establishments. Which is great, because my cooking skills are
limited to the microwave and boiling water. As a result of this, I

I want to know a lot about everything, so I spend a lot of time
reading and absorbing information. I'm always up for learning
something new... if you can teach me something, I'm interested in
talking to you!
I'm fairly shy and tentative around new people. Sometimes I get
around this by drinking, which makes me care less about how I
appear to others. Anecdotally, this makes me very friendly.
I've lived in five different states, but have moved between states
way more than that. I guess I'm on some sort of loop that I cannot

I wanted to do as a kid, and its pretty sweet so far!
I'm trying to travel a bit, although it is hard finding the time.

advice that people don't want to hear.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I clearly have no sense of fashion. I'm also brutally honest.
Actually the fashion part has been getting better recently due to
the intervention of some of my friends. Sometimes I even get
complements on my appearance... which causes me to completely
freeze up in shock.

1. My memories - They're pretty much what makes me... well, me. The
nurture part of "nature vs nurture" and all that.
2. My glasses! - If I can't see, I'm gonna be in some serious
3. A plan - Hopefully one that comes together.
4. The internet - It is a repository of knowledge and an effective

limit to how many articles of clothing I can take off.

You know, deep thoughts.
Also what I'm going to be eating in the near future.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a house party, watching a movie, going out to dinner, out on the
town, reading, playing games.
