My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm 27 and still silly enough to think that I'm going to have it all figured out one day. Just you wait. The revelations that will make life easy as pie are juuuuust around the corner! (OK, maybe not.)

I'm a maniac for things of the highest quality. I'd rather listen to a really, really good song 200 times than listen to 200 pretty good songs once. Not that listening to 200 pretty good songs once is bad. It's perfectly alright. It just doesn't light that fire.

I am virtually incapable of deception. I never figured out how to operate in the middle ground between candor and silence. This can make it hard for me to open up to people initially. I'm a bit shy, and it's scary to jump into full-on openness with new people. But I find that it works out virtually every time. I'm working on trusting that that's really how it is.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Having experiences!

I've done a bit of traveling. I taught English in Korea from 2009 to 2011. I had never left the country before moving to Seoul, but it seemed like the right move, so I went for it. I got to visit Japan and Thailand as well. Traveling is great because it's very life-affirming. It starts with the premise that the world is full of great things, worth making sacrifices to see and experience.

I like (good) music festivals. Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, up in Live Oak, is my favorite place on Earth.

I'm working at an office-y type office job doing office things. It is OK. The people are nice, and it pays the bills. I will probably be going back to school to become either a counselor/therapist or a technical writer. Very different paths, but both based around communication, which I think is what I'm best at.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Um. Communication!

OK, but seriously. I try to be a good listener, and I usually think that I am. I also think that I'm getting pretty good at knowing when I should make decisions based on intuition and when I should rely on reason. I've been working on that consciously for a while now. Both are totally essential to a happy and healthy life, but it's pretty tricky to get the balance right.

This is such a weird question, isn't it?

I, uh. Have a beard.

(I will soon update my profile picture to reflect this momentous change.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I used to have this filled out with a bigger list of stuff, but I realized I never read anyone else's lists. Instead, I'm going to mention stuff I have seen/read/heard recently.

Books: I just read Crime and Punishment for the first time. Good book! Dostoevsky had great psychological insight. I'm currently reading The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, and it seems good, but I just started it.

Movies: The last 2 good movies I saw were Ed Wood, which is HILARIOUS, and definitely my favorite Burton movie now, and The Master, which was also excellent. I love Paul Thomas Anderson. RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman. :(

Music currently getting a lot of play on my Spotify:
Of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?
Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
friendship, music festivals, days so sunny that it's almost too bright to see, sennheiser HD 280 Pro headphones, trees that look like green exploding fireworks, laundry hot out of the dryer, the sound of wind howling in my ears when i ride my bike, bursts of manic energy that sustain me for days, that beautiful sound in the voices of friends that i call unexpectedly and they are so glad to see that it's me that's calling them, the written word, that feeling i get when i'm doing something improvisational like trying to find the perfect words to comfort a friend and the answer is just. right. there. and for a second everything, everything in the universe is all aligned.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
1. The direction of civilization. Where are we going? What will the future look like? I feel like the world is generally more just than it was in the past. Is this based on some kind of law of human nature, or is it basically happenstance?

2. When I find a really inspiring piece of art, regardless of medium, I will study the hell out of it until I "get it."

3. I mentally rehearse things I'm going to say to people allll the time. Like I said, I'm a little on the shy side, so this is how I deal with that. Sometimes I think I do it too much, but... it works.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm not too tired, I will usually want to go out and do something. What it is doesn't matter all that much. As long as I feel engaged with life. Dinner with friends? Sure. A movie? OK. But if I feel like I'll get that feeling of living, really LIVING, by reading a book on a Friday night, then I am perfectly happy reading a book on a Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have never been in a relationship and am a virgin.

I've met a few people from OKC. Had a few dates here and there. This is my 3rd or 4th profile update, and I've never tried just putting that in my profile. But, I really think it's best to handle it this way.

I'm a little worried that for some people it'll be too much of a... headache? I guess you could say? And, basically, that someone who was otherwise interested might decide it's not worth it. But, you know, that's understandable. If that's how it is, that's how it is. And, anyway, I think I'll have a lot easier time being myself on a date if I'm not distracted by the idea that some "confession" is lurking ahead.

So... Yeah! If you do decide to message me, feel free to either address or ignore this. Either way is absolutely fine.
