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 am very honest and open about my thoughts and feelings and I like the people in my life to be as well (I am as of now unable to read minds). This DOES NOT MEAN RUDE OR CRUEL! People love to disguise meanness as "honesty". 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. 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.
I also edit and produce a small arts and literature zine that I would love to make my entire life someday.

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
Currently making my way through Murakami's entire collection.

Overall favorites? Pynchon, O'Connor, Chabon, Lovecraft, Boll, etc etc.

I like poetry too.

Podcasts galore: the maximum fun network, radiolab, the truth, etc.

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

Aaaaand now I'm bored with this question.
The six things I could never do without
Sadly, my cell phone. NPR and its affiliated podcasts. My pets. The occasional Indian meal. Notebooks/pens. If I had to I could live without my scooter but it would not be pleasant.
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. But please be a kind and tolerant person.

If you want someone to write you a silly song or knit you a scarf.

You produce art of any kind and would like to contribute to a fledging young journal.
