I'm a grad student, I'm loving life, and I'd love to meet
I'm originally from the Bay Area. Love Northern California and
SoCal is growing on me every day. I am in my fourth year of grad
school. To counter my days on campus, I have recently joined a
varsity gay kickball team. I'm having a blast.
I'm very well-rounded. As a child there were no limits to my
potential (or so folks claimed), and now that I am 30, I am looking
forward to honing that potential into a formidable life.
What I’m doing with my life
I currently have the privilege of "buying some time" to learn more
about the world we live in. I am a PhD student and loving every
minute of it (can you believe it?). Education is extremely
important to me and my family. My work focuses on cultural
institutions and their socio-political effects.
With this education, I look forward to landing an awesome,
creative, hopefully lucrative career. Alongside these career
aspirations, I hope to find a partner and have children.
I’m really good at
Making my bed, listening to others, smiling, and laughing at myself
(and occasionally others ). I'm learning to cook more and more, and
having a great time.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor, my ability to put people at ease, my legs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love biographies and science fiction.
Music: jazz, classical, musical theater, oldies, alternative.
Movies: love too many genres to list.
Food: Italian! Mexican! Indian!
The six things I could never do without
Regrettably the iPhone
A pen and pad of paper
I spend a lot of time thinking about
reminding myself to be present, thinking about choreography,
thinking about my five-year-old niece and her thirst for life and
On a typical Friday night I am
At home recuperating from the week with a bottle of wine, a glass
of water, or a good book
I'm not one to go out and party. If I do I'll keep it close to
home. I love productive weekends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I do not always like to play board games at parties. I'll excuse
myself to help clean up.
You should message me if
You have a good heart, you like to laugh and make others laugh, you
enjoy a balance between intellectual as well as trivial
conversations, or if you liked anything that you read, or perhaps
would like a clarification. Be well.
