My self-summary
I live a pretty good life and have pretty good friends. I use my name as my user name because it reminds me that what I say online has just as much impact as what I say in the real world and because, as a man, I generally don't have to worry about my real name being used as a weapon against me by men. My pictures are four years out of date because I don't know how to take them down and because I hate having my picture taken and only allowed these to be taken because it was important to the last person I had a relationship with. I ended that sentence with a preposition because I think torturing syntax to conform to a prescriptivist grammar rule is silly.

I'm really just looking for someone to talk about "The Magicians" and "Supergirl" with me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in my second year at Willamette Law School. When I graduate, I hope to work in government or public interest law.
I’m really good at
Handling difficult situations (with myself and especially others, I'm often the consultant for others when things go bad), being a good friend, and paying attention while people vent.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm opinionated and well-spoken. Maybe that?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: American Gods, A Wheel of Time, A Song of Ice and Fire, The Dresden Files, The Kingkiller Chronicles, The Dark Tower, Harry Potter, The Lies of Locke Lamora, and I think The Lord of the Rings would go without saying. On the non-fiction side: 1776, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, The First American, Theodore Rex, American Lion, Team of Rivals, and several more on my to-do list.

Movies: I have a lot of movies. My top three that I can't put in order are: The Neverending Story, The Crow, The Transformers (1986). The Princess Bride deserves mention as almost making it the "top four that I can't put in order".

Shows: several. I like sitcoms, sci-fi/fantasy shows, and basically anything the CW makes.

Music: genrewise I am okay with anything except Jazz. Top four artists, in alphabetical order: Frank Sinatra, Metallica, Queen, Taylor Swift.

Food: I'm weird about food. Example I don't eat anything with tomato. I also don't eat peanut butter. I'm not allergic.
Six things I could never do without
I don't know.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm interested in politics. I think it's important. If I had my way I would work in that field. Beyond that I'm a nerd. Sci-fi, fantasy, philosophy and "philosophy."
On a typical Friday night I am
Finishing school work and relaxing. If anyone I know invites me out, I'll go. I don't mind staying in on my own though.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll tell anyone pretty much anything if they ask. I'm not really a private person. So just ask if you have a question.
You should message me if
...you want to?.... But really if I sound interesting, say something.
