Working all week in the city, and spending a lot of time on the A train listening to podcasts and spotify.
Volunteering for a reproductive rights organization.
Picking up jogging again now that the weather is nicer ☀️ I'm planning on running the Queens half marathon in November, but am nervous, because it will be my first one.
Listening to too much political news. Fretting internally and externally about it.
I like to cook, but I enjoy it way more when I have someone to share the final product with. My most recent new thing I tried was homemade ceviche 👌
Teaching stuff to others. Talking about social justice and political issues at length with an open mind.
My fav TV shows are 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Master of None, Key and Peele, Bob's Burgers, and Inside Amy Schumer. I don't own a TV, and I'm SUPER happy about that (update: it's a few months in and I miss TV so much 😭)
(Second update: just like everyone else in the universe I love Game of Thrones. I also really enjoyed Search Party and how weird it was)
Music is complicated. I like a lot of it, but this one feels like the hardest to answer.
I'm going to list podcasts instead: Judge John Hodgman, slate culture and political gabfests, NPR politics, 99% invisible, the memory palace, reply all, ask me another, on being, radiolab, trump cast, pod save America, savage lovecast, this American life, and most recently I've been loving two dope queens.
I will eat almost anything that doesn't involve meat. I do love fish and sushi though. There is no button up top to say "pescatarian", but also I feel a little pretentious when I use that word.
3) Stirring Conversation
5) Hiking with friends
Intersubjectivity, aka how do we understand each other when we interact, and how it relates to my job but also my relationships with friends and family.
How to change people's minds about a variety of social issues. If that's possible at all.
You don't take yourself too seriously (that's my job! Kidding. Sorta.)
You find the idea of playing nerdy (German style) boardgames with me delightful.
You can read this and relate to it, or read it knowing that I relate to it, and that doesn't bother you. Even better if it actually makes you chuckle:
