My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Right now I am a graduate student writing my dissertation (and writing in general), reading relaxing in the park near my apartment, and making the most of my very flexible schedule. I also teach literature courses which means I occasionally get to - or have to - act like a grown up.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Most of my time is spent reading and writing and thinking about how to become a better teacher - that is, how to inspire my students to look up from their iphones once in a while. A bit cynical yes. Well, I should admit I'm very cynical; this is probably why my friends tell me I need to be less George and more Jerry when I go on dates. I think a healthy balance of each is acceptable.

The following quote by William Hazlitt aptly summarizes all of the above: "So have I loitered my life away, reading books, looking at pictures, going to plays, hearing, thinking, writing on what pleased me best."

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I have quite eclectic tastes. I read everything I can get my hands on - from magazines (New Yorker, Harpers, Nation), newspapers (do they exist anymore?), novels, poetry, etc - but my favorite authors are John Keats, Henry James, DH Lawrence, and Wallace Stevens. Jane Austen as well, of course.

Right now I am reading James Baldwin's Another Country.

My all-time favorite movie is probably Dr. Strangelove although The Graduate is a close second. Swingers, Harold and Maude, Ghostbusters, and others would round out the list. Not to brag - but bragging nonetheless - I've seen all AFI Top 100 movies! This was an important life-event that got me going on the path I am on now.

Currently I've been listening to a lot of Leonard Cohen and Cat Stevens though the new Pharrell cd is great, but getting overplayed. I always turn to Sam Cooke and Smokey Robinson as my favorites and play lots of classical music when I work.

For food... everything. Italian, French, Thai, and Indonesian are top choices. I've yet to find authentic Indonesian food anywhere other than Holland. Ralph's is my favorite restaurant in Philly.

Are shows TV or theater? I don't own a TV so I prefer the latter.
