My self-summary
Socially adept nerd. Just as comfortable in a crowded bar as I am in a board game cafe. I love reading, mostly fiction these days but occasionally I pick up something historical or other nonfiction. I enjoy cooking and am always up for trying out new restaurants or cooking with something I've never tried before. Music is also a huge part of my life, I played a couple of instruments in high school and college but mostly I just enjoy listening now.
What I’m doing with my life
Helping college students get their shit together. Being glad that (for the time being) I'm done with grad school. Trying to be more socially just.
I’m really good at
Word games, naps, long drives, serenading my steering wheel during long drives, trying new foods, putting together things with/without directions, giving out tidbits of useless trivia and information
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Other People's Children, The Name of the Wind, Alma Mater, Biggest Elvis, Way of Kings, American Gods, Angels in America (technically a play, but whatever), Final del Juego, Poe's short stories, Tyranny of the Market

I am a huge fan of all kinds of food, particularly Turkish, Japanese, and Thai. If you know a great Vietnamese place in Columbus, please let me know! Also I'm really into beer, so I'm always happy if I have a good craft beer to go with a meal (or just by itself).
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
Music, Food, My good friends, My brother and dad, My journal
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I am going to do with the rest of my life...or at least where I'm going to be in the next few years.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depending on how the week went, either out at a bar or party with friends or in my apartment relaxing and gearing up for Saturday night!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Does this seem counterintuitive to anyone else?
