Thoughts on OrangeSeeds:

It has been approximately 0.5 seconds since I joined, but I am obsessed with OrangeSeeds. Somehow they have selected a group of people that are exactly like me but have such different and interesting lives that somehow brought us all to the same place. Also, I love doing community service and school-sponsored events, and OrangeSeeds gives me a place to go where I can do that while also having tons of fun (and singing lots of great throwback songs).
