My self-summary
I'm not sure I believe in a self summary ...I'm 32 rockin some braces ;)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a therapist at a high school. I have my masters in clinical social work. Im blessed to be doing something I love and to be in a profession where growth and continued learning is a must. I work hard and play hard, and if it's possible to chill hard, i do that too.
I’m really good at
listening... loving...eating...sleeping...critically thinking.. and laughing at myself
The first things people usually notice about me
i dunno, depends on the context.... people usually comment on my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
True Romance is my favorite movie of all time. Quentin Tarantino is the shit.... comedies that make me laugh till I wanna pee my pants are rare but appreciated.
I don't really like stupid romantic comedies, but a romance with a good sex scene is always a go.
I really like the movie Requiem for a Dream.
I've seen Goodfellas like a thousand times, literally.
You can't go wrong with documentaries.

Reading: The Philosophical Mind of The Baby, Autobiography of Malcolm X, A Thousand Splendid Suns, Parable of the Sower, Teaching to Transgress, Borderlands/Fronteras, A People's History of the United States

Music: currently playing through my headphones is a playlist with: The Roots, Erykah Badu, Zion I, the Beatles, Tribe Called Quest, Pink Floyd, Damian Marley, Dangerdoom, Otis Redding, Van Morrison, J Dilla, Allison Krauss, Mos Def, Nirvana, The Pixies, Little Dragon, Common, D'Angelo, Nina Simone, John Coltrane, Wisin y Yandel, Aventura, Frank Ocean. If you can hang with that hella ADD playlist then I like you already. I was raised to love all kinds of music, so there's probably a song I love in any genre... but I love to dance and hip hop is what makes me wanna move.

Food: I will try ANYTHING. picky/unadventurous eaters annoy me. I love sushi, cheeseburgers, pasta with buttery white wine sauces, ice cream with grilled bananas butter and brown sugar, blt's, a good steak (especially in Argentina), choripan, pho, pozole, enchiladas, tacos, hashbrowns, over-easy eggs, bread and cheese, pretty much any and all fruit and veggies.
The six things I could never do without
family, friends, good food, good sleep, passion, and perspective.

the other six things i can't do without: butter, hoop earrings, warm sunny days, dental floss, touch, laughing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the beauty and ugliness that exist simultaneously in the world, how such a dichotomy came to exist, how relative/subjective the definition of beautiful/ugly is, and what it all means. i think a lot about social justice and all the ism's in the world. I think a lot about how to dig myself out of the grind and manifest more movement and creative expression in my life. I think a lot about my endless flaws. I also think a lot about needing to not think so much.
On a typical Friday night I am
friends. bar. dancing. music. art. couch. my bed. movie. whiskey..it's a toss up, but a combination of any of the above will do
You should message me if
you feel so inclined.
