Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Rather than long, involved paragraphs, I will summarize with
bullet-points! Questions can always be asked and will always be
- I'm generally goofy and love to laugh
- I'm so blunt that I may be useful as a weapon in a zombie
- I'm a cynic, but also a hopeless romantic
- Grammar and spelling - they matter
- I'm a deep thinker, not a quick thinker
- Intelligent conversation makes me smile
- If you ask me a question, you will get an honest answer, whether
you want one or not - ask carefully
- I don't mind religion, but preachiness is a deal-breaker
- I am highly sarcastic
- I am a gamer, but not one of the obsessive types, and I
do not play MMOs. Games are fun, but hiking, pubs, and
in-person interactions are better
- I have tangible/achievable life goals, and am actively pursuing
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just achieved my BFA in Creative Writing in December 2013, and am
now attending Kingston University - London for their Creative
Writing MFA Program! After I graduate in 2016, I plan on settling
down as a teacher at a UK university, so this is a huge step in the
right direction for me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- I used to be an avid cyclist and intend to pick it up again
- I've been told I'm an excellent kisser. I can't verify that, of
course, but thought it was worth mentioning.
The first things people usually notice about me

- The mustache
- I give one hell of a handshake

Already time for the "Look at how intelligent, ecclectic, and
diversified I am!" section? If we must.
I bounce between things like Terry Pratchett's Discworld and Ken
Follett's "Pillars of the Earth." But typically, I read
Anything that's bad-ass, makes me laugh, or both. A recent movie
lineup was Die Hard, Ace Ventura, and Tangled. So... yeah.
The best possible way to explain my musical taste: On a recent
road-trip across the states, my best friend and I sang Foo
Fighter's "The Pretender" at full blast, followed soon after by a
mix of Disney songs. With the windows rolled down. And we knew all
That was a good day.
Yes! There are several exceptions, however - the big ones are
lettuce and onions. *shrug* Don't ask me why; I just don't like
'em. *UPDATE* I'm coming to terms with lettuce, but onions are
still straight out.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My sense of humor
2) A good book
3) Intelligent conversation
4) The light at the end of the tunnel
6) A sense of purpose
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The nature of life, the universe, and everything. I tend to focus
many of my ruminations on the human condition.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...complaining about how noisy the pub is? Working on one of my
novels? Both at the same time?
Since arriving in London, Fridays have been rather erratic.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wear my wireless headphones when I'm cooking and lip-sync and
dance while nobody's looking. Okay, they're often looking, I just
don't notice, 'cause dancing.
