My self-summary
Love to laugh, chat, listen, travel, cook (adequately), read, climb things (that's what she said), make bad jokes, write, watch, sit, play (squash, tennis, 20 questions), walk my brother's dog, cuddle with my kitten, jog, visit my extended family, open my mind to new things, find homes on new continents.

Hyperbole and a Half is my hero blog.

I am smiley, music-driven, and typing away.
What I’m doing with my life
I spend my days writing awesome, positive student stories for my alma mater; perfecting my left hook; and attempting to write the next great American time travel romance novel (oh snap, you thought I was going somewhere more important with that); looking for someone who knows who he is and isn't unconsciously trapped in the game-playing nonsense that is dating these days, although, if he likes real games (such as Mouse Trap, Sorry!, etc.), then I'm on board--literally.
I’m really good at
Unpacking as soon as I get home from vacation.

Jumping around non-stop to Franz Ferdinand or Frightened Rabbit happens more often than not.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm short, but very happy to be here.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Fault In Our Stars blew me away, anything Bill Bryson, World According to Garp, The History of Love, Lolita, Harry P and whatever shenanigan he's up to this school year

Music: Just getting into the virtuosic finesse of Chris Thile and the Punch Brothers, The Lone Bellow, and Hey Marseilles, Two Door Cinema Club keeps me flying, Modest Mouse and the Beatles are all-time loves, other soul-catchers are Mumford, Elbow, U2, Snow Patrol, Guster, Decemberists, Frightened Rabbit, Franz Ferdinand, Aqualung, Mahler, Debussy, Shostakovich, Stravinsky

Films: The Way, Way Back, A Christmas Story, Shaun of the Dead, Steel Magnolias, The Full Monty, Ferris Bueller, Love Actually, Bring It On (damn straight, spirit fingers!) Amelie, Austen adaptations

TV: Anything smart and/or Aaron Sorkin/Tina Fey/British/New Zealand's fourth most popular folk duo

Food: I'm very low maintenance in this department. Just bring me to Chinatown.
Six things I could never do without
Loved ones
Laughter (especially at myself)
Slug Days (requiring all sorts of non-foodlike foods and guilty pleasure movies)
A beautiful lyric
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where I can go with what I have and how far I can take myself.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the shelter, then boxing/dancing around like a maniac/reading something addictive/writing something that needs editing/watching my cat knead a blanket into oblivion...oh, wait...that's every night...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ke$ha is on my latest playlist, smack in between The Cure and Avett Brothers. Sorry, guys.
You should message me if
you can come up with something better to say than, "Wow, I am really into yellow fever. Let us talk," and none of your pictures show you in an Oriental Love Palace.

And I stole this from a cool dude on here: "Messages that sound leering or like heavy breathing are creepy and will be shown to friends and made fun of."
The two of us
