My self-summary
Text from a friend about my most recent house warming party, "Good times last night. U made good use of the space. Cool peeps."

Anything is fun with good company. But I enjoy snowboarding by myself and apres with friends. Oddly enough, I don't read books very much (I read periodicals more than anything) but I have good rapport with people who like to read.

Getting on a flight to go somewhere or showing out of town friends around the Bay Area are equally appealing to me. With that said new favorite out of state place to visit - Chicago. Current/Still favorite foreign place to visit - Scotland.
What I’m doing with my life
My first week in the Bay Area in 2005... I was eating Chinese food in Berkeley and someone had a sweatshirt with a quote that said, "We must become the change we want to see in the world".

I eat Chinese food and read stuff off of clothing.

Training for second and final marathon.* Ask about the asterisk.
I’m really good at
putting together IKEA furniture
knowing what I want
singing my go to karaoke song (and doing it bad every time)
crime (everyone's looking for partner in crime on here)
self deprecation
directions
remembering random facts (from NPR and podcasts)
Taboo
