My self-summary
Frenchman lost in translation

So yeah, I am a real French person (I apologize for that in advance). I guess I embody a certain idea of Frenchness in spite of my endless efforts at emancipation, which implies quitting self-deprecation, refraining from yelling at strangers, and feeling urged to get some work done when I sit in a coffee shop (instead of spending afternoons sipping espressos outside not doing shit).
This is my second year in New York (but not my first time), and I could do anything to stay here for the rest of my life. Trust me, Paris is overrated. Sadly I'm not going to be around forever, and I really want to enjoy the few months I still have . I can just hang out in Brooklyn all summer, go to the beach, to outdoors shows and movies, watch the sunset in Red Hook and be the happiest guy. Oh wait, I need someone to come with me.
What I’m doing with my life
working on a PhD in contemporary American fiction and visiting at Columbia.

I like style, good coffee, soccer (excessively), retro and vintage stuff (although I find it obnoxious), critical theory, irreverence, going to brunch, doing things my way, getting tanned, living the American life.
I’m really good at
Being sarcastic
Getting drunk easily and saying too much
Analyzing a soccer game
Analyzing a movie
Analyzing what is wrong with me
