Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Aaron. From what I hear I'm a pretty nice guy. I'm quiet, a
little neurotic, and a bit of a homebody. I tend to wear my heart
on my sleeve. I'm also really gullible, and that's always good for
As I mentioned above I tend to stay in a lot, but when I do go out
I like going to the movies, going to restaurants, shopping for
books, or just walking around town aimlessly. I keep telling myself
I'm going to start jogging someday, but I always seem to find an
excuse to put it off. Once or twice a month I hit the bar and wake
up the next day completely unaware of what transpired the previous
night. I'm a total light weight.
My sense of humor skews toward the self-deprecating and is often
mistaken for actual self esteem issues, which I can assure you is
not the case. I am awesome. Well, maybe just kind of awesome.
Adequately awesome at the very least. Biggest character flaw? I
have a tendency to second-guess myself.
My last relationship lasted for a little over 11 years and ended
earlier this year. It seems during that time I've totally forgotten
how to interact with other people. So, this is me reintroducing
myself to civilization. On the internet. That is how people
communicate these days, right?
So totally disregard that last paragraph. My ex and I have
reconciled and are back together. So I guess she really isn't my ex
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just moved to the thriving metropolis of Auburn, MI and am
working nearby. I don't know that many people in the area so I
spend a lot of time online.
I'm heading back to school this winter semester and hope to get my
degree in Information Technology within a couple of years. I swear
every time I go back to school the people there get younger and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Always standing in
someone else's way. Sneezing at the most inopportune moments. And
Monopoly. I rock at Monopoly.

I'm really shy. Really, really shy. It's pretty ridiculous.

I really like Cormac McCarthy, Kurt Vonegut, Albert Camus, and Jean
Paul Sartre. Apathy and Other Small Victories by Paul Neilan is
quite possibly the funniest book ever written. I read Naked Lunch
by William S. Burroughs in High School and pretended to understand
it. I think I was pretty convincing. I've also collected comics and
graphic novels since I was a kid. I'm a pretty big nerd.
I firmly believe that Ghostbusters and Chinatown are the two most
perfect movies ever made. I love 30 Rock and Community and am
really bummed out that they both end this year. I also like Parks
and Rec, Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and just about anything
Joss Whedon does. Holy crap, Arrested Development is coming back in
May! How cool is that?
Music wise I'm stuck in the late 80s and early 90s. I love
Pavement, Sebadoh, Pixies, My Bloody Valentine, Uncle Tupelo, and
other indie bands from that era. My favorite album of all time is
probably London Calling by The Clash. I also like some classic
rock, some newer indie stuff, and older hip hop. I also have a soft
spot for really terrible dance pop even though I'm legally banned
from dancing in the state of Michigan. That last bit was a
I'll eat pretty much anything as long as there aren't any peanuts
or broccoli involved.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My ugly tiger and eagle blanket. It is the warmest, softest
thing to ever exist. It is hideous. I kind of want to carry it
around with me all the time, like Linus from Peanuts.
2. One of my crappy guitars. I don't play very well at all, and I
almost never play in front of other people, but I enjoy playing all
3. A copy of Pavement' s fourth album, Brighten the Corners, and
something to play it on. That doesn't count as two, does it?
4. Cold medicine. Whenever something's going around I always seem
to catch it. I swear I've had the same cold since '08.
5. A book of some sort. It doesn't really matter what kind. Just
something with paper and words. Pictures optional.
6. Diet Pepsi. I drink the stuff all the time. I'm beginning to
think I might have a problem.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The usual stuff. What am I doing with my life? Where did all my
hair go? How can I simultaneously not believe in ghosts and still
be terrified of them? Did that light in the other room just come on
by itself? Who cut holes in all my bed sheets?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm not at work I'm probably reading in bed or watching reruns
of old sitcoms on Netflix.
