My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The first job I ever applied for was that of a baker's assistant. When I was 10. I got the job, but he paid me in cupcakes. In high school, I was elected "guy who makes the memories we will all look back on." As a sophomore in college, I posed as a gospel singer in order to earn a way into a Choir that was doing a US tour just to get a free trip to Chicago so that I could Comfort my best friend, who was having a hard time. The editors of the New Yorker have called me "a strong voice" and someone that they "look forward to reading in the future" in their rejection letters. I don't always drink beer, but when I do… I have my EpiPen ready because I'm allergic to wheat.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I set out to pursue happiness this year, and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I'm taking risks, trying new things, and not over-thinking every action until it's lost its magic. I'm writing, singing, running, biking, cooking, dancing , and picking up new hobbies. The best part about climbing into a new self is that everything is new.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Wrestling with big ideas, and deep thoughts. Nothing is sexier to me than being shown a perspective of life that I've never perceived before. I like having my mind blown.

I've also got this knack for finding adventures.

And I cook well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Book: A Sense of an Ending was brilliant. Catch-22, Speaker for the Dead. Also anything by Steinbeck, Tobias Wolfe, Adam Levin, Gaiman, and Neil Stevenson. I'm dabbling in David Foster Wallace. I feel like there are a hundred more books, all sorts of contemporary fiction. I devour literature, and in the summers I can read a book a day. Oh! and My Name is Asher Lev.

I love modernist poetry. ee cummings is a god.

Movie: Have you seen "In Bruges" I don't mean to be all movier-than-thou, but it's fantastic. Go see it. And "Lucky Number Sleven"

Also.... Daniel Craig is the best Bond. I said it; I mean it.

Netflix (who watches TV anymore): Mad men and House of cards are just amazing. I am dying to see the third season on Sherlock, and i love Black's Books. and "Yeah, Mr. White. Yeah, Science!"

Music: Counting Crows, Daft punk, Metric, Chanticleer, Zeppelin, Dave Brubeck, The xx, Modest Mouse, Mumford and Sons, and Outkast. I'm all over the place.

And sharing good food and good alcohol.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My writing notebook and my pen. I take them everywhere.

2) My pipe. It's a vice, I get it, but it's classy. And goes well with scotch.

3) Meeting strangers. I love meeting new people, and there are so many of them in the world!

4) This American Life. (I briefly met Ira Glass; if that's not exciting to you...)

5) Good food. The kind of food that makes you go, "yeah, I'm pretty sure this is the reason we exist."

6) The ability to remain calm in the midst of chaos.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about whether Free Will exists and how to distill that endless train of thought into a novel that the New York Times would describe as "a rollickin' good time" and "existential doubt was never this much fun!"

Also why women don't use pickup lines. The only exception was this: once at a bar, a woman slid up next to me, put her hand on mine and asked, "are you married?" I was so surprised I just said, "No." Then she asked, "why not?" The only thing that came to my mind was that I was a busy teacher who had dedicated his time to his students and hadn't yet found the woman who wanted to be a part of that deep commitment I'd made to them, (which is a completely bullshit answer), but all I managed to say was, "I have like 80 kids. And they need me." before turning awkwardly and walking away.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...just realizing that there is no school tomorrow! is it too late to make plans?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I cook, I'll narrate the whole time like I'm a chef on the food network. I do this even when I'm alone.

also I sing when I'm nervous. in Italian.

Also I dont have 80 kids.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You love literature, if you love new experiences, if you can be spontaneous and outgoing, and/or if I made you smile. Or if you're looking for someone to challenge. I like challenges.

You should message me if you're looking for someone to enjoy life with, not for someone to make you happy.
