Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I take great pleasure in small minute victories.
I work in restaurants. Mostly I've been in kitchens as a result I
make friends nervous when they make dinner. Now I work in the front
of the house, because I like money and developed a distaste for
thankless back breaking labor. I drank my fill of it first.
I grew up in oakland and as a result I am always conscious about
things that may get stolen.
Sometimes books put me into the same state that people get into on
cocaine, where I blow off my friends because I just want to read
one more chapter, and one more and one more, and this will go on
I used to go to boxing classes many hours a week and it left me
with a certain jumpy anxiety that someone was going to hit me and
make math way harder for the rest of my life.
After many years pursuing different creative ambitions I'm going
with music. This is what I'm devoting the bulk of my time, thought
and energy to these days. I always wanted to be a poet, but I had
to learn some open chords so anyone would listen to my grim little
stories. I'm finally not bitter about it anymore.
I read philosophy, but selectively and have the decency not to talk
about it. I'm less into people with complicated overarching
theories than people with smart pragmatic things to say.
I'm most interested in stories ultimately
Since getting on antidepressants I have discovered that other
people often have both positive feelings for me and consider me
attractive. Lexapro is my shit.
I like getting dominated sexually. This is a recent discovery and I
am interested in exploring this dynamic with people who are
awesome. Not that into humiliation or withholding since those hit
some non sexy buttons but other than that feel free to make a pitch
if that is the reason you are writing. Again this isn't necessary
but it is something I'm currently interested in.
I am thinking of leaving Oakland and the U.S. generally. Want to
talk more about this?

other people's less and less. I do not like this. Make me listen to
music when we hang out and tell me why it's good.
Coffee is without a doubt the most important meal of the day. This
may contribute to my forgetfulness of other less important meals.
