Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
One day when I was a kid I picked a spot in my backyard and did my
best to "memorize" it. I said to myself: "If I ever learn how to
time travel, I'll come back to THIS moment, right now!" Then I
waited around for a solid five minutes to see if future me appeared
out of nowhere to greet me with wisdom and knowledge of future
A few years later, having forgotten the original time/spot, I tried
the same thing again somewhere new. Still nothing. I kept this
pattern up every few years, with disappointing results.
To this day I have yet to be visited by a future version of myself.
But I'm convinced that's not because I never learn how to time
travel. Rather, I am simply doing a poor job remembering which
point in time I'm supposed to travel back to. As soon as I lock
that down, I'm sure it'll happen.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently pursuing my MFA in creative writing at Columbia
University, with a few essays and scripts currently under my belt.
When I'm not at work or at school (currently the same location),
you might find me performing improv, organizing a game night, going
camping/hiking/climbing, or otherwise goofing off with friends. To
quote an obscure song I once heard about being addicted to crystal
meth, I live a semi-charmed kinda life.
I recently got into live storytelling, and got one of my stories
professionally animated, which was awesome. I now desperately want
to get some animators indebted to me forever so I can get my entire
life recreated as the world's longest and most pointless
I also purchased a Fitbit in the past year and I've come to realize
how much of my productivity/life comes down to filling up meters
and crossing off checklists. It makes me a little sad, so I go for
a walk to cheer myself up, and then when I see those green step
counter bars fill up I'm happy again!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I want to say I'm a good listener, but I feel like it's one of
those things you're not allowed to say about yourself in earnest.
Modern humility is all about taking yourself down a peg while
hoping for a positive reaction. On an unrelated note, I'm terrible

Probably the soul of a man burdened with self-loathing and doubt,
with an indescribable longing noticeable during those brief moments
when the mask is lowered and his pathos comes into plain
Update: I'm told my bald head is more noticeable. LOL!

Also, as a lifelong New York, I'm also pretty spoiled when it comes
to food. I love just about anything flavorful, sweet and/or spicy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-The money I get from my job.
-The things I buy with the money I get from my job.
-The comforts that come from the things I buy with the money I get
from my job.
-The happiness which emanates from the comforts that come from the
things I buy with the money I get from my job.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The haters. Are they always just gonna hate?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In love. And thank god, because most of the rest of the week has
felt like a pretty big waste of time.
(I'm sure others have done this bit, but I haven't seen it yet, so
I'm citing plausible deniability on this one.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I started a fan club for myself when I was 12. It sounds like the
most narcissistic thing a person could do, I know, but it was a
joke. Mostly. And I kept this joke up - with monthly newsletters
and all - for about 8 years.
