What I’m doing with my life
Philosophy degree, IT career, psychedelics, AA meetings, etc.

Cooking, making people laugh, guiding people through psychedelic journeys, spotting cute guys in a crowd.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes, a Cuban woman once asked if she could buy them..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
Philosophy as a way of life, by Pierre Hadot

and (sigh) Apollo 13 by Ron Howard because I love the history of the space program

Music:
I am obsessed with a genre of EDM music called Psytrance, it makes up about 90% of my listening. I also like folk, indie rock, and some other types of EDM (House, Techno, etc.)

I try to roughly stick to a modified version of a Paleo diet called The Perfect Health Diet http://perfecthealthdiet.com/the-diet/
The six things I could never do without
Plato's dialogues
LGBT rights
Hot coffee
A queen size bed or larger
Art, in all of its forms
Sarcasm, the dryer the better
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How different my life would be if people knew what I was thinking
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner with a good conversationalist at a small family run restaurant, seeing an "art film" or jazz show, and holding a beautiful man in my arms discussing the Platonic forms.
