Is there anyway not to sound completely awkward in this section? I am originally from the Boston area but I took a seven year hiatus down in DC and I returned to New England for law school, which I have happily completed. I had a brief stint with lobbying when I was in DC, so some might call me a political dork, but in the tame, never bringing it up at dinner, just gets heated during Presidential debates, kind of way. On my free time I like hanging out with friends, sometimes that takes me out to a bar and sometimes that's just hanging out. I'm attempting to see the world (admittedly slower than I would like), which is only ironic when you see how high my anxiety gets before boarding a plane (next stop being Iceland). I have a tendency to be sarcastic, but I think its more endearing than mean...or so my friends say. I root for the Red Sox and the Patriots, and because a bit of my heart will always be there, the Nationals.
