Age: 21. I was done with alcohol when I was 20 but I still like to go out for a drink with friends once in a Blue Moon (see what I did there?).
Gender: Female last time I checked.
Income: Nonexistent. I'm a college student but I can still afford food through this magical little piece of plastic called a credit card.
Location: I've been having a love affair with Los Angeles for the last 18 years. Vitamin D supplementation? Wut iz dat?
Political views: Somewhat in the middle. Liberal on some things, conservative on others. But I hate politics so I tend to stay away from it.
Race: Filipino (Asian), with some Chinese and Portuguese. But I'm very detached from my roots, unfortunately. Never met another Filipino Paleo-er, although Filipinos do love coconuts and cooking food in pork fat. My grandfather was extremely fit (lived to be 92) and looked like Jon Hamm when he was younger.
Religion: Catholic. There are some things I don't agree with but I still go to church every Sunday like a good little girl *cough.*
Currently living at
home while attending college, but
purchase all my own food and pay
bills for utilities / phone / etc...
I make it work.
My home is in
Berkeley, California, a few blocks
from the Downtown area. Close enough
to hometown markets, farmers'
markets, and establishments like
Whole Foods and Berkeley Bowl.
Politics is touchy... I would say I
usually vote democrat, but am not
hardcore left. I can see the
weaknesses of either side's argument
and usually (unfortunately, in this
age), pick what I believe to be the
lesser of two evils.
I am caucasian -
Irish/Hungarian (flavored with a
small mix of other backgrounds) by
Religion is also something I
usually don't like going into just in
general, but I currently consider
myself an Agnostic Christian
Interesting idea. It looks like we're all pretty young so far. I really like the idea that our generation may bring a growing percentage of folks who will no longer accept the conventional wisdom that has been offered to us. Personally:
