I am a graduate student who spends a great deal of time studying
civil and human rights. If anyone could tell me what exactly these
things are or how to turn them into a pay check, I would be
I've also lately been interested in rediscovering comic books,
pretending I know things about cycling, and getting my money's
worth out of Pandora's freebie plan.
What I’m doing with my life
I was answering rather personal questions on the internet in the
hope of meeting new people, but now I'm suddenly reevaluating this.
Thanks meta question.
In the long term, I hope to one day save (read: rule) the world,
but will settle for anything involving international law and/or
Middle Eastern politics in the interim. This has turned into

I’m really good at
Thinking of a worthwhile comment far too late.
Ninja edit several months later: I'm also really good at avoiding
questions that I don't want to answer.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told that I'm too quiet by people whom I've just met. I'm not

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A few that I've enjoyed in the last few weeks include
Spaceman, 100 Years of Solitude, The Looming Tower, and the first

Shows: I don't watch tv regularly. I wish I did.
Music: Depends on the day of the week.
I wish I knew more about this kind of stuff. If you have any
recommendations, please send them my way!

The answer to question two above, current events, if there is
something that I should be doing but forgot about (by choice or
otherwise), the modes of victim participation before the ICC, and

Lately, my Friday nights have been spent at home and studying.
Ideally, I would totally not waste them by play computer games or
When I'm feeling more social and don't have work, you can usually
find me awkwardly nursing a beer or cider in Adam's Morgan with
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm terrible at pop culture and probably don't know the band,
movie, or tv show that you are talking about. It's a curse, and I

Please me message me if I had accidentally a word in my profile, if
you have any State secrets for sale, or if you are bored but
