By popular demand of my Jewish friends, I have decided to join jdate (Jewish by association, maybe? maybe not...). Why not try it out, right? Although I am originally from Indiana, I recently moved into the Washington, DC area for my Master's program and plan to continue on to a PhD program in Psychology working with kids. I studied religious studies and psychology at the undergraduate level, and have developed a very firm belief system based on faith/spirituality rather than religious orientation. I love to laugh, have a good time, read when I have time, and generally enjoy life.
