My self-summary
If I had to describe myself in three words, they would be 'absent-minded', 'amicable', and 'content."

I love to learn, think, and daydream. I like to listen to people and think about what they have to say. I just want to sit back and watch the world happen in front of me.

I'm a bit of a nomad these days. I'm teaching English in China (back here for the holidays) to children and traveling on the side. I also do some writing and have been published in a couple places (gotta put that journalism degree to work).

I'm moving back to China in early January.
What I’m doing with my life
Just finished a degree in Journalism. Now I'm a nomad.
I’m really good at
Whatever it is I'm doing now seems to be working out for me. Not really sure what that is yet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm really tall. I'm also quiet unless I'm very comfortable or have something worth saying.

Things my friends have said about me recently:

"You're so much happier this year." -a classmate

"You're a really easy person to be around." -a roommate

"You're my favourite drunk." -another roommate

"Alex stop! You are a terrible singer!" -a coworker
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I've always been pretty big into the whole sci-fi fantasy thing, but I'm always trying to branch out and expand my interests. Variety is the spice of life! If I had to choose my ultimate favourite book, I'd probably go with the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, followed closely by the Silmarillion.

Music: My staples seem to be Indie Folk/Rock, a bit of Hip Hop, Rock, and some Electro. But I'm down for a bit of everything. I tend to have a preference for slightly softer stuff. Few of my favourite bands below:

Cloud Cult, Nico Vega, Said the Whale, The Seatbelts, Nujabes, Daft Punk, G. Love and Special Sauce, and anything you might hear at a high school dance in the year 2008.

Movies: I like well made movies and that's about as specific as I can get. I mean, who doesn't right?

Shows: I watch shows with a strong unique theme.

Some of my favourite TV Shows: Cowboy Bebop, Firefly, Kino's Journey, Game of Thrones, Elementary, The X-Files.

Food: Pizza of all kinds. It's so reliably delicious. After that, pasta. I have an incredibly open mind in regards to food. I'll try anything, and I'll often like it, or learn to like it.
Six things I could never do without

-There are specific pens that I really must use. Nothing else compares.

-podcasts. Current podcast reccomendation: Robot, Or Not?

-Cheap food

-So. Many. Hobbies.

-Pulp in my orange juice.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ugh, the future unfortunately.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually I'm working. But if not then I'll be going out with friends, playing video games, reading, watching endless movies and TV Shows, and giggling at webcomics about butts and physics.

In that order.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I daydream during a lot of conversations. I'm really good at catching up on a conversation I've lost track of.
You should message me if
You don't mind that I'm not sticking around very long.
The two of us
