The only god I fear is the Impartial Universe.
I am Clay, Sentiment, and Fire.
I harbor a penchant for the strange, the wonderful, and the wild.
What am I doing with my life? I am scrutinizing it, pulverizing it with a mallet and clay-working the pieces of myself; stretching my limits while feverishly scribbling equations. I'm just journeying to find a balance between head and heart.
I work in IT, plan to go back to school for engineering, and dream of being a DNR warden. My new summer hobbies are kayaking and bird-watching (have seen two Green Herons so far!) and I've been fishing and camping about every other weekend. I'm a member of the Urban Ecology Center which offers a ton of cool volunteer opportunities that I enjoy-- most recently catching and tagging local monarch butterflies to track their southward migration. It's like being a kid again, only instead of calling it "playing outside" it's called "volunteer work".
+ I've also proven to have exemplary skill in obtaining head injuries

If you feel marginally compelled? That's generally a good place to start! Especially considering I'm not usually the first to strike up a conversation. :)
