"I don't ask for your pity, but just for your understanding - not even that - no. Just for your recognition of me in you, and the enemy, time, in us all."

I hate my username.
Putting myself out there again, properly, earnestly, romantically. Whatever that means.
Writing songs. Singing said songs. Writing other things. Sometimes performing those other things, sometimes giving them to friends to do things with, sometimes crumpling up the paper and forgetting they ever existed.
Spending too much time on the Internet doing things that don't make me more interesting. Blogging and tweeting about European soccer. Bartending or enjoying a beverage. Socializing.
I miss biking. I like swimming. And reading. Searching with loud and desperate futility for balance in all things. Avoiding cleaning or doing my laundry. Etc.

a sense of humor
Why I'm doing this crazy acting thing, and what it even is.
Now that I am in full swing with graduate school, most of my Friday nights involve rehearsal and then trying to get a jump on the work for next week
You don't make the same face in each of your pictures, and you didn't answer the "6 Things" question super literally ... "Um, like, AIR duh."
Also what's up with all the people that are "laid back" on here? I mean, I'm not manic or anything (in fact I'm pretty mellow) but if that's the FIRST way you define yourself like, yikes.
I like most people, and I like conversation. And I'm usually game to split a bucket of Trader Joe's Crispy Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies.
