I'm not sure why I find this so difficult. Possibly I spend to
little time really 'thinking' (operative word) about myself in the
manner necessary to come to any conclusive statements. Maybe I'm
scared, or maybe human beings are really just that interesting and
complicated in that there's never that one simple answer capable of
summing up a life. In short, I've not really told you much, or
maybe I've told you more than I know ;).
So I just read that again and Lord knows it possibly comes off
quite dry and pretentious. I was trying to be clever and it's quite
possible I failed miserably, but you can't blame a guy for trying

What I’m doing with my life
Going to grad school. Getting MFA in Film.
I have achieved this goal and now all that remains is conquering the world (I'll leave periodic updates as to how that is coming along).
Like a good amount of people that chose this path, I'm now working in a totally unrelated field (real estate).
I’m really good at
Being myself. I've had a lot of practice.Even though there is still
the occasional hiccup/speed bump

suspect it would be quite awkward if I did.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Cinema)....but I'm more than happy to be watching a horrific,
mindless action film in which nothing resembling story, plot, or
Books: Interpreter of Maladies, Dubliners, Wallace Stevens, William
Carlos Williams (poets), plus many others I've yet to
Music: Jazz, Classical, Rock, some Hip-hop, and I'm willing to give
anything else a shot.
Food: Japanese, Mexican, Indian, Chinese, Thai, Ethiopian, American
(whatever that may be)...basically I'm not too picky.
The six things I could never do without
Language, art, travel, oxygen, the ability to think, sleep (even
though I've tried on occasion)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
varying topics. It will change from moment, and whether that's good
or bad I'm not sure.
On a typical Friday night I am
Other than the fact that it's another Friday there's not necessary
a typical thing for me to be doing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm often afraid to sleep...never really figured that one out.
You should message me if
you feel you'd like to.
