I'm pretty easy to get along with. Laid back, but passionate when passion is called for. I'm sarcastic, sometimes to a fault. Compassion, courage, and authenticity are things I admire and try to embody.
I had a short lived career in my 20's working as a political and union organizer, but in the end it just wasn't for me. Incredibly rewarding at times, but draining. I currently work in finance (It's not ideal, but I'm not complaining), and plan to eventually head back to school to pursue a journalism degree. I'm also making small strides towards starting my own business.
I live on Eat Street with a roommate. It's a great neighborhood.
I can cook well, most of the time.
I like to listen to NPR and drink coffee (or sometimes Bloody Marys) on Sundays.
I smoke cigarettes on occasion. It's a horrible habit and I plan to quit, but am not looking for someone who nags (too much) about it.
I think about joining a gym. Haven't yet. I'm always up for a bike ride or run in the non-winter months, though.
Ok, there's a lot more, just ask.
As far as music goes, my library is vast and varied. Sometimes I listen to the Current, other times I'm blaring a jazz, classical or opera Spotify station.
I love to eat/cook and will try almost anything. Spicy is good. So is bacon. Picky eaters annoy me, but that's certainly something I could overlook. ;-)
I just finished reading The Art of Power by Thich Nhat Hanh, a Buddhist monk and activist. I'm currently reading Plato's The Republic for a free online class offered by Yale.
