My self-summary
Things I like:
reading, writing, cooking, rudimentary DIY projects (Bob Vila I ain't), saying ain't even though I'm quite apt with the English language, holding conversations that are inappropriate for my surroundings (churches, workspaces, children's birthday parties), dancing like a white boy, working out, irises, theatre, art in all its forms (except the ones I don't like), puns, leaving odd voicemail messages, unusual Halloween costumes, saying "your face" and "really, with that?"

I am honest, funny, and intelligent
What I’m doing with my life
I completed my Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing in May, and I just moved back to DFW from North Carolina. I'm waiting tables and tending bar while I send out my work and keep grinding on the writing.
I’m really good at
lots of stuff. Sports, not so much. (I still like to play; I'm just not very good)
The first things people usually notice about me
my eyes. Or the fact that I have fallen down. One or the other.

I also have the classical music station programmed into my car radio. And I listen to it.

The six things I could never do without
Do air, water, shelter, and food count?
my loved ones
sunglasses...I think I have a vampire's eyes. I'm that photosensitive.
a comfortable pair of sneakers
a garden of some kind
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All of the things. Seriously. Although, not all at once. My head would explode.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most Friday nights, I'm working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In a world increasingly void of privacy, I'm not entirely sure I'm willing to give up my secrets just because I'm asked to for an essay.
Hmm. I have a more-than-sneaking suspicion that no matter what I do or how I look, I will never quite fit in.
...and that may be just a *bit* too private.
You should message me if
Here is your decision tree:
Do you have a great sense of humor, are artistic or appreciative of the arts, and are you a decent human being?

Excellent! Final question before sending me a message: do you look down on those who choose to be in the service industry? (Corollary question: are you even a little bit flexible with your own personal schedule when you like someone?) If you've answered appropriately: send me a message. :-)
