My self-summary
*** Looking for FRIENDS only. Disregard all other inclinations implied herein ***

Literally all I want are more friends to have coffee and conversations with. Please message if you want to do that.
What I’m doing with my life
Former teacher, heading up the education wing of a nonprofit.

Other things:
Fidgeting.
Writing.
Creating.
Loafing.
Having a goddamn conversation with you.
I’m really good at
-Thinking my roommate isn't home and earnestly singing embarrassing medleys.

-Opening windows.

-Understanding what you're getting at.

-Saying nice things and meaning them.

-Saying things that I want you to remember, then later realizing I only said them inside my head so you never even heard them (!).

Let's play Bananagrams!
The first things people usually notice about me
Subway weirdos can't get enough of these eyelashes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Just Kids, e e cummings, S.J. Perelman, Alice Munro, Donna Tartt, Nikolai Gogol, Milan Kundera, Franz Kafka, Woody Allen (films, short stories, and plays), Philip Roth, Catch 22, Robinson Crusoe, Bob Dylan, The National, The Tallest Man on Earth, 60's r&b, 50's syrupy pop music, Cole Porter, vegetables and noodles.

Classical music does it for me, especially in the morning. Don't worry, I like FIDLAR, too.

I read ALL THE TIME. I like the kind of stories with people talking to each other, then in the end they realize they've said too much. Invite me to your book club!
The six things I could never do without
Henry Winkler guest spots.

Someday I'll get to the point where I can read an entire book and not think "Clearly, a cookie would be delicious right now," between every sentence.

Likewise, I doubt I'd excel at one of those programs where you become a millionaire by simply not buying coffee every day. Couldn't do it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to express the inexpressible.
Relationships.
Gender and sexuality.
How to be a better ally in the many struggles for social justice.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wishing I still had a car so I could drive somewhere to see the stars.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Twitter: @markedly
You should message me if
If you want to be friends, hang out, have coffee, go to movies, text back and forth -- but nothing romantic, please.

I don't come here very often, so you need to send the first message!
