My self-summary
I'm a wanderer at heart. Sometimes overly ambitious. Constantly in search of people who can teach me things. Chilled out but craving intensity. Politically left. Heteronormativity is gross.

Before last year I was an INTP; now I've become more judgmental, apparently.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a grad student in the humanities. I teach cinema classes and write media histories. You might see me reading on the bus or a dingy bar, or staring at a blank word document in a coffee shop.

Overcoming my cynicism. Finishing my dissertation.

Watching both pretentious and not pretentious movies
Perfecting whiskey drinks
Practicing bivalent breathing
The occasional show
Biking around the lakes cuz it's minneapolis in the summer
I’m really good at
being oblivious
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm probs not paying attention to what is going on in my immediate environment. (see above)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books I'm reading right now: Burroughs, Cities of the Red Night; Chang Rae Lee, The Gesture Life. I also like Maxine Hong Kingston, Arundhati Roy, Will Faulkner, and Henry James. And theorists. Lots of theorists.

I have a snobby taste in movies: Red Desert, La Chinoise, Breathless, 世界/The World, Stranger in Paradise, Vive L'amour, Bicycle Thief, Yellow Earth, Happy Together, Xala, 2 to 3 things I know about her. Getting ready to be disappointed by Independence Day 2 (the first one was my favorite thing ages 11-13, so it's obligatory).

Television: TWIN PEAKS!! I'm a very sporadic television viewer. Other shows I have been into at certain points in my life/am currently watching: Mr. Robot, Sense 8, The X-Files, Battlestar Galactica, Dollhouse.

My itunes collection stopped growing sometime in 2006, so here's what I got: modest mouse, 2pac, m.i.a., Nas, NoFX, blink 182, atmosphere, the roots, the fugees, lauryn hill, wilco, lupe fiasco, denizen kane, typical cats, beatles, ani difranco, amy winehouse, lady gaga, some others, I'm kind of out of the loop, but I do love music I swear.

Food: I'm riding the fancy ramen bandwagon at the moment. Other foods are acceptable too.
Six things I could never do without
French philosophy
Dreams (and their interpretation)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
watching a movie and/or writing, but most likely drinking
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I've been on pedal pub.
You should message me if
1. you've read this far
2. you think you're cooler than sliced bread
3. (this) normalcy bothers you
The two of us
