I'm finishing up a degree in something really difficult, and I'm starting a new business, which is so neat it would blow your mind if I told you about it. It's too bad I can't yet. I'm also working on a book. Until it's done and undergoes a few editorial cycles, I'm not going to let you read it. I've got various other irons in the fire too, like learning guitar (I know NOTHING), learning to dance, etc.
I'm also not good enough for myself at anything. Perfectionism is a bitch. I tend to be a Jack-of-all-trades but still a master of a few. I have a terrible memory, though, and so in my skill juggling routine, as new ones get thrown in, I tend to drop others. I guess it's a by-product of loving to learn. Maybe that's really what I'm good at: learning anything regardless of how impossible it is and then forgetting it once the challenge is gone.
Books: Lolita, The Wee Free Men, Of Mice and Men, The Iliad, A Song of Ice and Fire, The Name of the Wind...etc. Oh and Slaughterhouse Five is clearly the story of a guy with PTSD and not science fiction, what the hell is wrong with you people?
Movies: Amelie, The Game, Moonrise Kingdom, Casablanca, Time Bandits, Lost in Translation...you know, stuff like that. I like them quirky and interesting. I loved the Hobbit as a book, but the movies turn my stomach.
Television: Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Elementary, Sherlock, Community, and Germany's Next Topmodel (don't laugh, there are few better ways to learn German than watching beautiful women say nothing complicated). Breaking Bad is the greatest show ever. I wanted to put Doctor Who on here, but after successfully converting many to its fandom, it seems to have run off a cliff.
Music: I'm eclectic as all hell. I tend to favor things that are visceral and allow for improvisation. I will say that I've not got much appreciation for electro or techno or whatever the kids call it. I like the subtle variations that come from a human hand doing something on an instrument.
Food: I'm all about fresh, good food. I'm going to eat things with gluten in them, things with faces, things that originated in boobies, and things that live on the bottom of the ocean.
But if you were to really corner me on this question, I'd put "iced tea" in there six times.
Don't worry, that just means I'm a guy. I am picky about who I have sex with, and I'm not really looking for hook up partners. Actually I'm really not looking for hook-up partners, but just in case Jennifer Lawrence is in town and using OK Cupid for a quick fling, I don't want to entirely shut the door.
Oh, but you might have to take a few of those answers with a grain of salt. I haven't updated some in a long time, and others...well others I went ahead and voiced the thing that many other people might pretend never happened. We can talk about my answers if you want the story behind any of them.
...you aren't: a vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free, republican, libertarian
There, those aren't impossible standards, are they? Fuck.
*Special bonus points if you: know any amount of German and want to speak it with me until we're so good we can talk crap about other people in public, want to learn to two-step or don't mind that I am crappy but want to practice a lot, love science and art, or have a billion interests so that sometimes it's hard to really do anything you like enough to get anywhere.
