My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What it is, everyone. My name is Ian, and thank you for taking the time to check out my profile. (Wait! Wait! Don't hit the "Back" button! It'll be fun, I promise!)

Not a Bay Area native. In fact, I've only lived in the Bay for the past half-decade, having come here for school in Summer 2009. I was born and raised in Redding (*sigh...* for the last time, it's 160 miles north of Sacramento on I-5!), though I also spent a couple years in Chico, and still have great friends and know a lot of amazing people in both towns.

I'm a one-time college radio DJ (KCSC FTW, y'all!) and dropout from Chico State. A sometime student activist against budget cuts to higher education and graduate of SF State [BA, 2011, Sociology (oh, and there was that whole Occupy thing. Yeah, I was part of that, too)]. And I currently earn my keep as a grocery store produce clerk in San Francisco while my nights are dedicated to higher pursuits of self-education (*sigh...* Okay. I watch documentaries about subjects like the universe and travel on Netflix and YouTube).

On my days off, you can find me at a record shop, a punk rock show, at home cooking dinner for myself, or wandering the streets of Oakland or a regional park and reflecting on everything.

Trying to find a balance and move on to the next chapter of my life. Hopefully you'll come along for the ride.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as a produce clerk at a grocery store. No, it's not terribly lucrative, but I dig the general line of work and it's definitely something I can see myself doing for several years down the line.

Also trying to regain some semblance of a real social life despite my work schedule. (That is the worst part of working closing shifts, after all; the reality of missing out).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Why don't you tell me, chief?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, I'm short, obviously. And an acquaintance of mine once remarked to me that I appeared "perpetually beset." So... yeah.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: Favorite band of all time is The Beatles, with Bad Religion a close second. I'm mostly into punk, hardcore, jazz, country (think Wayne Hancock), metal, hip-hop, folk, and ska. I don't listen to the radio, so I'm not necessarily down with (or even aware of) what all the kids are into. (But seriously, y'all; there's nothing quite like playing Wes Montgomery's "Bumpin'" LP on a rainy afternoon to take you to a different place).

Books: Non-fiction, mostly; politics, political theory, history, and music/pop-culture. I'm trying to get back in the habit of reading fiction, though, which I've not done with any serious interest since I was 17.

Movies: As with books, I'm trying to watch actual movies again, instead of relying on documentaries for my visual entertainment. And it's more motivation for me to get through my long Netflix queue. In any event, though, my favorite movies of all time would be The Shawshank Redemption and The Godfather, Part II.

Television: I'll watch it for the occasional 49ers or Giants game and reruns of favorite shows. But I tend to stay away from it.

Food: Meat and potatoes, mostly, though I am trying to incorporate more produce into my diet. No avocados, though. Or guacamole. Or mushrooms. FUCK NO NOT MUSHROOMS. UGH.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(Home-brewed) coffee.
Home-cooked food.
My record collection.
Family and friends.
Time alone to recharge.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Past experiences and lessons learned. Making plans for where I'm gonna be and what I'm gonna be doing when I hit 30. The politics of music and the sociology of countercultures. Adding to my record collection. The origins and ultimate fate of the universe. Who submits OKC's survey questions and how the hell I'm supposed to answer them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing records in my room. Watching documentaries on Netflix or YouTube. At a punk show. Cooking dinner for myself. On an impromptu road trip and hanging with friends up at home. But most likely working.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you lean left (I'm an atheist and a socialist, so if you're oriented toward the right side of the political spectrum, we probably would be better off as strangers).

If you live in SF or the East Bay and you'd love to see what there is to see.

If you'd love to get together sometime, get coffee or a drink, and get to know each other.
