Some things about me:
I suppose I could put my resume here. But instead, let's do this in fun-fact form:
I might be the worst kind of California stereotype. I went to USC. Twice. (B.S. in Music Industry/Peace and Conflict Resolution and M.A. in Specialized Journalism.) I am a sometimes-surfer who eats granola for breakfast (and, let's face it, sometimes for dinner). I play the banjo (badly), can light a bonfire, I've owned chickens, and yes, I have even home-brewed my own kombucha.
When I am not typing I am hiking, running, biking, camping, sailing, cooking, reading or trying to learn new "ing's" to add to this list.
Johnny Appleseed is one of my ancestors.
I was a classically trained pianist but these days all that usually means is I can fake my way through a Chopin waltz or the Moonlight Sonata, banking on the fact that no one is really listening that closely anyways.
Cookie Monster is my spirit animal.
I only fangirl about the muppets. And sometimes nineteenth century Russian literature.
I think this is my favorite thing on the Internet.
I think we should replace business handshakes with high-fives.
I should have been a pair of ragged claws
Scuttling across the floors of silent seas.
I listen to everything from Stravinksy to Snoop even though I tend to be a little musically judgey. But I am the first to admit my musical opinion is anything but refined. I am still hoping ska will make a comeback.
I don't think there's such thing as a bad pun.
I am starting to realize that this is becoming less of a fun-fact page and more of a #thesearemyconfessions page. Now you know everything about me so let's talk about something else.
