Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Life is a funny thing. One moment, you figure you've got a pretty
solid idea as to what your life is going to look like for the next
60 years. The colour and the shape are fairly solid, you think: the
rest is just details. And then you take a step forward and discover
it was all an illusion--a pitfall hidden beneath an expensive rug,
if you will--and then it's a long, long fall before you find out
just how far the hole really goes.
And then you do it again. Because life is a funny thing, and
callback jokes are damn fine comedy.
Which is okay, if you're willing to laugh at yourself.
Fortunately, I like laughing at myself--it's good TV. I also like
driving fast, even if I wear a seatbelt. I like drinking cheap beer
and expensive scotch. I like falling asleep while spooning and
being woken up for early-morning sex. I like finding things in
common with strangers I meet at bars and parties. I like getting
lost in the desert. I like learning ridiculous new things, like
painting figurines, or making my own cologne, or infusing alcohol,
or shaving with a straight razor. I like raucously partying and
quietly pondering on my own in the small hours of the
Ultimately, I like gulping down life as fast as I can for as long
as I can. I'd like to meet people who are like me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Tearing off more of it than I can chew, and then trying not to
choke. Life is too short, too easy to miss, to wait for things to
line up, so I try to keep it full with little things, with new
things, with things I love. The end of everyone's story is the
same--it's the memories I make along the way that are important to
me, that keep life from slipping through my fingers.
Which means I'm pretty damn busy playing with my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Saying yes. Filling my calendar. Kissing (I have references ;) ).
