Anyway, I am an all-purpose nerd going through a modest quarter-life crisis re: you know, important stuff, like What I Want To Do and Making Positive Change in the World. Still working out the details - this is mostly about me not knowing myself very well when I was a teenager.
Personality-wise I'm basically empathetic and generous and invested in my friends, but also cartoonishly awkward, melancholic, and I'm a bit of a prattler.
Politics drives me strongly, though in a meek academic center-leftist way which means I mostly spends my time muttering about fiscal multipliers and ethnic segregation. Something positive about myself: I'm temperamentally progressive in a way most white American dudes simply are not.
My therapist and I occasionally chat about Shelby County v. Holder, which I still lose sleep over, and now she's justifiably worried about how I'm handling Schuette. Don't worry: usually I send my friends things like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmdBWqmHYpY and keep the American Prospect links to myself.
