I'm going to work in a fish cannery in Alaska this summer. So at
least I have the next eight months figured out
What I’m doing with my life
Not sure how, but while not paying attention, I suddenly found
myself in my third year in Saint Louis. I cannot stand it here, and
never want to leave. Hmm.
Also I'm going to school very slowly for biology, and pretend I'm a
writer and a musician to the fella on the other side of the mirror
I’m really good at
Handstands, talking all night about everything, and or nothing,
starting and joining bands that never practice
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair. It's my only real ostentatious thing about me, and it
helps distract from how less impressive the rest of my body is
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: There Will Be Blood, Andrei Tarkovsky's Solaris, Crank 2. I
think I like movies that I'm still thinking about twenty four hours
after I leave a theater, and the style or genre is not really that
Music: Ponytail, anything Steve Albini does or produces, Life
Without Buildings, Lightning Bolt...honestly anything that feels
sincere or passionate.
Books: Milan Kundera, all his books are kind of the same books so I
don't need to pick one, Borges, Carl Sagan, the first story in
Italo Calvinos Cosmiccomics.
Food: pretty much anything, I suppose. I like trying to cook new
foods quite a bit. I've gotten pretty good at making indian food.
The six things I could never do without
-Bicycle, I needs to get around
-Coffee, and I'm not that picky. Really I just need a quick
injection of caffeine. In a pinch, ibuprofen works
-The amorphous concept of music. I can not give one album as an
example of my taste, as I get sick of one album after a week, I
need a constant stream of music.
-People to argue with about music
-Science blogs and or websites. Took a break from my biology major
and a need to have a steady update of breakthroughs to keep me
connected to my field
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What if Pinocchio said, "My nose will now grow..."
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends at a bar, show, or gallery opening,
whatever is happening that night. Usually there's a good amount of
alcohol involved, but lately I've been trying to pull that part
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Every message I send, terrifies me
You should message me if
If you won't take it personally that I don't respond right away.
I'm pretty sub par at this online dating thing. Also, if you're not
terribly disappointed that if we go out, I will probably be paying
in change until I graduate and get a proper job.
