I love visual art, film, and music, but we all do so I guess we can disregard that as a distinguishing trait. I also skateboard almost everyday. My life is a series of embarrassing moments. Social justice issues are important to me, that said, I'm working on keeping my rants to a minimum. I have a penchant for puns and alliteration. I recently went through a phase where I had a pretty unhealthy relationship with sudoku puzzles. I love to learn new things and being exposed to different walks of life. I think it's weird that people take instagram photos
of their food. If you were to judge me based on my handwriting or handshakes, you'd probably think I'm a terrible person.
What I’m doing with my life
Studying social sciences. I plan on going into social work.
Volunteering. Spending more money than I should on
all the awesomeness around me. I draw when I'm not
working or studying.
I’m really good at
Expressing my opinions. Recognizing that I don't have all the
answers. Giving people the benefit of the doubt. Admitting when I'm
being a jackass. Paying compliments and meaning it. Tech decks (the
little tiny skateboards for your fingers). I recently joined a pool
league. That's some next level depressing shit.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look like somebody they know
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Fitzgerald, Vonnegut, Kafka. Obsessive about music bios and graphic novels, notably Pekar, Robbins, Satrapi, Crumb, Clowse, Burns, Hernandez brothers, Speigelman, Green.
Television: Twin Peaks, Seinfeld, My So-Called Life, and Mr. Show sums it up pretty well. Not very well informed when it comes to TV, admittedly, but I've seen Broad City and think it's pretty hilarious.

Music: Right now, Mississippi records mixtapes, Sublime Frequencies comps, shoegaze, feminist punk/post punk, outsider artists like the Shaggs and R. Stevie Moore, British indie pop. Spacemen 3. The Clean. Roky Erickson and Mazzy Star always.
Food: El Nutri Taco, por que no, zilla sushi.
The six things I could never do without
Skateboard. free boxes. bike lanes. the thyme iced tea from fresh pot. The 90's. Good sketch/stand up comedy
I could, however, do without hearing the following 4 songs in a karaoke bar ever again:
1. Bohemian Rhapsody
2. Sweet Home Alabama
3. Total Eclipse of the Heart
4. Don't Stop Believin'
Seriously guys, where's the originality?
oh, and I could also do without allergies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Power dynamics. Social justice. Cats. elitism. Where's Waldo books
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching mockumentaries, rockumentaries, or shockumentaries. Or
something else entirely.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was raised in a devout mormon household. Weird shit, let me tell
you. The last thing that I shoplifted was A Walk To Remember when I
You should message me if
You have a strong sense of empathy. You acknowledge your relative
privilege. You are passionate about something. You are constantly
working on improving yourself. You are a feminist. You enjoy deep,
meaningful conversation. If you enjoy playing pool, that doesn't
Please do not message me if you: don't think white privilege
exists, think poor people are lazy, are a general asshole.
