I moved go DC a year ago for a public radio internship, which turned into a public radio job. Now sometimes I work at night and drink in the morning and sleep during the day, which is interesting.
I spend a lot of time eating Beau Thai on my stoop.
I am fidgety and a little bit snarky. If I make fun of you, it means I like you.
What I’m doing with my life
I am: day sleeping, studying Latin America and journalism, tempering my cutting sarcasm with excellent hugs, public radio-ing, speaking Spanish, cutting regular sized flash cards into smaller flash cards, trolling for good eats, staying up late, revitalizing this one language, shopping at craft fairs and drinking a bottomless Bloody Mary at brunch.
I’m really good at
using my passport, scrambling eggs, procrastinating, foaming milk/making lattes, planning tropical vacations, snowboarding, drinking tequila slushies, eating pad thai (more than) once a week, navigating South America, finding budget hostels, being sarcastic, telling Helen Keller jokes, getting lost.
