My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have lived in Seattle for the past eight years, after hurriedly moving out of small town Washington (specifically Tenino; my condolences if you've heard of it). I am a college graduate with a BA in English and one of those hopeless people that actually want to do something creative and interesting with themselves (more about that in 'What I'm Doing With My Life' section).

I was raised in South Africa before the booming 90's drew my family out of that deteriorating place and into the dribbly, wet arms of the Northwest. We officially arrived in the promise land during 2001 (so, really, we had missed the boat).

I had been an avid musician since the age of 8 and continued to explore different sounds after arriving in the US, until a break from that medium occurred at 18 (I have since returned to music). Writing has been a long time passion of mine and I continue to beat myself up over silly little nuisances and obscurity.

It's pretty easy for me to switch gears from a quiet night in to an adventurous night out, and vice versa. As a result, I'm not sure whether I'm outgoing or introverted. My mood can be a bit whimsical with some consideration given to the responsibilities of tomorrow. If I'm being self-congratulatory; I would say that I'm blending a variety of good experiences without burning myself out. If I'm being self-effacing, then I'd say that I'm making questionable decisions and I need to get my life together. In a nutshell; your basic range of self-reflection.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a pretty busy and active person in the Seattle art/music world. I book and host two reoccurring events, as well as offering support in a number of different ways (audio/video documentation, promotions, booking assistance, DIY venue aid etc). My primary artistic medium is writing, however I also create video collage works, ambient soundscapes, charcoal and graphite drawings and play the trumpet.

As a bi-product of all that hard work, I need to maintain a day job. My time is fairly split between freelance writing and working at the EMP.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hell, I don't know. I'm still figuring out what I'm good at and what I'm potentially good at.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know, I've never asked. My eyes? The pidgeon circling over my head? The anomaly of seeing a tall white male in Seattle? It really depends.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm a big fan of Joyce, although some contemporary writers have taken my interest (' A Fraction of a Whole' by Steve Toltz is a pretty amazing book). I'm fascinated by Korean cinema, although outside of that my tastes aren't that unique (the generally appealing Apatow comedies, blah blah blah). British win the 'Shows' award in my book, although HBO, Showtime and AMC are producing some great things. My preferred foods change frequently and can range from 'I have time on my hands and an urge to cook', to 'I'm broke and the microwave is working'.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
SOME avenue to express myself
Friends (corny as it sounds, it's true as anything)

I'll let you know when I need more than that to sustain myself.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Quirky character traits. Where I want to travel to next. People I haven't spoken to in awhile that I want to catch up with. Aspirations. Good memories. Awkward memories. Odd circumstances as expansive metaphors on life - with a grain of salt (sexy, right?).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm not working then I am assuredly out. 90% of the time I'll be at a show, however sometimes I will venture off with some friends to a place we rarely visit in order to avoid the Capitol Hill weekend crowd.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
On OK cupid? Well... nothing. That's pretty much the point of something being private.

You aren't bored yet.

Update: I've realized how unadorned my profile is with adjectives. I specifically avoided the "I'm a _" phrases when it came to self-boasted character traits. This was probably not a great idea and there's a good chance that my profile will come off as a snarky, arms length resume. This is my little acknowledgement of that.

If you write this off as an awkward aversion to overly simplified definitions of people then you are a saint.

Also, what is an Activity Partner? Do people scout new members for their Monday night bowling team on here or something?
