My self-summary
Endlessly entertained by epistemology. Always applying alliteration attractively. I wish I could call myself a native, but I'm from Berkeley and now live in Oakland, so more realistically I'm on the bandwagon. I do love all the stereotypical crunchy Berkeley hippie stuff like hiking, being a foodie, arguing about the oxford comma, and intersectional feminism. But, somehow and forever, never burning man.
What I’m doing with my life
"What I'm doing with my life" : "Where I work" in 'merican, right? My interior life is mostly reading and writing. A lot of walking, some listening, a little watching, spending time with people on the good days. I also spend a lot of time maintaining the illusion of normalcy.
I’m really good at
Cooking. Conversation. Civics. Circumambulation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books by my favorite authors: The Moviegoer, Tampa, 2666, MaddAddam, Chronic City, Lilith's Brood, Confederacy of Dunces, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Hell's Angels, Lila, Women, Ancillary Justice, The Windup Girl.
Music: Dead Prez, That Dog, Kendrick Lamar, Coeur de Pirate, Postal Service, Eliot Smith, Jenny Lewis, Misterwives, Bun B, Kiiara.
The six things I could never do without
My longest-standing possession is a chef's knife my sister gave me on our eighteenth birthday. So I haven't gone without it longer that I haven't gone without any other particular object.
Family, generally, (biological and chosen).
Technology that brings me media and reminds me what and when to do things.
Books.
Bike.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Meta-Cognition: is my response an example of my tendency to read things literally?
But a lot of my thought process are epistemological or ontological, so it's true as well as a bad joke.
Bad jokes.
Ha ha.
But for realises, though: food, feminism, disability/mental health, politics, baseball, novels, comics, economics, Oakland. Seriously, serious things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've come to think this question means "what potential deal-breakers would you like to reveal." But I would have to know what you consider a deal breaker, which would be jumping to assumptions. Then I'd need to know if putting out an actual deal breaker will be interpreted as a TMI when you're supposed to put a "hot mess" kind of quasi-adorable flaw, which would require a whole other round of mind reading so I guess: I have problems overthinking things, especially relating to social interaction.
You should message me if
If you'd like to have a conversation. Or take a walk- maybe both at the same time! Maybe toward the MOMA. Anyone want to go see the MOMA?
