About Me

I like running and science and I have no idea what I'm doing with my life. So I'm writing a blog or something.

Walking Walls, or how you can help a journey for peace!

My friend (and former awesome roommate), Kate, is raising funds to walk along physical, political walls to document the real, human divisions in the communities affected.  I'll let her explain:

Click here to help out, either monetarily or just to spread the word!

Fun fact: it was with Kate when I first started to blog.  We started a blog, for reasons I can't remember, while living together my Junior year at Carleton (http://shesrealfinemy409.blogspot.com/ if you're so inclined to read some ramblings of ours from 2009).

Reason #1 Why I Love Davis

*Note, the "#1" does not refer to the top reason why I love Davis; rather, it is the first post I've written on this topic.  And now for the reason:
