My self-summary
I am kinda gradually updating this profile, and adding snarky editorial notes to old shit I haven't updated yet.

I've lived in Massachusetts since I was 14 [Ed - STILL TRUE], but I spent parts of my childhood in Texas and California, and now if I ever go the south or to the west coast, I unconsciously start speaking with those accents again and using words like "y'all" and "hella."

I am also a Swedish dual citizen, which lets me to go to Cuba and probably vote in Swedish elections, which is cool.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in biotech and finding the polarized moral pros and cons about it really disorienting to think about. Musing about grad school and trying to decide between an MBA and something more discoursey. Trying not to base that decision on this:

Also occasionally stumbling upon pockets of time to write shit, participate on an editorial board in Boston, help my mom with web design, and make goofy faces at dogs when their owners aren't looking.
I’m really good at
Strained metaphors. Doing a shameless sort of flailing sprint when I see that there are only a few seconds left on the crosswalk timer. Being a total conniving dick at Clue. Reading too much and then realizing I'm constantly narrating my life. Sneakily playing Game Boy at work.
The first things people usually notice about me
Direct eye contact, jokes, douchebag belt
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books
I have atrocious vision so "nose in a book" is only occasionally a metaphor for me. Books I like are things like Let the Great World Spin, A Visit from the Goon Squad, Asterios Polyp, Our Band Could Be Your Life, or anything by Dostoevsky or Thornton Wilder or Stephen King.

Movies
Once Upon a Time In America, Fantasia, Trainspotting, High Fidelity, Boogie Nights, Boyz N the Hood

Shows
The Wire, Justified, Louie, Deadwood, Battlestar Galactica, The X-Files, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Parks and Recreation, old episodes of Behind the Music and MTV's Fear

Music
Curtis Mayfield, Fucked Up, Pulp, Bill Callahan, Gil Scott-Heron, Lambchop, Drake, a few other artists [This year, "a few other artists" apparently just means ELO and Phil Collins and Toto's "Africa" and like, nothing else at all]

Food
A seriously concerning amount of oatmeal.
The six things I could never do without
I drink a lot of flavored seltzer. The addiction crept up on me but it's worse than coffee, which is the only addiction I can really compare it to. It's probably not worse than cocaine addiction.

My goofy jump-rope handle things. They're just handles with little weights on them. Nobody ever said staying in shape had to be dignified, right?

Bananas? Probably bananas.

ABBA, partially so that I have something to define my heritage and partially so that I have something to sing when my friends sign me up for karaoke without my knowledge.

Wikipedia, for combining learning with an instant-gratification overload and for teaching me like 75% of the things I know.

I'm gonna leave a placeholder here cause I have a strong feeling that one day I'll find a hat that I just go apeshit over.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How most of my Facebook friends are from that add-everyone-you-have-ever-met rush that happened when FB really blew up circa '06, meaning that my news feed is basically seriously extensive prep for my high-school reunion.

Aaaaaand the Taman Shud Case.
On a typical Friday night I am
Saturdays are my social nights, Friday nights usually run closer along the lines of "get home, exercise, shower, lie in bed with a book and my laptop and listen to Kool & the Gang and talk to friends online while occasionally staring at the book and trying to will myself to read it instead of passing the fuck out."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a freshman in college, I snuck into my next door neighbor's room while he was taking a shower, opened his laptop, typed the word "dongs" in the middle of his French lit paper, and snuck back out. He later showed the graded paper to my friends and me. There it was: "dongs," circled with a question mark next to it. I never told him it was me.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–25
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You know where I can get a good deal on all those Animorphs and Goosebumps books I got rid of when I was 13 because I thought I'd grown out of them and would never want to read them again. [This used to get a lot of responses from people who were really distressed that I had never heard of used bookstores, so I'm thinking of just leaving this here post-revision]
