My self-summary

What I’m doing with my life
Figuring it out.

Currently working my dream job as a Behavioral Instructor at a very special education program for autistic kids with severe behavioral challenges. It is NEVER BORING. I come home black and blue a lot. o.O

Planning a grand adventure to southeast Asia!

11/6/14 - quit smoking 22 days ago, went to the gym three times this week, voted. Feeling pretty morally superior.

Update 5/2/15 - still cigarette-free, still hitting the gym on the reg & seeing some appreciable progress, got some new ink in my passport. Borderline intolerable.
I’m really good at
Finding something to laugh at, even when it's looking grim.
The first things people usually notice about me

The six things I could never do without
Laughing, good company, my pets, adventures great and small, optimism via sheer dint of will, a sense of purpose
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The state of the world, pet nutrition, other people's woes, the trash island in the Pacific, where I want to be in 5 years, the inanity of the human condition, smashing the state
On a typical Friday night I am
Making the most of it.
You should message me if
Oooh, if you know anything about keeping a reef tank. If you were sad when you heard Howard Zinn died. Or if you just think you could inject a little positivity into my life. Can't have too much of that, right?
