Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This profile layout is really shitty. I feel like I'm applying for
a job. There is no worse question in human history than, "So, why
don't you tell us a little bit about yourself?"
Well, here's a fun fact about me: when I was nine I used to cry
myself to sleep because I couldn't cope with the inevitable onset
of my own oblivion. It led to a pretty early crisis of faith, and
now I'm so non-religious I don't even consider myself an

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend most of my time ignoring the howling, vacuous infinity of
space. Which is a poetic way of saying that I drink alcohol and
talk to friends about stuff.
Right now I'm also focusing on being a pretentious shitbag and
writing a stupid book that will never get published. Ask me about
it. To supplement this pipe dream, I work for a Hy-Vee distributor.
It's mostly soul-crushing, but I tend to revel in misery, so it
works for me.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
That shitty inspirational quote, "You only regret the chances you
A lot of people see that as an invitation to take more chances,
y'know? Like, it's better to try and fail, loved and lost, blah
blah... But everyone analyzes it from the perspective of knowing
that you missed a chance. Like, "Oh man, I totally should have
talked to that boy/girl when we made eye-contact at the orgy. My
life would be totally different." But I think the quote is saying,
"We only regret the decisions we didn't make, but we should be
regretting the decisions we didn't know we could."
What about the person who didn't make eye-contact with you at the
orgy? What about every possible permutation of every possible
interaction. What about the mathematically insignificant slice of
infinity we inhabit? What about the infinitely significant
trajectories our futures hold?
How do we rectify our desire in the face of perceived fate? Or
fucking universal perfection for that matter? Why are WE, these
fallible emotionally flawed shells, in charge of crafting
