I like the internet A LOT and lulz and reddit and all that. I like (good) dogs and will smile at them way before I smile at you while walking down the street. I am obsessed with museums,informal education and the history of (early-to-mid 20th Century) science and technology, especially the Space Race, because srsly wtf was that. I love Boston/Cambridge/Somerville and the insane mishmash of creative and talented people that live around here. I don't drive because cars freak me out in an OK Computer-album-art sort of way. I go through phases where I get fixated on certain regions of the world and I quell my wanderlust with crazy 4:00am 'travels' on Google Streetview and Flickr. If you want to talk about road signage in different parts of the world, HIT ME UP.
I am a humanist who struggles with cynicism, but I'm trying to do better with that. I'm not sure if I prefer the primary connotation to that word to be about the philosophy or the typeface style. Bonus points if you have a favorite humanist typeface that isn't Optima. I value passion, perseverance and proactivity, and I honestly didn't mean for that to be alliterative OR alphabetical. I don't believe in destiny and I believe we have a lot more agency in our lives than is commonly assumed. That doesn't mean I'm a libertarian. I like to make and I like to learn about how stuff is made. I like teaching and learning, and I think there's a big overlap between the two. I like working with the public, though only if I can marinate in Purell afterwards. I'm hypocritical about Purell. Don't use it. I'm into material culture but not really materialism. I have never been bored in my life, and I am often overwhelmed by the amount of things to learn or do.
So my "friend personal" goes like this: are you interesting? Are you interested in stuff? What? Have you lived or traveled to other places and want to tell someone all about it? Do you make cool things? Do you have that coveted 'eclectic' musical taste and wish that someone would listen to your perfected playlists? Are you an artist?? I yearn for more creative people in my life, srsly.
You know when you're drunk and you're blabbing at the person next to you about how you should totally hang out? Like omg, we should totalllllly hang out! This profile is an extension of that sentiment.
We should totally hang out.
