I'm a student at Eastern Michigan, majoring in Anthropology and Urban Planning.
I love: books, my friends, writing, photography, architecture, art, music, hiking, coffee, biking, good whiskey, and good beer.
....well, this is tedious.
I do hope to continue to grad school at some point, at the moment I'm hoping to eventually do U of M's Masters program in Anthropology or Creative Writing.
I spend a lot of time writing, mainly short prose-poem type stuff-- the kind of stuff there's probably no commercial value in, but it's what I'm good at. I'd love to pursue writing as a career, and I might someday. My writing probably says more about me than my Okcupid profile, so if you're interested I can give you a link to my blog.
Ultimately my 'mission' in life is to make the world a better, more beautiful, more just place. (As cliche and naive as that may sound...) I've worked in various environmental campaigns and on social justice issues, and I care deeply about a lot of issues-- I'm not a particularly 'political' person though...at least not in the usual sense.
In all honesty though, I don't put much stock in traditional notions of success, at least in the career/financial realms. Really, I want to be a hippie-farmer type with a farm in the middle of nowhere, some dogs, some cats, lots of trees and lots of sunshine. I want to be comfortable, yes, but mostly happy. It doesn't take much for me to be comfortable.
I'm pretty alright at writing and photography too.

I unthinkingly answered the Shakespeare question as 'where', instead of the correct 'why'...embarrassing, huh?
