My self-summary
[Insert rambling personal statement attempting to achieve the perfect balance between humility and intrigue while professing to hate and be just absolutely terrible at writing same]
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to improve every day, to not sleepwalk through life and to not be simply a cog in the machine.
I’m really good at
One-on-one conversation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some favorites are:
Books: The Phantom Tollbooth, historical biographies, classics of western literature (currently working my way forward from the Greeks and Romans), Icelandic sagas, Henry James, one hundred years of solitude

Music: alternative, rock, classical, jazz and some opera. Bowie, Roxy, Radiohead, Ella, Thelonious, Bach, Mozart, Glass, Adams

Film: Citizen Kane, Spirited Away, Edward Scissorhands, My Dinner with Andre, Gone with the Wind
Six things I could never do without
(in random order)
intellectual stimulation
the arts
(Pretty hard to keep this list to six isn't it?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to fit in all the things I want to do. My grandfather worked, drove and had a girlfriend until the month before he died at 94. He was a huge influence on me.

Trying to answer the following questions: if the universe is endless, to where does it go? But if it ends, what is it contained in?

And trying to live by my favorite quote: Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. (Plato)
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating dinner with friends and/or attending something artistic/cultural
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I always order the black iphone, but I secretly lust after the white version.
You should message me if
You demand honesty, respect, kindness, empathy, loyalty, someone with a good work ethic, generosity, sensitivity, selflessness and a partner who demands those things back.

And if you're a little nerdy at times you get extra credit.
The two of us
