Story
Tagline
a pessmistic idealist and expert procrastinator
Introduction
I'm a former figure-skater, high-jumper, 50-yard dasher and soccer player. Currently working at Harvard College and taking classes towards an Ed.M. I'm shy but opinionated, (an INTP?) and will post my thoughts on things I like, love and hate and will debate about all of it. Check out my +1's for everything in between. 

**some are asking for hobbies, interests, etc to better assist in placing people in their circles. so, while this is nowhere near an exhaustive list, and i'd really like to see everything you have to offer, here are my "dominant interests"!

Politics - National and International
Current Events
Strange news
Photography (i'm a complete amateur who just likes to shoot. friendly critiques welcome! :D )
Art (no specific kind, i like a feast for the eyes!)
Education (& reform)
Higher Ed/issues surrounding it
Interesting or innovative pedagogy
"Feminist" issues or news
Crass/inappropriate/tasteless (or tasteful!) comedy
Music - almost all of it.
Animals - funny ones, cute ones, ugly ones. love 'em!
Time-wasting websites
Shoes
Boston sports teams
Literature
Travel/places to visit/wonders of the world
....so there you have it. Circle away!
