My self-summary
I come from storytelling stock. Once, when I was 10 or so, my grandfather took off his shirt and explained his scars to me. My father used to punctuate his stories with explosive sound effects: "WHAM!" and the thick sound of a fist hitting palm. I use my hands in my stories a lot too.

Information gets stuck in my head and hangs out until I need to explain why tortalleni is shaped like a bellybutton, or how armadillos inflate their their intestines to float across rivers.

I gather new stories through the usual means: hanging out with friends, reading, watching TV and movies, trying new things, traveling new places. I travel a fair amount for work, and for myself. I went to Arizona in September, Scotland in October (that was for funsies), New Orleans in November, and San Diego in December.

Ah, but you may be wondering, what can I actually do? Can I cook, can I clean, can I dance, can I sing? The answers are, in order: Oh hell yes, most assuredly, I'm a bit rusty but yes, and only in the shower. I can also build a bookshelf (with directions), troubleshoot computer problems, walk obscene distances, write wry little text message stories, rock an outfit, and make you laugh.
What I’m doing with my life
Dating.

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 also write a little 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
Girls
Other people
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
Education
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.
