My self-summary
I'm a very lucky person. I do what I love. I have a close, loving relationship with my family. My friends are supportive and caring. My body always does what I ask without too much complaining. I have money in my pocket and food in the fridge. There's a lot of beauty in my life.

I try to remember all of that whenever the little things start to feel bigger than they have any right to be. Doesn't always work, but you can't win 'em all.

I laugh at people. Mostly when laughing isn't appropriate.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a graduate student. When I'm not in class or teaching, I'm usually studying. I like to spend my spare time making art. I run. I listen to music. I often get lost in the interwebs. I'm self-deprecating. I can be overly critical, but I'm also very trusting and extremely loyal. I spend every summer traveling. I love the ocean. I'm super funny...in my opinion.

I like thoughtful, intelligent men who are aware of their flaws and aren't seeking perfection. Self-awareness is very sexy. So is laughter. I need more laughter in my life.
I’m really good at
I keep coming back and changing my answer in this section. It's maddening! I'm kind of not liking OK Cupid right now for making me think about this...again.
The first things people usually notice about me
The confused look on my face.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
It's impossible to list a favorite in any of these categories. I'm always reading something. Being a student in my area of study requires an abundance of reading. I'm currently reading several French novels that you have probably never heard of and some texts on French colonization. I love magazines. I really miss news stands. I used to be able to walk for five minutes and spend hours flipping through magazines and now I have to get in my car and DRIVE for 30 minutes to get to a giant corporate bookstore that doesn't even have everything I wanna look at but it's all that's left so what choice do I have?! I'm surprised by how passionate I suddenly am about this.

Like many people these days I've become a Netflix binge watcher. I just finished all eight seasons of the new Doctor Who series (maybe that wasn't really a binge because it took almost a year to watch them all). I love just about anything in the science fiction genre. Star Trek is probably the show I have watched the most. I also like Looking (HBO series), Un Village Francais, the Daily Show, and some others that I can't remember at the moment. I usually have something on the computer while I'm painting or drawing.

My taste in music is rather varied, I suppose. I just downloaded two songs by Panic at the Disco, a new Marilyn Manson single, the Arctic Monkeys, Lorde, Bastille, and Flo-Rida. I like to listen to fast-paced dance music when I'm running (which I do often) but I listen to Baroque while studying. I guess I don't really "listen" to it, it's just on in the background while I'm focusing on other things. Occasionally I do stop and listen to something, though, when it catches my attention. I guess I just like music that suits my mood. Sometimes that means The Black Keys and sometimes that means Adele and sometimes it's Madonna. (Update: I just realized that I'm a total poser for even using the word "baroque" in my profile...what an asshole!)

I will typically eat just about anything. Although I'm kind of on a vegan kick right now. But I'm not sure why. I'm just not in the mood for animal, I guess.
The six things I could never do without
Never? How about the things I can't do without for now:
1. Passport
2. These new kick ass Adidas running shoes!
3. Montana Gold spray cans
4. Wordreference.com
5. Caran d'Ache pencils
6. Red wine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...which color to use.

Why are women always telling me what to do? (Maybe that's why I'm gay...well, in addition to my immense enjoyment of having sex with men...)

I spend a lot of time thinking about how tired of religion I have become.
On a typical Friday night I am
...at home painting and drinking wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Private? This is the Internet. I'm pretty sure we're not doing private these days.
You should message me if
...you know any good jokes.
