My self-summary
I'm passionate about politics, history, social justice and I love to talk, but you'd have to ask someone else if I'm a good conversationalist. I'm a very loyal person, sometimes to a fault. I try to live life in line with my values and this past year I've become a fan of buddist thought, not into the religion aspect-but geeze-who can't learn something from a society who has spent hundreds of years thinking about thinking? But...I don't like rules. I can be on time but I have to work at it. I do have a sense of humor about myself and about life, however wry. I've embraced what I've created in my life, good or bad. I don't like restrictions on my personal freedom but I also understand how to compromise.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm back in school for the long haul. Friends say I'm a bit of a geek but I don't know what they are talking about. I love artifacts, historical places and the natural world. I devour books and value intellectual and subversive discourse with friends and foes alike. I'm also quick to laugh and definitely have a silly side. (This is all just way too awkward.) I'm also reentering the dating scene. (Yup-definitely awkward) I'm probably not looking for serious just yet...but who knows...sometimes life can surprise us like that. In fact, not looking is usually when life does surprise, or so I've found.
I’m really good at
doing cartwheels
The first things people usually notice about me
that-I would say-depends on what you are looking for...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books...lots...but...anything by Umbert Eco, Mary Renault, Dorothy Dunnett, Dorothy Allison, Barbara Robinette Moss, Milan Kundera, Adam Hochschild, Colleen McCullough, ...blah blah blah

Movies....mostly the sad depressing kind like Sometimes in April, Pan's Labyrinth, The Stoning of Soraya M., Children of Men, but of course there is lighter fare like LOTR....

T.V...not a big fan but the British generally do it right, and let's not forget our own Stewart, Colbert, Arrested Development, etc...

Music...The Civil Wars, Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss and Robert Plant, Adele, John Denver, Cat Stevens, Mumford and Sons, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Florence + The Machines, Modest Mouse, Moby... it all...and love to cook it even more
Six things I could never do without
a good book, a good friend, a cup of tea, my car, access to information, fresh fruits and veggies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how not to think so much
On a typical Friday night I am
with friends, talking, laughing, debating, but I could also be taking a bike ride as I catch the sun setting over the river or home all depends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I like sugar in my tea
You should message me if
you've got a sense of humor, you can keep up, you're active and engaged with the world
The two of us
