One of my dream jobs is to be a travel writer. Although what I'm doing now is pretty great too, so I'm ok with it. But after I've made my millions as a nonprofit lawyer, I want to move to an island where it's always 75 degrees and sunny and open a bed and breakfast with my husband.
Soo I love traveling (if that wasn't obvious). San Francisco is my favorite city in the US; Barcelona is my favorite city in Europe; Buenos Aires is my favorite city in South America (I know, none of those are incredibly original, but I love them anyway). My favorite city in Central America is El Paraiso, Honduras--how's that for original?
More about me...I tend to say exactly what I'm thinking, which occasionally gets me into trouble when I'm not as tactful as I should be. I think this is partly due to my low tolerance for bullshitters. (Yes, I do realize the irony of me being a lawyer and knowing lots of lawyers but disliking bullshitters.) I love playing basketball, volleyball, ultimate frisbee, and the piano. I think I'm pretty funny, and I'm great at snarky one-liners, but I'm terrible at telling stories (seriously, my friends make fun of me, but I try anyway). I'm super independent and don't like when I have to ask someone for help or when someone over-explains things to me. I am equally happy watching a Broadway musical or a college basketball game. I tend to be 5-10 minutes late to many things...I think I'm still revolting against my dad, who thinks he needs to be 30 minutes early to be "on time."
I think volunteering and community service are super important, which is why my career is in public service. Every time I travel abroad, I realize even more how lucky I am to be living in the US with all the opportunities I have. I'm definitely not one of those people who says everything happens for a reason, because some things are just awful for no good reason, like, say, genocide in Rwanda...
I just moved to Omaha from DC, and I already miss DC something fierce, but I'm looking forward to meeting people and having a good time in Omaha!
