So now I've changed it... but just keep that in mind.
I think the most interesting things about people when I'm getting to know them are their contradictions. Here area few of mine: I have a phd... and an obsession with Eminem. I like to talk about serious things like books and politics and humanity... and to gossip and talk about sex. I've taken part in serious athletic competitions at the international level... in the sport of ultimate frisbee. I love to cook and eat delicious food from all over the world made with high quality local sustainably produced ingredients... and then on some days I just really want a slim jim. Even though I'm not sure it actually counts as food.
I am a grownup living a grownup life in the grown up world. But I'm also a little nostalgic for the days when it was ok to be earnest and not cynical, and yet to see the humor in even the things we take seriously. And when it was always ok to sing out loud.
