Environmental causes are really important to me and so far I've focused my education and work around energy and the environment. I really liked Captain Planet when I was growing up and I guess haven't stopped.
I'm very much an extrovert, and enjoy the outdoors, all Boston sports, good puns, coming up with fitting names for things, and making people laugh. In friends and relationships, I really value kindness, sense of humor, a love of nature, and spontaneity.
It's been many "winters" in California, but I still can't shake the habit from growing up with seasons to make the most of it when the weather is nice. I also like rock climbing and try and climb with friends indoors a couple days each week.
Over the past year I've been teaching myself guitar, and I'm finally getting the point where I can hold my own when playing with other people. I'm very excited about this.
*not sure if I'm actually good at this, or if it's that I exclusively make appetizers with cheese
Books: Two of my favorites I've read recently are The Amazing Adventures of Cavalier & Clay and The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. One of my all time favorites is Ursula Le Guin's Earth Sea series. And, full disclosure: total Harry Potter fan.
TV is good. I usually like comedies and I'll always watch an episode of Parks and Rec. That being said I finished True Detective Season 1 recently and it was phenomenal.
I don't watch as many movies as I should. I'll watch any movie that isn't overly gory or horror.
Burritos (mostly serious about this).
