Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Above all else, I have fun. Sometimes at your expense.
I'm prone to radical cosmetic changes.
I'm pretty big on really intense conversations at the moment.
Mostly because I'm fucking horrible at small talk. I can tell how
you're doing. We both feel the weather. Both our jobs are boring.
Let's cut the bullshit and talk about something that matters, like
our collective mental health or why quantifying happiness is the
essential downfall of our generation.
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. 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
Sometimes I drink and play board games with friends. Other times I
drink and watch movies with friends.
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.
Pretending to be serious.
Shaking my head, turning to a stranger, sighing, and whispering,

My loud and discomforting laugh.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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
