My self-summary
I've got a heart full of soul, a head full of doubt/road full of promise, and an apartment full of secondhand books.
What I’m doing with my life
Living the questions, the way Rainer told us to do.

Also: reading books, writing a book, painting things (canvases, walls, the town), playing soccer a couple times a week, biking, running, hiking, skiing, going out for some live music, carousing, gallivanting, using words like "gallivanting" on the regular, wondering how my place gets so messy with just one person living in it, analyzing, conversing, musing and daydreaming.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at a lot of random physical, athletic and intellectual activities. Maybe you want to talk Kieslowski or Christa Wolf or Adam Phillips, or talk about - better yet, go see live - some good music? Or you want to run a half-marathon, do a century bike ride or hike across Vermont? Hell, let's try a couple of those at the same time - I'm game if you are.
I'm merely quite good at various others, such as pretending to understand Lacan and my standing bow pose, but I'm working on those.

If I'm on this thing, as I am just once in a blue moon, I'm likely to be slightly beered up and singing along to favorite songs on Youtube/Spotify late at night - but I can't promise to be really good at that.
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I had something up here about the silliness of this section, which seems to be more about showing off one's breadth or hipness (or the breadth of one's hipness) than anything else. It's like everyone just wants everyone else to know they've read Murakami.

I haven't read Murakami, but I'm owning it.

And this is something much better talked about and shared than laundry-listed.
Six things I could never do without
Like many others here, I want to say something like "there's nothing I couldn't do without." That would emphasize my free-spirited non-materialistic nature, right?
I'd be totally deceiving myself if I said that. I like lots of things and would be loathe to give them up. At the same time, I'm not really that covetous or fetishistic. Let's just go to the next question...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things I want to write or am writing.

When I'm going to get to live abroad (in Europe, probably) again.

If not that, then which ski town I'm going to transplant myself to. Taos? Stowe? Whistler? Zermatt? Options abound.

How so many women here mention how unimpressed they are by guys who put shirtless selfies, shots of their abs, etc. up on their profiles. To which I ask - actual adult men are still doing that? I can't be bothered to go looking, so someone please tell me - is it really that widespread a thing? I shouldn't be quite so dumbstruck if it is, but I guess I still am.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies widely.
Sometimes I'm in my living room, working on some odd little abstract painting while listening to Townes.
At other times, I'm in my living room, working on some odd little abstract painting while listening to Eno.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You'll have to do better than that to get me to talk.
You should message me if
Your methods are inscrutable, and the proof is irrefutable.
The two of us
