My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Distinguishing characteristics: enthusiastic, smart, funny, curious, kind, shy, absent-minded professor and loving mom. A good listener.

I find it interesting that okcupid tends to match me to professors, writers, farmers/craftspeople, and people who live in the nonprofit world. I wouldn't have guessed it, but it seems right.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Savoring. Raising and enjoying my boy. Becoming more mindful. During the workday, I think, I write, I design classes and lectures, counsel students, teach and grade, run research projects, attend meetings. I am learning capoeira and button accordion. Spending time with friends and enjoying this surprisingly wonderful community I live in. (I know... Urbana, Illinois?)

FOOD
Just about everything, from diner food to haute cuisine to food from around the world. I like improvising in the kitchen, making something from nothing. I would go out of my way for great ice cream, a stellar bakery, an amazing lobster boil. I like eating sushi with my fingers, and playing with wasabi -- trying to get it to just the right point, where your eyes water and that tingle goes up your spine and out of the top of your head, but you're not *really* in (very much) pain.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My ideal world is rich in sunlight, music, silence, time with my son and friends, physicality, beauty.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
having a quiet evening with my boy watching something on Netflix, having dinner with friends, playing capoeira (a brazilian martial art), at a contra dance or a local sing, out listening to a local band, sometimes working or doing stuff around the house.
