I'm the most joyous cynic you'll ever meet. We're all doomed, but I'm still pretty stoked on life.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching high school by day and bartending by night. Currently trying to minimize anything that won't help maximize potential travel plans. Getting outdoors and leaving the city as often as possible. Still getting my sweaty mosh on when I can. Nerding out on a daily basis.
I’m really good at
laughing at my own jokes, my job(s), cooking breakfast foods, pointing out someone who looks like someone else, recommending music, playing with dogs, making cats love me because I ignore them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm quite shy and quiet, especially in large groups of people at first, which almost always translates into, "I thought you were a dick when I first met you."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like books about history, mostly. Also sci-fi, although lately I've been reading more poetry and Vonnegut. So far, Breakfast of Champions had me "yes!'ing" the most.
Bad Lieutenant 2 is the greatest movie ever. I also like TV - Seinfeld, Frasier, GoT, Hannibal, Leftovers. I watch just about any sci-fi/horror release.
Replacements, Mewithoutyou, The Sidekicks, Jeff Rosenstock, Joyce Manor, Minor Threat, etc. Most of the shit you all listen to.
I'm happy to say I've not eaten meat in three months, so there's that. It's been far easier than I'd have ever expected it to be, except for the fact that late-night food almost always fails to translate into vegetarian food. I do eat the occasional piece of fish, though, but I'm working on getting rid of seafood from my diet. No, this does not mean I'm impossible to go to dinner with. No, I'm not sanctimonious. Yes, I'd like to someday embrace veganism.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee, booze, old clothes, Indian food, dry tomes about history, Henry the pug.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether I'm being too serious about shit, moving away from the city, how much I love the city, focusing on love and acceptance, hiking, death, if I should download Instagram, teaching teenagers, how to save the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Serving booze to Brooklyn's finest drinkers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love disco. The best Kiss song ever is a disco song, too.
You should message me if
you've made it this far without rolling your eyes. Also, if you want to go hiking, if you want to listen to Joyce Manor with me, if you want to start a band and begin the revolution.
