What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a project manager for a market research firm. No, it's not like
Mad Men. I'll never understand why I thought the field would be
shamanistic. Blame the advertising?
Trying to figure out that whole work/life balance thing.
Pondering if self-improvement is the goal of life, or merely a
Lining up some trips and things to do. I made a severe bucket list
when I turned 27, as a goodbye to my 20s. It tends to make my
friends in their 30s, cringe.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Having a sense of beer snobbery that goes down
*I think italics are super classy.
Developing an eccentric and quirky passion for odd things, like
esoteric Catholic trivia.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often have little to no sense of shame for an introvert.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Affectatious Coffee Table Books. Philip K. Dick, etc. I tend
to be reading a few books at time; including trashy pulp novels,
creative nonfiction and then what ever is getting buzz (Saunders,
Knausgaard). David Shields, Dave Foster Wallace, Mark Danielewski,
Movies: Films about the sort of sadness of pleasure, achievement
and entertainment and the sort of emptiness of what we thought was
going on. So basically Edgar Wright and Tartovsky films.
TV: Now that the Golden Age of tv is over...I guess "Rick and
Morty", "Community", "Bojack Horseman", "The Unbreakable Kimmy
Schmidt" and "Blunt Talk". I'll stop pretending, my
favorite show is Killer Karoake Oh, and I'll totally watch
Uncle Grandpa, Adventure Time, Stephen Universe and Pig Goat Banana
Cricket with my little cousins.
Music: HEALTH? My holy triumvirate is Nick Cave, David Bowie and
Tom Waits. I like Klezmer-influenced bands like "Man Man' quite a
bit as well.
Food: I cycle through asceticism to hedonism. During the week, I
eat almost strictly legumes and tuna. On Friday/Saturday I try and
got to one of Pittsburgh's Top 30 restaraunts and get a trappist or
an incredibly hoppy beer that most Europeans would call abortions.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Wednesdays having new comics and $5 sushi at Giant Eagle
That's most it. But if cornered, it'd also be
2. A sense of connectedness
3. Postmodernism is a hard drug to shake
4. Stimulation outside of a routine
5. Access to a good library system
6. The will to meaning.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How long I can sustain this level of "Happyish".
What's the best way to meet new people and get out of my comfort
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
10/2/2015--I'm sitting in worried that HBO is in talks with Zach
Snyder to make a Watchmen tv show.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been included in the acknowledgements of two books that
friends have written. I've also been the subject of a song by an
ex-girlfriend. I won't reveal if it's a flattering portrayl or
My family has the worst family crest imaginable.
I kind of actually liked "Anthem" by Ayn Rand.
