My self-summary
I make maps! I'm so good at it that a law firm hired me to start a whole mapping department.

I've also done everything from interning on Capitol Hill in DC to research on the West Nile Virus to 3AM Taco Bell runs and Mario Party drinking games.

I've started collecting vinyl but don't have a record player.

***HEY LADIES basically I put in a total of 5 minutes per week of blankly scrolling through matches and wondering what peoples' lives are like, so if I miss something or you're interested in checking my soundcloud or discussing why I'm voting for the Pusheen ticket in 2016, ping me again!***
What I’m doing with my life
My degree is in Geography (go figure), but I'm always trying to figure out where to go and how to get there. I was getting into blowing glass before interesting and affordable classes didn't get moved into the workday, but I've been thinking about and studying it since then. Julia Child has been teaching me how to cook, and I can *almost* flip an omelet correctly.

I'm also in the business of finding quiet bars. I love riffing with good company over a drink, so if you have any ideas, send them in!
I’m really good at
-Remembering where conversations left off
-Graphic/interior design
-Making cocktails from whatever's in the nearest refrigerator
-Political discussion and gratuitous amounts of name-dropping
-Turning the sound off and talking for the people on TV
-Bad metaphors and analogies
-Laughing at them anyway
-Ending stories with '...and now we're here!'
-Gettin' all existential in gift shops
The first things people usually notice about me
My glasses are also pretty noticeable, except I only wear them, like, a third of the time. I also like rocking sunglasses, too, so maybe those?

Also I got some sweet electric neon blue kicks from the internet a few weeks ago and I am absolutely in love with them. They make me /feel/ cool; that's what really matters, right?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love cyberpunk fiction. Snow Crash is one of my favorite books of the last few years. Neil DeGrasse Tyson's "One Universe" got me hooked on science-y stuff in my youth. My subscription to The New Yorker lasts until 2017. I also enjoy long-form pieces on sites like NPR and the Post/NYT.

Movies: Star Wars is a must. The Matrix, The Minority Report, the Bourne Trilogy, or the occasional Bond are also fun. I also enjoy interesting documentaries, feel-good movies (The Artist, The Polar Express, Eternal Sunshine), or post-modern-fourth-wall-breakers (a la The Truman Show or The Adjustment Bureau). Let's pick really bad movies and smuggle liquor into the theater with us.

Shows: I'm making casual threats to cord-cut, but these are the usual gamut of the young twenty-something: Peaky Blinders, Rick and Morty, The Eric Andre Show, Arrested Development, The Regular Show, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Trailer Park Boys, Archer, Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy, The Wire, Cowboy Bebop, and I'm a huge fan of Game Grumps, a wildly inappropriate video game webshow thing.

Music: I'll let you know if we're in public and something from my library comes on. This will never happen though; I'm a curator, not a collector. 'Wait, let me rap along to this' means I trust you with my life and/or not to take a video.

Food: No olives, no shrimp, no honey-glazed ham, no soy sauce, no brains, livers, kidneys, eyeballs, or toenails. Salad is okay.
Six things I could never do without

-60% Gray
-Item #6
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Morality, meaning, how things work, and 'really, how old is 24 in the grand scheme of things?'

I do a lot of thinking about a lot of things. Ask me what I'm thinking about!
On a typical Friday night I am
-Pretending I like beer and running cost-benefits on cocktail specials
-Playing video games or learning about whatever jumps to mind, like how high-speed cameras work or how they make jell-o
-Falling asleep at like 3 or 4AM, preparing to decide between them again on Saturday night
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a too-small cheese grater with a red owl on it that I can't bring myself to replace because my aunt and uncle gave it to me for Christmas two years ago.

Also, I've had scarlet fever twice. Which is more mildly interesting than private but there's no 'random factoids about you' section.
You should message me if
-You think my question explanations are at all entertaining
-You have a favorite month and it's July
-You noticed the previous item could have been read two different ways
-You enjoy interesting cheeses
-You know how to beat NetHack
-You want to ask me stuff about things

[Hey also kids ain't my jam now or ever so if they aren't your jelly either, hit me up!]
