What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Wrapping my mind around the fact that I've lived in San Francisco
longer than I've lived anywhere else. Wondering (in the fullest
sense of that word). Reading. Working. Dancing. Playing.
Performing. (And yes, the last two overlap). Taking too many
photographs. Admiring garden path sentences and trying to write
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Doing a tap combo to the 'Addams Family' theme song.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Time for self-care.
Postsecret with breakfast on Sundays.
PS: how did I forget coffee?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Should I audition for that show? If I could build a machine to suck
out the CO2 from the air and spit out gasoline, would that be a
good thing? Should I finish getting my pilates teacher credentials?
What does that song really mean? Why am I only a 99% match with
myself? Will I fare better in the world if I stop being an optimist
and turn jaded and cynical? Why don't Americans like the letter 'U'
in words? Can we really trust the OKC match percentages now? And
what's the deal with aluminium? Is nominative determinism a real
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
