My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First order of business: please ignore the stupid stupid username. We've all been young. It was a mistake. Plus, I refuse to cough up the 60 dollars it would take to make the change. Think of it as a regrettable tattoo that no amount of scrubbing will remove.

I'm from small town Kansas, but I spent a year and a half in big city London. I wouldn't say I have a big city personality (so I don't know why folks tend to take me for a New Yorker): I'm usually pretty un-flashy. But I'm also kind of drawn to big cities, and I'm happiest when I'm living in one.

I'm kind of a throwback: I don't twitter, rarely Facebook, seldom tumbl. It's not that I disapprove of social fact I envy proficient twitterers, prolific face bookers, etc. It's just not part of my DNA; I'm too private. Online dating profiles are probably as close as I'll ever get to starting my own blog.

Friends say I'm odd-ball (in a fun way!), and I do have quirks: I've worn the same kind of shoes since high school; I plow through crossword puzzles; I enthuse (nothing odd there I guess). But they also say I'm a pretty nice, good guy, and not to pile on with the self-compliments but that's probably true. Also, three's my lucky number, so it's probably a good time to wrap this thing up.

BTW, I moved to Chicago from elsewhere. that in mind? Does my status as a "transplant" make me more dateable? I'm an exotic flower so message me already.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I wish I could say I was "living in the moment" but that's not really my strong suit. This is my strong suit. I worked as an editor/researcher post-college, but after a while, the material I was studying stopped being interesting. Now I'm in the middle of a quarter-life career change. Ask me about it! I recently moved to Chicago from Minneapolis to start grad school. The long and winding road, etc etc.

Here's an update for you guys: I graduated from graduate school, and now I'm a certifiable expert on graduating. I've embarked on a exploratory voyage through the world of creative temping, and I'm also applying to PhD programs, just to add a little more fancery to my fancy pants. My research is on the blah-de-blah blah blah and it will totally upend your paradigms on bee-be-do-bop bop because I am a SERIOUS SCHOLAR.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

"King of the Hill" is an unfairly overlooked cartoon.

People think "Being John Malcovitch" is gratuitously absurd but it's totally not.

No one reads "Little, Big" because it's out of print.

Pizza pie?

Also, I'm that kind of snob that likes a book, movie or tv show a little less when everybody else starts liking it. So sue me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1)a quiet place to live and
2)read my books;
3)knowledge of spring and
4)the possibility of walks;
5)my lucky chair,
6)my fancy, pin-striped pants

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Nike Motto

Please don't message me if:
-Your last name contains the letter "h".
-Your ancestors came to this country on the Mayflower, or you can trace your lineage back to the pilgrims.
-Red is your favorite color.
-Curly hair.

I'm totally kidding. Capricious deal-breakers are the height of millennial silliness.

Ok also, while I'm picking on folks, let's all just get the word "obligatory" out of our system. As in "obligatory bathroom selfie" or "obligatory duck face"...Enough already. It's like everybody's caught the "using the word 'obligatory'" virus. Is there such a thing as meta-generic? Posting "obligatory" pictures of yourself is meta-generic. Let's all say it together: "Obligatory." "Obligatory, obligatory obligatory." "OBLIGATORY!" There. Now we don’t have to use this word anymore.
