I am just as much at home at the symphony in my tux, Orange Fridays in my orange and black 20" Mohawk, backpacking the Yosemite high country, riding a horse, sleeping in my car to get first chair on a powder day, or dancing all night and into the early morning. I have no shame and no reservations.
How? Energy. I was blessed with enough to jumpstart a jet. ...I climb at planet granite and go to 24hour fitness, PG, or the Y to swim every day. I'm an avid skier (see below) and can think of nothing more serene than the sound of crisp powder sliding beneath your skis as you float down an untracked glade.
I was blessed with unbelievably amazing parents (still in the city, we're close, and they go to cooler concerts than half my friends) and two really outgoing younger siblings (my younger brother, who has volunteered from Lithuania to Ecuador to the Australian outback and is now finishing up at UCSF med, the other, my brilliant and adventurous kid sister, who is a journalist in SE Asia).
I genuinely respect people who have 'family who are like friends' (and close friends who are like family).
I went to undergrad in LA, law school in DC, and lived on Maui. I have always traveled a lot, courtesy of being fortunate enough to have close friends abroad, and will continue to do so, hopefully with the right partner in crime. If you can sleep on a plane, go 24 hours without hesitation, and reach a far off destination with enough left in the tank to hit a rooftop lounge... Major brownie points.
