I'm wonky, nerdy and have a grand (if kinda utopic) vision of of the human race's future.
I'm INTP for those who care.
I'm currently dogsitting my roommates very cute dog.
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.
- 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.

- 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'm still heartbroken over Bernie Sanders' campaign.
I recently finished Star Trek from TOS to Voyager and Gilmore Girls and have moved on to House of Cards.
She should not have tried to be sneaky.
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.
