My self-summary
I'm a bit of a wanderer at heart, if not always in practice. I believe that Hammocks are perhaps the best furniture ever invented. In practice I am a hard worker and very rooted in my community. I like to set goals and finish them. I believe in the importance of education, but that does not always mean formal education. I have spent 16 of my 26 adult years in school either part or full time. I am neither proud nor ashamed of this fact, but it is nonetheless a fact. I have never had a full time paying job that depended on my having any of that education, so it was money and time well spent (haha). I enjoy good natured sarcasm. To the best of my knowledge I am not an asshole and I seem to get along with most people. I dislike elitism.

I enjoy each decade of my life more than the last. I plan on keeping that going. I have lived an unconventional life in some respects. I am not afraid of conventionality, I just don't see it as inherently valuable. At the same time I do recognize that often there are good reasons to follow the herd--we all live in houses after all.
What I’m doing with my life
I was a tattooist for the last 17 years and still do that on a part time basis. Right now I am working on a PhD in political science and will be working on it for another 3 years at least. After that I hope I get my life back! On the weekends I still work to make some extra cash. Nevertheless, I make time for the people I love (friends and some family)

Whenever I get the time I like to get out to/in the ocean. I like to sail and am learning to surf (still not good at it and may never be, but I have fun).

I just got back from Panama (beginning the preliminary research for my dissertation). I love it down there and am fantasizing about living someplace warm near a beach as the frosty fingers of the New England winter approach.
I’m really good at
I give good back rubs, I write well, I make tamales, and I can drone on and on about esoteric crap that no sensible person would ever be bothered with. Also, I'm a very solid tattooist.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that who I am does not meet their expectations based on how I look.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Brothers Karamazov is my all time favorite, The Innocents Abroad (Twain), and Around the World Alone (Slocum) were also great reads. Right now I read so much for school that I have little time for leisure reading.

Movies: I like all kinds of movies--not too picky there--I like both serious films and complete schlock.

Shows (TV, I assume): 30 Rock, That Mitchell and Webb Look, Trailer Park Boys, and other things found on Netflix. I don't have an actual TV hooked up these days.

Music: Again all over the map. I do have a near-zero-tolerance policy for Andrew Lloyd Weber and most musical theater. I also cannot abide psuedo-patriotic maudlin new country. Other than that I will listen to classical, some jazz, punk rock, pop, hardcore, Latin music, "alt" country, etc.

Food: For meat I normally only eat fish and poultry and have been circling the conversion to vegetarianism. When I'm just buying food for myself it's simple and pretty much vegan--I like eating at home theses days.
The six things I could never do without
Hyperbole aside, here's a list of things I would strongly prefer not to live without:
good books,
my dog,
the ocean,
exercise (preferably outdoor),
I spend a lot of time thinking about
random crap...

Theories of political development, boats, surfing, starting an international shipping company that uses green technologies, houses, travel, escaping civilization, my friends, my family, dating, sex...not necessarily in that order.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with friends or at home doing schoolwork.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cried watching Orange County and I'm still not really sure why--it could have been the teenage angst of Collin Hanks, it might have been Jack Black in his underwear, or maybe it was John Lithgow (sp?) as the distant father, who knows really?
