My self-summary
(I am back in Grand Rapids and in need of more queer friends!!) Yoooo. First thing's first: If you ever need a beer buddy to go to pubs with and unabashedly drink PBR I'm your guy. Beer is a social activity that not enough people take advantage of. I actually really like updating my profile here. It forces me to be introspective, which is not a natural skill of mine. I tend to go through phases of overshare/undershare, and I hope to be somewhere in the middle right now. If there's some glaring absence in my profile just ask!

I'm interested in comic books and cats and beer and queerness and sociopolitical anarchy and language and tarot cards (The Aquarian Tarot by David Palladini is so pretty) and television and dogs and archery and dumb walks (all of those 'and's are on purpose. It's a Whitman thing).
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a librarian and I need to be reading right now :P
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Absurdly long list of talking points I put on here when I was 20.

BOOKS
The City and the Pillar by Gore Vidal, Mules and Men by Zora Neale Hurston, The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman, Moby Dick by Herman Melville, and to keep the list short, I'll end at Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. I read a lot, so just ask and who knows! This is just a short list of my absolute favorites. I decided not to update this list anymore because it's frustrating to keep up. Yo I like books get off my back.

MOVIES
I tried keeping this short...I failed: Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Star Trek (2009), Flash Gordon (1980), Les Miserables, Kill Bill I & II, Wall-E, Marie Antoinette, The Wind That Shakes the Barley, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Belle, Pitch Perfect, V for Vendetta, and literally anything from Studio Ghibli. Seriously, if Ghibli made it or Miyazaki played a hand in it, I love it. I will never dislike a Ghibli movie. My favorite is Kiki's Delivery Service. Followed closely by Princess Mononoke.

SHOWS
Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Regular Show, Ed, Edd, & Eddy, Pushing Daisies, Space Dandy, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, True Blood, Teen Wolf, Tyrant, Halt and Catch Fire, House Hunters/International, Bob's Burgers, Love It or Lost It, Property Brothers, Star Trek (DS9, TNG, TOS), and American Horror Story...I try to keep my television light.

MUSIC
The Killers, Beyoncé, Adele. Those are my mainstays. You're honestly going to have to ask about others because they come and go. Of Monsters & Men, Fleetwood Mac, Streetlight Manifesto, Lorde, Kanye West, Matt & Kim, Iron & Wine, Deb Talan, Johnnyswim, Sia, some bluegrass...it varies.

VIDEO GAMES (because fuck food that's why)
I like Mass Effect, Skyrim, The Last of Us, and Destiny. I'll play whatever but that's an expensive hobby I can't keep up with. I just got Destiny for the PS3 and I need strike team/crucible friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be an adult???

Also thinking about going on actual adventures. Like with swords and shit. I need to vanquish evil.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking probably. Avoiding cleaning and reading. Watching tv. Playing video games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really want to be a werewolf. They're cool as shit. This isn't private at all. If you know me well enough you know about my unabashed obsession with werewolves.
You should message me if
Talk to me about your school, or what kind of future you're looking forward to. I love it when people have things to tell me, even if they don't think I'll be interested.
