Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
At this point in my life, I'm selfishly indulging my lifelong dream
of doing nothing but traveling. Richmond is my home, so I stop here
between trips to see my family, rest, eat burgers, and all that
other wholesome American stuff. I've spent roughly three quarters
of the past 2 years out of the country. While that means I'm a
singularly lucky dude, and that my stories are Dos Equis level
awesome, it does make it hard to meet (and maintain) relationships
here in the 804. That being said, I'll never turn down a good
conversation, a new friend, or someone impulsive enough to let me
book a trip for 2 to Bora Bora two days in advance.
Here are the kind of people I want to meet:
A. Nerds. As in, people that love knowledge, as well as its
applications (Trivial Pursuit, basically). A tip of the hat to
anybody that likes the show QI, reads biographies, or spends
inordinate amounts of time on Sporcle, trying to remember the
capital of the Seychelles.
B. Philosophers. The darkness encroaches! Let's talk around it in a
completely useless and subjective manner. I can do a pretty good
English accent, if that helps.
C. Lunatics. Sanity is a hideous illusion. Everyone's really just
looking for someone to share their personal brand of crazy with. We
could do it right now. You first.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Cheating, really. I was able to figure out a way to be able to
travel freely and live with almost no responsibilities. I mean I
had some help (American, White, Male... Thanks Universe)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Blending in. Being intimidating. Making Bruschetta. Alliteration.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My default facial expression is, I've been told, one of anger or
contempt. "Resting Bitch Face" a lesser person might call it. In
actuality, I'm a soft, marshmallowy kind of dude, probably thinking
of a turtle on a skateboard.

If you haven't tried Indonesian food, you should go for it. Beef
Rendang is "dope"
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Soy Sauce, Diet Mountain Dew, Sigur Ros, Vindaloo, podcasts, the
total lack of travel restrictions enjoyed by Americans.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to say 'thank you' in Khmer. What tattoo(s) I could pull off.
How many days is it "ok" to go without talking to anyone.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I don't have someone to hang with, I'm probably mulling over
which restaurant I can table-for-one with the least social stigma
(They're all tied for last place).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

My favorite Dashboard song is 'Vindicated'
