I am out of my element right now; spending weekdays in Cumberland for my studies. BIG culture shock. (More so than many exotic locations I've visited.) Learning to be more accepting of people who have very traditional values and lifestyles.
I really like nice things, but I am working toward being content without a lot of possessions.
In desperate need of someone who likes to cook... I want to learn to prepare a wider array of meals.
I spend a lot of time skipping. (Sometimes I gallop, but only when I feel fairly certain that no one's watching.)
I shaved my head 3 years ago. I had dreadlocks in college.
My bedtime reading is usually some sort of textbook.
I am relatively bossy and most likely a huge pain in the ass.
What I’m doing with my life
Doing a technical forestry program Mon-Fri and working during the weekends. Trying to focus my interests in a forestry-related field, whether it be the park or forest service, research and data, private consulting, etc. Or just experiment with all of those for awhile.
Pretending to fall out of my chair.
Trying to decide where I want to move once I finish my program. (Can I live 5 places at once?)
Enjoying an apartment to myself but listening to a lot of TEdTalks. It's too quiet here.
Learning how to be a good mother to my joint-custody kitten
Making A's in my classes while still maintaining class clown status.
I’m really good at
Reading people. Noticing little things. Embarrassing myself to cheer someone up. Interacting with animals. Finding the good in people. Choosing the perfect song for any given moment. Absorbing information. Breaking a barrier with a stranger. Identifying trees. Spotting critters. Packing and planning. Speaking up for myself.
Also I'm a gear nerd and an outfitting extraordinaire.

Things I wish I could be good at:

Gardening
Math
Sewing
Startling people
Getting up in the morning
Playing banjo
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, and whichever fanny pack I'm wearing. (If I'm wearing a fanny pack.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Eloise
Movies: Best in Show
Shows: Summer Heights High
Music: See me directly.
Food: oysters
The six things I could never do without
Good food. GPS. Barefoot shoes. My pruners. A headlamp. I'm going to combine my last few things into one because I feel like it: NPR, my ENO hammock, my brother, Dr. Bronners
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next trip, cross cultural birthing practices, donuts, cave art, intentional communities, coming-of-age ceremonies, surviving on a desert island, farming
On a typical Friday night I am
Making inappropriate jokes.
