My self-summary
I have a pet narcissus plant named after myself, but I think it might be dying. I don't really take good care of it.

UPDATE: it died. It's no longer a potent metaphor, but instead representation of how I am not very good at plants. Nobody in my family can garden, nor can anybody in my family admit this to be true.

Actually about me, I guess. I'm a guy who moved to Chicago like a year ago, which at this point means I can't keep coasting on being new around here, even though there are totally tons of things I don't know or understand about this city/the Midwest as a whole.

I like spending time in coffee shops reading books, but also the places that you go to before and after the coffee shops. Bookstores, mostly. Ideally this is how I spend the majority of my time, but in actuality coffee gets expensive and also would probably kill me if I drank that much of it. So I do a lot of other things, and also have a job.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning as much as I possibly can about my immediate surroundings.

Constantly increasing the borders which define what my immediate surroundings are.
I’m really good at
I'm more of a jack of all trades sort of person than a really good at one thing sort of person. People tell me that I'm a good actor but those people aren't casting directors so I really don't trust them one bit.

I'm pretty lucky, too, but I tend to get the bad luck mixed in with the good. I don't mind it though, keeps things interesting.

Oh and once I won a state-wide competition for storytelling. That's a thing I'm good at probably. I'll tell you the story if you ask, even though I probably shouldn't.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, I overdress in shades of black and grey, and move too fast for most people to keep up. I only smile with one half of my mouth, which depending on my mood becomes a smirk or a sneer.

Most people just notice the tall thing though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My top three books, I recently decided, are American Gods, The Wanting Seed, and The Stranger. I think they describe me pretty well, but I read a whole lot of other things too. I also read a decent amount of nonfiction (generally history and mythology), but I don't form favorites there for some reason. Oh and like comic books, those are pretty rad. I read a bunch of those, because I'm totally not as cultured as I look (unless you don't think I look cultured, in which case I am significantly more cultured than I look, thank you very much).

I have recently finished reading Infinite Jest, which is quickly making its way onto this list (as well as making me into one of those insufferable pricks who really wants to talk about Infinite Jest, I know).

My top five films were written and directed by Shane Black, Rian Johnson, Martin McDonagh, Joel and Ethan Coen, and Guillermo Del Toro. See if you can guess what they are! Some of those are a lot easier than the others.

I only ever really watch television in fell swoops- the basic tenets of serialized entertainment don't jive with me- so I'm fairly unlikely to be watching something still currently being broadcast. I'm fond of Twin Peaks and Deadwood and Batman Beyond.

I'm gonna be one of those people who says he'll listen to any type of music. My favorite sort of thing tends to be indie rock, or maybe something else with the word indie in front of it or the word rock behind it. Top bands, typically, include Harvey Danger, Los Campesinos!, Tom Waits, Titus Andronicus, and David Bowie.

I've never really known what my favorite food is. I tend to eat a lot of hamburgers when I go out to eat, but I don't think they're my favorite food. I just like fancy burgers, and they are terribly impractical to make at home. Maybe coffee? Does coffee count as a food?
The six things I could never do without
Let's just make them all people. I like people. Or I guess books, those are pretty much the same thing (full of stories). Three people and three books, maybe?

But like, interesting books, if I've only got three of them to work with. Same goes for the people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things I want to write. I'm not a writer, but I think I'd like to be. Just, you know, not enough to actually be one. I'm more into ideas and thought experiments than concentrated effort.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to plays, ideally. Or the at home edition, getting drunk and watching bad movies on Netflix. That's an any night activity though, I try to get out on Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am terrified of oddly specific things. Like rabies.

Actually that is probably the only thing.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–28
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You have something to do or someplace to go in which you think I would be interested.

Or how about it if you have a dog and you want to let me play with said dog? I am pretty sure I miss my family dogs more than half of the people I left behind when I moved to Chicago.
