My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I fluctuate moderately between sweet-heart and smart-ass.

I like the big picture, but get off on the details.

I am a bostonian by blood, have travelled a bit but been back for a few years and if I dont run away like i want to i would like to keep digging for the soul of this city- have found a few gems so far- and an awesome treehouse apartment to settle into but -otherwise my imagination is turning my paychecks into plane tickets...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Facing the challenge of being a creative thinking type* in this world with as much originality & authenticity as possible.

Oh yeah, and working on a way to get paid for it..

*went to art school for printmaking, illustration (&design)

In the meantime my life is spent taking more and more and more art classes at RISD, getting a TEFL certificate, doing as much bikram yoga as I can fit into my week, and at night Im serving up sass to cantabridgians & covertly leaving drawings on chalkboards..
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thumb wars, Rummy500, Bullsh*t, balancing, writing, (over)analyzing, debating, small-talking, impressions, idea-generating, illustrating,
graphic-designing, to-do-listing, getting lost in conversation, finding my way in a new city, giving advice/insight, misrepresenting myself, playing dumb? seeing multiple sides of an argument, maintaining an open mind/fresh perspective,
run. on. sentences., writing papers (despite the looks of these well-crafted list-sentences),
indecisiveness, bruising, remembering the details.
Recognizing people from a mile+ away, by gesture, gait, or clothing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Usually get comments on the eyes & long sorta red hair..

somehow, people can tell i'm 'an artist' even through my occasional neutral camouflage... i have yet to figure out what gives me away
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Murakami, Arundhati Roy, Alain de Botton, Etgar Keret, Yann Martel, Zadie Smith, Mark Twain, Mikhail Bulgakov, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, Garcia-Marquez, Calvino, Saramago, DeLillo, Roth, Junot Diaz-holy shit.
(genre: flash fiction)
E.E. Cummings, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Hafiz, Neruda,
(Calvin & Hobbes- always and forever)
* I love BOOKS. as objects. I have a whole shelf of books that are there just to be beautiful- old, or retro first-aid or boy-scout manuals is a growing collection. I am sort of against Kindle, for obvious reasons.

Movies:
Coen brothers stuff, wes anderson (when it's done right), Amelie, wristcutters, Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, Snatch, Beginners, Princess Bride, Monty Python & the Holy Grail, the Fifth Element, A Life Less Ordinary, Pan's Labrynth, Dr. Strangelove..

Shows:
Mad Men, 30 Rock, the Daily Show, Louie, portlandia, also classics like seinfeld, the simpsons, arrested development

Also podcasts: really obsessed with Radiolab, WTF with Marc Maron, then the NPR stuff like This American Life, Fresh Air, TED radio hour etc..
Music:
(heres a smattering~)
old-school/new conscious hip hop, JDilla, TRex, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Old Blues (Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf), Sam Cooke, Chuck Berry, Elvis, , Nina Simone, Otis Redding, old punk (Operation Ivy, the Clash), Iggy Pop, Radiohead, the Cure, the Smiths, newer people i've gotten into Passion Pit, Yeasayer, TV on the Radio, Animal Collective, gogol bordello, devotchka, neko case, rubblebucket, tune-yards,

Food:
I try a Banh Mi in every new city I end up in, it's my destination sandwich. SF was the best so far.
Vietnamese fresh rolls FTW!
I've been putting honey mustard on anything that seems remotely plausible. I'm a little bit in love with avocado too. & arugula(!!)
all summer i pretty much subsisted on mangoes, now that it's fall i will probably subsist on apples. (...& whiskey + cider)
****the food world has taught me a lot about booze recently:***
**In love with nicely balanced IPAs, ( other favs- jacks abby 2xIPL & night shift's viva habanera- is just spicy and delicious) also learning more bout rye, bourbon- the perfect old fashioned or sazerac makes me happy, and weirdly, mezcal- if it's in the right cocktail is delicious.
*i've had bouts of vegetarianism, and feel healthier on that end of the spectrum, but tend to keep it fresh, light and protein-based when i can. that said, i do love bacon.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
a ballpoint pen/paper (TINY notebook)
a good book
*good* coffee (working on doing without it...maybe we'll change that to water)
people that get it...
yoga
peppermint tea ( = it's gonna be ok)

*as a nomad, all of these things fit in my bag, on my person, or in my periphery
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Metaphors, the future, the past, the way the world works, the way humans work,

the way body and brain connect, how to relax muscles,

synesthesia and if I might have an alphabetical version of it,

imbuing the mundane environment with some magic, turning my life into a graphic novel - diagramming moments mentally,

trying to figure out why all my best creative ideas come to me in the middle of work when i have no immediate ability to take action (except a tiny notebook to write them down in)

the origin of words.

who would be in my apocalypse survival group (friends that farm, build things, etc..), survival kits,

how online social networking may possibly be deconstructing ours and our future generations interpersonal skills.... eek.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably working , Or F*ing exhausted.. and usually down to drink, dance or socialize about it, but only AFTER yoga
...aaand sometimes I just need to rest my feet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
this. I would rather have had this all come up in conversation at an interesting party with hardly enough beer. the best conversations usually do.

I think real people have histories stranger than fiction... so i might just be a part of this website for the sake of my first novel... you've been warned.

Terms like 'heartwarming' and/or anything else you might find on a hallmark card make me feel like vomiting. also not into red roses or diamonds... cliches make me feel icky.

*apparently i have a lot to share. open book.
