My self-summary
i'm a pretentious weirdo who tries to be good to people insofar as i am able. i'm a leftist and i will talk for literally hours about almost anything + i try really hard to be brooding instead of mopey
What I’m doing with my life
i'm a recent college graduate trying to do that whole "writing" thing and side-eyeing grad school. i would like to be a musty ol professor of shakespeare with a rad tweed jacket and a shouty voice.

i also just got back from studying kafka + stuff in prague
I’m really good at
keeping calm when strangeness prevails, listening to stories, getting happy and melancholy at the same time

i have been told i am very good at smoochin' but there is really no way for me to objectively verify aforementioned smoochin' proficiency

i am a pretty ok kickboxer and was a championship fencer when i was a lil nerd teen

i try my best to be a feminist/queer/trans* ally without being a self-congratulatory dick about it and i hope i do a good job
The first things people usually notice about me
i have a pouty mouf and dimples
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
my favorite authors are pynchon, nabokov, o'connor and marquez. and borges and dostoevsky and and and!

my favorite poets are rilke and sappho and wallace stevens and bp nichols, and lorca is cool too

i'm a shakespeare scholar so i guess i'm okay with him too. i GUESS

i don't watch many movies and i'm not sure why? i have a soft spot the size of the sun for martial arts movies though

i love twin peaks, deadwood, rome, parks and rec, louie, arrested development, doctor who, and a bunch of other stuff.

i listen to a lot of hip hop and yowly punk, recently i've been pretty into sleater kinney and sarkodie. i grew up on the pixies and wutang so you can probably extrapolate my current tastes from there.
The six things I could never do without
BOOKS sorry i didn't mean to shout but yeah, books, especially old books with torn + crinkled pages that smell of rot

if i stopped writing i would probably just rust unto death.

i like being around animals a lot, especially dogs and birds. birds are the best of anything.

i get antsy if i spend too long away from mountains.

the ability to spontaneously cut my own hair.

and hidden sixth option i guess?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
postmodernism! feminist theory! books about postmodernism and feminist theory! poems!
On a typical Friday night I am
writing or drinking or both. sometimes i am out having adventures
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i share major briggs' greatest fear
You should message me if
you want to talk about books or art or birds or make out or something! any or all of those things

seriously even if you aren't romantically interested in me i really love to meet new people + talk about cool stuff so hmu
