My self-summary
If I decide something is fascinating, I dedicate an inordinate amount of time and energy to it (ask my friends about when I read 5 books straight on scientology and wouldn't shut up about it. The more you read the weirder it gets!).

I read a lot, love books (paper ones.. That smell!), both fiction and non fiction, and the best thing anyone's done for me recently is remind me that libraries exist, which has relieved considerable strain from my amazon account.

I am perpetually looking to learn and discover new things, I've been to somewhere between 30 and 40 countries and constantly planning for more (I'll bring you along if you fit in that little metal crate they have to check bag sizes)..

and yet there are few things i love more than watching absurd amounts of mindless tv at home :) really... like unbelievable amounts. like, find me a new show on netflix and it'll be done within a week amounts.

What I’m doing with my life
Working in the medical field. Always loved doing international medical work and have gone on 6 trips. Had less time for this recently but hope to do it again in the future.

Read a lot, write a lot. I'd really like some new creative outlets.. Anyone interested to try glass blowing or a photography class?

I go abroad every chance I get. Got back from the Galapagos in March. As I said, I can totally smuggle you onto the plane. I'm thinking east europe next.
I’m really good at
Making detailed excel spreadsheets of simple everyday things for which most people have zero need for an excel spread sheet.

Shirt/tie matching! even those tough checkered, striped patterns!

rock climbing

Creative problem solving- seriously if you're a nerd and are into this we need to talk bc there is an awesome monthly event called the puzzled pint that I can't convince any of my friends to join me for. Not to come off as super desperate for a puzzle partner or anything.

bad at:
assembling IKEA furniture
stifling laughter
remembering to balance my checkbook
The first things people usually notice about me
i'm going to be the one making jokes in the middle of the room.
i'm tall

apparently i have long eyelashes...think like drew barrymore in the commercial long. If I had a nickel for every time a girl said "ooo I wish I had your eyelashes," I'd have a sizable pile of nickels.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books- Nabokov, Vonnegut, Gladwell. Updike and his horribly flawed characters but incredibly beautiful prose. I read about a book a week. I was a creative writing major, but I seem to read as much nonfiction as fiction right meow.

Movies- Mostly comedy, though anything mindfucky is great (machinist, memento, shutter Island, usual suspects.. If I gasp at a twist, that's a good sign). also-- Wes Andersen. I thought I was easily scared by horror movies, but I realized I just hadn't watched one since seeing the Ring in theaters when I was 14.

Shows- seinfeld, bobs burgers. Broad city. Archer. Arrested Development. Just binged the new house of cards and big little lies and glow (storyline, eh, but Marc maron and Alison brie + 80s aesthetics and soundtrack = great) And so on so on. i waste a lot of time here. I don't understand why people like the big bang theory (the show. I get the actual theory...)

Music- current strfkr and El ten eleven kick. Try "open your eyes" by strfkr (and yes that's pronounced starfucker) or "my only swerving" by El ten eleven and let them take you away. Really fantastic. Also a lot of indie rock. But, virtually everything, really.

Food- Anything! Really love Thai food and live near noodlehead which is an awesome problem. If you haven't been, we should go.
i just ate a rabbit like a week ago. that may not seem cool to you. but i had a pet rabbit once, and that just changes the whole experience. I've had chicken liver too, but i never had a pet chicken, so it wasn't as weird. though it was gross.
and i honestly can't eat tofu. that's not even food..
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop.

What the world would be like if everyone would just chill the fuck out.

If I should attempt stand up comedy again.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i never saw the 6th sense bc people ruined it and then i figured it wasn't worth my time. that's not a secret, but i needed to vent bc it still really bums me out.
You should message me if
You have a childlike sense of wonder and you want to do puzzles and/or go glass blowing.

or

if you want to test out the best (worst) pick up line you can imagine.
