To love deeply.
Moved to Amsterdam from Ohio 5 months ago. Studying Social Policy and Social Work in Urban Areas at the University of Amsterdam. Just beginning to work on my thesis, and will attempt to learn Dutch during any free time. Am currently thinking creatively about how I can stay in the Netherlands as long as possible if the labor market won't have me.
Besides studying and unsuccessfully planning my future I laugh a lot, listen to a lot of music, drink coffee with friends, try to soak in the beauty around me and enjoy anything aesthetically pleasing, and am trying to love people well...among other things.
Creation, recreation, redemption, hope, peace, truth, life. Words seem to fail when describing a personal philosophy...but really I just want every piece of my life to matter.
Learning, laughing hard, dark coffee, dark chocolate, music, collaging, riding bikes, good conversation, sending/receiving mail, reading, slow mornings, exploring cities, short stories, playing with kids, crossword puzzles.

Teach, Learn, Share
Want to learn: Dutch, to play violin (or any string instrument really), to make sushi. I can teach: how to fold origami peace cranes, tap dance, and...surely something else.
