I'm hopefully not terrible!
I'm a writer, but I'd much rather talk about music, movies, or those Marilyn Monroe t-shirts on Hollywood Blvd where she has tattoos and a belly piercing that terrify me.
What I’m doing with my life
I tell Lyft drivers that I work in finance so they don't ask follow up questions. Otherwise, I go to concerts and walk around Eagle Rock.
I’m really good at
-Off the beaten path jukebox selections.
-Ducking out of tourist photos
-Being 100% better at bowling if I'm drunk.
The first things people usually notice about me
My Boston accent comes out after about 1.75 drinks.
I have eyebrows that wiggle whenever Hot Chocolate's "Every 1's A Winner" plays.

I seem to go for bratty pop-punk, 40's crooners, and smoky-voiced female alt-country singers.
The six things I could never do without
Writing, Cape Cod, Dark Movie Theaters, Female Driven Punk Bands, Sad People on Facebook to Follow, the song "Steal My Sunshine"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who sucked out the feeling?
How "She's So High" and "Teenage Dirtbag" are essentially the same exact song.
On a typical Friday night I am
When I was filling this out, OkCupid gave some suggestions than asked me "how I get loose." I don't have an answer for that, but I thought I'd let you all know.
(The answer is I'm usually out. We're all young and alive!)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I fucking murder with limp bizkit and/or Michelle Branch at karaoke. I didn't capitalize Limp Bizkit because that's what ol Freddie Durst would want!
You should message me if
You're in a girl-fronted rock band that wants me to be a Stage Door Johnny (Extra points if your name is Josie!)
You want to compare High School-era Live Journals.
You think this is the greatest music video of all time:
