My self-summary
I have long prided myself on being someone who works hard to keep an open mind. I value the opinions of others even if I disagree, and I love to discuss a range of topics. By keeping my options open, I feel I can get the most out of life while having a great time doing it. I come from a somewhat traditional mold but have been expanding beyond it to explore new experiences.

I was a history major in college, so being in Boston was a real treat. Last year I served in AmeriCorps, based in Denver, doing activities from mentoring schoolchildren, restoring a historic cemetery in Houston, promoting energy efficiency in Grand Junction, CO and serving as a first responder to the Joplin tornado in Missouri. That program substantially broadened my understanding of the world. So too did the semester I studied abroad in London. I'd love to return someday, and do more traveling as well.
What I’m doing with my life
Studying for the bar exam, then try finding a job for a legal aid organization.
I’m really good at
Word games like Boggle, Scrabble, and Bananagrams; karaoke; puzzles; trivia and trivial knowledge; and playing music by ear on the violin.
The first things people usually notice about me
People notice that I love learning and try to put my knowledge to some use, but learning for its own sake is entirely acceptable as well. It's also observed that I'm a very hard worker, hold myself to high standards, and maintain the belief that I can always learn something new.

The six things I could never do without
Music, video games, Wikipedia, the dictionary, the outdoors, my friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Passing the bar exam, why I find pigeons intriguing, and why I eat so many canned goods.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the bar with friends, or staying in playing video games or listening to music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know a lot about chickens, because my family has had an egg business for about nine years.
You should message me if
You think we could hit it off with a great conversation, or you love having discussions ranging from basically any topic imaginable. You are someone who takes an interest in seemingly unimportant things.
