My self-summary
Hello future friend! (maybe?)

I'm a teacher, musician, and nerd. I've been living in Philly for quite awhile now and really love it. I'm into:

-Card/Board games
-Being a nerd
-Guitars (Gibsons forever!)
-How nice parks are
-The weird ball of hair that the adoption center told me was a dog. I call him Bombur.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working as a music teacher, independently in Philadelphia and through a school out in Ardmore. And teaching music at a preschool. I love teaching, and it's so fun to when someone discovers what they can do on a piano. It's also hilarious how many weird things kids say on a daily basis. Once a kid said I was Batman (<3) and I had a pretend tiger fight.
I’m really good at
Reading. I actually can sort of speed read if I really want to...but it's never as fun as taking my time.

Writing as well. Though I have trouble coming up with good plots. Maybe someday I'll figure out the whole story arc thing.

A friend also referred to me as their Obi Wan Kenobi. So I may have hit my peak...unless they're Anakin I guess.
The first things people usually notice about me
My purple sunglasses 😎
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Currently reading Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Favorites include A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, 2001: A Space Oddysey, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Marriage Plot, The Virgin Suicides, The Phantom Tollbooth, Roverandom, The Graveyard Book, 1984. The Picture of Dorian Gray, Rendezvous With Rama, Stranger in a Strange Land.

*Clearly a trend of science fiction and fantasy happening here.

Movies: My favorite is Lost In Translation. Runner up goes to 2001 A Space Odyssey. Honorable mentions include Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Moon, Interstellar, Inside Out, Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Inglourious Basterds, My Neighbor Totoro (and thus far every Miyazaki film I've com across) Alien, Aliens, Stranger Than Fiction, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and other movies that somehow make you blissfully happy and crushingly sad at the same time.

Shows: Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Parks & Rec, New Girl, Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Bobs Burgers, Star Trek

Music: Lights is my all time favorite. She's my synth pop best friend. Also really love Chvrches, Grimes, Paul Simon, Good Old War, Death Cab, and all kinds of stuff like that.

*****I honestly just need someone to listen to Lights with.

Food: Recently went down the rabbit hole (har har har) of veganism...It's a lot of fun. Still figuring out my favorites. It's pretty amazing how many awesome vegan recipes there are. I made a prettty killer baked ziti with tofu ricotta for Christmas and am way proud of it. Also getting into soup for the winter right now. So...let's make soup :P
Six things I could never do without
My pup!
A presentable pair of shoes
My keys
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the doors to the dwarven halls of Moria are opened using elvish words.
On a typical Friday night I am
Teaching music until about 8 o clock. Sometimes having friends over after. Possibly going somewhere to read, or maybe drink. Occasionally movies? Or shows!
You should message me if
You like sci fi or games or music or food or something like that.
You have a genuine interest in talking, or hanging out, or whatever.
You like Lights. Or even if you just know who she is.
The two of us
