My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm on extended vacation in PA, stretching my cocoon as I metamorphose from a bookworm into a social butterfly. I will be a social butterfly when I return home to Oakland, CA. In the meantime, I'm looking for people to explore the real me.

* As to my personality: *
I am a born executive, or "Field Marshal" (to use Dr. David Keirsey's term) personality type - Extraverted Intuitive Thinking Judge, or ENTJ. Sometimes being broke suppresses the Extraversion, so I can come off as a behind the scenes, "Master Mind" type (INTJ) instead. Sometimes my Master Mind tendencies can seem autistic, though they are not. Other times my "Field Marshal" tendencies can seem narcissistic, though they are not. In either case, my personality suits me for leadership.

I have been a leader all my life. I was in student government for 8 years during grade school (5th through 12th), including 4 years as student body president (9th through 12th). After high school, I worked my way up nonprofit ranks as chapter advisor, regional director, research and education director, and president of a nonprofit. I also completed community college and transferred to UC Berkeley, where I stagnated for want of funding.

More recently, I took part in Occupy Oakland, where I was part of the Tactical Action Committee. I have been in and out of various hard times and have lived on the streets for months on end in the past. I can live in luxury later, when I have settled my lawsuits and gotten back into and through school. That value choice of mind over matter is the best summary of myself I can think of.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am engaging in a wide variety of creative, political and personal pursuits.

* On the creative side: *
I'm writing stories for a screenplay while I learn the art of screenwriting.
I'm writing a young adult novel that I hope will form the basis for my first screenplay.
I'm learning Latin.

* On the political side: *
I'm conducting public interest litigation. Specifically:
- I'm suing the UC Regents to strike down back door affirmative action, and to get back in to finish my degree.
- I'm suing the school district and doctors who treated me to establish precedents in favor of gifted education and against labelling and drugging tormented geniuses.
- I'm suing the Attorney General of California for a few different reasons, mainly for writs of mandate to compel her to give young people and children equal protection of law.
- I'm suing to end the War on Drugs using a First Amendment angle.
There's more, but these are the highlights.

* On the personal side: *
- I'm recovering from three illnesses. This takes a lot of my energy away from the other pursuits and slows them down somewhat.
- I've been ordained since I was 16, but I'm no longer preaching or wearing the collar. God has better use for me and for my Holy Orders than a pulpit. I no longer use my religious authority for any purpose, but God is still very important to me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Persistence, taste, creativity.

I'm great at carrying on conversations with random strangers on the BART (subway) system. I can talk my way from Bay Fair to Berkeley, which is a 30-minute ride, with someone I've never met before, provided that we have at least one shared interest, or provided that he or she is tolerably good looking.

Survival! I'm good at staying alive and well in conditions in which most people would be miserable. I can pack a backpack in such a way that my papers, my socks and my sleeping bag stay dry in a driving rain.

I'm good at eating well in limited cooking conditions. Hint: Cut the meat thin, sear it rare, and have it with veggies, paleo style.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The first thing people notice about me is my bigness. This is not physical bigness only, as I am unexceptionally well-built. Rather, I have the same presence that I developed by majoring in theater for a year. I am big, bold, brassy, and sometimes a little bossy. This allows me to give you the good time you deserve.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS: Bourdieu's Language and Symbolic Power, Allen Mandelbaum's translation of Dante's Divine Comedy, Foucault's Birth of the Clinic, and Aristotle's Rhetoric are among my many, many favorite books. My current reading includes Machiavelli's Discourses on Livy, Bourdieu's Distinction and Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics.

MOVIES: I did not watch movies at all in high school. After graduation, I loved Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist and The Bridge Over The River Kwai. I liked the entire Friday series, although I found it silly, and Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph of the Will, although I found its Nazi content repugnant. I enjoy subtitled films, because film is a visual medium, and the loss of verbal meaning allows the tone of voice to communicate more fully. Recent favorites in that category were Mishima: A Life in Four Episodes and Blue is the Warmest Color. I disliked Toy Story and Borat.

SHOWS: I do not watch television when I am not sick. When I am sick, I tolerate cop dramas and Law & Order reruns.

FOOD: My taste in food is the one place where my foster youth upbringing trumps my upper-middle-class roots. I do not care much for the refinement of haute cuisine. I like sushi, of the buffet or conveyor belt style. When I eat at a good sushiya, I order omakase and let the itamae choose, as I am clueless. Someday, I will care about the nuances of my food. Today I care that it is rich, plentiful and present.

I am supposed to be paleo for health reasons. When I am paleo, I mainline taco salads and teriyaki chicken salads. I have a weak spot for salsa verde. Cilantro: yes, please. When I am not, I mainline corn chips and diet A&W. I have a weak spot for lasagne, pizza and such things. Wine is my one exception to the paleo diet: I drink it when it's served, whether I'm paleo or not.

MUSIC: Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, G.F. Handel, John Williams, L. van Beethoven, Jean-Luc Ponty, Windham Hill, Grover Cleveland Alexander, The Eagles, Elton John, Aerosmith, Foreigner, Andreas Vollenweider, and further on down an infinitely long list.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Air
Water
Food
Sleep
Intellectual stimulation
Social contact
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
* How to get and show the signs and symbols of who and what I am.
* Girls such as YOU.
* Where my next bear hug is coming from.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cramming a book into my head.

Soon enough, the answer will be: At a PARTY! Yet I'm not rushing myself. Slitting the rose doesn't make it blossom.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I require cuddles before, after and aside from sex.
