My self-summary
If I see one more profile that includes something as inane and empty as 'fun-loving' I will...probably press back on the internet browser. HEAD SHAKINGLY

Anyway, hmmmmm, self-summary, right... I'm sarcastic, generally pretty reserved but I can oscillate between really shy and charismatic pending my level of interest and comfort (and level of caffeine, sleep, etc). I write (starting up some fiction right now, though I competed at the national poetry slam last year), I like to help people during shitty times in their life (I was a volunteer firefighter/EMT for a couple years), I like exploring places I shouldn't NECESSARILY be (ie: trespassing).

Also, I...love...fun? Damnit.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to turn my writing into something people are willing to pay me for.

Going to school to become a doctor working in disaster areas

And learning to hold my head up during high tide and rolling with the punch lines. (and trying to rhyme, apparent...lime)
I’m really good at
brevity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Everything is Illuminated, The Fountainhead, Flow My Tears the Policeman Said, The Great Gatsby, House of Leaves, The Road, Dune, Neuromancer, Fight Club, American Psycho, etc etc etc... Animorphs (alright, maybe that one's a little old)

Musica: Interpol, mc chris, Sage Francis, The Glitch Mob, The Crystal Method, Deltron, Eyedea, Tenacious D, The Mars Volta, Snow Patrol, Florence + The Machine, Atmosphere, Band of Horses, Blue Scholars, Lana Del Rey, Sublime, Bad Religion, Mindless Self Indulgence (yeah, I said it), DethKlok, etc etc etc

I don't watch the TVs, except occasionally online.

Also, Thai food. Yup.
The six things I could never do without
Fingers. I mean I've got the standard 10, but if I can only keep 6 of them, I'll take what I can get.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Story ideas. Places around town I'd like to explore. The ways in which human nature is being forcefully transformed by technological advances aaaaaand when AI will finally become smart enough that I can talk to it. Like for real, SIRI doesn't count until it starts confiding in me its existential misgivings.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working :(

Or at home writing, homeworking, or just bored as all get out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
On an internet profile? Well, I'm in a witness protection program after witnessing the brutal assassination of my parents by the Mexican drug cartels.

Also, I'm totally willing to lie for the sake of sarcasm.
You should message me if
- you are sarcastic, intelligent, and have an absurd sense of humor
- you have good taste in anything (preferably everything)
- you like going on ridiculous adventures
