My self-summary
I'm Ezra: A sometimes aimless and goofy creature with thoughts I express in odd ways, a "writer," a citizen of my own little world, an only child, and a huge ball of cheese. (OKCupid says I'm less romantic than others but IT LIES.)

INFJ/INFP depending on the test. Also, Cancer stereotypes usually describe me pretty well...

I went to Tulane U. and lived in New Orleans for over 4 years. Moved back to Clemson (my hometown) December 2015. I am fully aware that I'm not the average Clemsonian but it's familiar here, the season of fall actually exists, and the rent is cheaper so I'm here at least until the end of 2016. Then probably onto Greenville or maybe another state?! (it's up in the air)

AND Yes I am a trans man i.e. my gender that I identify as is male. I still wear dresses and makeup and girly things sometimes because I like those things, and it doesn't change my gender.
What I’m doing with my life
As with many other millennials I've tried and failed to figure out what I could do with my degree. (English BA...oops?) I was super blessed to be able to go back to (online) school in a Court Reporting program. I'm looking to become a Live Closed Captioner for TV. (You can do more than just court reporting when you know how to type on a stenograph. They're pretty nifty.)

Being a freelance transcriptionist and video captioner currently.

I have a ton of travel goals. I definitely wanna go to Costa Rica and Iceland. I also wanna see more of the states. Like San Francisco, and Albuquerque, and Philadelphia, and Portland cause I'm hipster trash! Also Vancouver! And Toronto! SO MANY PLACES I WANNA GOO!
I’m really good at
"B.S.ing" written assignments and still doing well, thinking too hard, finding the subtext, stumbling into odd movies and songs, stumbling into physical objects, inventing weird band names, writing poetry, obsessing over movies, understanding where people are 'coming from,' staying up too long, sleeping too much, and making AMVs (MOST USELESS LIFE SKILL.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm awkward, appear to be high all the time (I rarely am) and give off "only child vibes" to some people?? Like I had a classmate predict that I was an only child when she did not know this about me, just based on how I interact with her and others.

I get a bit too excited when talking about things I like. People say I have pretty eyes.

The six things I could never do without
- people who understand the weird ways I express things / people to mutually enjoy presences with / people to watch movies and strange YouTube videos with
- A GPS (my phone) cause I never know where I am
- background music all the damn time
- the internet... sorry, i'm a sad human
- cute aMINALS
- movies ;.;
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Gender, pretty people, the general oddity of the way existence came to be and the other ways things could have happened and how strange it is that everything fell into place so perfectly to make things just how they are now, religious possibilities or the lack of them, are ghosts real?, is there an afterlife?, trying to write something good, movies, things I read, things I'm worried about, where I'll live eventually, lotsa shit.
On a typical Friday night I am
One of my favorite kinds of Friday nights is seeing a band I love with people I love, and then standing around by the tour bus like a groupie waiting to meet the band after the show.

But not EVERY Friday. Usually - give me food, a comfy blanket, a good movie, and a nice cuddly person to see it with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm Autistic which I am honestly cool with but the structure of society makes things harder for me and it may be a while before I can fully support myself.

I also have an anxiety disorder, and I struggle with phone calls for casual conversations.

So basically I'm not independent or sane :) ~Join the party~
You should message me if
YOU WANNA WALK AROUND THE SC BOTANICAL GARDENS OR FALLS PARK IN GREENVILLE WITH ME CUZ THEY'RE PRETTY AND I NEED TO GET OUT IN NATURE MORE

You look forward to weird movies and falling into YouTube holes. Being lazy is okay. In fact, it's enjoyable.
You want a concert/event/cafe buddy.
You enjoy being in the presence of a weird lil feminist nerd.

You live wherever the heck and you want an internet buddy to talk about ~deep shit~ with, and/or someone to visit you one of these days on a road trip.
