My self-summary
I like doing stuff. Outside stuff! I also enjoy books. And traveling bunches.
What I’m doing with my life
I've had more jobs than you. Mostly in natural resources and wildlife biology, but also scrubbing toilets, etc. Right now, I am an environmental/outdoor educator. I also go to grad school. And I hang out with my parrot.
I’m really good at
Road trips. Knowing a few words or phrases (usually not useful ones) in several languages, while being fluent in none of them. Stalking birds. A recently rediscovered talent in drawing. Parenthetical statements, run-on sentences, and comma splices.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know. I get "you're tall" a lot. Or "wow your hair is really curly."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Tacos. Tacos! TACOS!

Death metal and droning indie rock. I can't get enough Lord Huron right now.

Classics. Cartoons. Silly things. Sci-fi. Ingmar Bergman. This German movie called "Goodbye Lenin" which you should go watch right now. John Oliver.

All the books! Mostly nonfiction, currently about war and the Middle East because I don't know as much about it as I'd like to. Environmental books. Books I disagree with.
The six things I could never do without
Travel! A lot of people think it's pretty cool that I "have done" a lot of stuff in a lot of places. No. This is not a past-tense thing. Traveling is also part of my present and future.

A car, hate to say it.

Birds. Specifically, my bird. He makes blanket forts.

Convenience food.

Books.

Rigorous debate.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What if my arms betray me and for some reason jerk my steering wheel towards that tree and I careen off the road and hit it and
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing school work? Time has been a limited resource lately but I try to have fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I find mannequins highly unsettling
You should message me if
Looking for friends and stuff!

Not looking for one night stands, or a spouse.
