When I have expendable income, I spend a disproportionate amount on expensive food and entertainment, which sometimes puzzles my more practical roommates. I get bored easily, and I need constant stimulation, or I'll start to get restless. At certain points of my life, that aspect of my personality has caused me a lot of trouble, but I take the good with the bad and have a lot of stories to show for it.
I've written a novella and a full-length poetry collection, and I'm working on my first full-length novel. It's a comedy about a talking dog and its owner and their adventures in capitalist suburbia, sort of a tongue in cheek celebration of advertising culture and consumerism.
You probably could not describe me as "chill" and I think that's a good thing. I'm serious and eccentric and adventurous and intense. My lifestyle may often seem fairly laid-back on the outside, but I'm always planning and I'm rarely relaxed.
I like to cook. If you're adventurous, ask me to make you paella. It would make my day.
I am more punk than I look.
Film tastes are all over the place from mumblecore to over-the-top kung fu flicks. I was a film school nerd. As for TV, Trek is always a winner. Louie, Broad City, Game of Thrones. Passion for cartoons. I could honestly watch El Chapulin Colorado all day long (but only with the subtitles off.) Weird humor and interesting characters are the two most important check boxes for me.
Music tastes change too often, but right now, I think my favorite band is Yo La Tengo. Minutemen. Sonic Youth. I prefer complicated to simple, generally. I recently got a premium subscription to Google Play Music, so I've been bouncing around between a lot of out-there stations.
If we're going to be honest here, my least favorite food is probably asparagus, and my favorite food is probably cheap whiskey.
