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 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 tattoo on my forearm (my first visible one).
"The Count of Monte Cristo" by Alexandre Dumas

The Daily Show with John Stewart
Star Trek (I'm an Original Series kind of person)
Freaks and Geeks
Musical tastes include, but are not limited to:

The Righteous Brothers
Tears for Fears
I Sank Molly Brown
Cold War Kids
Death Cab for Cutie
Balkan Beat Box
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
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.
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)
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.
