Before I moved up here, I worked in Philadelphia on a project to improve end-of-life care for veterans. The work was a little morbid, and I think my sense of humor grew darker, but it was worth it. Before that, I studied at a small liberal arts school where I worked at several domestic violence agencies, conducted research, sang a LOT, and discovered mindfulness. I even spent a weekend at a Buddhist monastery. I also did a lot of theater/vocal performance and thought I was going to do it professionally at one point. Psych turned out to be a better fit. I get to think about human nature and make people happier without having to deal with stage fright.
Hm, what else? I'm a pretty big fan of marathoning Netflix shows, tattoos, and making dinners with friends. I've been described as amusing, confident, and quirky. I'd say that's pretty accurate. I've also been called "Zen," which I was pretty excited about, until I was told this is because I sometimes slip my shoes off under the table.
