Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Welcome to my profile. I'm Sam. Sam I am.
I'm from East Central Illinois, but more recently I've lived in
some awesome places, such as rural Panama, Guatemala, Oakland, and
I am currently a graduate student. Things I have been in the past

dropout. I have some ideas about the future, but nothing is
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I like school, and I tend to have my hands in many different
projects, internships, volunteer efforts, etc. Grateful daily for
the opportunities I have to participate in such things. I have the

Music and food: I like my chocolate like I like my claviers.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- corrective lenses
- lovely people
- this nagging feeling that I need to accomplish something with my
- exercise. endorphine withdrawl is definitely a thing.
- coffee. I hate to sound hipsterish but it is my primary vice.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I should spend less time by myself and more time with myself.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I totally have a thing for Ewan McGregor.
I'm essentially 99.99999% heterosexual. The other 0.00001% pines
