My self-summary
Figured it was time for my biannual update.

My name is Jonathan or Jon (no preference). After spending pretty much my entire life in Philly, I moved to NYC in 2014 for a job. Lived in Brooklyn for two years and just recently moved to Hell's Kitchen; enjoying being able to walk to work. I'm a go-with-the flow kind of guy. I like being outdoors, which is hard when you live in the city without a car, but I try and make do (read: I'm failing). I love traveling and exploring, and am always looking for new suggestions of places to visit. I'm a huge extrovert and really enjoy meeting new people. I'm also really sarcastic and make inappropriate comments so you've been warned.
What I’m doing with my life
I do study abroad recruitment for a university, which entails traveling around the country visiting different schools. I love traveling so it's a great way to see the country on someone else's dime.

Aside from work, I'm enjoying NYC but I've been here for over two years and still feel like I have no idea what's going on so definitely trying to explore more. Currently seeking ideas/suggestions/guides.
I’m really good at
Well I can tell you that I'm definitely not really good at writing a dating profile, that's for damn sure.
The first things people usually notice about me
A lot of people tell me that I look like I'm 12. Not sure if that's a compliment or insult.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I've been reading a lot more since moving to NYC. Maybe it was all the subway rides. Maybe it's all the time I spend traveling for work. Who knows. I do know that I've spent over $100 at Strand Bookstore before. I may or may not have been a little drunk from happy hour.

Movies: For better or worse (mostly worse), I enjoy most movies. Unless it's horror because then I'll scream and cover my eyes like a small child, which is super embarrassing. It's probably for the best if we just avoid that all together.

TV: I watch a lot of crappy shows, which will require at least several drinks in me before I start admitting them.

Music: My dad took me to my first concert. It was Pink Floyd. I was 6. Since then I've seen an eclectic mix of shows and listen to a wide range of music. I like being introduced to new music and am pretty open-minded.

Food: I will eat almost anything. Except avacados. I don't understand how I'm the only one who isn't a fan, but you're welcome to try and convince me otherwise. This also includes guac, which I'm sure is a make-or-break for some people. Sorry.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
My contacts (think I'm legally blind without them)
DVR
Travel
Humor/sarcasm
Family/friends
Booze

And because six is a random number, I'm adding a seventh: my iPhone. But that's because I like listening to music when I walk. And I walk a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I should travel next, next year's Halloween costume (but then forgetting about it and hastily throwing something together half-ass the day of), what an awesome safe house my Philly apartment would have been during a zombie apocalypse
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends having a chill night or out with friends having a crazy night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tie my shoes using the "bunny ears" method. Yup, exactly like a kindergardener.

I also own WAY too many socks and underwear. Seriously, it's a bit ridiculous.
You should message me if
You can get through a game of Cards Against Humanity without being offended.
