Adventures, Conversations, Good Times
Okay, let me confess this up front: yes, I used to be a pastry espionage agent. Yes, I smuggled samples of flour and melted chocolate; yes, I shamelessly videotaped the baking of bread; yes, I stole the cookie from the cookie jar. No, this never bothered my conscience one bit. But occasionally I found myself in a hard place Ė forced to rub out an ťclair or two. The scream of custard shooting from beneath my shoe: thatís what gives me nightmares.
Now Iím a doctoral student at the University of Washington, studying climate change and interning at the EPA over the summer. Glitz? Glamour? Intrigue? Perhaps not as much as in my days of espionage Ė you try bribing customs agents with chocolate chips, if you donít believe me Ė but now I get to help make the world a better place.
Before I moved here, I spent seven years as a nonprofit environmental advocate, including five as the ED of an organization I founded out of college. Itís something Iíd like to do again when Iím finished with my degree, so if you know anyone with more charitable contributions than they know what to do with, send them my way.
I know who I am, what I stand for, and what I want to do. And as Iíve gotten older and more mature, Iíve come to feel more deeply that love and understanding and tolerance Ė caring about the person next to you Ė is what gives life meaning, and that it both represents and enables the very best in us. Itís a feeling that continues to shape my life, and guide my efforts to grow and develop as a person.
At the moment, Iím looking for anything: new friends, dates, partners in adventure. Who couldnít use a few more amazing people in their life? So if you love good conversations and enjoy good times, letís have some.
What kind of person are you attracted to? People who don't need to be "completed" but want to find someone to complement them anyway: self-reliant, independent, free-thinking women who, like me, would nevertheless love to find someone who understands them, challenges them, fulfills them.
What's something you want to do but haven't? Make homemade ethiopian; try truffles; fly in a hot air balloon; get high on oxygen; stain glass; watch whales; circumnavigate the Olympics via bicycle; master photography; dye my hair blue; try hypnotism; camp in a tree house.
