My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Welcome to my profile - now with illustrative photo captions! I'm getting my MFA in creative writing (poetry). My life right now is a melange of disparate interests - I like to write (fiction, poetry, journalism, etc.), I bike and run and swim, and I compete in triathlons. I love lifting. I play guitar and a tiny bit of mandolin and love to songwrite and play for friends. I did fresh meat for roller derby for awhile and now I'm an NSO (non-skating official) because a lot of my friends broke their legs in roller derby and I break my legs enough because I have a bone disorder already.

I have two pet chickens named Ethel and Quinn. I raised them from chicks and they're well-socialized and like people. I love my chickens like most other people love their cats and/or dogs. I also have a bearded dragon named Heathcliffe who I got for free off Craigslist. He's mercurial but is sweet on his good days. We watch Netflix together frequently. Our shows are Bones and Bob's Burgers, but I do subject Heathcliffe to the occasional horror movie. He loves It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I know this because he walks up to the screen. I also love it, but do not walk up to the screen.

I like to think of myself as an amalgam of April Ludgate's deadpan wit, Leslie Knope's enthusiasm for work, and Chris Treager's irritating charm, but I'm probably being too kind. I also once had an elaborate dream/nightmare structured around the content of the Decemberists song "The Infanta." This may or may not say a good bit about me.

I'm an INTJ, if that sort of thing matters to you. In the interest of full disclosure, one time I took the test again and it said I was an INFJ. I'm introverted but I think I'm decently friendly. I'm a solid Kinsey six. If you aren't familiar with the Kinsey scale, that means I'm supersupersuper gay. It only goes up to six, with six being the gayest.

Incidentally, I have also deluded myself into believing that Kristen Wiig is my soulmate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being an MFA student, which means reading and writing poems and editing poems and writing the occasional paper and earning my keep by working for the English department. I'm also piecing together a thesis. I spend a lot of time trying to form a conception of my own poetic ethos, which probably sounds vain now that I think about it.

Also I'm trying to shape myself some sort of quasi-comfortable place in the world. I'm eager and anxious to figure out my life, and I want to eventually own land. I write a lot of poetry in the meantime.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
writing, I guess? Also communicating via art, and making people laugh. Also overanalyzing the hell out of anything/everything.

I'm also a beast at your mom jokes, but I understand that's like saying I just bought a sweet copy of Windows 95.

...also I'm good at burping really loudly.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
*I have large eyes of indeterminate color.
*A bartender once told me my bone structure was too nice to have been an ugly awkward kid in middle school (totally was).
*An ex-girlfriend said I was "good at eating roughage."
*My pupils are perpetually dilated, leading many to errantly assume my life is a constant acid trip.
* I generally smell like multiple Old Spice products, but on the few occasions I wear perfume, it's Chanel. (Update - I now own 12 kinds of Old Spice bodywash, and I'm unreasonably proud of it. There's a new one called Timber, if anyone was wondering. It's the best. The other new ones smell like sandalwood and blackcurrants, respectively.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I adore Joan Didion and Claudia Emerson and consider them my personal heroes. Louise Gluck, Sylvia Plath in small doses, Mary Oliver, Annie Dillard, and any poetry that (a) does not rhyme and (b) was not written by Walt Whitman.

I still love Mean Girls and Seabiscuit. Les Mis made me cry, and I don't cry at movies. The Virgin Suicides, Black Swan, anything dark and cerebral. Here's the twist at the end: Big Momma's House is my jam.

I like shows that make you think, but also funny TV. I love Parks and Rec. I love Family Guy. I am convinced that Meg and I were separated at birth. I also like watching true crime TV while cleaning and doing pushups. I love Bob's Burgers and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Bones. Also BoJack Horseman, but everyone I've recommended that show to hated it, so I'm going to stop recommending it. A poet buddy recommended it, so maybe it's a show poets like?

I love Rilo Kiley (and therefore, all of Jenny Lewis's solo work. I may or may not be in love with Jenny Lewis. If you don't know who she is, look her up. Please.), Laura Marling, Beach House, Bon Iver, CocoRosie, the Decemberists, Daft Punk, Craft Spells, Washed Out, Fleet Foxes, Florence and the Machine, KT Tunstall, Maps, Old Crow Medicine Show, Washed Out, Bloc Party, Beirut, Bedouin Soundclash, Local Natives, Ponychase, Fiona Apple, Waxahatchee, Daughter, and Bright Eyes. (If I were straight, I'd make it my life's mission to marry Conor Oberst. I am also very sad that Waxahatchee is straight, but I'll go on.) I also like Kid Cudi, Flogging Molly, and George Winston's instrumental piano. I also enjoy a light dusting of Kesha. I like Kanye when I'm tipsy and/or cleaning. I non-ironically love Kreayshawn.

I love my lean protein and especially smoothies with whey protein and Greek yogurt and kale and sometimes a kiwi. Egg whites are incredible. As is okra. I love carrots. And fake meat. I love soy protein. Eggs are good, if I can get them out of the coop before Ethel eats them.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
*my vintage leather Coach bag
*portable notebooks
* chickens and horses
*good friends
* exercise
* hope for the future
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When living ends and dying begins (they're the same, I think), the mind-body continuum, where we go when we die, body vs. soul, what I'm going to write about next, the passage of time (As a grade-schooler, I used to watch the second hand move and think each tick meant one less second to live. I guess I was a morbid kid.) horses, chickens, where I'll be in a few years, what was there before the universe began, what's for breakfast.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hitting up downtown, chilling with friends, holed up alone writing, cleaning, sleeping, playing guitar, or any combination of the above. Except sleeping combined with anything, because I unfortunately can't sleepwalk.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Periodically I get a ridiculous hankering for lemonade. I also use the word hankering.

Also, sometimes when I'm sad, I binge-drink Diet Coke. Or diet Pepsi, depending on what's on sale.

Might as well round it out with a third beverage-related confession. I used to drink a lot of Espolon tequila chiefly because the label had a picture of a skeleton riding a chicken, and I really, really like chickens.

Addendum (not beverage-related): I'm a gold star. You know what that is, right? I've been told it was cooler in the 90s. Alas. Still proud.

New beverage confession: The only beer I really like is PBR. I only tried PBR to begin with because someone told me it was "hipster beer."

(Beverage update: sometimes I drink light beer because I am carb sensitive. I kind of like it, but only because I know it has very few carbs. )

Skinny brunettes are my weakness. Really.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I guess basically I'm looking for gay/queer friends and maybe something more if it works. Below are some assorted weird criteria.

* You're very, very gay. I'd be psyched to meet other Kinsey sixes and/or gold stars, because both of those things seem to be pretty rare.
*You like to write.
* You want to make weird faces at random strangers at dive bars.
* You want to run, swim, bike, or lift with me. (Update: right now I have a stress fracture in my second metatarsal, so I can't run. Ugh.)
*You aren't one of those people who takes up half their profile space talking about how they're in high demand and people hit them up all the time and they're probably way too good for whoever messages them and they probably won't reply. Ain't nobody got time for that highfalutin nonsense.
