My self-summary
I suck at this shit. But the general gist is a hopelessly romantic, extraordinarily nerdy polymath who is excessively ambitious, and unrealistic.

Who ever got anything done with realistic expectations though?

Probably also important: I actively identify as a feminist, it matters to me, and it matters that you know that. I'm also Hindu, but practice radical acceptance, so whatever you are is cool with me. I'm told i'm sweet, so that's good. But I leave you to determine that for yourself.
What I’m doing with my life
I work full time; review music part time; write fiction and doing all the leg work required to become an author/musician/librettist/filmmaker aside from that. I'm also teaching myself 10 languages with wikipedia for the funsies.
I’m really good at
Everything, mostly.

And sarcasm
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books (tip of the iceberg): The big ones: Dante Alighieri, Jorge Luis Borges, James Joyce, Marcel Proust.
Finnegans wake makes me unreasonably happy
Fantasy: Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, Philip K. Dick, George R.R. Martin, Steven Erikson & Ian cameron Esslemont
Epic Poetry: The Mahabharat, the Ramayana, The Iliad + Odyssey, The Epic of Gilgamesh
Short Fiction: Clarice Lispector (all the sighing); Ficciones; South American infinity is awesome
Modernism and Its Ilk: Thomas Pynchon, respect for DFW, if not outright adoration. Gene Wolfe, even though he's fantasy, because he writes some heavy stuff

Music: I'm going to say talk to me, I review music for a living (rawckus.com, Eric K, shameless plug, don't care) and pinpointing this is difficult. If you like music we'll have stuff to talk about

Movies: Andrei Tarkovsky, Ingmar Bergman and the artsy-fartsy filmmakers of the past are really important to me. That said, I love generic romantic-comedies, exceedingly bad movies, and whatever I'm currently obsessing over.

TV: The Wire, The Shield, Justified, Hannibal, GoT, Breaking Bad, Mad Men (Ish), Friends, Frasier, et al.

Musical Theatre: Hamilton, Passing Strange, Rent, Sunday in the Park With George, Avenue Q, the Book of Mormon, FALSETTOS (sweet baby jesus).

I'm kind of a functional eater, but I like Sushi and Indian food, so yay?
The six things I could never do without
My heart,
my medulla oblongata,
my hypothalamus,
my carotid artery,
my femoral artery,
my overly abundant sense of irony,
my ability to count accurately
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Writing

The most underrated punctuation mark; the Semi-Colon; and my continuing daily love-affair with it.

How I should have used a colon in the above sentence

Musicals, art, life, the universe, everything

The nature of consciousness, existence; and how not to sound like a total knob when saying that.

Languages
On a typical Friday night I am
like descartes when he isn't thinking

(nothing)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You could ask, you know
You should message me if
If you want to; why else?
