My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Sometimes, randomly, and always without warning, a realization hits me like a diamond bullet to the temple; life is fucking weird.

The last mammoth died about 3600 years ago. When the Giza pyramids had already been around for 1000 years.
Humans landed on the moon just 66 years after the first airplane took off. I was born before the World Wide Web was even invented. People work in laboratories in space and wars are beginning to be fought with robots. Not to mention, the other day I ended up at a party where saw a guy put his own dick in his own ass.

It kind of blows my mind that humanity gets anything done and doesn't just sit around thinking about how weird stuff is.

Anyway...

I'm a reverse expat. I was born here, but I grew up outside the states. So in a way I never really lived at 'home' until I moved back to the city in my early 20s.

I spent my formative years in Sweden and it made me a bit of a cliche. I love summer drinking, social democracy, feminism, atheism, saunas, socialized education, snowboarding, socialized healthcare, and I have a bit of seasonal mood disorder.

Sadly, I do not have an accent. I think having an accent would have gotten me out of a lot of trouble when I first moved back. Americans are very sensitive to language.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Staying up late on a Tuesday night writing an online dating profile is apparently what I'm doing. It really makes me wonder what I should be doing with my life. I wonder how many people's quests for a higher calling have started in this exact situation.

I'm going to look up some volunteer work after I'm done filling this out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Eating whatever is put in front of me
- Giving massages and giving them often
- Lifting heavy things
- Safewords and consent
- Living out of a backpack
- Not being bored
- Hanging out with animals
- Growing a beard
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Anyone who really likes Catcher in the Rye is screwed on this site. Whenever I see someone who lists it and/or other high school books, like To Kill a Mockingbird, etc, I assume they haven't read since high school.

My all time favorite book is The Little Prince. Not because it's very complicated, but because it makes a lot of sense.

I read a lot. Dirty pleasures are Lovecraft, Terry Pratchett, William Gibson. I read stuff like that when I don't feel like thinking too much. I try to read every other book with something that forces me to grow, think, and feel a bit. it can be hard to properly digest something that changes you as a person. Lately I've been reading William S Burroughs and a few ethnographies.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
We all need food and water. We all go insane without human contact. So I'll not include those in my list.

1. Baths
2. Backscratches
3. Being jacked into the net
4. Audiobooks/podcasts
5. Scheduled time for working out at least every other day
6. Travel
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Etymology. Sometimes you can track the evolution of an idea through history just by looking at the way a word is used. Where did the ideas in your head originate and why?

Silly pop trivia. Like my theory that it's actually the goblins in the Harry Potter universe that keep the wizard population from taking over the normal world. They control the wizard economy, so they have the most to gain. Or maybe the catholic church is run by evil wizards.

How people work, and why they work.

Naked people. Food. Good naps. More food and naked people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
A list of my last few Friday activities. For science.

Feb 20: Got stoned for the first time in a year and looked at the stars in the Caribbean night sky.

Feb 13: Friday the 13th. Took one if my best friends to a spa and a great dinner. Then went home, took half a Xanax and slept for 14 hours.

Feb 6: Went to a lesbian erotica reading. Then drank scotch and played fishbowl with a group of friends.

Jan 30: Flew to Dallas because I had never been to Texas. Shot guns, hung out in McMansions, and helped a new friend shave her head.

Jan 23: Had dinner with by brother, my cousin, and the first really close friend I made in New York. We had tequila, and tacos. Then beers at my favorite dive bar. My old boss showed up and we had a snowball fight.

Jan 16: It's rather fuzzy. I remember lots of martinis and some burlesque. The next day's hangover on the other hand is firmly planted in my memory.

Jan 9: Friend's birthday. He likes beer and dancing, so we drank beer and danced.

Jan 2: Still recovering from New Years and jet lag. Seamless and Netflix. I discovered Always Sunny in Philadelphia and watched all of it.

Dec 26: Old friend's birthday in Stockholm. Lots of mead and darkness.

Dec 19: Day drinking in Paris. Gave a new friend moral support while she flashed Paris from the Eiffel tower.

Dec 12: Day drinking and 8 hour walk in London. Touristy stuff.

Dec 5: "Day" drinking in Iceland hostel. Too fucking cold and dark to walk around for more than an hour. Roomed with Australians and gained a new appreciation for the word cunt.

Apparently I drink a lot on Fridays.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
The bar seems to be set kind of low here on the internet, so I want to point out that I understand a few things that should be standard, but seem not to be.

I don't think anyone on this site owes me anything. If someone isn't interested in interacting with me I move on without contempt.

I know I don't have the right to judge anyone else's life (unless they are hurting other people, non-consensually). The harshest words I will type on here is that I might agree to disagree with someone.

On a more positive note you should write me because hanging out and doing stuff is fun! I want to eat all the food, talk all the talks, and do all the things!
