B. Did some do-gooding with AmeriCorps for a few years: Bay Area, Boston, New Orleans. I'm 3ish years into an extended New York visit. Moved here for grad school—journalism. (I've since graduated and am now stumbling through some other path.)
E. A childhood of few family travel trips and never camping has flowed into a maturity of tramping dreams and camping plans. (No tent is a limitation).
X. I don't think I'm very funny. Goofy and self-deprecating and slightly sly, but that's not quite humorous. Maybe I'm bemusing.
