Now I know what hell will be like
I'm pretty granola, but if I ever start becoming a full-blown hippie, you have my permission to push me into a bottomless pit. Dammit, those people are annoying. Tonight I offered to help some friends prepare for a hippie film festival, and spent hours making chains out of paperclips because the organizer didn't want to spend any money on actual chains to hang the $500 worth of weird eco-friendly artwork she bought from a hippie art commune in Maine. And I had to listen to Ani DeFranco music the whole time.
I live in the land of Estoty with my sweetie, Richard, and our cat. I'm one of those mature (thirtysomething) students you see in the halls, the ones who make you think, "Well good for her, she hasn't given up on life yet, although she probably should."
My goal: to become a lawyer
