I should probably talk more about myself and less about Philly. I'm a friendly, smart, thoughtful, and compassionate guy. I'm pretty liberal, both socially and economically. I consider masculinity to be a social construct that I'm not particularly interested in performing. I'm very interested in being the person that I want to be. That includes enjoying both basketball and Fashion Police: Red Carpet Edition (along with a lot of less frivolous things).
I love animals, and I have a cat. Her name is Tess and she is quite the sweetheart. My roommate has a dog. She's a toy rat terrier named Emma. My roommate and I have high hopes that Emma and Tess will become good friends, but so far their relationship is mainly indifferent.
My main hobby is reading. I don't go out very often, but when I do it's usually for karaoke. I love the outdoors, especially hiking, but I don't get the opportunity to get out of the city very often. I really enjoy juggling. I have an on again off again relationship with chess. I'm looking for a new hobby; suggestions are welcome.
