Originally a Seattle native, I moved down to southern Arkansas after college to teach high school math. Currently trying to get the hell out of southern Arkansas because fuck, it’s the South.
I’ve been slowly coming out since my senior year of college, but my current location has forced me back into the closet! Ack!
Other than that, I love baking. Love to bake cupcakes. Dream about quitting the day job and opening a bakery. Also love crazy reality TV competitions (Survivor, Amazing Race, Top Chef), obsessed with the Food Channel, and with every crime procedural around. I love film as well, obsessing slightly about different directors and screen writers. Love to read (about the only think I can do for fun in my one-stoplight town).

PB and J
“When you feel in your gut what you are and then dynamically pursue it – don’t back down and don’t give up – then you’re going to mystify a lot of folks.” Bob Dylan
“We all make mistakes. We know we make mistakes. I don’t know any military commander, who is honest, who would say he has not made a mistake. There’s a wonderful phrase: ‘the fog of war.’ What “the fog of war” means is: war is so complex it’s beyond the ability of the human mind to comprehend all the variables. Our judgment, our understanding, are not adequate. And we kill people unnecessarily.” Robert S. McNamara
“If by a ‘Liberal’ they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a ‘Liberal,’ then I’m proud to say I’m a ‘Liberal.'” John F. Kennedy
