My self-summary
I enjoy journeys. I walk distances that my friends have called obscene. I walk far and often, which is how I started running. I was walking from Capitol Hill to Madison Park, Fremont, Ballard, Magnolia, and wanted to get where I was going quicker. I liked having a destination, usually a park or a restaurant, or a friend's house, but some parts were boring to walk through. So, I began running. I can't run as far as I can walk, but I'm pretty happy to run a 5k without stopping, and I'm pushing myself further. I signed up to do the Lake Union 10k later this summer!

Stories are a kind of journey too. I try to read often and keep up with movies, podcasts, and TV. I'm wishing there was a way to multitask reading/TV without joining a gym. I was working out in front of the TV, but I started bringing up the floorboards (I had to nail a few back down), and had to stop.

I go on literal journeys as well. I travel a fair amount for work, and for myself. Last year I traveled once a month from March through December. I went to Washington DC, Arizona, Scotland, New Orleans, San Diego, Oregon, and various places around Washington. I've traveled less this year, but I have places on my list I'd like to go this summer. I hear Victoria, BC is nice.

I'm also pretty good at cooking. I could try to squeeze that into my journey theme, but it doesn't really work. I like food, and I like preparing food, feeding people, drinking wine, to sit laughing and eating and drinking among the last light of a warm summer evening, unwinding stories, debating, thinking out loud, maybe breaking out a board game or two. I'd like my summer to be filled with more evenings like this.
What I’m doing with my life

Oh, besides that? Well, I work at Bellevue College, advising the student government and the political action arm of the students. It's strange and challenging work, which is what I signed up for. I do a surprisingly large amount of event planning.

I'm also running more these days.

I also write here and there, and am currently thinking a great deal about about public, private, and digital space.

The six things I could never do without
Of course the usual answers of modern medicine, friends, family, skin, a pulse, my wallet, etc. I also prefer the following:

1) My journal
2) A solid pair of shoes
6) Imagination

I'm not great at these lists.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Other people. Where are they going? How far has that person been running? Did they eat dinner before they ran, or after?
How architecture and design influence the way people interact
User interfaces and how we use technology
New cooking projects
The various bizarre things that life presents for observation
Trends and the things that cause them
Nature and how weather can affect my mood
Working out complex moral and ethical situations in a fictional format
Figuring out who I am and who I'd like to be
On a typical Friday night I am
It changes on the mood and season. The past few Fridays have included: gathering for a big dinner at a friend's house, staying at home with a book and some whiskey, going for night wanders, drinking at a bar. More than likely, I am with friends and we are making fun of one another.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I got my Master's degree before I got a driver's permit. I am now learning to drive.
