My self-summary
I love exploring the city, pretending to be beer savvy, and being in the company of good friends/grounded people.
I'm from CA originally and have been here for about a year - still in the adventuring mindset so if you'd like a partner in crime, feel free to message.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a phd student: it's a questionable life choice, but one I'm excited about. also, I get paid to think the big thoughts so that's kind of fun..
I’m really good at
dancing, spelling, listening, procrastinating, stupidly serious debates, bullshitting job interviews, suspending judgment, finding free things to do.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sparkling wit and winning personality...
My eyes - apparently they can't decide which color to be
And (unfortunately) I hear that I'm friendly...I'm working on the whole mean teacher thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
David Sedaris, Carson McCullers, Toni Morrison, the shouts and murmurs section of the New Yorker. Histories about race, class, and gender (my research deals with politics/culture in the 1960s-70s so bonus points if ya wanna geek out about that).
Great book I'm reading right now: Florynce "Flo" Kennedy by Sherie Randolph

I'm news-addicted and into politics.

Music:
I'm into a lot of different music.. hip hop, blues, folk etc. Love Van Morrison, Schoolboy q, sylvan esso, mavis staples, the list goes on...
Food:
I like it. when it comes to food, I'm into and up for, anything. I especially love thai and indian food.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:

1. contact lenses
2. avocado
3. beer
4. exercise
5. feminism
6. books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The prison industrial complex, the war on drugs, and the difference in pronounciation between Des Plaines and Des Moines. After almost 2 years of living in the Midwest, I still don't get it. Help me understand.
Also, the many different alt bros in the world: leftist bros, Vonnegut bros, feminist bros, manbun bros, brogrammers, design bros, eco bros, Bernie bros, etc (nothing wrong with em, bruh;)
On a typical Friday night I am
staging an impromptu dance party, finding a good dive bar, drinking in the park, going to a show/play/talk
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I enjoy buying rounds of alcohol for friends/acquaintances ... it makes me feel important.
You should message me if
you wanna do something radical.
Or, you wanna meet for drinks.
I know mary matalin and james carville make it work, but if you're not progressively inclined I'm not interested...
You're not bout sending generic messages commenting on my appearance...
