My self-summary
There's very little I could say about myself that I wouldn't want to pair with a conversation of qualifiers and contradictions, but I'll try to come up with a couple of things. I've spent the last few years balancing school with work. I have an MA in philosophy, and a background in non-profit communications and tutoring. I'm also a creative writer, mainly of poetry. In terms of my outlook on life, it's important to me to not let myself get too settled in a routine or accepting of one way of thinking, though not at the expense of staying focused, responsible and responsive to others. I think of myself as shy but that surprises people when I tell them. Reflective is probably a better word than shy. I like getting past politeness to really getting to know another person, but I also very much value taking time to think about what I've experienced and what it might mean. That's probably enough rambling about myself for now. Aren't other people supposed to tell you who you are anyway?
What I’m doing with my life
For now, I'm checking out LA, seeing if I want to move here permanently.
I’m really good at
laughing at very inopportune times; spoonerisms (it's a natural talent); coming up with surprises; remembering the lyrics to songs in old Hollywood musicals; asking questions
The first things people usually notice about me
hmm... I've always wondered. Message me and let me know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Clown (Boll), W H Auden's poetry, anything by Jhumpa Lahiri (it's a complicated relationship), S Y Agnon, Hemingway, Eliot, Woolf, Joyce, the classics in general, Hannah Arendt, Plato, Hegel (another complicated relationship), talmud, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Rilke, Eugene O'Neill, Heart of Darkness... so many others.

Warrior (best movie I've seen recently), Cinema Paradiso, M, Gaslight, Guys and Dolls, the Bicycle Thief, 9 (and I'm not embarrassed to admit it), Groundhog Day, Illuminata, The Bird Cage, Casablanca, Some Like It Hot, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Roman Holiday... I like old movies and I like movies that make me think or laugh really really hard.

Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Office.

Katzenjammer (a new discovery just getting into them), Ben Caplan (same), Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Pink, Adele, Jodi Shaw, Muddy Waters, Son House, Edda James, The White Stripes, Thomasina Winslow, Bessie Smith

Any fresh fruit, elaborate salads... I'm hypoglycemic so I'm on a pretty strict diabetic diet. I still enjoy my food immensely but it's all healthy all the time (except when I slum with splenda and then things get crazy :)
The six things I could never do without
language
novelty
memory
affection
time
a toothbrush
