My self-summary
I graduated from Guilford College in July '11, and I've stayed in Greensboro, trying to figure out independence and community.

I'm trying to meet new people and figure myself out in the process. If friendship becomes something more, great, but I'm not pushing for anything.

I'm usually pretty shy, but I'm always trying to break out of my shell. I really like listening to people and learning their stories - we have all lived a unique life, but threads of common experiences bind us as one.

I don't know what else to say right now - stand by for updates?
What I’m doing with my life
I am an AmeriCorps member right now, organizing programs for a community center where most of the residents are hispanic immigrants.

Trying to figure out a plan for after AmeriCorps, which ends in August. maybe they will find a grant for me to stay at the community center, or maybe I will get into grad school somewhere, or maybe all of the plans will fall apart and I'll do something else.

I also have a dog, Beauty and the Beast - BB for short :) She has lots of energy and we are trying to find productive ways for her to let it out.
I’m really good at
Learning new languages - usually. But I havent gotten very far outside the romance languages, so that might just be hubris talking.

I work with kids, so I've got a high patience threshold.

Sleep.

Singing... I like to do it in private as a cathartic practice, but I'm not terrible either.

Music: Gorillaz, Kid Cudi, Dante CK, Ani Difranco, Justin Timberlake, random mixes from my friends, whatever
Food: mango!, rice & beans, sandwiches, not too picky...

Water

...in that order...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How things get to be the way they are, how I'd like them to be, and what would need to happen to get there.

Los dinosaurios.
On a typical Friday night I am
Chilling at home, with or without friends, or looking for a party.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing. My private things are private for a reason.
You should message me if
you can handle big dogs,
you know how to chill out,
you're not looking for a threesome,
or if you know a good joke.
