the world can be saved predominantly through dance parties and
Actually, I learned the world doesn't need saving at all.
Now, I poke and prod people, sometimes set them on fire, and force
them to drink nasty herbs. But everyone feels better after.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Nodding sagely, expounding on seemingly-absurdly-tangential
theoretical perspectives on everything and anything, sarcastic NY
humor and wit.

Cooking yummy comfort food from my indigenous and adopted cultures

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Community (family & friends)
2. Love (all the joy, heartbreak, melodrama, and frustration of
your larger communities, in easy take-home size!)
