myself that all the time...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1. writing academ-icky stuff only 5 other people will ever read
2. existential phenomenology
3. making soup
4. I haven't been able to say the phrase "I'm a very good driver" since the late 80s. [You get bonus points for knowing why] But I'm really good at driving.
5. deconstructing the cultural politics of embodied difference in an era of neoliberalism. [see #1]
The first things people usually notice about me

It should be obvious. ;)

I watch a lot of TV and have no shame about it. Orange is the New Black (so good!), Parks and Recreation, Mad Men, Buffy, Freaks and Geeks, True Blood, Weeds, Six Feet Under, Nurse Jackie (well, not the last season, it was awful), Friday Night Lights, GIRLS, Project Runway, Scandal, The Americans, Game of Cards House of Thrones (whatever)...and I'll always have a weakness for Sex and the City despite its flaws.

...but my favorite show ever is not TV: TAL (I heart theory, but I also heart Ira Glass).

Music: too much!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
privacy
cafés
touch
humor
drive
rest
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
the postmodern condition...
identity politics of representation in cinema & mass media...
the fact that I spend a lot of time thinking about my dissertation but not actually writing it...
and mostly...
what I can do to make the world a better place (I know, I know! But I'm serious).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
dining and drinking with friends
at the movies
watching TV on my sofa
at some artsy or music or hipster event...or some artsy hipster music event.
