My self-summary
I've avoided filling out this profile since I joined, but figure it is now time. The format is a bit hindering, but you can't very well have any luck on a site like this with an empty profile, can you?

I grew up overseas, though I wasn't an army brat. I lived in Sri Lanka for 7 years and had the opportunity to travel throughout childhood. I miss this.

I suppose I'm pretty easy going. I try not to take life too seriously. Stress kills.
What I’m doing with my life
Who knows? I'm often thinking about it. Does anyone ever figure this out entirely?

I wish I could do something creative with my life at the moment - something that would allow me to move about freely. The thought of 2 weeks off a year and being stuck in the same place is a bit terrifying. Even if it is New York.

Aside from this constant struggle, starting law school in the Fall of '15 with the idea of going into public interest law.
I’m really good at
Understanding people. Being empathetic. Putting people at ease.

Accents (well, I like to think so).

My friends call me impish and sometimes insufferable. I just do it for the laughs. I'll do anything for laughs.
The first things people usually notice about me
I never ask.

The best (and I suppose, worst) things about me have to be learned.

I have been told that I have an "All-American/Corporate" look. I don't find that flattering. I can assure you that I'm not corporate in any sense of the word and try to beat back the All American stereotype.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Right now - Tenth of December by George Saunders and some depressing nonfiction - Slavery by Another Name and Naomi Klein's book about climate change and capitalism. Trying to work through Infinite Jest during my summer travels as I don't anticipate having time for much fiction during the school year.

I'm a huge film buff and always down for some moviegoing. I won't make a list (as that is impossible), but I'm open to anything. Hollywood just churns out a bunch of shit.

Shows - Again, a little bit of everything. List could go on forever. I like how this medium is changing, allowing for content that wouldn't previously have appealed to the masses on broadcast TV. Would definitely recommend Transparent to anyone with access to Amazon. Also, one of my favorites -- The Up Series. Look it up. It's great!

Music - Almost everything, I spend a lot of time on Spotify. Most recently -- Donovan, Vetiver, Foxygen, Townes Van Zandt, Inside Llewyn Davis and that genre, The Books, Beck, Leonard Cohen, Future Islands, Caribou, Animal Collective, Talking Heads, The Feelies, Elvis Costello, Pixies, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Cate le Bon, Alvvays, Joni Mitchell, Alex G, Mac Demarco, Widowspeak, Yo La Tengo, Bob Dylan's bootleg series. This could go on forever........

I rarely meet a food I don't like.
The six things I could never do without
The ability to travel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Finding a career that I'm going to enjoy and find fulfillment in.

Beaches in Asia.

Summer. Dreading another long, dark winter.
On a typical Friday night I am
At happy hour and seeing what comes aboot.
You should message me if
It comes to mind.

You want to grab a drink or go for a walk. I'm a lot more interesting than this profile will allow me to be. (I hope)
