Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
a charming, nerdy type with a sassy mouth and a 'go with the flow'
personality. i think a playful mindset is crucial to a well-lived
life, and that it's best reinforced with a healthy mix of
adventurous spirit, intellectual skepticism, and perverse
invariably drawn to substance over sparkle. entertainment for its
own sake is nice, but i prefer to be engaged and to see the value
in the experiences i undertake.
i have little interest in following socially prescribed norms.
life's too short to waste it being conformist. i dream of traveling
the world, participating in intentional communities, and doing
amazing, novel things with the limited time i'm allotted on this
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
in graduate school for applied developmental psychology. it's kind
of like being a systems engineer, but with human development
instead of machines. my sub-specialties are civic engagement/
community building, autism, and developmental approaches to
education. i'm a humanist who believes in working to make the world
a better place while we're here. i get a lot of flak for being
idealistic, but i'm all too aware of how the world works. i just
think life is infinitely more satisfying when you contribute to
something greater than yourself.

wouldn't want to live without, anyway:
1. intellectual stimulation
