What I’m doing with my life
I manage a restaurant and when school is in session, work days as a substitute teacher. Puts down bills, debts and beer money.

I'll be happy to get back in a classroom. I love teaching and watching myself get better at it with every new bit of praxis that comes my way. I'm applying to go back to grad school to get my credential that lets me teach full-time, shooting for Spring 2018.
I’m really good at
keeping cool, bad at boiling down niche pop culture references.
The first things people usually notice about me
Cool vs excitable

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
DeBarge, Teena Marie, Courtney Barnett, Little Dragon, Ice Cube, MJ, Twin Sister, Doobie Brothers, Parquet Courts, anything off of Burger Records, Gorillaz, Queens of the Stone Age

Oh man so lately:
Black Mirror, The Walking Dead, old Simpsons [S02-S8] (always).
I wanna get back into Adventure Time, Steven Universe and Fargo

Need a new summer love book. Last summer it was Annie Proulx. Haven't read "Brokeback," but "Heart Songs" bangs, you guys. Food, sex, guns, the woods, music, cowardice, avarice, pride, prejudice, etc. So, that.

Annie Dillard could write the act of putting granola into yogurt so sensually you'll think she asked to kiss you on the forehead.
Nell Irvin Painter's History of White People has been drily funny and illuminating.

Also: Vonnegut, obvi, James Baldwin, HST, Tim O'Brien, EB White, Gabriel Garcia Marquez -- if you got a lot of hope for humanity and can write rl sexy, 👍

Spirited Away, Moonlight, Green Room, Arrival, Secretary, Fargo, Alien, Kurosawa stuff, I Love You, Man, Children of Men--anything that can leave me shaking and fill me with awe at the possibility of human experience and also at technical ability
Six things I could never do without
1) self cAre
2) beeR
3) my bikE
4) some dAmn vegetables
5) Like a keyboard or a notepad or a guitar or a video game controller
6) being able to teAch

message me if: you can decode the hidden self-description above.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Geography. Thinking about it and moving across it stitch together memories, feelings--this lights up big sweeps of my brain.
I think about how real, physical points of view write your emotional and political ones so often.
The way my clothes feel against my skin. The breeze.
My bank account, my budget plan.
On a typical Friday night I am
Helping my staff set up. My Fridays don't hit until Tuesday night.
You should message me if
u r a feminist QT
you're looking for super cool physical friendship without a future-building component to it
you think the American Left is due for a major overhaul and a major comeback
i'm trying to spend less time on this website, for my own health. if i send you my number, it's so i don't feel as compelled to check my inbox for that lil dopamine hit, u no? anyway, that's what that's all about :)
