Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It's difficult to know where to begin when prompted to make a
self-summary, so I'll be brief, and let the rest of the profile
prompts do the talking for me:
I'm a film studies graduate student. It's my passion. I don't make
movies, so much as I watch, think, and write about them. It's my
goal to be a college professor within the next few years, once I've
earned my MA.
As you may have guessed, that sort of major requires a measure of
nerdiness, of which I have in ample supply. If you don't mind a bit
of over-analyzing every now and again, read on!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Heading to Chapman University this fall to pursue my MA in Film
Studies. Professorship is my intended career goal.
I'm a substitute teacher. Also doing a bit of tutoring.
Free time and evenings are currently spent reading, writing, doing
a little gaming, and making the occasional social call.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've been told that I have a knack for the written word, as well as
Ice skating is a hard-earned talent of mine.
I'm fantastic at speaking awful Japanese.
Going on about nothing in particular, quoting films, and doing bits
that nobody in the room understands.
Several other things, but they're kind of abstract.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes, as they're sort of huge.
My voice, it's kind of really deep. Announcer deep.

(I could go on, but I think I've made my point.)
A tough subject, as film and media are my main areas of
I could go on about movies for days, so I won't even bother with a
list here. The films that made me fall in love with the idea of
filmmaking were the Indiana Jones trilogy. My tastes and
sensibilities have shifted, but damned if I don't still love those
The only TV shows I currently keep up with religiously are:
Game of Thrones
As far as older TV, the show that taught me everything I needed to
know about Media, from history, to industry practices, to tropes,
was The Simpsons.
I consider Firefly a religious text. Almost.
I'm a fan of the original Star Trek, and prefer Kirk to
Gaming is also a hobby of mine; I'm an avid tabletopper, and I'm
currently way into expanding my library of Steam games.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This is a silly prompt. Sorry to disappoint!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The deep, metaphorical meanings of The Haunted Mansion (the
attraction, not the horrible Eddie Murphy film). The parallels
between "Space Jam" and Michael Jordan's actual experiences. What
would happen if Wolverine and Batman were to be combined into a
single person. Archetypes. Tropes. Meta-Contexts. Dungeoneering.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If this question refers to Friday nights in a literal sense, I'm
usually just at work, and not staying out much immediately
afterwards, as I'll have to be there again the next day.
If you're looking for a more conceptual "the night before your
weekend begins" answer, I can usually be found either at a friend's
place, cooking, drinking and gaming the night away, or at a classy
bar-like establishment, eating, drinking, and talking the night
away. I don't care for clubs, for a variety of reasons.
