My self-summary
I just moved back to CA after spending a few years living in WA State and traveling. Feel free to ask me about it. I love sharing personal facts. That sounds like sarcasm, but I swear it isn't.

Farty noise.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm on the most likely charade of a road toward becoming an author. I have a book written and I am attempting to find an agent. It's either this ego-shattering process or trying to self-publish. I'm far too lazy to market myself.

As of now, I have a job as a content writer at an SEO company. Let's just not talk about this. It's boring as hell, but it pays relatively well and allows me a lot of free time, so I can't complain too much.

Outside of my hobby that I want to turn into a job and my actual job, pretty much my favorite thing is going to the gym. I have recently begun attending a boxing gym, and it's a great way to get out my aggression in a safe environment where I will not hurt myself or others. There's nothing worse than finding out you have accidentally murdered someone at the local watering hole, amirite guys? Puts a total damper on Friday night.

I know this sounds boring, but I am at a point in my life where I am trying to put down some roots. I went through a three or four year phase where I travelled a lot and didn't stay put in one place for more than four months. I spent time in the US, cruising up and down the Mississippi River on a cruise boat, worked in an Australian hotel, and went to the UK. While I want to continue traveling regularly (I get super restless otherwise), I also want to create a home base for myself.
I’m really good at
I like to think I'm a good cook. People tell me I am, anyway. Either that, or everyone I have ever known has gotten together and had a party without me and decided to lie to me when I feed them things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no clue. I'll take a poll.

Update: 85% said eyes. They're blue, and like little pools of joy apparently. Let's ignore the 15% that said the awkward mole...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Harry Potter (yeah, yeah, I know), Something Wicked This Way Comes, John Dies at the End, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Paper Towns, Neil Gaiman's bibliography, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. (As you can probably tell, my imagination hasn't quite joined the adult ranks.)

Movies: Cabin in the Woods, Before Sunset, Easy A, Lost in Translation, The Darjeeling Limited, The Trip, Night of the Comet, Brick, Donnie Darko, Beginners

TV: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Bob's Burgers, Parks and Recreation, Doctor Who (so far, only the Moffat era, I'm not a true fan), Misfits, plus whatever I'm currently obsessed with (at this moment: The Venture Bros.)

Music: Chad VanGaalen, Saintseneca, The Antlers, Say Anything, The Lumineers, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Neutral Milk Hotel, Ida Maria, Kate Nash, Devendra Banhart, The Silent Years, Tokyo Police Club, etc., etc. never-ending...

Food: Mediterranean, Chinese, Mexican, anything and everything unless tentacles are involved
The six things I could never do without
1. living within a 30 minute drive of the ocean so I can drive to and stare at it solemnly (now I'm only five minutes away, wooo)

2. alone time to stare at other wonders of natural beauty and various possessions solemnly

3. the ability to binge, since I tend to do this with things until I'm sick of them

4. people who don't mind my brand of crazy

5. never-ending cheeseburgers (I'm at the wish-making portion of my list, since I've run out of actual needs.

6. the ability to announce that since I have so few needs, I'm low maintenance
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I'm going to make money six months from now (I don't think about the future beyond six months at a time. If I did, I'd be extra suicidal.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably watching TV. If I had friends, I would hopefully be playing beer pong.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love playing beer pong?
You should message me if
You think you can handle me. I'm not really low maintenance.

In all seriousness, I have two qualifiers:
1 (for anybody who hits me up, romantic or platonic): please have the ability to engage in semi-fast paced witty banter. That's the shit I run on, once I'm comfortable with a person.

2 (for romantic prospects only): Please land at least quasi-firmly in the masculinity camp. While I'm comfortable being friends with anybody, I'm pretty much exclusively attracted to guys who are dude-like. I hope I'm not offending anyone here.
