The first things people usually notice about me
I have presence. People can't help but notice me, which is odd because I'm not especially tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(c)Music: I have and will ever love They Might Be Giants. I'm more interested in learning about what others are into.

(d)Foods: I love Mexican, Italian, Japanese, and Chinese food, and I'm quite fond of grandma's matzah ball soup (it's a secret recipe) but I'm always up for something new.

(a)Books: Currently reading the George R.R. Martin series "A Song of Ice and Fire." He's a good fantasy writer, probably due to the "RR Effect." Case in point: J.R.R. Tolkien's Hobbit books. Speaking of fantasy series, I got caught up in Brandon Sanderson's "The Stormlight Archive." I have a weakness for sci-fi/fantasy books, but I read all kinds. Lately, I have been laying off the genre fiction and am reading non-fiction and less pigeonholed types of fiction. Got my library card working overtime.

(b)I go out fairly frequently, but I don't get around to the cinema as often as I'd like. I usually like comedies over anything else. I have a fondness for old movies, sometimes really old. Have you ever seen Duck Soup (seminal Marx Brothers masterpiece) on the silver screen? I believe it's one of the funniest films ever produced.

(TV) My favorite show has to be It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I do a pretty good Charlie impression.
Six things I could never do without
You'd be surprised what the average person can do without, by as for me: I can't live without writing; I would need writing utensils, or some other form of recording what I write. I need good books. I need friends and family. I need sleep. I also need my family; I've come to realize they mean a lot more to me than I thought.
(Edit: Removed all the pretentious parts 😛)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My writing career.
How I can be better at being myself.
Driving cross-country to see what this nation is made of.
New karaoke songs to sing.
Designs for board games.
How my family is doing.
Whether or not I'll be losing my coverage.
Why this section lacks bullet points.
On a typical Friday night I am
With you: isn't that the best answer?
But if I'm not, I could be over a friend's house for board games, going out, or staying in and watching some show I wanted to catch up on, but never got around to.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open person.
You should message me if
You want to. I'm always open to new adventures with new people.
