My self-summary
Obligatory statement about hating self description. Now that that's out of the way....sometimes sarcastic. Occasionally didactic, though I struggle to avoid it. I don't know everything and won't pretend I do. I have an emotional relationship with the world around me and I'm eternally trying to improve myself.

I try to be accepting, tolerant, and forgiving as much as possible. And apparently I use oxford commas...

Learning is fun, maybe necessary. Empathy is unavoidable. I'm an introvert but I love people.

I do not appreciate nor will I adhere to gender roles and stereotypes.

Apparently everybody on this site is either "laid back" or "easy going". That can't be true. There can't possibly be that many relaxed people in the world. Nothing would get done. That being said, I'm a pretty agreeable guy.

What I’m doing with my life
Spending hours upon hours in a cube. Yes, cube. They're no longer referred to as cubicles. It's an HR thing. UPDATE: new open office layout. Google does it so it must be good right??? So far the only benefit is unintended eye contact with coworkers.

Trying to write something I can read without cringing. In a perfect world I'd be making a living from my fiction. In the meantime I'm experiencing things.

And......Endlessly goofing off. Procrastinating. Sleeping when my cats allow it. Droppin some serious eaves everywhere I go.
I’m really good at
Empathy, for better or worse. Reading people...and books. Scootering. Sleeping. Obsessing over tasks until their completion and then not caring about the result and moving on to the next project. Making scented candles. Chopping wood. Im really good at being bad at the guitar. I can sometimes be good with words. What I'm best at though is the ability to multitask while daydreaming.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmm....not sure as people rarely comment on my physical traits but I'd have to say probably my hair or glasses
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Murakami, Keret, Pynchon, O'Connor, Chabon, Boll, etc etc.

I like poetry too.

Podcasts galore: the maximum fun network (the McElroy family of products in particular), radiolab, the truth, etc.

Food: anything vegetarian, preferably vegan. Literally anything.

A small amount of netflix; I don't religiously follow any series'.

Aaaaand now I'm bored with this question.
Six things I could never do without
Cats. More specifically my cats. The occasional Indian meal. Books. Podcasts. Headphones (that's going to count as two cause I can't think of anything else)...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Broad youth cultural trends and their root causes. Philosophy and its pretensions. The future. The past (though I wish I didn't). Travel. I fantasize about moving away a lot. I daydream quite a bit.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies. Sometimes I'm out. Sometimes I'm home, playing board games or watching movies. Usually laughing about something stupid. Sometimes making up possible sequels to classic novels or hanging out with cats.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm scared of roller coasters...

And I have no idea what pinterest is.
You should message me if
You exist, I'm always interested in meeting new people.

You should also believe that feminism is important. And that black lives matter. And be a staunch ally of LGBTQ+ communities. And pro choice too would be good.....Okay maybe not EVERYONE that exists....

If you want someone to write you a silly song or knit you a scarf.
The two of us
