Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Before we start I wanted to put those up as headlines in case any
of you reading this knew a good place to pick up some new skills or
wanted to take a minute to teach me something.
A normal conversation with me is probably going to involve a lot of
dry humor usually delivered without expression until I've found out
what your boundaries are.
I'm gonna take a minute to mention something about me and humor, if
you come off as sensitive I'll just self sensor and it ends up
being two bored people wondering why we both bothered.
Initially I usually come off as a warm outgoing individual
genuinely concerned about other people's feelings and quick to
bring cookies in to work or offer a judgement free ear for someone
to talk to, but uhn un, don't be fooled, that's just that paranoia.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
So after years of adventures and misadventures around the U.S. and
the World I've finally escaped Detroit and am taking up life in
Asia for the next few years.
It's a long-long story what I'm up to out here, but if you were to
make three different guesses I'm pretty sure all three would be
correct. It's mostly building up my portfolio do do development
work(NOT aid work) in what's been called the third world.
Hopefully someday soon it'll translate into a life doing
international public health.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Nothing good really. Triage. Chinese fortune telling? That and
taking standardized tests. Writing with my left hand. There's
probably some correlation between those two skills but I'll be
damned if I know what it is.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nothing, I look just like everyone else. After spending a little
time with me people might notice a slight scent of mangoes. Nothing
strange there, I just spend a lot of time at the Body Shop.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm a bibliophile but I mostly enjoy non-fiction type stuff
like works by Jared Diamond or John K. Galbraith. Other than that I
love good satire (e.g. Candide or The Short Timers(You can read it
online, just google it)). Got a kindle this year so I've been
getting stupid with the poli sci stuff.
Movies: I loved beasts of the Southern Wild but I mostly stick to
Satire for my favorites. My life wouldn't be what it is now if it
wasn't for Office Space. Kubrick does well on my list. and Dr.
Strangelove, and A Clockwork Orange make for a good night. Just
telling a good story in general can work for me too though, try to
top City of God.
Shows: Thanks to the 21st Century (Hulu and Youtube) I always get
way too into things when I finally find something I like then it
gets old in like a week, and since I haven't had a T.V. in a decade
it's always something that's gone off the air by the time I've even
heard of it.
What comes to mind first is The Wire, which is probably the only
non-comedy show I like. Breaking Bad was just okay, and I watched
one episode of Mad Men and started wondering what's wrong with TV
these days that this show has good ratings?
I just found a brit-com called Peep-Show which hit the spot,
finally got into Adventure Time and Trailer Park Boys was one of
the first shows I liked in a while when I first saw it last
I know you probably think It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is
awesome but that show is pretty hit or miss. That episode with Gail
the Snail is one of the best things I'd seen on any show that
Music: Fell in love with Motown again but I notice that I just
can't be one of those people who likes everything by any artist,
it's always one or two songs that do it for me.
Some that come to mind are I want to Take You Higher-Sly and The
Family Stone. Standing in the Shadow of Love-The Four Tops.
September-Earth, Wind, and Fire. Fern-Zoe Keating. Tamacun-Rodrigo
Y Gabriella. Where it's At-Beck. What You Know Bout Dat-T.I. Gimmie
Shelter-The Rolling Stones.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Really I want to put down "A solid friend or... six." Which is
true, but eh, that's not really winning me any points, you know so
I'm gonna try something more abstract.
1)A good excuse
2)A Fast Comeback
3)An off color story
4)An inflated sense of self worth
5)This deadpan expression I've been rocking the hell out of
6)...a solid friend
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The old days. The days I hope will someday be the old days.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I haven't had a typical Friday night since I moved out here. That's
not even me trying a sideways flex, I just don't have a good
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm investing more than I can afford into trying to transition away
from jeans and into suits...
Also I hate the Beetles.
