I've had this profile for awhile, and am only active in little spurts of time. A lot of what's written here is almost a conversation between myself, and myself after I've read what I wrote some months (or perhaps years) ago. So maybe this profile is long and pretentious for the right reasons? I have become friends with a few people through here.
I no longer have some of the habits I had when I was in college. For instance, I tend to wake up early, even on weekends. There is a guilt to missing the freshness of the day, especially while living in a city. I lived in New York City for a summer; now I live in DC, and I think the morning is the best time. Also, breakfast/brunch.
When I was younger I dreamed without color about immaculate European gardens. Blackberry bushes walled out labyrinths of fountains big and small, statues of classical figured angels, and birds. I danced and spun about as the autumn leaves placed themselves carefully on the exquisite fountains' pools. Although I only saw her in greyscale, there was also a girl there. She was something of a co-conspirator there, in my mind's refuge, innocent and friendly, patiently exhorting me to enjoy my childhood. I told myself that I'd find that patch of earth again, when I grew up. The colors would blend in with my understanding of the world, and the woman would be there, waiting for me after the years. I used to think that love was just a matter of sharing this space. Now I know it's more complicated.
The above is very abstract. To sum it up in a way some people might understand, I'm kind of a sweet geeky or dorky type. I watch too much tv on my computer and know too much about it. I can't decide if I look better with facial hair or without it, or if I should just trim to keep a constant base line. If I could live anywhere in the world it would be Sweden, because I studied abroad there and agree with the politics.
I was once on the Jerry Springer show, not that I get into fights all the time. There's an imdb page for me (unrelated to Jerry Springer), not that I'm famous. Also, I once won a dance contest during a minor league baseball game, not that I'm a good dancer.
I am honest, efficacious, and here for you!
