My self-summary
"Ladies and gentleman, I stand before you now because I never stopped dawdling like an eight-year-old on a spring morning on his way to school. Anything can make me stop and look and wonder, and sometimes learn. I am a very happy man. Thank you." 
What I’m doing with my life
"And I asked myself about the present: how wide it was, how deep it was, how much of it was mine to keep."

Basically, im trying to stay in the moment and enjoy what ever it is that im doing. manotany is my kryptonite, change is my sun.

***I've lived like a leaf blowing in the wind for the past few years and enjoyed it. From hiking through Guatemalan Jungles and island hopping in the south Pacific to working various jobs, some in a legally grey area. I did all of this in the selfish pursuit of experience. Life doesn't grow stagnant when the faces and places change often, or so I thought. 2 years ago I began to feel the monotony set in. I decided maybe I needed roots so I shacked up with a woman I was in love with in a cabin on a mountain in East Tn. That didn't pan out. It did allow me the time tk slow down and really figure out what I wanted to do. So I'm here, in Richmond, pursuing a degree in education. I dig the kids, they challenge my personal philosophies.
I’m really good at
"Science is magic that works"
The first things people usually notice about me
"People need good lies. There are too many bad ones"

My eyes. My stately beard. My calves. The aura of mysticism that surrounds me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
"One might be led to suspect that there were all sorts of things going on in the universe which he or she did not thoroughly understand."

I enjoy music that touches the soul. The spectrum is wide but a few examples are:
Shovels and Rope
Anderson .Paak
The Grateful Dead
Tom Waits
The Devil Makes Three
Lenny and the piss poor boys

My favorite movie is Armagedon 2: Armagedon. My favorite show is Cop Rock. Really it's Top Gun and Arrested Development.

The books next to my bed right now are:
Welcome to the Monkey house by Kurt Vonnegut Jr
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
And Lamb by Christopher Moore
^^^this is outdated but a good reflection of my reading preferences.

I fux with food, all kinds. Try me

My go to drink is Buffalo Trace, neat, 3 fingers. I am a whiskey man but I appreciate wine as well. I can take or leave beer, usually something light and crisp as a back for my strong booze.
Six things I could never do without
"Never index your own book."

A good pack
Running water. A river, not indoor plumbing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why."

You. The sun, moon and stars. Obscure rap Lyrics, usually from a Wutang scroll. Did you ever notice how often Ghost and Rae rap about food?
On a typical Friday night I am
"And do you really know what Vodka is like? Jesus! It's just straight alcohol, and they drink it by the tumbler full. Really, some scientists should investigate how it is possible for man to drink such stuff in such huge quantities."

Robe shopping
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
"We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be."

I have a tattoo of a unicorn
I hate Journey
You should message me if
"Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward."

You have something interesting to say. Small talk can be excruciating, I tend to avoid it.
The two of us
