Though quiet on the outside, you are often the hidden hero; someone who rushes in when needed and then after the emergency is over fades back into the woodwork. Because of this sense of duty and honor, you can also on occasion be rigid in your viewpoint and unyielding in the face of other ways of thinking. Usually cynical and rarely trusting of others, you maintain a small set of intimate friends. These bonds are stronger than most. You are always grounded in the present moment. Your close bonds can also lead to clique-ishness and a tendency to gossip about those who are deemed less worthy. You are an integrative thinker, collecting data from a wide range of sources and applying it to your worldview. You can become overly task-oriented. In stressful situations you often withdraw from the world to seek peace in contemplation. You often seem cold and withdrawn. Often you will withdraw rather than verbalize your discontent.
I’m back working as a canvasser with For Nevada’s Future and it has been great work to do again. Instead of political campaigning for Hillary Clinton and Catherine Cortez-Masto for senate in Washoe County, which was successful in Nevada and I’m very proud to have done the groundwork and to have talked to thousands of voters and being able to connect with real issues to families, It’s now a matter of canvassing against school vouchers in some districts of the county. This issue is important and I try everyday while knocking on my doors to make sure people understand that this bill is going to hurt schools and low income, working class families the most and benefiting the wealthy at their children’s expense. I’ve been getting mixed views, I lost someone when I mentioned I didn’t go to school here and that I’m from San Diego, which hurt me because I’ve been in Reno for a year now and have been working hard on this canvassing journey. I fear that this bill will pass and that the states will follow.
My other job is Dairy Queen and they basically pay me like $30 and ice cream everyday but I like it for now.
I have to work and study by myself for now, I’m earning money again which means I’ll be able to cover my small credit debts and work on going to school. A lot of work to be done !
It’s a blustery day in Reno. I’m finishing up my first courses in French and picking up Nocturno de Chile by Roberto Bolaño. It is tempting to give up my pursuits of knowledge now that I have a lame temp job at a warehouse and because my time alone to read is gone. But I will still be reading and attempting to learn languages as I go, hopefully going to school soon.
Follow me as I learn languages, read books, watch film and run a radio show-
