Oh hello! I’m Peter. I was born in the rad, rad city of Portland, Oregon. It’s a pretty dangerous place, not gonna lie. Every morning going to high school we would have to fight our way through the salmon swimming upriver to spawn. Also one time I forgot my bike lock and a bear stole my fixie. But it’s a beautiful city. If you get up early on the right fall morning, you may be lucky enough to see the yearly food cart migration rumbling through the streets, leaving a trail of smushed vegan cupcakes and spilled microbrews. Plus you don’t pump your own gas.
Anyway, now I’m a fourth-year student at Oberlin. If you run into me here on any given day, chances are I am drinking coffee. This is an activity that occupies a large percentage of my time. It’s possible, though, that I will be doing other things. I might be improvising for comedic effect. I might be dissecting a shark (this happened, for real). I might be cooking lentils. Maybe I’m even doing homework. Turns out Coffee Studies is not a real major, so I chose the next best thing: creative writing and neuroscience, a logical and normal combination with definitely a lot of overlap and real-world application.
At some point I intend to write some weird books and see if anyone wants to read them. Aside from that my life plan is pretty open-ended. Maybe I’ll try to go pro with this whole blogging thing. Speaking of which, why not read my blog? It’s right there. I think it’s actually pretty good. Go on.
