My self-summary
My name is Joe and this is where I am in my life today:

Currently I'm in transition. After sacrificing two years of my life to graduate school in Connecticut I've moved to Virginia to pursue a career as an adolescent therapist. It's been a difficult yet necessary journey.

I value things like honesty, deep conversations, books, coffee, love, acceptance, individuality and humor. All these things genuinely make me feel good. I'm pretty successful at letting the trivial (and even not so trivial) things go because I value my peace of mind and serenity more than anything. I believe that treating myself well is the foundation to treating others well. No one wants to be around someone who is being negative or miserable including myself when I start to act that way. Lastly, I'm at my best when my attitude can see the world through a glass that is half full. My drink of choice is gratitude. Optimism is my way out.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently in transition. I just moved back to Virginia from Connecticut for a career as an adolescent therapist. I want to go back to school when and if it is in the cards for me.
I’m really good at
Keeping my mouth shut and my ears open. It helps me remember a lot of the things people say and the details of conversations I've had. I also pay attention to small details wherever I go.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea because I've never had a reason to ask. However, I think I have a nice beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Put one in front of me and I'll read it. My favorite is Malcolm X's autobiography followed by Choke by Chuck. I binged on Irvin Yalom and finished Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead. A couple of my friends started me on the Game of Thrones series so that's what I'm into now.

Shows: South Park , The Daily Show, Colbert Report, MSNBC Lockup, and The First 48. Humor and criminals.

Movies: I'm not a huge movie fan and won't go out of my way to see one. They interest me, but not enough for me to put in any effort.

Music: I love most music and prefer 90's alternative. Being from the north I don't listen to country. Sorry. If you listen to country the length of time I listen to it is related to how much I like you.

Food: I spent the last year being a pescetarian for sociopolitical reasons. It was a good experience but I like meat. Carbs are always delicious. Give me some pasta and some bread.
Six things I could never do without
Family, Friends, Clients, Music, Spirituality (intentionally not religion) and Books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can't wait to wear jeans and hoodies come the fall.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't drink so you won't find me at the bar. It was never really my scene anyway. After sacrificing my last two years in graduate school I spend a lot of time with my friends. I've neglected them after all so I'm in the process of catching up on two years of random crazy adventures.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had a tongue ring and I guaged it so at one point I could put a straw through the hole. Who knows why I thought that was a good idea but I did. The end result: it destroyed part of my mouth and required surgery to fix it.

The cat in my picture isn't mine. That's Penny, my friends cat. My cat is Jackson, he's a Russian Blue, and he talks a lot.
You should message me if
If you think there's some way we could mutually benefit from each other....or you want to.
The two of us
