My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*** I left my home of Washington, DC, United States in November 2014 to travel abroad. I was in Israel/Palestine for the winter, Greece for the spring, I'm in Balkans for the summer, and finally France for the fall. Sorry, I only know English and a little Spanish. ***

I'm currently in Romania but will be in Paris by late September or early October and will stay for three months. My account is set for Paris now because I'm looking to connect with people ahead of time, specifically other revolutionary leftists.

Why? I'm coming for the COP21, the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_United_Nations_Climate_Change_Conference

As a climate justice activist, I will meet my friends and other activists in Paris to organize protests and demonstrations against the UN. Our message: to tell the UN and the world that the UN has been ineffective for three decades of climate alarm and that we cannot afford to follow the same path for the future or else humanity will perish; and to take action ourselves to shut down the fossil fuel industry.

Admittedly I will reluctantly work with the liberal big greens like Greenpeace and 350 since I have little resources of my own but I hope to find radlefts in Paris to connect with too. If you are someone like this or have friends involved I would greatly appreciate a message!

My hobbies include hiking up to mountaintop sunsets, eating too many blueberries, mountain biking, and smashing the patriarchy. The last semester I was in school I camped in the woods instead of living in a dorm.

I love astronomy, paleontology, oceanography -- ANY science! It's amazing! Anthropology, culture, and social constructs supply endless fascination. And maps and globes are an obsession of mine, I can stare at them for hours (If this is you at all, message me now).

I've gotten different results each of the three times I've taken the MBT. Consider me an extrovert trapped in an introvert body.

Oh, you should know that I find texting very distracting. I don't text often. Please don't take it personally if I don't text you conversationally.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Climbing trees -- there are squirrels up there!

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cloud gazing, star gazing, swimming and coaching swimming, working with kids of all ages, being patient and tolerant, improvising on the piano, doodling and writing in my journal, and appreciating silence and solitude. Plus, I'm fluent in sarcasm, though my dialect is often uninterpretable: you'll never know if I'm being sarcastic or not.
The first things people usually notice about me

I'm barefoot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Noam Chomsky is at the top of my bookshelf. And Franz Kafka! Metamorphosis pales in comparison to his novels, you've gotta read The Trial for a real heavy dose of existence. Pedagogy of the Oppressed, everything Douglas Adams, Calvin and Hobbes, Animorphs, Watership Down, The Giving Tree, A Wrinkle in Time, The Little Prince, Dracula, Skippy Dies, The Book Thief, Holes, Stargirl, Amusing Ourselves to Death, A Brief History of Time, and The Simon and Schuster Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Creatures... I don't like listing favorite books because there's soooo many more books out there that I will probably love more than the ones I've read before, thousands of titles yet to be discovered, so why should I think these are my favorite?

There's too many movies I haven't seen, I'm quite deprived. Anyways, I've enjoyed Harold and Maude, Wes Anderson's works, Love Actually, Brothers Quay films are über trippy, Safety Not Guaranteed, Dragon Heart, August Rush, Pan's Labyrinth, Kinsey, The Princess Bride, Good Will Hunting, Fight Club, Short Bus (I *need* to find someone else who's seen this), Almost Famous, and way more that I'm forgetting. I gushed over Toy Story 3 -- I cried several times. Lately I'm more into indie flicks.

Bill Nye the Science Guy. Ok, I need to admit I don't really watch TV, I instead waste away my life on reddit. I hate it.

I love all kinds of music yet it doesn't mean as much to me as it does for most other people: I prefer silence more often than not. I can't stand listening to the same genre over and over again -- it's gotta switch from classical to indie to celtic to punk to a cappella to heavy metal to ska to acoustic to the most avant-garde sounds you can think of. Lately I'm into Regina Spektor, The Jezabels, Amanda Palmer, and Björk. I love live music, even if they're shitty musicians -- it's the people that matter.

Parsnips, pecans, persimmons, and anything pumpkin flavored particularly appease my palate. Food I don't like doesn't exist. Given the opportunity to try something new I will seize it, even if it's svið (sheep's head, an Icelandic delicacy).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dreams, of the day kind and the night kind.
My feet to travel, my eyes to see.
The water to swim in, the mountains to climb.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The sand between my toes, the night sky in the winter, the grass under my head, the thoughts in my mind.

Consider that a poetic way of responding with "everything."

Need me to be more specific? The interactions between cognition and culture, how perspectives are mediated by our environment, and the psychologies that come out of this. I'm increasingly interested in post-modernism. Oh, right. Specificity. Umm... alienation and community, anarchism, critical pedagogy, digital anthropology, and how the internet and new technologies change the way we think, interact, empathize, communicate -- everything. Formerly I was all about the STEM fields, especially astrophysics, but college thankfully pried open my mind to what else is out there.

Other than that my life is a constant daydream, weaving stories together whenever I'm bored.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Making plans at the last minute and getting lost with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Depression plagues me but it's not as bad as it once was. The end of this comic aptly describes me now:

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have an insatiable passion for science. If you want to travel the world, backpacking on the road less traveled. If you're not content with the status quo, if you want to incite revolution.

In short, message me if pigs fly.
