What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently a senior in the creative writing program at IUPUI
with a focus in poetry. I landscape for pocket cash, cook for fun,
yada yada ya. I like to get a beer or cocktail on Friday,
recreational mischief on Saturdays, sleep in on Sundays, etc.
I’m really good at
That whole "poetry" thing, ping pong, all that musical stuff, about
twenty other random artsy fartsy hobbies. I'm perceptive and give
great, logical, no nonsense advice. I personally refuse to believe
in that imaginary "friend zone" but supposedly it exists. In that
case, I probably make a better friend than lover; I have much
experience with that and am glad I have the friends I have made. I
make the luckiest shots in pool, can hold my breath underwater for
over a minute. Growing my hair? It grows so quick and curly; I need
to be in a certain state of mind to cut it.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair is a mess right now
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Rushdie, Bolano, Murakami, and good ol'
fashioned Mr. King. Some scifi: Orson Scott Card only (despite his
horrible homophobia and Mormonism). All those good poets: Halliday,
Hoagland, CK Williams, Olds, Komunyakaa, Adrian C. Louis, Sherman
Movies: French New Wave (like My Life to Live), all those cheesy
contemporary horror films (Otis, Rubber, Teeth, Parents, etc)
plenty of others as well but jeesh. . . not used to being put on
Shows: The Office, Moral Orel, pretty much the entire [AS] lineup,
Mad Men, etc.
Music: OFWGKTA (preferably Earl), Mountain Goats, Biggie,
Ghostface, The Beatles, Janis Ian (the best!), Prince, Ween, The
Back Pockets, Built to Spill, etc.
Food: um. . . mussels in an ale broth.
The six things I could never do without
My car and transportation (aka freedom)
The works of Yusef Komunyakaa
All my fine folks
Music and that cultural, artsy fartsy stuff (given)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
St. Rita? Entropy? All those oh so deep and omg I'm philosophical
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm high maintenance; I'm also a pseudo-academic/intellectual
coffee house poet (but no Bukowski, please).
You should message me if
. . . you're hungry and need something to do.
