My self-summary
Paul F. Tompkins is exactly the human I want to become but with a beard and not a mustache.

Hi I like old books and social justice and just not being very rude to too many people for no reason. I like watching stuff, making laughs, smoking that four hundred and twenty P.M., playing with dogs, talking to dogs, matching the enthusiasm of dogs, reading aloud, all that shit.
What I’m doing with my life
rn putting out the fire.

Grad school in the next year or so, and eventually teaching all the signets about gender and Victorian-era England or maybe cognition and linguistics?
I’m really good at
Laughs, nesting in all of the blankets and pillows, reading, wall collages, writing about sad books, reading aloud.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm chubby and relentlessly adorable but tbh it's probably that I look sleepy or am a general mess
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Brontës three, Hardy, the Brownings and Rossettis, Virginia Woolf, Patricia Lockwood, Anne Carson, James Joyce, I also like a lot of art and sociological criticism like Judith Butler, Foucault, Nancy Chodorow, Gilbert & Gubar, Gayatri Spivak, Cormac McCarthy,

Movies: non-masturbatory documentaries, charming stuff, criterion collection stuff. Something like Herzog if I am feeling dark and ~experimental~. Sergio Leone makes some great westerns.

Six, "Back at One" by Bryan McKnight
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What Ice-T is up to right now, and how often Ice-T and Ice Cube are in the same area code without realizing it.

The origin of idioms.

How many social issues kindness-- even just not being a dick all the time-- could solve.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a thing or going somewhere that isn't stupid fucking loud to have a drink.

Also if a music then a music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There are like two lily allen songs I like a lot.
You should message me if
Laugh about stuff,
Talk about literature or art or theory or film or funnies,
Eat things,
Exchange mix CDs/playlists,
Watch an old movie, read an old book, play an old video game,
Be pals,
you are me from the future.
