My self-summary
i still like folk songs and bossa nova.

i am still am discerning, secretly friendly, and hopeful.
What I’m doing with my life
well, i work a lot. i'm always trying to "grow as a person" (haha). mostly i try to make eye contact with people.

all i really want out of life is people to love and be loved by. ass-kicking, sharp-as-a-tack, circumstance-defying creativity-swingin' people. be that.

I’m really good at
themed mixes. taking the intuitive route. grammar. 10-key. reading prescriptions. critiquing things. cooking fuckloads of food after dumpster diving. talking about coffee. analyzing ad nauseum. remembering details you think i'm not paying attention to.
The first things people usually notice about me
i have a nose ring. PA-ZAM.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
raymond carver, renata adler, flannery o'connor, joan didion, michael ondaatje, marguerite duras' "the lover," richard brautigan, amy hempl, roland barthes' "a lover's discourse," "air guitar" by david hickey, luce irigaray, sometimes annie dillard, definitely "my body & i" by rene crevel, "the orange eats creeps" by grace krilanovich, anais' nin's journals, richard brautigan, tao lin (f the haters), vincent van gogh's letters to theo. i'm getting into trying out all of the books archipelago publishes.

movies. a woman under the influence (& most cassavettes), l'enfant, beaches, wristcutters: a love story (have you seen this? i cannot like it enough), le weekend, persona, le combat dans l'ile, notorious, little miss sunshine, 8 mile, gummo... random shit i've seen on netflix and highly liked/would recommend: unmade beds, c.r.a.z.y, mouth to mouth. and skins seasons 1 & 2 (not really a movie but the best guilty pleasure ever).

give me vietnamese sandwiches and i am in heaven. i like most things that involve lime, mint, cilantro, and/or coffee. i am a fake meat connoisseur. really. also, i like iced black tea mixed with black iced coffee. it tastes like swallowing the earth.
Six things I could never do without
libraries. coffee. good, whole wheat seedy bread. humor. serendipity. sad songs.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
the seductive battle between holistic health and holistic vice, lifestyles in general, apartments i'll rent that i haven't yet seen and lovers i haven't met yet.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
"i'm willing to be happy." that's what my profile said about three years ago. a MORE appropriate admission would be that i haven't really changed this profile in many years, although i'm slowly trying to.
You should message me if
you wanna chill on roof tops or go on roadtrips (or intercontinental journeys), you want to trade book recommendations, you speak a foreign language and will speak or teach it to me.
