My self-summary
Compared to other dudes my age, I might be:

===================== more likely to be reading 8 books at once

================= more willing to travel to Queens for Thai food

========================= more left of Democrat

=========== better at expressing complex emotions via eyebrows
What I’m doing with my life
PhD-ing it, in English.
Teaching the undergrads. (The children are our future.)
Union organizing.
Hanging around with an interesting cast of characters.
Being outdoors when possible.
Getting into heated discussions about politics.
And (as the infomercials used to say) much, much more.
I’m really good at
Directing confused tourists.
Holding myself in a state of cat-like readiness.
The first things people usually notice about me
My glasses, which I have been told make me look like some kind of architect.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recent enjoyments:
Ben Lerner, Leaving the Atocha Station
Janet Malcolm, Psychoanalysis: The Impossible Profession
Steely Dan, Pretzel Logic
Comedy Bang Bang
Chia seeds
Six things I could never do without
Exercise of some kind
Trees/Birds/Clouds (in that order)
The hope that I will someday have a dog
Unsurprisingly, books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be a better teacher.
On a typical Friday night I am
I've gotten most of the heavy partying out of my system, so my evenings are somewhat quieter and earlier these days--more of the movie/dinner party/coffee thing than the raucous bar thing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
At the age of 8, I peed in a camp counselor's shoes. I think I've matured admirably since then.
You should message me if
You like the books, but also the outdoors.
You've got a philosophical and/or impractical streak.
You're funny. (You know who you are!)
You're a committed lefty.
The two of us
