Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a mess of contradictory things. But that's okay, maybe! I
could probably name a lot of them, but that would also mean a lot
of sentences starting with "I am. . ." and that's boring. So, let's
try to do that, but with varied sentence structure.
Before going to law school, I spent a lot of time just generally
being a "Cool Guy (tm)" (not to be confused with a "Nice Guy
(tm)!"). What does this mean? Well, if you asked a middle schooler
what was a cool thing to be or do, eventually you would get most of
the things I was doing. So, obviously, I was a glam-rock singer in
New York City for a while, in addition to doing lots of other
semi-professional music things. Obviously. I also taught yoga for a
bit, in addition to doing some freelance writing, a very small
amount of runway modeling, riding a bicycle across the country, and
also taught the LSAT for a bit (okay, not so cool). There are
definitely other things I did, but somehow, they escape me at the
moment. Now I'm in law school and am decidedly not as cool. But I
used to be cool, so, yeah.
As to what I'm looking for, I'm honestly rather unsure. I tend to
be polyamorous, but I also have a weird philosophical thing where I
don't think that there is such a thing as a "normal" monogamous
relationship; every relationship involves a degree of negotiation
about boundaries, and I tend to set my default a little farther out
than most. Of course, this recognition means that—like many other
things—this limit is negotiable for me.
I don't know how much belongs on here, especially give that people
might find it. But perhaps I should also mention that I tend a
little kinky. Maybe a lot kinky. If you need a label, "switch" does
pretty well. If this doesn't scare you off, we can talk in more
detail elsewhere. And by elsewhere, I really just mean a place
where it's not me typing into the void.
Also: sometimes radical, always feminist.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Update! I am in New York staring June 1st, for a few months.
Law School. It's a thing.
Also, my hair is shorter than it used to be these days.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Awkward but direct communication.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look a surprising amount like Patti Smith.
Or y'know, fill in the blank with some other famous person with a
similar hair cut (Jim Morrison, Mick Jagger, Neil Gaiman, etc. all
come up pretty often).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How unbearably important everything is, yet how colossally
insignificant anything we might call important must be.
If Colin Meloy recorded a version of "I Kissed A Girl" it would
actually sound like one of his songs.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Walking in to the shrink, singing a bar of "Alice's Restaurant,"
and walking out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am incredibly influenced by whatever I am reading at the moment,
to the point where I'm pretty sure I change basic life philosophies
Either that or that I'm current GMing a series of one-shot Tabletop
RPGs using a home-brewed system based on a major anime/manga. I
wrote a 30-page player's handbook.
