I've spent a lot of my life feeling somewhat ambivalent about a lot of things, so I'm trying to be a bit bolder in my personal ideologies and outlook. DC seems like a good place for me to do this. Sin boldly!
If we get to talking, I will very likely want to meet you. You're probably super cool, right? You totally are, don't lie.
I also have sort of a side hobby project I work on, designing and publishing tabletop games. I've published one so far and I've got several more in the works.
I'm trying to travel more. I almost have the time. My volunteer work for PAX helps motivate me to keep moving. I'm thinking of relocating to Seattle at some point in the distant-ish future.
I've recently started making preserves/jams/jellies, and loving it.
Watching a veritable shit ton of lectures online.
