My self-summary
I'm a substitute teacher with grandiose aspirations of smashing the state through comedy (RIP Bill Hicks/George Carlin), travelling the world, and proving once and for all that Ted Cruz is the zodiac killer. I used to be something of a homebody, but travelling to Europe last year did a lot to change my mindset for the better. I took Spanish classes in Spain with other international students, walked through the streets of Las Ramblas, scaled the Eiffel Tower, and perused various works of art at the Louvre. Now, I have a newfound yearning for travel, adventure, and all that jazz.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently a substitute teacher in Emeryville, and exploring East Bay with my friends in the area. Current goals: applying to UC Berkeley for grad school and actually writing quality stand up comedy, as opposed to just pontificating the idea of it.
I’m really good at
Speaking Spanish, talking politics/history, Smash Bros., short distance track

On a typical Friday night I am
Being a third wheel to my two best friends in the following ways: either chilling at a random Oakland bar, walking through downtown Berkeley, or just chilling/watching random shit/reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Donald Trump is like a car accident for me: horrible and catastrophic, but I simply can't look away, and a part of me doesn't want the shit show to end. I concede that this makes me somewhat of a privileged shithead... c'est la vie !
