Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey all, my name is Brett.
Welcome to my "Yes Man" year. I've decided I've done too much
sitting at home and not enough getting out and experiencing things
as of late, so for the year of 2014 I have to say yes to (almost)
everything thrown my way. Should be a good time.
Been working at Starbucks for a couple years now, current
aspirations are management within the company. I've really enjoyed
my time there so far and hope I can make a career out of it. The
free pound of coffee they give employees each week is nearly
incentive enough - I love me some caffeine. I also spend a fair
share of my time writing for a website a friend and I started up,
we review various medias: TV, Movies, Video Games, etc. If you'd be
interested in reading any of our work let me know!
When not at work or socializing, I like to spend my time reading or
going on online adventures in a constant quest for knowledge. I'm
currently enrolled in a psychology course on Coursera, a website
set up by universities around the world to offer free post
secondary education. I became unbelievably excited about the idea
of free education and will be taking everything I possibly can.
Already signed up for a Calculus course coming up pretty soon,
because why not? I'm also simultaneously learning Japanese so I can
take a trip out to the beautiful countrysides and the massive
I'm very seriously looking to get together with someone in real
life, so if you do decide to message me please keep in mind I'd
rather not do the whole endless messages online thing. There's only
so much you can learn through a computer screen, interpersonal
interaction is where it's at!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working my ass off to climb the corporate ladder at Starbucks!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Everything except bowling, I'm AWFUL at bowling. Seriously though,
I'd say video games and procrastinating. I also like to think I'm
good at singing, but what I hear could be different from what
others hear. We'll probably never know, as I'll likely never
actually sing to anyone other than myself
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My wit. Put me into a semi-comfortable social situation and I'll
send you into fits of laughter you'll have trouble recovering from.
May sound cocky, but I can be damn funny when I want to be.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Catcher in the Rye, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Running
with Scissors, anything Terry Goodkind, and the Dark Tower series
by Stephen King. And there are many, many more.
Shows: So many. Breaking Bad, Californication, Grey's Anatomy,
Weeds (up to season 3's finale... Then it just got way too
ridiculous), Supernatural, and Game of Thrones just to name a
Music: Generally enjoy most things, but some favourites are Arcade
Fire, The National, Liam Finn, Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Nujabes,
The Hold Steady... There are just too many bands I love to name on
Food: Honestly, I love a good tofu rice dish. Don't get me wrong,
I'll have the occasional pizza or prime rib dinner, but healthy
food prepared well not only tastes awesome but makes you feel great
after you eat it, which can't be said for the aforementioned pizza
or prime rib.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends and Family (which I group together as one), and that might
well be it. I'm quite adaptable, and while I spend a lot of time on
the computer and/or my cell phone, I would never say I couldn't do
without them. Perhaps my car, it would be pretty sad to not have
the freedom to come and go as I please.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the Universe, and Everything. Seriously. And the human mind -
how it works, what it means, and the hard problem of consciousness.
Kudos if you know what I'm referring to.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out with friends doing crazy things or sitting at home
watching television or movies, possibly playing games. Either way,
I'm quite happy. Gotta enjoy the little things, and Friday is just
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My life is an open book, really. There's precious little I won't
admit to. Ask and I shall answer.
