Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a 26 year old small business owner who is incredibly
over-educated in disciplines that I do not use at all in my small
business. I am a creator/artist in training/practice and there is
no notepad in the world that can hold all of my ideas (sidenote: I
attempt them all, but complete no more than half). I love being
outside and enjoying nature. I love to hike and camp as much as
possible. I hate stupid people. Not people who are unintelligent,
but people blinded and guided by ignorance. I don't like people who
are overzealous with their beliefs and enforce them on others. I
want to believe in dragons. I am clumsy. I like to think I don't
have any enemies (there may be some out there though I can't
imagine why). I think kids are amazing and I wish I could enjoy
anything in life as much as a child seems to---getting older seems
to make people depressing and cynical. I am occasionally cynical. I
enjoy going to see live music whenever I can and I often travel for
a good show and I usually end each summer with wrists full of cloth
bands of assorted colors. Lately all of those seem to say
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Sipping coffee and staring longingly at the framed MA degree on my
wall that is beginning to collect dust. Currently working a few
jobs to pay off the debt from the aforementioned degree and
summertime traveling the country selling my artwork at different
music and art festivals with the small art and clothing business I
started while in grad school. Has been a blast being able to
present and sell things that I design/create. So unbelievably
rewarding and I've only been creating for the past two years.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I feel I'm a pretty good writer, a decent dancer, a solid
outdoorsman, a strong enthusiast for the world of arts and crafts,
a skilled SET player (best game ever), an eccentric imagineer, a
lover of anything silly, and I have been known to pontificate
extensively on just about anything.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I don't read as much as I should. That being said I just finished
Inherent Vice and want to read more Pynchon. Working through Blood
Meridian and I have some Bukowski xmas gifts that seem to be in my
Movies--Shawshank, Gump, Wet Hot American Summer, Bill and Ted's, A
River Runs Through It, Blues Brothers, All Mighty Ducks, Ninja
Turtles, Back to the Future, and Indiana Jones movies. Also the
Usual Suspects, the Game, anything Mel Brooks, all Charlie Kaufman,
Wes Anderson is awesome, most Kubrick, the Goonies, and many many
more. My favorite christmas movie is a tie between Bad Santa and
TV--lot of nonsense on there. My dvr likes good comedies with no
laugh track, gritty dramas on hbo and amc, and the daily show
Music wise I can basically stand anything up to a point. I love
music that gets me dancing and moving. I like electronic, rock and
some bluegrass and funk but the list of my favorites has so many
more artists on it that it would be silly to name. Top 40 is
garbage and if only listen to that then you haven't listened to
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Car/capacity to just go on a whim (not leave it all behind so to
speak, but I go on a lot of spontaneous road trips)
2. Good music
3. Being silly
5. Warm sunshine
6. A medium to write upon
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why they don't bring back that awesome game "the incredible
machine" that was on windows 95. Also I think about whether having
wings would be as awesome as it seems. Wouldn't it get
uncomfortable sleeping under covers with the kind of wings that
would be necessary to pick you up off the ground? Also destroyed
clothes would be a whole problem.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Could be working, could be going out, either way I am probably
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been a vegetarian for two and a half years and I feel great
about it (not really so private)
^^Exception to this was last year where I spent over a month in
Ecuador where I was not so vegetarian. Really impossible down there
but I was able to see the actual animals being raised and slain for
the food I was eating which is fine by me. It is the
dissassociation of people and grocery purchasing from actual food
processing in the states that sickens me. No longer a cow or
chicken, only a steak or plate of wings. Vegetarian while back
