My self-summary
Hey, my name's Jake. I graduated college, moved down to Fort Lauderdale for a job and then after close to a year I came back to the northeast. I'm active, played sports most of my life. I'm an aspiring writer and I love the movies. With that said, going out and throwing back some shots is never a problem. I'll be starting grad school in the fall. It'll be a long commitment (PhD program in English), but I'm very excited to get back to school after a couple of years in the workforce. Anyways, this is getting a bit rambly now, so I'll just call it quits.
What I’m doing with my life
I worked in sports media. I grew up playing sports and writing, so writing about sports seemed like the perfect marriage of the two once I graduated college and got my first job. I do like school, though, so I'm headed back to get my PhD and become a professor. The lifestyle just seems like a better choice compared to the grueling 24/7 style of a sports journalist.
I’m really good at
Writing (I think), helping people work out their problems, and maintaining thoughtful conversations.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my smile or my freckles.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is a tough one...I love Harry Potter books, but also Stephen King's stuff and John Grisham novels, and more stuff that I'll be working on in grad school, like Faulkner, Hemingway, Joyce and some philosophical writers like Sartre and Camus. As far as movies, that list would be waaaay too long. Shawshank Redemption is my favorite, and some recent ones I've liked are Skyfall, Argo, The Avengers, Dark Knight Rises and Lincoln. My taste in music is very eclectic and I love to eat and cook. That about covers everything.
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, books, computer, food and good conversation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where my career and life will take me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends at bars or going to the movies. Staying in to read a good book is also always an option with me, especially if it's been a long week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The Five Stairsteps "Ooh Child" plays on loop in my head when I'm bored.
