My self-summary
Here's the cool thing: I'm having a moment.
What does that mean?
It means this is my motherfucking time!
Someone needs to be a part of this.

Designer and wannabe writer. Avid reader. Music lover. Bad joke teller.

Non-native like most of you out there.

INFJ.
What I’m doing with my life
This IS NOT IMPORTANT. BUT...

I work at home doing graphic and web design.

I have a lot of half finished poems, roughed outlines for short stories and a couple rants that like to pretend they're essays.

Reading and drawing in random parks.
I’m really good at
Daydreaming. Making breakfast foods.

Being loyal to friends. This has gotten me in trouble in the past. But it's an ideal I refuse to abandon.

I love breaking down stories. Which characters are awesome and why. Is this plot original or too derivative. Which themes make this story shine.

'Drunk Me' is really good at stumbling into random situations and crashing parties. Is that a skill? I think it is.

Overall taste
Post Punk and bass-heavy jam bands appeal to me. And some of that 'art rock' stuff. Whatever that is... Also fantasy/scifi books and period piece TV.

Current Mood
Dan Deacon, Gentlemans Bastards, and Fish Tacos.
The six things I could never do without
1) Stories.
2) IPAs
3) Sarcasm.
4) At least 50 bucks in my wallet.
5) The Unknown.
6) And Pizza? I don't know.

This actually could make up a decent night out for me too. This section kinda sums me up better than anything in the rest of the profile. - Which is kinda lame but you're supposed to think it's awesome.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The project I'm working on, the book I'm reading, the next place I plan to visit. Southeast Asia? The Pacific Northwest? Some sort of Sci-Fi with heavily layered mythological themes? YES PLEASE!

Fonts, colors, ratios... If I could ever write a fantasy book. Should I take an improv class or sailing lessons? How about a letterpress class? When am I going to buy a new bike?
On a typical Friday night I am
Any of the following: Enjoying a show, lounging on the couch, grabbing some beers, reading, writing, working, developing a design or art project, and occasionally traveling.

But this could be any other day of the week too.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The only thing I think relevant to this section would be to say that I'm currently striving towards stability. My early twenties were not as fun as TV told me they would be.
You should message me if
Here's the deal: If you clicked on my page and made it all the way to the bottom to read this then... you should message me.

My point: If you clicked my page, there was a slight attraction. If you're reading this section, that attraction is still possibly there. So follow up on it!
