My self-summary
Update: I have moved to NYC! Profile update to come...

This is giving me serious flashbacks to writing personal essays for college. The horror.

I am working on a law degree now but spend a lot of time thinking that maybe I should have just stayed a teacher (I used to teach PreK in DC). My plan is to take my law degree, go to Washington and try to dramatically change the quality of education in this country but sometimes I worry that even my passion/determination/stubbornness might not be even to change the system. I might very well ended up being an extremely over-education, debt-laden PreK teacher again but for now, law school it is. And yes, I go to Harvard. "What, like it's hard?" Reference, so I don't seem (too?) douchey:

Also, I really really like Bruce Springsteen. Like my other career plan is just to become a Bruce groupie.

Oh and I swear I do things for fun besides go to law school, brag about it and think about teaching.
What I’m doing with my life
I am now in Boston working on a law degree at Harvard. Before that, I worked at a charter school in SE DC where I taught a class of 25 4-year-olds.

When I am not learning about whether a tomato is a fruit or vegetable (see Nix v. Hedden), I am brunching, reading, dancing and looking foolish, binging on TV
I’m really good at
Wrangling a class of four-year-olds. Scoring good Bruce Springsteen tickets. Being funny both intentionally and accidentally.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sarcasm and as my four-year-old students used to tell me, "You're a giant!"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Anything by David McCullough, books about U.S. Presidents

Movies: Harry Potter, Almost Famous, Musicals, Documentaries. I'm willing to watch pretty much any movie once if it's not a horror film.

Shows: The West Wing, Sports Night, Studio 60, Law & Order: SVU, Gossip Girl, The Good Wife, The Ricky Gervais Show, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Mad Men, How I Met Your Mother, NOVA

Music: Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Elton John, Beyonce, Van Morrison, Patti Scialfa, Straight No Chaser, Jeff Buckley, The Killers, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift (no shame), Florence and The Machine, The Beatles, really anything...there is very little music that I don't enjoy, especially if it is being performed live.

Food: I'll eat pretty much anything
Six things I could never do without
My mom. My friends. Bruce Springsteen. Delivery. New Adventures. Passion.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The next time I can eat brunch.
On a typical Friday night I am
this must be a lingering tradition from my teaching days (you try going hard on a Friday after 10 hours with 25 4 year olds) but my favorite Friday night activity is happy hour (when I live in DC)/regular drinks bemoaning the fact Boston doesn't have happy hours (when I am in Cambridge) and then calling it a night. Saturday night is my go-to night for shenanigans.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I would like to be a greater fool...bonus points if you know the reference.
You should message me if
you want to travel the world and/or change the world, potentially with me!
The two of us
