Infinitely-curious dog-obsessed music-loving reader seeking partner for spirited debate during walks in the woods. Or something like that...

In her own words

I'm smart, caring, funny and curious about the world, and looking for someone interested in people, life, music and social justice. someone who has had some adventures and is looking for more, but who also likes cozy, quiet times, and is looking for a relationship of passion, intellectual brinksmanship, exploring, reading, dogs and comfortable silences. I am passionate about politics, social justice, my friends, my dog, random trivia, the people I am lucky enough to serve as a social worker, my 95 year old grandfather, playing with babies, walking in the woods, swimming in lakes, and listening to music. I love books and music and lakes and rivers and Ethiopian food and skirts and discovering wonderful places around the corner that I never knew existed. I like trivia and long articles about esoteric topics and following random trails on Wikipedia and seeing what I learn. I love sea kayaking and want to do more in lakes, where I like to swim. I like sleeping babies and ice cream and midnight movies at the riverview. I like remembering, and trying new things. And then remembering them. Chicago born and raised but fairly well planted Minneapoliton--I have family strewn all over the country (Chicago, Boulder, NYC, Maine, Madison, PDX) who i visit often. I mostly love Minnesota but sometimes ponder moving to one of these other corners...I like traveling and have done quite a bit, but it is always more fun with a travel partner! I am a consumate bibliophile, lover of books and reading and libraries. I get the Sunday NYT delivered to my house and still read it in the same order I have since 6th grade. I spent five years between college and grad school living in communal houses, hopping freight trains and hitchhiking around the country, going to punk rock shows and doing community organizing. I had amazing experiences and made life long friends but am also glad that it is the past...mostly...I still miss a good train ride. And I'd be happy to explain why social work and hitchhiking speak to the same part of me ;) Now I'm in the next phase of this journey....I'm a social worker, working with mostly East African refugees in affordable housing. i love my job. I get to listen to people tell their amazingly interesting life stories all day--and everyone has them if you start listening--and help people navigate this maze of a world. I'm totally in love with my 2.5 year old boxer-pit bull Bessie. She's a rescue and I've gotten more involved with that community lately. We walk a lot, and play in lakes, and eat vegetables together. She loves bok choy and apples and broccoli but not mushrooms. I like ellipses.... (INFP if you give that any credence)
