Really just on here looking for friends. Most of my college friends have moved away, and I'd love to meet some new people to hang out with!
However, I'm currently very close to finishing my B.A. in Classical Civilization, hopefully with a minor in anthropology. I want to go to grad school in a few years, but I'm not sure yet what my course of study will be. I've considered classics, anthropology, political science, and few other, more obscure subjects.
I was lead field manager for the Cincinnati office of Grassroots Campaigns, a professional canvassing organization that does fundraising for several left-leaning nonprofits, (e.g. the American Civil Liberties Union, Save the Children). Currently unemployed, but hoping to get back into nonprofit work.

Books: I like what little Kurt Vonnegut I have read, (Cat's
Cradle is my favorite, also love Slaughterhouse Five and
Breakfast of Champions, just started Sirens of Titan). I
love the earlier Douglas Addams Hitchhiker books, everything by
J.D. Salinger, (I think I've read most of his work), Dharma
Bums, (Jack Kerouac), anything by James Herriot; also love
some of the "classics," like Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering
Heights, the Aeneid etc. I also love philosophy, the Tao Te
Ching being my favorite, although the Old Testament has some
pretty entertaining stories, and Camus' The Stranger is great
intro into existentialism, (wasn't sure if this better fit the
"fiction" or the "philosophy" category...same issue with the
Bible), the Symposium, De Rerum Natura, (Lucretius), and
Kierkegaard's work On Dread is on my reading List once I
finish Sirens. I also love books on history, especially the Roman
late Republic/early Empire, or the Tudor period in England. I also
enjoy poetry and plays; Sophocles' Oedipus trilogy,
Aristophanes, especially Lysistrata, Shakespeare, (not
a big fan of Romeo and Juliet...it's not badly written, just poorly
understood, overdone, and not his best work), Our Town, (makes
me cry every time I read it because I'm a sap), and Oscar
Wilde; my poetry tastes run the gamete from the Latin elegists
and epic-writers, (Vergil, Catullus, and Ovid are
probably my favorites, though Propertius and Sulpicia have
some good verses, too), to Shakespeare, (again), Emily Dickinson,
and more modern poets like E.E. Cummings, Max Ehrmann,
(really just Desiderata), Ani Difranco, Marge Piercey,
Sherman Alexei. and Pauletta Hansel. Just a brief
overview...there are many more I could list, but for this I tried
to stick to books and writers I've read multiple times. I love
talking about this stuff, so message me if you want to know
Shows: House, Archer, That Mitchell and Webb Look,
Monty Python's Flying Circus, Peep Show, South Park,
documentaries on ancient history or anthropology/evolution
