My self-summary
I am a human being. I'm constantly redefining what that means. What "I" means.

There are things that I choose, (or don't), the people that I surround myself with and the things I love.

I desire self improvement, and care. I love to think, and experience. I have done a lot in my life, and have many stories. I live and I learn and I live, each time savoring the experience.

I am not one for excuses, though I make them. I live and hope to keep living for a long time, if not indefinitely! Though I accept that some things are not possible for me, I try to maintain that they may be possible for someone or something. This keeps me alive with an incredibly open spirit and curious vigor.

I love to love and be loved. I love to give and I create value wherever I can, for myself and others. Sometimes my thoughts come across as dry or even emotionless, but I am a very emotional being. Someone I care deeply for said to me once that I have "A romantic nature tempered by practical self interest" I find this to be my ideal. For I do, as well as think, and in my doing, become the Man I hope to be.

Thank you for taking the time to read and consider "ME.

What I’m doing with my life
Im a Cellist! What a dream. I play music, and I furnish my skill on a very old and beautiful instrument. I think and read, and generally try to become a better human being. I meet all kinds of interesting people here and around the world, and I love learning from them as well as teaching everything I have learned.
I’m really good at
Cello, Thinking, Caring, Finding Solutions, Creating, Cooking, Pulling things out of thin air..
The first things people usually notice about me
Energy, Eyelashes, .. haha how else can I answer from "your" perspective.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love the great gatsby. It may be my favorite book. And every time I read it as I grow it means more to me. A few other favorites are more wordy philosophy. I love Kant, Kierkegaard's fear and trembling. I like fight club. Game of thrones. And too many more to list. But those are what popped in as I was writing. REVISION: I love books that make me think and challenge me. I loved Daniel Khaneman for writing "Thinking, Fast and Slow" a book that truly opened my eyes to so many of my hidden biases and perceptions. It was the beginning of a flurry of good intention to become a better person and to constantly admit not only the possibility of my wrongness but my own ability to correct. I read current events, and science, sometimes economics and staples of great human wisdom like "The Art of War", or Various arguments by the greek philosophers. I do a fair amount of online reading as well. I've always been fascinated by the nature of the physical universe as well as the nature of intelligence and consciousness. I love pondering possibility and progress, and the next step, though I savor many volumes of literature that enrich my present as well. The knowledge I absorb from these readings keeps me grounded and happy. It is the gateway to a better life and a better world. I share them all with anyone that comes to my home. (my bookcase, and lending library)

Music as I'm sure you've realized, plays a huge role in my life. I love music for its effect on the soul and the mind, so whatever does the job is on my list. A couple of deeply personal and beloved selections would be any of the second movements from Beethoven between 4 through 7. I love Mahler's 5 symphony, and Mozart's 9,20,21 piano concertos, there is Rachmaninoff and Saint Saens, (Duke Ellington and so many other great Jazz contemporaries. I love new music as well. Tame Impala, Floom, Kendrick Lamar (many solid old school rappers that share the style) I used to listen to the Beatles and Led Zepplin on a constant basis but now they are sort of on the shelf. Again, asking might get you a better picture.

Some movies steal the soul. I love Humphrey bogart. Clark gable. And the style and setting they played. On a more modern note. The batman movies. Some Tarantino. And Miyazaki. Of course, "Last Tango in Paris"

I have taken to watching TV while I practice scales, so I watch a lot sometimes. South Park is a must, Always Sunny in Phili, Band of Brothers, curb your enthusiasm, to name a few.
Six things I could never do without
If I survived an apocalypse, Id hope I could at least keep

(My) Mind
The ability to revise this list
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life. The Universe, Everything.

Why people do what they do. Why I do what they do.

I hear music. Maybe that is a thought.

I think about many little things. Little ways the world works. And they add up. Sometimes to large understandings.

Perhaps I think about timing too much.

I think about if "too much" exists. I know too much air will kill you. Watch out for that air
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm fortunate enough to live every day with a lot of freedom. I usually get my grind work done during the day and relax or do something at night. There are plenty of days that are the opposite. So to answer the exact question, "Friday" is sometimes my "Monday". On that night, or nights of leisure I can be quiet and watch a movie, be creative and play music or have discussions with my friends about the subjects we love or find too important to ignore. I spend a good amount of time alone, contemplating, absorbing knowledge or playing my cello, walking, sometimes there are weeks at a time where I wont do much else. There are plenty of extremely social weeks also, where I'll go out to eat or dance with people, or throw a great party at my apartment. I think as a rule its hard to come up with all the answers to anything, especially on the spot, so I'll leave off that I'm extremely open and adventurous, and its not likely that I'll turn something down, unless I'm up all night.. Though that sometimes happens too.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Though I regularly get past it, I am deeply insecure about how people perceive me, my music and my life.
You should message me if
If you want to grow, and help others to as well. If you want a genuine and caring person in your life in any capacity. You feel like you are sleeping, but aren't quite sure which side of the dream you're on..
