My self-summary
I'm a curious person.

I'm constantly examining my own life, my actions, my conclusions, always in search of a better way. A better way to think. A better way to feel. A better way to show up in the world. A better way to find a better way...

This relentless search can be difficult at times, for I often find that there are few others like me who care so much about what is not immediately evident to most people. But there are others, I know that. I read their books. I watch their movies. I listen to their ideas. I watch. I learn. I know I'm not alone.

But it'd be nice if I had somebody to distract me!
What I’m doing with my life
I just quit my job as a cabinet maker in order to realign myself with something that feels more authentic to me as an individual.

I have a lot of ideas... I'm interested in writing. I want to write a children's book, and a script for a puppet show. I tried making a comic-book last summer. I'll try again.

I coach high school wrestling, and am currently in the middle of my 4th season of doing so. This is really the only consistent passion I've ever had. It is a huge commitment, but I'll probably never give it up.

I play guitar and jam with my drummer friend at least once a week. We're trying to combine black metal and jazz. We are cool idiots.
I’m really good at
Analogies, metaphors, solving people problems, making connections between different topics, climbing buildings. Normal stuff mostly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Bell Jar, Factotum, Harry Potter, The Old Man and the Sea, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, It, The Outsiders.

I also read a lot of random non-fiction.

My taste in music varies wildly, but anything that resonates with my emotional state at the time of consumption is going to be with me for a long time. Its crazy how certain songs really can bring back memories that were thought to be long forgotten.

I tend to like movies if I notice some sort of underlying meaning while watching the characters or the way the cinematography is done. I get excited about a movie whenever I notice a metaphor or some kind of technical device that I didn't know existed. Hence, I am a fan of watching movies more than once. I like to "see how they were done", not just see them.
Six things I could never do without
-new information
-old friends
-water (I drink a LOT of water)
-simplicity
-openness
-other people's perspectives
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What is it that I'm not seeing about the current situation?
Where have I seen a similar problem before?
How do I make solving a problem into playing a game?
Who do I know that could give me some good advice?
When am I going to be satisfied with the answers I already have?
On a typical Friday night I am
I enjoy keeping my options open until the last minute.

Call it planned spontaneity, call it what you will.
You should message me if
You're a witchy woman.
