My self-summary
I used to study biology. Now I'm in law school because I thought it would be a more effective way to make change. I actually enjoy it oddly enough, but I still miss biology.
I have frequent bouts of save-the-world-ism followed by a suspicion that I'm becoming a self-righteous jerk followed by near-total pessimism, and then I cycle back again.
I love animals. I'm an environmentalist and a feminist, and my politics are far, far to the left. I love being outdoors in real nature (not the park, although parks are ok and all), especially, especially the ocean. Being in the water always makes me feel much, much happier.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in law school right now finishing up. I'm mainly interested in fisheries law and ocean governance issues, which is sort of a niche field, so I'm trying to figure out how to get a job doing that sort of thing. I'm also trying to get back into doing the things that really make me happy: wandering outdoors, meeting new people, playing with my cats, thinking about planning another organic garden, traveling (snorkeling trips are in the offing).
I'm single again, so I'm interested in dating, and I would also like to meet more people and make some new friends since many of my friends are moving away.
I'm getting more involved politically now without doing the party-election drive sort of thing, which I've gotten very cynical about, but instead advocating for issues that are important to me. This has been making my life interesting lately. I am very worried that I like the fast ups-and-downs of lobbying a little too much. I keep checking to make sure I haven't morphed into a suit.
I'm also remodeling my house right now, so that keeps me pretty busy, and in the meantime, looking for fun things to do in the remainder of the summer.
I’m really good at
listening, daydreaming, becoming best friends with other people's pets, being patient, reading a lot at the last minute and pretending that I am totally an expert on the subject (law school), alternative medicine, laughing at the weird shit people do, wading right in and speaking my mind without considering the social consequences (then bewailing said consequences)
The first things people usually notice about me
I laugh a lot (or so I'm told--it just seems that so many things are unintentionally funny).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
spicy food, songs I can sing really loudly to in the car, currently obsessed with Engrenages (Spiral) on Netflix, Burning Your Boats, the Poisonwood Bible, any David Sedaris, Henry James, the Hours, the Red Tent
Six things I could never do without
my cats
the ocean
really bright sunshine
my pink jacket that makes me feel like a superhero
close friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I want to do with my life and whether I am doing the things that truly make me happy.
How to do the most good with my time/the things I choose to do, and whether I'm getting too cynical or just wiser.
What animals I would most like to be. (Hey, it's fun!)
How people can possibly believe the most egregious shit--nature/nurture?
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with a few close friends. Sometimes sleeping (I am in law school). Planning the food I'm going to cook after I re-vamp my kitchen that weekend (which then never happens).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I get super mad at someone, I imagine challenging them to a samurai sword duel.
You should message me if
You're left-leaning politically and value-wise and want to talk to me.
You like snorkeling/scuba diving and want to advise me on future trips.
You want to babble passionately about vegetarianism, slow food, or the latest healthy eating craze, and have some pro-tips for my next organic garden.
The two of us
