What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As a recent college graduate, I am working to pay off student loans - can I get an "amen"?! Fortunately, I am doing what I love: teaching. I am currently teaching GED prep courses for the Department of Corrections at two different locations. It's not the type of teaching I want to do long term, but it has taught me a lot about the art of education and handling people, presenting unique challenges and offering opportunities to work through them. It has also humbled me in understanding what I don't know, filling in the gaps of my own education. There is no learning like teaching!
Working towards greater self-knowledge and wisdom is very important to me. I am continually striving for greater understanding of myself in terms of me and myself in relation to others.
I am also practicing gratitude, particularly when life is difficult, or things don't turn out the way I want or expect them to.
I am anxiously awaiting word from the Peace Corps. Service is something I value. Being given the chance to serve others and be a part of something bigger on a small scale is tremendous. Here's hoping. . . In the event that I do not get accepted, graduate school is the path I will take. Researching programs and some really amazing institutions has been equally exciting. Great things are happening and heading my way.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Academia. School is where I thrive.
I am great at listening. It's a skill that I have put time and effort into.
Middle English, working on my Old English and Old Norse
Literature and analysis.
Compassion and empathy.
I am also really good at trying new things (emphasis on the "trying" part. There is no guarantee that I will actually be good at the thing I'm trying).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
As of right now, my hair since it is so short.
The tattoo on my forearm (my first visible one).
My smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I love to cook. It's therapeutic in so many ways for me, whether it's done by myself or with others or for others.
My favorite cuisine is Ethiopian. I also enjoy Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, Lebanese, Greek, Italian, Mexican. Basically anything. I love sushi. I also enjoy vegan foods and gluten-free foods and often experiment with them in the kitchen. Can we talk about desserts, please? Carrot cake (especially from Tony's Market), cheesecake, Spring Fling (from The Market in Denver), tres leches cake, pecan pie, my pistachio cranberry white chocolate fudge, Nutella, and bitter chocolates. These are all so amazing.
I really love beer. Deeply.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Writing utensils.
My wonderful friends and family.
My unending gratitude to be alive as I know it!
Beer. Really good beer.
The Universe (and other potential universes and dimensions)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The universe
Space travel
Self awareness
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
This answer varies. Sometimes I spend Fridays with a friend, or a group of friends. Sometimes I reserve it for time to myself to write. It is important for me to have silence in my life. This world is so noisy and distractions abound. I need silence to refocus, reconnect, and think.
Friday nights sometimes include my telescope, the stars, the moon, space in between, and my own awe.
Movies are also a plus on Friday nights. I am not a club-goer or party-er. I prefer intimate settings with people I am close with.
