My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here are some things: I was born in San Francisco, grew up in Portland, and went to school in Vermont and China. I am quiet, thoughtful, questioning, introverted, deeply empathetic. I hate arrogance. I enjoy riding my bicycle. I recently wrote "feminism?" on my to do list. When I see tree roots breaking through pavement, I frequently think to myself, "Fuck yes, Nature! Stick it to The Man!" I believe that empathy, compassion, kindness, infusions of beauty and generally, greater willingness to employ more relativistic and contextualized perspectives could begin to serve as powerful antidotes to some very complex and tragic problems in this world.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Ambition-wise: I'm a completing my pre-med post-bac; I aim to become a physician and am fascinated by where medicine and anthropology intersect. I'm currently working in the ER, volunteering and taking classes here and there.

Otherwise: I am suppose, like all of us, I am looking for joy and love and trying to do so with integrity, morality and compassion!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
the Columbia Gorge
rain (and the smells and sounds and green things that come along with it)
people who are gentle
the circus
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Social and other types of justice, peace vs. justice (and if this versus belongs in that thought), balance.

The monologue from the beginning of I heart Huckabees (a mixture of swearing and existential questions) pretty much sums up what goes on in my head most of the time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working on my handstands.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In spite of being the daughter of a carpenter, I lack the capacity to hold pencils behind my ears. I feel like this must be due to some inherited deformity and I find it deeply unjust as well as inconvenient. In addition, I just think that squat toilets are highly superior to Western ones.
