I was born in Plantation, Florida (where the grass is always
greener), but I'd hardly say I was raised here. I spent the
majority of my childhood in Memphis, Tennessee before stopping off
in Houston, Texas for a few years on my way back to Florida, this
time settling in Bradenton. It wasn't long before I abandoned the
area for Lexington, South Carolina where I completed High School
and started my college career at USC. In my second year, I left
school and returned to Florida, yet again, so I could see what
Tampa was like. One thing led to another, as they say, and before I
knew it I had moved to Bradenton, then up to Tallahassee, and
finally back to Bradenton.
What I’m doing with my life
I very much enjoy learning about people and the motivations behind
behaviors. Professionally I've worked at banks, restaurants,
hotels, video stores, and summer camps. I study chemistry.
When I think about it on a grand scale, I'm not doing anything with
my life and I don't think you are, either.
I’m really good at
I'm not very good at romance. I think it's because I talk too much,
but my friends say it's because I think too much.
I'm good with problem solving.
People ask me for help with computer repair, multimedia setup, and
The first things people usually notice about me
More than anything, I hear about my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy all forms of entertainment, although some may be more
entertaining than others.
My book-club is reading the Hobbit, in preparation for the new
movie. In my spare time, though, I'm still working my way through
an Organic Chemistry textbook form 1940.
The latest movies I've enjoyed include Batman and Prometheus. I
also saw Ted, but it was fucking stupid. I very much want to see
Brave, but I haven't had the opportunity.
This summer I have had a lot of fun watching Breaking Bad,
Futurama, Louie, True Blood, Weeds, Wilfred, and Workaholics.
When I listen to music, it's mostly Cake, Smash Mouth, Barenaked
Ladies, Avi Buffalo, and Daft Punk.
I really love trying new foods. I steer away from super greasy
stuff and try to avoid spicy entrees, even though I love them. When
it's not American cuisine, I tend to pick Chinese.
The six things I could never do without
I can do without just about anything. I've realized that there's
nothing clever about listing basic human needs and I think it'd be
inaccurate to say that I couldn't live without the internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
102. The Oldest Moral Judgments - What really are our reactions to
the behavior of someone in our presence? - First of all, we see
what there is in it for us - we regard it only from this point of
view. We take this effect as the intention behind the behavior -
and finally we ascribe the harboring of such intentions as a
permanent quality of the person whose behavior we are observing and
thenceforth call him, for instance, 'a harmful person'. Threefold
error! Threefold primeval blunder! Perhaps inherited from the
animals and their power of judgment! Is the origin of all morality
not to be sought in the detestable petty conclusions: 'what harms
me is something evil (harmful in itself); what harms me once or
several times is the inimical as such and in itself; what is useful
to me once or several times is the friendly as such and in itself'.
O pudenda origo! Does that not mean; to imagine that the paltry,
occasional, often chance relationship of another with ourself is
his essence and most essential being, and to assert that with the
whole world and with himself he is capable only of those
relationships we have experienced with him once or several times?
And does there not repose behind this veritable folly the most
immodest of all secret thoughts: that, because good and evil are
measured according to our reactions, we ourselves must constitute
the principle of the good? -
-Nietzsche (from Daybreak published 1881)
On a typical Friday night I am
My days are somewhat fluid. I keep odd hours and often have a tough
time remembering whether what happened last night actually happened
a few days ago or may be happening in a few hours. Time is a
difficult thing to pin down.
Usually, I think, I join my friends at a bar or house party.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
About twenty years ago I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease and it
bothers me every day of my life. I try not to be a whiny bitch
about it, though.
You should message me if
Just do it.
