I say what I mean and mean what I say.
Activism and politics are my passion.
I am happiest when I am wandering in a park or garden with my camera or hanging with friends playing board games.
I often find myself looking at nature with childlike wonder. If we didn't laugh at the small things we would cry when faced with the overwhelming suffering in this world. I choose to laugh and ride every carousel I lay eyes on.
On the whole I love to spend time with my cat Ginger, my family, friends, the newspaper, and a good book.
Also: making people laugh, photography, cross-stitch, giving massages, and deep conversations about politics, mental health, sexuality, film, or nonsense.
I look a lot younger than my age though I have an old soul. I was sitting in my supervisor's office the other day and one my coworkers who I do not know very well thought I was a patient. This was on an adolescent unit, where the oldest patient is 17 years old. We had a good laugh about it.
Some of my favorite books include Snuff, Nervous Conditions, The German Ideology, this Common Secret: my journey as an abortion doctor, sexuality and socialism, The Lord of the Rings.
I like movies, just not horror films because I will scream in my chair the whole
Yup, I watch TV. My favorites are How to Get Away with Murder, Game of Thrones, Big Love, Coupling, Sherlock, and Dr. Who. I grew up watching and will always love my 1980s and 1990s Britcoms, M*A*S*H, and Monty Pythons Flying Circus.
I like whatever music is playing, especially if I can dance to it.
I am also a huge fan of theater, musicals, opera, and ballet. Some of my favorite shows include: Spring Awakening, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Wolf Hall, Macbeth, Hamlet, Something Rotten!, Les Miserables, and My Fair Lady. I adore Shakespeare and am working of reading and viewing all the plays.
I like to explore different culinary experiences by trying out restaurants that serve authentic ethnic food as one part of learning about other cultures. My favorites at the moment are Thai, South Indian, and Greek food. I'm not much of a cook but I try.
If I don't have plans I usually try and catch a movie at a local theater; I am lucky to live near a bunch of great mainstream and art cinemas.
When I have plans I am usually hanging out with friends, catching a play in NYC or locally, happy hour with my coworkers, or catching up on reading.
Even after having braces I am still very self-conscious about my teeth.
