I'm from Los Angeles and have been in San Diego for the past six years. It is really quite the nice city in comparison to the City of Angels.
I believe myself to be a pretty open person and am more than willing to give anything a whirl. With that said, I consider myself to be a liberal feminist that is fairly politically active. Conservatives need not apply I suppose, though I am always happy to get into a nice little debate over coffee. Tis the point of civil discourse, no?
I am also passionate about music, film, literature and education.
I also love running, eating and talking. I especially love talking with a new person over a lovely meal!
I am not a fan of the oxford comma.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!
I also do LGBTQIA activist work at local high schools and am currently in the process of starting an alt-academic zine at SDSU.
Occasionally, I work as a substitute teacher in East County San Diego. While some may see this as teaching....it is often more survival. I still find it to be pretty fun!
I also tend to spend a decent amount of time with my mind in the clouds wondering what the future may hold. I am considering doctoral programs on the east coast in foreign policy at this point, but I would not be too surprised if that changed in the next week or so.
I haven't died yet, so I am pretty good at this life thing as well!
Also, that I often have a book in hand (currently reading Mao II and The Black Atlantic)
I am actually doing research on the Kanye West/Jay-Z album Watch The Throne right now. It is pretty funtastic.
