Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Like the old song goes, "I was born and raised in southern
California." At least I think there's a song like that. Maybe not.
I've done a lot of thinking and although I am a native Californian
I have come to think of California as a hotel, a hotel located on a
dark desert highway. There's plenty of room at this "hotel"
California. The funny thing, though, is that you can check out
anytime you like, but you can never really leave. Think about
(I also have this whole other theory about how thunder only happens
when its raining, but I won't get into it here. )
Also, both Myers and Briggs told me to "get a life." Briggs, I
wasn't surprised. But Myers??!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to raise an army of godless socialists from the smoldering
ashes of public education (ie teaching history at an inner-city
high school.) I surrender to the siren song of the desert whenever
I can, or strum a spanish guitar while wand'ring thru the fields,
or perch atop cliffs overlooking a violent shore. I like to do
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at tripping while walking and making it look like i
totally meant to trip because i totally did
I'm also really good at forcing my houseplants to question why they
continue to exist
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told I look like the Indian guy on 'Heroes', or 'Lost',
or 'Parks and Rec' or 'Portlandia' or whoever the Indian-du-jour is
on TV. And one of my students just told me that I look like the
Indian guy on some cartoon which is great because now I look like a
cartoon. However, I think the first thing people usually notice
about me is that I am not a cartoon.

I just finished Pale Fire so now I'm not sure I'll ever be able to
enjoy another book again. Uncle Vlad, you butterfly-fetishising
madman, you've done it again! I'm also researching self-inflicted
traumatic brain injuries so that I may experience Master and
Margarita for the first time again. And as per the okcupid user
agreement I am legally obligated to write "Murakami" in this

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
blah blah blah blah blah Mexican food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what other guys' profiles look like, because according to you
ladies its all incorrect spelling, shirtless shots, photos with
other girls, and rampant misuse of "there/they're/their."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
lying in a pool of blood. Oh but don't worry, its not my blood
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I go to museums alone and the people there look at me funny; not
because I'm alone, but because I'm naked.
