My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I order wine in dive bars in a beer town. I've grown to like beer.

I value sarcasm as well as empathy.

I am uncomfortable with so many "I" statements.

I'm pretty awkward. Also, often contrarian. For example, if you reduce yourself to a combination of four letters, I will tell you this:

Likes: the serial comma. binder clips. 3-legged dogs. dogs of all kinds. cats. cats of all kinds.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have sold cheese for a living, worked on a farm in Jersey for about 15 years (on and off), was once "in publishing" (whatever that means), but I suppose if this was a resume, I'd be forced to admit I recently earned an MFA in poetry. I now work at CSU and it's pretty great. Some days I watch "Golden Girls" and/or "Roseanne" reruns at the gym. This is also pretty great.

I'm trying to get back into yoga. As it turns out, I'm not that good at yoga. Also, is it wrong that I make yoga competitive?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
For whatever reason, this question makes me think more of what I'm not good at. Namely: cooking, organization, linear thought processes, fixing things.

That said, I'm pretty good at skiing (I grew up racing in upstate NY, so I can do ice), I have a love/hate relationship with running but I've become pretty decent at running 13.1 contiguous miles, and I can easily spend hours in a bookstore. I'm not sure if any of these qualify as skills. I'm ok with that. I'm also exceptionally skilled at choosing the longest checkout line at the supermarket. I've become much better recently at biking with a coffee mug in one hand with minimal spillage.

Oh! And puzzles! Like, good old-fashioned jigsaw puzzles.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Here's the thing - I love talking about things I love, but I honestly don't think it's all that important that those in my life love all the things I love. That would be boring, right? Anyway. The lists:

Books: The Dog Stars, The People of Paper, The Children's Hospital, Born to Run, City of Thieves, Kent Haruf fiction, some poetryish things like Bluets, That This, Hotel Lobby at the End of the World, Don't Let Me Be Lonely, Sir, Young Tambling

Music [caveat: this list is pretty old, probably dating back before my ipod broke about 3 years ago]: Andrew Bird, Magnetic Fields, Anne Murray (yes), Elvis Perkins & Deerland, Beirut, George Strait, Gillian Welch, Lykke Li, Lake Street Dive, Phosphorescent. I have an affinity for solid gold hits of the 70s. And I recently discovered a classic country station on the am dial (yes, if it's am radio, it's on the dial), and it's changed my life.

And this:

TV [I hope we're past the age of "I don't watch tv because I'm ideologically against it." There is some great stuff out there. And sometimes passive entertainment is necessary.]: New Girl, Community, Parks and Rec, Brooklyn 99, Bob's Burgers, South Park, Silicon Valley, Pete and Pete

Radio: Wait, Wait... Radiolab

Food: Yes. All kinds. Especially food I don't cook myself (which is to say cooking is not one of my special skills).

Movies: Next Stop Wonderland, The Station Agent, The Big Lebowski, O Brother Where Art Thou, The Future, Beasts of the Southern Wild
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
coffee. wine. cheese. music. my running shoes. words.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I recently bought a 20 lb bag of carrots at Costco in a moment of weakness while I was overwhelmed by the wonder that is Costco. So, I've been eating a lot of carrots lately, in an attempt to not waste vegetables, and I guess I'm beginning to question whether I actually like carrots. Like, I'm going strong on that family-sized tub of hummus I bought, and a lot of the carrots go in the hummus, so I know I still like hummus, but maybe I never really liked carrots in the first place. I spend a lot of time thinking about what to do with these carrots and also whether one single person should really have a Costco membership.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I recently cried my eyes out while watching The Fault In Our Stars. Sobbed. I assure you, I am not a 14 year old girl.

Ok, I finally got a smartphone. And I've taken selfies with that smartphone.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
***Please do not look at my profile (well, I guess you're already here) or message me if you are barely legal. I do not exist to satisfy your demeaning fantasies.**** have more to say than "what's up." Also, I don't really know how to respond to "want to chat?" Um... did you ask a question? don't have a soul patch. Seriously.

Please don't welcome me to Fort Collins. I've been here for over 4 years and I love it.

I'm not looking for a mirror image of myself. Teach me something. I like learning.
