Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Music/movie/book nerd/geek/enthusiast with a newly rekindled lust
for life and a desire to experience everything, even though
prodding may be needed at first. Sarcasm surrounds a tender heart,
which in turn is fed by arteries that pump ink and glass and
exports, through arteries, unusual childish glee and
Comfortable socializing until the early hours and staying in for
days at a time. Board games and beer are two of my hobbies, only
sometimes are they not connected.
I've been several people in my life so far, but I think I like the
person I am now the best. Even if he fills out dating profiles like
a pretentious asshole.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working in the editorial and communications field in a freelance
capacity, which gives me plenty of time to learn about a lot of
little different topics for a short period of time. Eventually, my
head's going to get too cluttered with useless information and I'll

An ever-rotating list of the important and ephemeral. But, for now,
I'll go with:
Music - Radiohead, the National, the Mountain Goats, TV on the
Radio, Explosions in the Sky, Flying Lotus, and the Antlers.
Books - Chabon, Danielewski, Eggers, Klosterman, Salinger, Vowell,
Vonnegut, D.F. Wallace, Bill Watterson. I think I've slid back into
an "angry young man" phase. Yikes.
TV - Community, Parks and Rec, Archer, Breaking Bad, Venture Bros,
The Wire, Bored to Death, Mad Men, Game of Thrones
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think the deep thoughts... and about candy.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching "Arrested Development," re-enacting scenes from "Arrested
Development," and writing "Arrested Development" slash-fiction.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm either much more mature for someone in my situation or much
less mature than someone in my situation. I'm not yet quite sure
which. I squee too easily at cute animals but am not affected by

You're willing to go on an adventure. We may not all come back
