My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Some of you may laugh at me because you already figured this out, but I had a bit of an epiphany while I was working tonight. You know that annoying thing women do where they explain all their problems and then get mad at you if you try to help solve them? I get it now. It's all part of empathy.

I really dislike when someone tries to defuse a situation. Like, if I get mad at you because I think you're being petty and I call you out, don't fucking say, "I'm sorry," or change the subject. That's fucking rude. I have decided to be angry, and you're trying to make me not angry. You should, instead, help me be angry. Just like, if you're depressed, you don't want someone to come and cheer you up. That's patronizing, and a little arrogant. You just want someone to agree with you about how shitty and pointless life is.

So the next time a girl complains to me about Tina from accounting, I won't say, "Well maybe you should just avoid her." Instead, I'll say, "Tina sounds like a fucking bitch."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm focusing on being a pretentious shitbag and writing a stupid book that will never get published. Ask me about it.

Other than that, I go to open mic shows, work a shitty warehouse job, drink beer, play nerdy games, and enjoy a near-constant state of languor.

The rest of my time I waste beat-boxing at my roommate's dog until he starts barking at me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Picking up on social cues.
Making people laugh when they have liquids in their mouth.
Procrastinating.
Pretending to be serious.
Shaking my head, turning to a stranger, sighing, and saying, "White people."
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My biting wit.
My loud and discomforting laugh.
The stern visage of indifference.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I already said I'm pretentious, but in case you need more proof...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Pizza
2. Beer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Inane bullshit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying to write, but ultimately succumbing to my unyielding desire to watch some shitty movie on Netflix. Occasionally I can be found making fun of people at a bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never been able to watch The Goonies in a single sitting.

One time, instead of apologizing to a woman for cutting her in line at Fong's, I asked her, "Oh my God, did you tattoo your face?"

One time I drank gin from a plastic bag.

Sometimes I get really paranoid and think I have developed a lazy eye that all my friends are too polite to tell me about.
