My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Not the biggest fan of this section...

Grad student, socialist activist (not all that preachy, I swear!), written-word addict and part-time alcohol researcher more or less sums up how I like to spend my time.

My favorite animal is the platypus. It's just so delightfully improbable.

I grew up in New Jersey and would like to pre-emptively tell anyone who is thinking of asking me "which exit" or trying out their best "Joisey" to knock it off in general. Neither of those things are nearly as big a deal as people from other places think they are.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a grad student in Social Work, so I spend a lot of time reading and writing papers about that sort of stuff, and working on getting street kids to trust me so I can help them get housing, education and jobs and whatnot. I'm usually involved in some way with hatching plans to fight City Hall. I like to write, mostly about politics, when I can find the time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Politics type stuff.
Coming up with absurd ideas for pranks, but somehow not following through. Like going to the opera dressed as Darth Vader and hobnobbing with the 1%.
Attracting drunk people who try to hit me up for free therapy when I'm trying to have some fun.
I make surprisingly fucking good pancakes and can make a whole damn pie from scratch.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My tattoos if I'm wearing clothes that show any of my several tattoos, the fact that my hair gets wavier/curlier the more it grows and the fact that I think shoes achieved perfection with the Chelsea boot tend to pop up pretty often. Also, the beard sometimes. I have lovingly named it "The Scruffy Viking."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Handmaid's Tale is my most recent favorite. George Orwell is pretty damn great, more I think for stuff like Homage to Catalonia than the usual suspects. Haruki Murakami is pretty damn great too, especially Kafka on the Shore and Norwegian Wood. I am embarrassingly familiar with The Game of Thrones books. Apart from that, Spring Snow, The Shock Doctrine, The Sparrow, Great Expectations, The Things They Carried, The Grapes of Wrath, The Dispossessed, The People's History of the US, Invisible Man, Pedagogy of the Oppressed, One Hundred Years of Solitude, The Autobiography of Malcolm X and some comics such as Sandman and Trans-Metropolitan. These are some things that come to mind.

Movies: Adaptation, 12 Angry Men, Seven Samurai and other Kurosawa, Pulp Fiction, The History Boys, Almost Famous, The Big Lebowski, City of God, pretty much any Scorsese I've seen, Rear Window, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Fight Club, This is Spinal Tap, Princess Mononoke, Dazed and Confused.

TV (dammit): The Wire, The Simpsons, Mad Men, Seinfeld, The Sopranos, Vikings and Trailer Park Boys. Also, I will never be too old to love the Gargoyles cartoon.

Music: Alice In Chains, Joseph Arthur, Lowkey, System of a Down, Leonard Cohen, The Coup, At the Drive-in, Murder City Devils, The Clash, The Pogues, Rise Against, 16 Horsepower, Immortal Technique, Speaker Minds, Bad Habitat and Luck-One.

Food: Thai, Sushi, proper New York pizza and bagels.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Some kind of artistic stimulation...books, movies, music, etc.
2. Nicotine, which I keep saying is "just for now."
3. Good people around me.
4. The usual money, food, water, oxygen, etc. answer
5. Purpose.
6. Chances to cause a ruckus for the powers-that-be.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When it comes up, terrible writing, grammar, and abuse of homonyms and homophones.

Writing ideas that have yet to come together.

What corporations are doing wrong, what the government is doing wrong.

Books I haven't read, books I have read, books I'm reading, books I want to read again.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably either catching up on school stuff or drinking. I have been known to karaoke and I'm wondering why I haven't played pool in like a year.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Where would be the fun in that?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over. think we could hang! Those looking for new friends and those looking to do date-like stuff are equally welcome. It would probably be helpful if you're accepting of cigarette smoking.
