My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The mustache commands respect. The beard demands cuddles. The internet demands that I gamify every aspect of my life. And it's kind of weirding me out.

In all seriousness, my profile was pretty schizophrenic. I've decided to pare it back a bit.

I suppose the formerly straight-edge screen name is off-putting to some. Now I'm trying to decide which of the options for 'Drinks' sounds like a happy medium. Most of them make you sound like a drunk or a teetotaler.

Right now, I'm looking for adventure. I've been stuck in a rut and decided that I need to get out and learn new things, travel and volunteer. I also keep very active. Willing to teach me new stuff? Let's go.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved to Chicago for an unpaid internship with a music magazine. Now, exploring and planning. This mostly consists of working at a job that I'm overqualified for and trying to find one that I'm actually qualified for.

My degree is in English and Creative Writing. I'm trying to bring my interests in this and the outdoors together in some kind of new project.

I want to learn to build things.

Everyone needs to spend more time outdoors.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Laughing at myself. Making friends with dogs. Running. Writing poems that I hate a day later. Cleaning, probably because I can't stand to live in clutter.

Grammar. Please.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get a lot of comments on my tattoos? Including people lifting up my sleeve to get a better look. (Hint: Don't do that) The one on my chest is less obvious. It is a lot bigger however.

Also I wear glasses and have a beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

This changes on a daily basis. Music is hard to pin down. I listen to a wide variety.

Just ask about books.

I think lately I've just been buying music to buy it. I love it, but I'm apparently an addict.

There are times when I find non-fiction literature hard to stay interested in. I'm not particularly sure why, because I love learning, but my mind wanders a bit. I'm still working through Origin of the Species. This has been going on for the better part of a year.

Board games are a lot of fun, the more complex the better.

I am a movie addict. I have a huge collection, a fair number of which are utter crap. However, I can watch The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Muppet Movie and Casablanca over and over again.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This is a question I considered deleting, but here:
1. Music
2. Books and writing supplies
3. Exercise
4. My guitar (even though I have no idea how to use it)
5. People
6. Fresh Air
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Dinosaurs. Robots. Travel. Paranoia regarding hygiene even though I know I keep myself clean. Girls in sundresses. The future. Sex. Improving the world. Music. Words. Grammar. Roller-Skating. The outdoors, if I'm not out in them, and I'm probably thinking about them if I'm in them too.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends on the week. Probably staying up too late and then remembering I have work in the morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have minor anxiety. I fight through it, and am awesome.

See? Total self-confidence.

I also like to sing terrible 90s pop-punk in the shower.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'd love to talk to someone who loves the outdoors, keeping active, writing, art and learning. If you can teach me something new, that'd be ideal too.

You're willing to exercise with me or at least put up with my compulsion.

You have an accent or speak another language.

You have an open mind about new things.

Silence is an amenable thing when it happens.

You like facial hair and people attempting to grow facial hair. Also you're not sick of pompadours. I promise I was on that bandwagon became a bandwagon. Not helping, I know.

Let's just talk.
