My self-summary
From the midwest (the place from which everyone's proud to be but not necessarily stay) and have lived in New York for many years. I teach in BedStuy and love my summers to travel. Friends are important and I have good ones. I like to be outside as much as possible, so the winter's not my favorite. I think it's important to know things and I'm always trying to learn more. I know that should be a given, but it's not.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching (or at least trying to). Playing with my dog. Crocheting a blanket (at any given time there's atleast one in the works). Learning to play the banjo (slowly). Inserting parentheses into sentences, apparently. Going to shows. Cooking. Trying to talk myself out of the house when it's cold, and coming up with new outdoor excursions when it's warm out.
I’m really good at
Grammar, so that dangling preposition up there bothers me. ( I'm actually not a grammar wiz but i do hate a dangling preposition.) Listening to music. Reading books. Watching movies. Pickling things, even though Portlandia has given me shame about it. Arguments. Cooking food. Running around with friends. I like to work in my garden but that doesn't mean that I'm good at it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think its the scar on my shoulder from a bike accident but most people say its my hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV:
the wire, arrested development, walking dead, the killing, game of thrones, hell on wheels, parks and recreation, sons of anarchy, mr. show, homeland, breaking bad, it's always sunny in philadelphia, band of brothers, generation kill

Movies:
breakfast club, heathers, to sir with love, stand by me, suburbia, the outsiders, sid and nancy, rushmore, mallrats, blazing saddles, friday, don't be a menace to south central..., zoolander, 28 days later, full metal jacket, half nelson, office space, sleepers, raising arizona, pretty much anything by the coen brothers, john waters or christopher guest (though i don't think i've kept up with the most recent)

Books:
in cold blood, executioner's song, good soldier svejk, into the wild, endurance, me talk pretty one day, running with scissors, zeitoun, kaffir boy, power of one, confederacy of dunces, geek love, catch 22, the stranger, no exit, Fahrenheit 451, any Vonnegut, Orwell; I usually prefer non-fiction, lately.

Music:
alphabetically skipping around my ipod (let's see if we can get at least one from each letter): avett brothers, bad religion, billy bragg, bob dylan, carter family, chordettes, the clash, deer tick, the descendents, dinosaur jr., eddy arnold, fugazi, grandaddy, husker du, interpol, jawbox, jawbreaker, johnny cash, joy division, killers, lumineers, misfits, neutral milk hotel, new model army, old 97's, pogues, radiohead, sebadoh, sam cooke, shellac, smiths, sonic youth, thatcher on acid, this mortal coil, velvet underground, wire

Food:
I really hate the term "mostly vegetarian". I feel like that is something you either are or are not. However, I guess as a means of shorthand, that "mostly" describes what I eat. But don't worry. I quit eating meat in middle school so I don't find it interesting to talk about nor do I care what you eat.
The six things I could never do without
I could probably live without most things except a GPS. I have a horrible sense of direction. More importantly, here are some things I could definitely do without:

goat cheese (I keep trying to like it, but it tastes like athlete 's foot and everyone thinks it's the most amazing thing and I'm a philistine for not liking it...I just don't need the hassle.)

emoticons (I hate the idea of them and what I assume about the type of person who would routinely use them but I know they can be tempting.)

the obsession with apple products (I get it. I have a lot of them, too, but who cares?)

small talk (that's primarily because I'm not good at it)

bathroom selfies (Come on now. What does that say about you?)

Birkenstocks (Most man sandals, for that matter. I have a real fear that I might start dating someone in the winter and not find out for months and then I'd have some serious soul searching to do.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...what I am going to eat for dinner.
...how to get rid of the static when I listen to NPR.
...why people say "irregardless".
...how to get home when I'm lost.
....where writers get their inspiration.
...punctuation.
...updating my resume.
...how people can play multiple instruments and sing at the same time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think inappropriate things are funny.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 30–48
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
...you're smart.
...you're opinionated, but can still have conversations and change your mind.
...you like to do things just for the sake of doing them (especially outside things or things that require getting in the car and driving out of the city just to go somewhere new for a day).
...you are sarcastic, or at least won't be offended by my excessive sarcasm.
...you know a lot about music (I know some but I love discovering new music; not necessarily recently recorded, but new to me).
...you're just as happy staying in on a Saturday night as you are having a rowdy night out.
...you don't have temper tantrums when shit happens (like if we break down in the middle of nowhere on the way to somewhere important... blah, blah, you get the point).
