I am a graduate student. I moved to Madison a year ago. *I plan to be moving to Berkeley in the Fall 2015 for PhD*
I find that pleasure comes from forging alliances through a personal connection that is about making people feel comfortable as much as it is about making them feel special. I thrive to build collective communities. Some people find me to be laid back and not the one to create dialogue at first. Sometimes I can be a bit cynical but I believe that it can be useful and productive in various situations.
Like, I am into movies and hiking, but I never find the time to do either.
Because I teach, I would rather spend time shopping for coffee/tea under the stress of grading.
I am a friend, brother and writer.
I've spent time in relationships; I've spent time not.
Love has always saved me, perhaps in ways I least expected.
--I like fiction, non-fiction and poetry. All this means that I like narratives -analyzing the ways in which stories/plots develop, take significant turns, and mobilize us in various directions. I also like listening to and reading oral histories of people who embody stories of the past.
--I write, travel and teach. I love learning about things about which I know nothing at all and so every new project is usually about something about which I know very little -- but by the end I know a lot! I'm always looking for the next intellectual challenge.
--Some of the traveling I do is oriented around sites of attraction that speak to not just the politics of location and space, but also of people and bodies. All of us got a story, right?
Of course, I've found it to be a pleasure to read all the stuff that I like, in addition to getting funding to do it.
Other things about me:
...I do not follow a script.
I would like to be more structured.
I do not organically create goals. I would rather not know what the future will hold. By this same logic, I am able to be more imaginative and action-oriented in the present.
I like jogging and running under the stress of work. Music is my silent joy. I like to think that I'm a true friend, and sometimes it is hard for me to let people go. I cling onto what I desire, what I want, even when it's not good for me. Ok, that is not good, right? I like listening to others. I can be a source of empowerment for people who need someone to sort out their mess. I like cooking and cleaning. However, because of school, I find myself doing less of this.
I like listening to music and staying in tune with politics.
I find time to work out. Rather imagined, I am well-suited to break this rule.
I like planning trips.
So if people notice something about me, it would be that I come prepared and I got the memo for the occasion. bring the beer? sure. do I drink beer? not really. bring the baked goods? sure. do I bake often? not really. Rather stated, I think others notice that I am all about creating communities, in ways that it becomes less about me, and more about them.
6. Ask me______
Even more, reading, writing, production, art, aesthetics, sex, politics are all things I care about: that is, I think about creating a world where all these things can coexist without oppression. I'm forever searching/thinking about/wanting the utopia that is forever out of sight, out of mind, but somewhere and yet nowhere at the same time.
