Hi everyone! I switched to mostly posting via DW about a month ago, since it's easier to crosspost from here to LJ than vice versa. I try to be active on both.

NAME: Andrew

AGE: 34

ABOUT ME: Relatively new lawyer (just under 2 years) in Sacramento, California, running a part-time patent law practice while looking for a job closer to my aspiration of representing people with mental illnesses in civil rights litigation. Semi-professional violist, which is probably the one thing I'm most proud of because I'm self-taught on violin and viola. Former neuroscientist. Overall old-school geek. A bit of a news junkie. Living with depression, generalized anxiety disorder, and PTSD. Originally from Texas, grew up mostly in Dubai.

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: My favorite hobby is picking up new hobbies. Things that take up more time and brain space than others include music (classical violist and composer, jazz listener), soccer (played at college level, now just a fan and pickup player), progressive politics and policy, food and cooking, beer and wine, and coffee. I also tend to talk a lot about mental health, from both personal and societal standpoints.

LOOKING FOR: New and interesting people! People with similar interests. People with different interests. People who are works in progress. Mostly looking for people who talk about life; even though I love sci-fi and fantasy, I've never been heavily into fandoms or fanfic.

ANYTHING ELSE? I'm not the most consistent updater lately, mostly for mental health reasons, but I always post at least twice a week. I'm always going to post at least one update on life. And every Friday, I post an obscure classical piece I love, usually from an obscure composer.
