I spent the summer of 2010 dedicating my time to a long-term family project, which is to build by hand a cabin on a 40-acre plot we have in the Northwoods of Wisconsin (surrounded on all sides by the Nicolet National Forest!). I grew up spending lots of time in our half-constructed cabin and have a developed taste for "camping with a roof." We have neither plumbing nor AC, neither electricity nor central heating. I love it.
I studied abroad in China in 2008 and what I miss more than anything else is the food. Some of the best meals I've ever eaten were in China. In what was a lucky sidenote to my study abroad, I attended the Beijing Olympics.
After grad school I see myself working in education. An ideal job would be working at a university's center for learning to help develop high-quality, engaging curricula. Alternatively, government civil service is attractive. I want to interact with and give back to communities, be that on the scale of students or citizens.
It's difficult to name favorite books, but since I'm sitting in view of my bookshelf here are a few that I enjoy: Baudolino by Umberto Eco (historical fiction), Sea of Glory by Nathaniel Philbrick (historical nonfiction), and Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke (historical fantasy). I read daily, 30-40 minutes before bed most nights. I'm currently engrossed in Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (fiction). Lights are usually out by 11:30.

In my ideal scenario, after grad school in LA (2016ish) I end up back in the upper Midwest permanently. Just FYI I'd consider it a big plus if my long-term partner shared that interest, but it's not a dealbreaker. Year by year, LA is growing on me.
