I grew up in NJ, froze my tush off at Boston College for undergrad, and spent a couple years in CA living out my dream of being a beach bro and working with the homeless population. I eventually realized how unsustainable this dream was and moved to NYC for grad school last year. Assuming I don't burn down my school for its administrative incompetence, I should have my Master's degree in Social Work by May and be back to working in the mental health field shortly thereafter.
As far as personality goes, a friend recently suggested that my spirit animal should be an otter since I'm "friendly, relaxed, and playful." I normally don't rely on animal comparisons to describe myself, but I find it mitigates the awkwardness of OKC self-advertising.
Sheeeeeit, who am I kidding - I just wanna brag that I'm cool like an otter.
I spend my time running/gyming, watching sports (love/hate the Knicks), pushing off reading/papers by watching weird/funny animal videos, pleasure-reading if I can find the time, grabbing drinks with friends when I need a school/work break (all the time), and meeting new people (like you, maybe).
