Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I used to study biology. Now I'm in law school because I thought it
would be a more effective way to make change. I actually enjoy it
oddly enough, but I still miss biology.
I have frequent bouts of save-the-world-ism followed by a suspicion
that I'm becoming a self-righteous jerk followed by near-total
pessimism, and then I cycle back again.
I love animals. I'm an environmentalist and a feminist, and my
politics are far, far to the left. I love being outdoors in real
nature (not the park, although parks are ok and all), especially,
especially the ocean. Being in the water always makes me feel much,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in law school right now finishing up. I'm mainly interested in
fisheries law and ocean governance issues, which is sort of a niche
field, so I'm trying to figure out how to get a job doing that sort
of thing. I'm also trying to get back into doing the things that
really make me happy: wandering outdoors, meeting new people,
playing with my cats, thinking about planning another organic
garden, traveling (snorkeling trips are in the offing).
I'm single again, so I'm interested in dating, and I would also
like to meet more people and make some new friends since many of my
friends are moving away.
I'm getting more involved politically now without doing the
party-election drive sort of thing, which I've gotten very cynical
about, but instead advocating for issues that are important to me.
This has been making my life interesting lately. I am very worried
that I like the fast ups-and-downs of lobbying a little too much. I
keep checking to make sure I haven't morphed into a suit.
I'm also remodeling my house right now, so that keeps me pretty
busy, and in the meantime, looking for fun things to do in the
remainder of the summer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
listening, daydreaming, becoming best friends with other people's
pets, being patient, reading a lot at the last minute and
pretending that I am totally an expert on the subject (law school),
alternative medicine, laughing at the weird shit people do, wading
right in and speaking my mind without considering the social
consequences (then bewailing said consequences)

I laugh a lot (or so I'm told--it just seems that so many things
are unintentionally funny).

What I want to do with my life and whether I am doing the things
that truly make me happy.
How to do the most good with my time/the things I choose to do, and
whether I'm getting too cynical or just wiser.

How people can possibly believe the most egregious
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with a few close friends. Sometimes sleeping (I am in
law school). Planning the food I'm going to cook after I re-vamp my
kitchen that weekend (which then never happens).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I get super mad at someone, I imagine challenging them to a
samurai sword duel.
