My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Contents: 1 standard-issue middle-class white male (self-cleaning).

I've just moved back to PDX for a new job. I grew up in LO and am very excited to be back. In the ten years I've been gone hipsters have taken over this town (you may have noticed); but I've always found them adorable--the more pretentious the better!--so unlike a lot of people I don't mind. On that note, I don't count anyone as a hipster who doesn't fixed-gear around the Pearl with a french press strapped to the obligatory messenger bag. Keep up the good work!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I subtly but irrevocably warp young minds through the teaching of East Asian Studies and Gender Studies.

I also hope to invent a time machine so that I can go back and tell my younger self to study China rather than Japan, because, jeez, that's all anybody wants to talk about these days.

Once I've done that I plan to check on the market for time machines. Having banked the bajillions of dollars that would no doubt net me, I'll pour myself a glass of $1000 scotch and consider the possibility that time travel has moral or cosmic downsides.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking for two or more people. Cooking a single meal requires too much set up and teardown for me, but I do love trying out recipes. On the other hand, I never actually 100% follow a recipe.

I'm also, maybe not "really good at" but "getting pretty decent at" pool.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll tell you what I wished people noticed: My beard is starting to go gray near my chin. "Distinguished" status, here I come!

Update: I just shaved my beard for the first time since I got back--and no one noticed--not even my own mother. So maybe distinguishment is further away than I thought.

On the plus side, shaving the beard makes me look younger. Last night I god carded at a bar--the sad part: I was ordering a ginger ale.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Shit that needs doing. By me. Or others.

There's a lot of it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
. . . finding out a litte about how Portland has and hasn't changed since I last lived here.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
. . . is that I should be grading right now.
You should message me if

Anyone interested in this, which is playing at Portland Center Stage?

"The romantic comedy classic Cyrano de Bergerac, in a fresh translation and adaptation by Michael Hollinger (Opus) and Aaron Posner (Sometimes a Great Notion, The Chosen). Set in 17th century France, Cyrano tells the story of a great swordsman with a beautiful soul, who is handicapped by a huge nose that makes him believe he is incapable of being loved by the beautiful Roxane. When he learns that Roxane and a handsome young soldier named Christian are infatuated with each other, he writes beautiful love letters for her suitor that lead to a tragic love triangle. Filled with swordplay and wordplay, Cyrano is beloved for its affirmation of love, friendship, and the power of a well-developed sense of humor."
