I never know what to say about myself. On my (website hidden) handle, I have: "I think, therefore I doubt." (W.E.Gutman in A Paler Shade of Red: Memoirs of a Radical), and on my(website hidden)profile: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways ... body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, "WOO HOO -- what a ride!"
I have accounts on many of the various social media, and my name can easily be searched (it is not that common)--either under Maya Conn or MVConn, especially if combined with the area in which I live--either Santa Monica CA or Los Angeles CA, or where I was born and raised, Hawthorne CA--or my university and workplace, U.C.L.A. In college I was a Near Eastern Studies major with an emphais on Linguistics and History, and I have a Juris Doctorate degree, so these reflect a few of my interests (as there's actually very little about which I am NOT interested).
Growing up, as my parents couldn't afford to stay in hotels, each summer we took a family camping trip (I have 3 brothers) to a different part of the western United States. From this I developed a love of travelling, which led me to live and work abroad in various European nations (and so can get by to various degrees in a number of languages, but none fluently) and to other countries as a tourist. I am a first-generation American and, when the subject arises, like to remind people that my father and his father were, technically, both so-called "illegal aliens". (They were from Canada, so people don't view it in the same way as they do immigrants from south of the U.S. border).
