My self-summary
There was about a one month span of time in which my profile was a short story, but I feel like it is time to repopulate it.

I tend to talk in stories, which is how this happened. I collect them. Whether they are stories where I am the protagonist, or stories friends have told me, or stories that random people have told, or stories I overheard while sitting on a bench somewhere reading. Then I tell them to people. Sometimes when we are face to face and other times when they are reading.
What I’m doing with my life
By day, I work for a tech company. It is a remote position, which is pretty excellent.

By night, I try to be a writer. Some weeks that goes better than others.

When I am not engaging in my job that pays me or my job that doesn't pay me, I tend to sit on my porch with my roommates and friends and cook food and tell stories.
I’m really good at
Listening to things. This could be a specific person or just hearing what is going on in the world. I am notorious for overhearing a snippet of conversation, holding onto it for years, then translating that into an awesome present that someone would never expect.

Cooking and baking bread. I am really into the idea of what food says about a person/community/culture and I am fascinated by the ways that different things come together to create a whole dish. I also think that it says a lot about humans that communion over dinner has been in nearly every culture since the beginning of time. I love to cook a meal for a big group of people so that we can all sit down and tell our stories.
The first things people usually notice about me
The words tattooed around my arms. I have had many strangers walk up and grab my arm (usually drunkenly) to try to read the various fonts scrawled across my flesh.

Also, I apparently have a very distinct walk. I had a friend in college who could identify me halfway across campus just by the way I was walking.

Food: I am not a picky eater. I try to cook as much at home as possible. I'm a big fan of Indian, Thai, and Mexican. They are my big three. But I can make a mean chicken (or tofu *shhh don't tell the South*) and dumplings and many other Southern staples. My grandfather was born and died in Delaware and had very vehement feelings about slippery dumplings versus drop dumplings, so I was born into Southern cooking.
The six things I could never do without
1. Friends (this includes family, since I'm friends with most of them, Facebook says so)
2. Paper and a pen (this is technically cheating, but the two are so interconnected to separate them seems wrong)
3. Music (whether it is in the form of mp3s, records, or some bar band playing while I drink... life needs a soundtrack)
5. Grass (greatest symbol ever, re-read Leaves of Grass if you don't believe me)
6. Stories (see, I skipped 4 to make up for 2)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What clouds look like. Circus folk. Why I don't have the gumption to sell everything and become part of the aforementioned circus folk. Dustbowl Era imagery. How it is possible that The Big Bang Theory and Rosanne share the same creator as Two and a Half Men. How it is possible that my roommate and I seem to be the only two people on the planet who hate Two and a Half Men. What makes cut grass smell so good.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes I go out to the bar with my friends. Sometimes I do nerdy things then go to sleep early. The latter has been happening more often than the former of late.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have become hopelessly addicted to Pawn Stars. The show is fierce.

I am currently working on organizing my home library. The categories go as such:

1. Modern Fiction (1900-Present)
2. Classic Fiction (Pre-1900)
3. Poetry
4. Young Adult/Kids Books
5. Reference/Non-Fiction
6. Mythology/Folklore
7. Science Fiction/Fantasy
8. Old Books (like the books themselves are old)
9. Philosophy/Theology

Yes, I am a nerd.

Finally, I have spent far more time thinking about a zombie escape plan than a grown man probably should. However, in light of the last 6 months, I'm thinking that may not have been such a bad thing.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 19–36
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You think it should be a crime to look at someone funny because they are an adult and still watch kid's cartoons and wear shoes that they've written on in permanent marker.

You are okay with the fact that I talk in stories.

You'd like to offer me notes on my short stories or know how to end them, because that is always nice.

You live in or around Media, PA and are looking for new friends who throw killer parties one night, then spend the next sitting on a deck or porch or veranda talking about books and stuff.
