My self-summary
I used to be on here for a while, but foolishly deleted my profile, so now I have to figure out a capsule summary of what I am like all over again. Lord, do I feel dumb.

How do you describe yourself in a way that's not just a laundry list of things you like and dislike, and personality traits you (and probably only you) think you have? I like cats and toilet paper and I have a tendancy to over-verbalize. See? What good is that?

I feel like I should add some more words (on the grounds that OKC tells me I should add some more words) but I am still not at all sure of what to say. I prefer jeans to shorts and have tan lines from my sandals, and one time I swam with stingrays in Grand Cayman. That was really fun.

I am Introverted, Extroverted, and Confused
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working for the Democrats for the summer, unless something goes very wrong, so that's fun. I just moved to Amherst, so at the moment I'm mostly trying to get settled. Other than that, I like to buy things and sell them for higher prices than those for which I bought them. I dunno, it's fun to me.

Oh, yeah, and movies, especially old ones, and video games, especially old ones, and books, especially nerdy ones. Those are things I do... sort of.
I’m really good at
Staying up late, being supportive, and deconstructing things
The first things people usually notice about me
This is incredibly hard to answer, seriously. I have a lot of traits I like to think are noteworthy, but I have no idea of what people think when first they see me. I'd actually really like to know...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Great Gatsby, Lolita, 1984, Orwell's non-fiction, Philip K Dick's books, Ursula LeGuin's books, probably a lot of other stuff it will later pain me to realize I've forgotten

Lawrence of Arabia, 2001, Alien, Stop Making Sense, all the Coen brothers movies, and an ungodly number of others

Leonard Cohen, Arcade Fire, Bob Dylan, Elliott Smith, Talking Heads, the Who, the Beatles (oh my god! how unique!) etc

I am terrible about food and will probably embarass you if you take me anywhere that doesn't serve steak and chicken fingers
Six things I could never do without
My cat, human contact...

I think I've done without most other things that aren't actually vital to being alive
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How the hell it is people manage to become grownups without hating their lives.
On a typical Friday night I am
My weekly schedule isn't predictable enough to answer this question meaningfully
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I own an Atari Jaguar. I once read most of the Fountainhead. I spent an entire semester sleeping in an air mattress with a hole in it.
You should message me if
This is probably the single dumbest prompt on here. Also, you know, friends only, so if you are desperately searching for a guy to sleep with, may I suggest the dozens and dozens of guys almost exactly like me.
The two of us
