My self-summary
Anytime someone asks me to describe myself it feels like a job interview no matter the context. This is the part where I talk about rock climbing and traveling the world except I don't do those things - though I wouldn't mind trying. INFJ if that means anything to you.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a BA in English and an MA in Teaching, and am currently teaching in a Middle School after school program.
I’m really good at
Writing, cooking, Cards Against Humanity, Mario Kart 64, Beer Pong, and probably other things. I'm a decent bass player and also adequate at singing and acoustic guitar.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. I'm a ginger if it's been sunny out lately. I either over-share or don't at all. People like my eyes; they're some kind of green. I'm sarcastic and self-deprecating. I laugh at my own jokes. I get way meta about everything.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Top 5 lists and go:

Books: Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut, The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, and The Turnaround by George Pelecanos. Special nonfiction mention goes to my bible, Pedagogy of the Oppressed, by Paulo Freire.

Movies: Princess Mononoke, Doctor Strangelove, the Star Wars trilogy, Seven, and Orange County.

Shows: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Fullmetal Alchemist, Criminal Minds, Lost, Doctor Who.

Music: Strike Anywhere, Streetlight Manifesto, Flogging Molly, Neutral Milk Hotel, Defiance Ohio.

Food: I just really like food.
The six things I could never do without
A full eight hours of sleep. Caffeine. Quiet "introvert recovery" time. Food. Shelter. Validation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Language, capitalism, critical pedagogy, whether or not I care if a tree falls in the forest to begin with, poststructuralism, misogyny, racism, queer stuff, and how all of those things fit together.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either spending time with close friends, out at a bar making superficial friendships with strangers, or spending a night in binge-watching Netflix with my cat.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I kind of like the way my hands smell.
