31 yr old blogger, Amateur Grant Writer/International Affairs hack/Thinker, and former Peace Corps Volunteer. I expect to be moving to NC, possibly next month. I laugh, cry, drink coffee, play my guitar, and wax poetic. I like to think of myself as a one man traveling museum, collecting little bits of the world and life in everyone I meet and everywhere I go. Sometimes I collect the "junk" and sometimes I hit gold, but at least I can say I did something with myself other then feed into the corporate mind suck that is being "average".

I'm a spiritual person and I'm also a Christian, but I don't really like the word "religious" as it's heavy on dogmatism. I don't preach to anyone nor do I like the Jerry Falwell's and James Dobson's of the world and their narrow and usually bigoted views of people. I usually keep my religion and my secular life private and I like it that way. I'm also a pacifist and might call myself somewhat liberal, though labels are usually faulty.
