My self-summary
I like to think of myself as a fundamentally good guy. I've never tried to hurt anyone on purpose, I try to give everyone a chance. I can get along with pretty much anyone. I was raised with a very strong belief in charity and compassion. I give as much as I possibly can, even if it is just a random compliment to a stranger. Anything to put a smile on someone's face.

I tend to gravitate towards the liberal, the counter-culture, the freakish, the outsider. Let's put it this way, I've never had an enduring friendship with a conservative, but I wouldn't rule it out.

I have an unhealthy obsession with literature.

I try to give myself fully to whatever inspires me, be it art, literature, music, film, etc.

Most attractive feature in a man: passion.
Least attractive feature in a man: arrogance.

Oh, and I love chick rock.
What I’m doing with my life
I received my Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing and Women's Studies from the University of Houston and had been teaching Freshman Comp at the University of Nebraska-Omaha until recently. I am now back in Houston redirecting my career towards teaching high school, primarily, and I am finishing my Master's degree in June, YAY!
I’m really good at
Trivia. Remembering things that no one else can remember. Patience.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my height and/or size, but hopefully my smile.

The six things I could never do without
1. Car (I live in a metro area, come on now...)

2. Poetry (My life would be empty without it)

3. Friends (What would I do with my time?)

4. A stiff drink (I'm not an alky, I promise...)

5. A place to purchase aforementioned stiff drink

6. Allergy medication (Snot is NOT sexy!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Vriginia Woolf. Love. Where I SHOULD be as compared to where I ACTUALLY am.
On a typical Friday night I am
At one of my favorite bars. Watching a movie with my friends. Just out somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can pretty much recite the script for "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion" word for word.
You should message me if
You can carry on a conversation.
