I work hard to be empathic, and I maintain relationships with people that disagree with me. I'm still trying to understand why a childhood friend voluntarily served two tours in Iraq.
I'm a romantic, but in the Gatsby sort of sense rather than the Danielle Steel one. I think "Wonder Boys" is one of the greatest films ever.
I'm not religious about anything. I like the gnostic idea that the serpent was the good force. I think gender stereotypes ruin all the fun.
I'm an existentialist. This does not mean that I see the world as some sort of horrible, meaningless mechanical progression of physics. Instead, I see it as an amazing, meaningless, and beautiful canvas on which we layer even more beautiful and amazing meaning.
I believe in responsibility. I have a dog, and I want kids some day. At the same time, I hope I never really grow up. Peter Pan all the way. I don't ever want a two-car garage, or a white picket fence. I don't want to be a patriarchical, father-knows-best asshole. Life is messy and fucked up and imprecise and I love it that way.
I am playful, rebellious, and immature.
