I filled everything else out first, and decided that my summary will just be some facts. They might interest you, they might bore you. Who the hell knows? It could get long, so if you aren’t into long things, you probably aren’t into me. Although, I’m not long in the height division and perfectly happy with that. Not that I’m short, but I’m far from tall. (This is what happens when I try to write about myself I guess...bad jokes and double entendres, or vice versa.)
I am the most easy-going, generous person you’ve never met. Not sure where it comes from, but having two hippies for parents probably has a bit to do with it. It seems that is where my exceptionally long string of names comes from, as well. I have always gone by Harlan. It made the first few days of school super awkward since my “first” name was William on the roll calls.
I rebelled against it for a while, loving my strawberry nesquick and kraft singles, but came around in the end. I make a lot of things from scratch, at least to try once or twice. I can make killer tortillas, pizza, and I made my own sourdough starter. I am far from a hippie, though. I just have hold-out tendencies.
I’ve spread my wings many times, moved around the country quite a bit and have travelled. Good things have happened, shitty things have of course. I had a pretty killer summer job that let me play during the winters, and took me all across the West to boot. I have never stayed put long. I went to a family wedding in Connecticut one early December and ended up staying to work at an apple orchard until spring. I don’t think I can categorize anything about my life as usual, but I’ve held out in Seattle for about three years so far.
I think I’ll stop there. To be continued?
*Disclaimer: I’m mostly just looking for some new people, I think. You never know, though.
