My self-summary
Just realized exactly how long it had been since I had updated this thing...

Well, I moved to Denver a few years ago, with the intention of getting my MA and heading back to Missouri, but the damn city just kept refusing to give me a reason to leave. I love it here, and am pretty well locked in. I have two great jobs (one teaching, one as a barista), and a metric fuck-ton of amazing friends. Perhaps I'll write more here later, but for now, just know that things are good and such.
What I’m doing with my life
Getting my Masters, trying to figure out where to go for my Doctorate. I intend to be a professor/writer, so those are my two main focuses right now. I do have a couple of short stories published, so I'm not just some bum who claims to be a writer so he can have an excuse to hang around coffee bars all day (you know who you are...stop it). I write a little bit of everything and even have a graphic novel project in the works with an artist friend of mine.
I’m really good at
I'm a walking encyclopedia of useless information, a genetic trait passed down from generation to generation on my father's side. Films, music, books, pop-culture, yeah it's useless but fun.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea...probably the collection of strange hats.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
American Gods
World War Z
The Dark Tower Saga
Breakfast of Champions
Hitchhiker's Guide

Fight Club
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Anything by Terry Gilliam

The six things I could never do without
Car ((My car was eaten by the mountains a few months ago and I haven't missed it, so...legs, I guess)
Comfy bed
ummm...some sort of rudimentary shelter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever I happen to be writing at the moment. Once I get started on a project I spend a lot of time in my own head working out the details.
On a typical Friday night I am
Exploring, hanging w/ friends, writing or jacking around on x-box w/ friends from KC (my old home town).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I'm actually two gnomes in a trench-coat

Also, I really liked the finale of Lost
