I'm currently a second-year grad student at DU studying international human rights. Beyond school and studying and seemingly endless amounts of reading, I like to do the same things that pretty much every human being likes to do-- read (for pleasure), travel, engage in deep philosophical conversations, and hang out with friends. I'll go ahead and say it up-front since it's the winter-y season: I don't ski and I don't snowboard. That said, if you ski or snowboard, awesome.
I'm originally from Minnesota, and I've been told I have a slight mid-western accent, which can be further provoked and emphasized when drinking is involved. If you ever find yourself in my company when this happens, ask me if I can see Russia from my house and enjoy the following fantastic Sarah Palin impression.
Rather than making general statements about how I'm an easy-going, fun/funny girl who likes to have a good time (which may or may not be true), here are some additional random things about me.
-I think the US Postal Service is fascinating.
-I sort M&Ms by color before eating them.
-I've been using the same bookmark since I was in 8th grade.
-I estimate that I wear moccasins at least 300/365 days of the year.
-I have season tickets to the Colorado Mammoth, and I'm extremely excited for the season to start.
