My self-summary
It's always hard not to sound trite or creepy when filling these things out. Like everyone else I like to travel, go out and I have a wicked sense of humor. Unlike everyone else, I'm totally awesome and humble.
What I’m doing with my life
Just moved back to my hometown of Portland to do organizing and social justice work. I'm looking to make new friends to do all the cool stuff I can do now as an adult (Portland was mad boring as a teenager...there's only so many first Thursdays you can go to before it becomes a slow torture) and see how it goes from there. Also trying to figure out if this adulthood thing is really all it's cracked up to me. Sure the R-rated movies and booze are cool and all, but being responsible for stuff like students loans and waking up early seriously blows.

Ideally, I just want to contribute in some meaningful way to society but it's hard to do when you spent a chunk of time getting the first African-American elected as just seems like downhill from there (and yes, I might just be bragging, just a touch).
I’m really good at
You'll have to find that out for yourself...

On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
