I spend much of my time hanging and helping out as an assistant teacher in a 2nd grade classroom, getting inspired by their curiosity, ability to forgive and forget, and their forwardness. I try to bring these things into my life outside of work.
After moving out of the States 2+ years ago, and living out of my backpack for the year after, de cluttering my mind and belongings has been a long term project. Meditation, devaluing consumerism, living on a low budget and self sufficiency are a big part of my life.
I usually feel best when: a friend spontaneously want to get out of the city, When I am actually making my own initiative to get out of the city, getting nerdy about languages, listening to your story, smiling at strangers, walking around in a frown and getting a smile from a stranger, licking my plate clean, contradicting myself, swimming in the sea, having my peers call me out or challenge me, dancing to whatever is on the radio of the car passing by, trying to figure out how to repair something or other, dropping a letter in the mailbox, making tahini and dancing to Freddie Mercury with a friend.
