I enjoy travel, and plan to spend fall of next year in Italy.
I'm an atheist and think religion is rather ridiculous, but I try not to be a dick about it.
You know how some kids pretend to like indie music to fit in? I'm the opposite. I pretty much only listen to indie, and only tolerate everything else (I enjoy some post-rock, ambient, folk, and bluegrass as well, but I'm rather picky).
I pretty much fit every Conservative's stereotype of The Liberal. I wear the Birkenstock. I don't eat the meat. I read philosophy, go hiking in the woods, give money to every homeless person (if I can), and watch pretentious movies. I could certainly described as having a bleeding heart. I am ashamed of none of this, and in fact am very proud of all these things. (Except the Birkenstocks. I take no particular pride in how I am shod.)
I listen to a lot of Elliott Smith, but I'm not about to off myself.
I develop new obsessions monthly. Past fixations have included Buddhism and cryptozoology. Last month it was Selam, the Australopithecus baby found in Ethiopia. She's adorable and I'm really interested to see what she can tell us about evolution. I'm currently working at a special needs camp, so campers with cognitive and physical disabilities are a big preoccupation.
My favorite cartoon character is Dr. Zoidberg from Futurama. His mouthparts make me excited.
If I could be doing anything right now, I'd be uncovering Mayan ruins in the Yucatan, or hiking the Appalachian Trail. If anyone wants to fund one of these trips, you should drop me a line.
I am introverted, imaginative, and idealistic
