My self-summary
I'm a dreamer, a wanderer, a runaway. There is nothing like speeding down highway 280 from my native San Francisco, lying in the sand and gazing at the stars, reading a book that is so beautiful it makes me cry. I'm a devourer of ideas, of art, of beauty, of meaning, and I'm nothing if not intense. I live my life passionately, fleetingly, exquisitely, yearning for something to move me. I'm human, terrifyingly, piercingly human, and I want to live my life as deeply as I can. I enrich myself with every moment, wonder at the beautiful, muddle through the terrible, and I positively yearn to dance in the Trevi fountain like Sylvia in La Dolce Vita.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a daughter of the sun and sea, a contemplator in the silent fog of my San Francisco, shivering in this icy city that is Chicago. I'm an English major at The University of Chicago, where the thrill of the mind (almost) makes up for the frigid temperatures and lazy topography of this city. I also work full-time for a mobile gaming startup in Silicon Valley designing games and writing narratives, a job which not only is putting me through college, but allows me to write, and write, and write, and make the world that is so vivid to me visible to others. Apparently, I have boundless energy, and somehow dedicate considerable time and energy to daydreaming, often in the Art Institute, and I also have a rather embarrassing love of shopping.
I’m really good at
Living breathlessly in the moment, dreamily in the past
Embracing my contradictions
Thrift shopping
Being occasionally impulsive, mostly responsible
Crying in operas
The first things people usually notice about me

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life moves in patterns, in circles, and those moments of intersection, of completion, fascinate me. Those moments so perfect they are a death, a caress, a confession, an agony. Where you're so complete that you're not even whole anymore, and the world shatters around you into a thousand falling stars. When beauty thrusts you outside time and into something beyond, an other formed by perceptions and reactions and the haunting voice of the earth and the sky and the sun. And the primeval knowledge laps at you with the gentle passion of a kiss and holds you in impossible perceptions which in that moment, destroy every sense of being.
