About Me

I'm building a 200 sq ft home and starting a food forest. I enjoy talking about sustainable living, tiny homes, and equity. I eat plant-based and avoid added sugar. I like to play pickleball, board games, and improv games. I like simple things in life. Being on water, drinking dark roast coffee, and waking up to the sound of birds.

I'm passionate about reducing suffering in the world. Meeting everyone's basic needs. How we're all connected. How we may be in a simulation and why that would be alright. Why US citizens are due for another revolution. How peanuts go with anything.

"Imagination is everything, it is the preview of life's coming attractions."

Here are some thoughts that've oozed out of my mind via my fingers onto a bunch of ones and zeros to form some blog entries: http://drewdroppings.wordpress.com
