My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
When I was young, like 4 or 5, as we were driving by a pasture full of horses, I made the statement "when I grow up, I want to be a horse and eat hay!" My parents laughed and without fail will bring this story up at the most inopportune moments. I unfortunately never did grow up to be a horse or actually ever have anything to do with horses, but I still have a predilection towards making bold statements without considering the consequences.

Lately I find I have this tendency to always consider worst case scenarios for any situation and then really go off the rails and consider exponentially worse case scenarios, like having a heart attack, getting hit in the head with a space toilet, the sun exploding, the galaxy collapsing into a black hole. See what I mean? Shit can always get worse.

Within the past year I've started running long distance again and have found that I actually enjoy it. I ran cross country during high school (mostly to pad out my extracurriculars for college) and hated every minute of it. My new found enjoyment probably has something to do with this being something I'm doing because I want to, not because I have to.

Books are a pretty integral part of my identity, my parents would always read books to myself and my siblings before we went to sleep when we were younger and I think this helped to instill us with a belief in the importance of reading. As such, I read all the time and I usually have like 6 books going at any given time. Having a Kindle/iphone has been the best thing ever because I always have a book on hand.

I have this ongoing discussion with my brother about the nature of music fans, especially with regards to seeing live music. Some people maybe only see their favorite band once or twice and that is a big deal, while others see a lot of different bands all the time (of course this also depends on your location - if you live in like Billings, Montana your live music options are going to be limited). I fall squarely into the seeing a lot of different bands camp. I love seeing live music and try to see as many shows as often as I can. Getting older just means that waking up for work sucks that much more, but at least I'm banking a lot of great experiences.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently working for a private investigator and before anyone gets too excited, I mostly handle the less glamorous office side of this business - research, billing, case management, etc. Every once in a while I get out to do some light surveillance or process serving, but have yet to get into any crazy film noir situations. I majored in Sociology at university with the idea of joining law enforcement, but my first job out of college working for a police department quickly disabused me of that career choice - being a cop really sucks.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making other people laugh for no reason apparently.
correctly guessing the numerical rating for a Pitchfork review.
Ability to discern foreign accents.
Having Middle Child Syndrome.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My glasses? They are black and chunky and I've had them since before they were hip, but at least I'm stylish now? Also, since I'm a mutt, I always get questioned about my ethnicity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

e) I enjoy food, am not a picky eater and I'll pretty much try anything at least once. Currently, I would say my favorite type of food is Ethiopian, it just has such a different flavor profile than most other foods that it is always quite enjoyable.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good book to read, my glasses, earplugs (for seeing bands live - I'm a wuss and don't want to go deaf), good music, Rainbow slippers, and iced beverages (this from traveling in Europe and having luke warm drinks, no fun).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo. This is a for real sentence! It uses the verb form of buffalo meaning "to bully or intimidate."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either being lazy at home and watching a movie or out seeing some band somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Now that I'm no longer in school, I don't really like the Summer. I'm not a huge fan of warm weather, I prefer Autumn/Winter and lower temperatures.
You should message me if

You want to discuss Karl Marx and social constructionism, or hang out and watch Herzog documentaries.

I'm always looking for a pal to check out new music and restaurants.
