Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is a weird, yet necessary, demand. To answer this requires a
self-evaluation I don't think I'm ready to share with others. Just
kidding. Like any procrastinator I decided to open up an old
account instead of finishing a paper that was due yesterday. I'm
super busy being a full-time student and working full-time, plus I
bike ride rather than drive, so I'm usually just home for sleep and
I'm out and about the rest of my lucid time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a student at utsa double majoring in philosophy and english. I
currently work with special needs and my goal is to go on to
graduate school to study library science. I love the idea of an
institution dedicated to storing and sharing information, plus I
really like how books smell.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading, occasionally writing (when the stars align), listening,
talking, playing with dogs, flying kites, and preparing for the
singularity, which of course has happened, will happen, and is
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes my beard makes me look like a latin Karl Marx.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
It's hard to choose favorites. I love science fiction but I'll read
regular fiction too. I especially love Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck
Palahniuk (not gonna lie, I had to google his name for the
spelling), Philip K. Dick, Thomas Pynchon, Ursula Le Guin, Camus,
Sartre, Kafka, John Wong, etc. I do tend to read non-fiction as
well, like Jon Ronson, compilations of philosophical pamphlets, and
Hunter Thompson (though he blurs the fiction/non-fiction line).
Occasionally I'll read some poetry. Sylvia Plath is my favs. Named
my pup Plath cause I found her in an oven.
I like most genres of movies but I'll usually watch a movie just
once. Movies I don't mind watching again: Snatch, Rock'n'Rolla,
Goodfellas, various horrors that deal with SATAN!!!, etc.
My heart beats to many rhythms but I mostly like rock and hip hop.
I do have a Jazz fetish and sometimes I like to surf the web or
read while listening to classical music. I'm not really a fan of
country and what spotify has labeled "cafe" music.
I don't have cable but I download shows and sometimes watch
I really like Mediterranean food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My dog, laptop, bike, bed, backpack, and the collection of
dwindling clothes I have.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How pointless everything is, but not in a depressing way. When I
started realizing every meaning is subjective the world started
becoming more comical. I also may be going mad. I say this to fight
going mad because one of the characteristics of a mad person is
denial of one's madness (or thinking it's everyone else who is
mad). Mad. What, me worry?
And chess. I play chess a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Studying and going to bed early to catch up on lost sleep.
Occasionally catching a live show. I'm a sucker for a good rock
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm illiterate and I don't really speak all the languages I claim.
I grew up all over this city but within 410, so I consider myself
very much a San Antonian. Junot Diaz often includes a nerdy
urban/ghetto/hoodrat/whatever character in his stories and that's
what I find myself relating to. A lot. Being in the habit of
reading global news can really take a toll on my psyche, so when
that happens I browse here:

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're bored, curious, would like to talk to a stranger, or found
hidden goods and need a partner in crime. I'm no stranger to the
law, so I'm down for a little bit of trespassing and hood rat
humbuggery. Also, if you truly are bored, as most internet
wanderers are, then I have a little corner for you:
It's nothing special, just a little weird.
