I grew up overseas, though I wasn't an army brat. I lived in Sri
Lanka for 7 years and had the opportunity to travel throughout
childhood. I miss this.
I suppose I'm pretty easy going. I try not to take life too
seriously. Stress kills.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Who knows? I'm often thinking about it.
I wish I could do something creative with my life at the moment -
something that would allow me to move about freely. The thought of
2 weeks off a year and being stuck in the same place is a bit
terrifying. Even if it is New York.
Does anybody ever figure this out entirely?

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Right now - Tenth of December by George Saunders and Slavery by
Another Name (nonfiction). Next -- Naomi Klein's book about climate
change and capitalism.
I'm a huge film buff and always down for some moviegoing. I won't
make a list (as that is impossible), but I'm open to anything.
Hollywood just churns out a bunch of shit.
Shows - Again, a little bit of everything. List could go on
forever. I like how this medium is changing, allowing for content
that wouldn't previously have appealed to the masses on broadcast
TV. Would definitely recommend Transparent to anyone with access to
Amazon. Also, one of my favorites -- The Up Series. Look it up.
Music - Almost everything, I spend a lot of time on Spotify. Most
recently -- Donovan, Vetiver, Punch Brothers, Foxygen, Townes Van
Zandt, Inside Llewyn Davis and that genre, The Books, Emmit Rhodes,
Beck, Leonard Cohen, Future Islands, Caribou, Animal Collective,
Talking Heads, The Feelies, Elvis Costello, Pixies, Unkown Mortal
Orchestra, Cate le Bon, Alvvays, Joni Mitchell. This could go on
