I had typed up a new self-summary, realized it sounded really well prepared, really well thought out, too well rehearsed. So I'm going to start typing without really thinking here and see what happens. I think that better fits my blood.
I want to do as much as possible. I like wine, philosophy, writing music, writing words, reading words, combat sports, camping, beer. I like to step out on a Sunday afternoon, and walk or bike around town looking for something interesting. If I'm at home I feel cooped up. I'm always trying to create action.
My hobbies are judo, weightlifting, and attempting to get into PhD programs. I've seldom met a karaoke bar I didn't like.
Lazy river tubing with plenty of Leinenkugel's. Drive-in movie theaters.
I'm a feminist and a progressive. I'm without religion. I think going through life treating people with basic dignity because you've constructed your own code of ethics through experience is beautiful. Though I certainly don't look down on the religious, I come from a religious family. There are things about it that I appreciate.
I play in bands. I've done some touring around the country a bit, sleeping on floors, getting kicked out of truck-stops, getting paid in beer, having equipment stolen, the works. It was awesome. I'm terrified that I'll never do it again. My current band sticks to the local bars. I spend a lot of my time in dark bars listening to very loud music.
I tend to be impulsive. I will get myself into weird situations without an exit strategy. I want stories, man. There's nothing more important to me than stories.
I'm a major sports fan. I've found that the more I've gotten into philosophy and social/political/critical theory, the more I appreciate sports. I can count my sports fan friends on a single hand probably, and it makes me sad.
I try to be well dressed, sometimes I fail.
I try to stay well rounded.
Some weekends I host karaoke at a bar near my apartment.
