My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy deterring people from reading the rest of my profile by using poignant quotes to answer this question.

"The truth is you already know what it's like. You already know the difference between the size and speed of everything that flashes through you and the tiny inadequate bit of it all you can ever let anyone know. As though inside you is this enormous room full of what seems like everything in the whole universe at one time or another and yet the only parts that get out have to somehow squeeze out through one of those tiny keyholes you see under the knob in older doors. As if we are all trying to see each other through these tiny keyholes.

But it does have a knob, the door can open. But not in the way you think...The truth is you've already heard this. That this is what it's like. That it's what makes room for the universes inside you, all the endless inbent fractals of connection and symphonies of different voices, the infinities you can never show another soul. And you think it makes you a fraud, the tiny fraction anyone else ever sees? Of course you're a fraud, of course what people see is never you. And of course you know this, and of course you try to manage what part they see if you know it's only a part. Who wouldn't? It's called free will, Sherlock. But at the same time it's why it feels so good to break down and cry in front of others, or to laugh, or speak in tongues, or chant in Bengali--it's not English anymore, it's not getting squeezed through any hole.

So cry all you want, I won't tell anybody."

― David Foster Wallace, Oblivion
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently moved back to Chicago after attending university in Montreal for two years. Ultimately, my goal is to research the pharmacology and therapeutic potential of psychedelics and entactogens.

I'm currently taking a year off of school, working at a job I love, and trying to lead as meaningful of a life as I can.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Tying my shoes extraordinarily quickly.

I'm also good at parallel parking, photography, cooking, and avoiding small talk
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books:
Lately I've been reading a lot of non-fiction.

I'm currently in the middle of The Island by Aldous Huxley and The Archaic Revival by Terrance McKenna.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The feeling I get when someone walks by humming or singing the same song that I have stuck in my head

A healthy balance of yearning and fulfillment

A pillow with a cold side

That extra exposure or three that I can usually squeeze out of a roll of film

Having friends so good that it made it a bit difficult to live elsewhere, as I recently did for two years

A healthy balance of yearning and fulfillment

The physical communication of affection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
