My self-summary
I'm a student and straphanger (person who ride busses or subways all the time) from Seattle.

I'm wonky, nerdy and have a grand (if kinda utopic) vision of of the human race's future. It's like the good parts of the Expanse.

I'm INTP for those who care.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm thinking about grad school in a couple years but I haven't figured out what I'm going to do with it. Public policy research is my top choice right now, but I could see myself as a diplomat, bureaucrat, or in academia.
I’m really good at
- Reading, I have great reading comprehension.
- Public speaking, which was hard won by experience.
- Googling, I have strong Google-fu which comes in handy at school.
- Arguing, I don't necessarily like formal debates, but I thrive in discussion.
- Speculation
The first things people usually notice about me
Perhaps that I'm tall. I don't usually ask people what they notice about me so I don't know what they notice first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Fiction: Dune; Harry Potter; Scott Pilgrim; A Game of Thrones (Really the whole A Song of Fire and Ice Saga); The Name of the Wind; and V for Vendetta.

Non-fiction: Guns, Germs and Steel; Scatter, Adapt, and Remember; Thinking, Fast and Slow; A Theory of Justice; American Nations; Human Transit; Capital in the 21st Century; The Signal and the Noise; and A People's History of the United States.

Movies: The Big Lebowski, Star Wars, Seven Samurai, The Matrix, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Moon, Spaceballs (and anything else made by Mel Brooks) and The Princess Bride.

Shows: Firefly, Avatar: the Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra, Buffy (and Angel), Archer, Daria, Sherlock and all flavors of Star Trek.

Music: K-OS, Shad, Macklemore, the Blue Scholars, Timbaland, Trocadero, Gorillaz, Lupe Fiasco, The Fratellis, The Roots, Flobots, Adventure Club, The Beatles, Calvin Harris.

I've been listening to the soundtrack of Hamilton the Musical daily since it released. It always gets stuck in my head.

Food: Mexican (San Diego has spoiled me on this point), Sushi, Mac & Cheese, Hamburgers (Good ones, not gross fast food ones), Barbecue, Greek (especially Gyros), Chinese (especially Dumplings).
Six things I could never do without
- The internet. (I, like many, am kind of an addict.)
- A device to browse said internet.
- At least one interesting person to talk to, preferably several.
- A place to relax.
- Access to Books and Music
- Government (In an anarchy my most useful skill would be to start to form a government.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy, politics and economics. I especially love to guess what the future may hold for human societies. I have a blog about this stuff at http://astrosocialist.com/.

I'm still heartbroken over Bernie Sanders' campaign.
On a typical Friday night I am
I typically spend my friday's browsing the internet, reading or watching shows on Netflix. However I do get out occasionally and go to a bar.

Currently watching Riverdale and the Expanse.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have been hospitalized for an eating disorder which was interesting.
You should message me if
You are having a secular existential crisis.

I rarely see a girl make the first move and think it makes an interesting change of pace.

Also if you have any ideas about humanity's future I'd love to hear them.
The two of us
