My self-summary
Okcupid is urging (strong-arming? forcing? threatening? aggressively insisting?) me to fill out my profile. To be honest, I'm not sure where to even begin. My story isn't all that exciting and/or different than most NYC transplants, I'm sure. I grew up in a small suburban town where you can still find the same people hanging out at the same cornerstore years after high school graduation. I decided I didn't want to be another town lifer/breeder; so I left. I bounced around from coast to coast before finally landing in NYC. Call it fate, chance, where all paths merged into one or whathaveyou but here I am. I've been living in NYC for a little more than a year now pursuing any and all creative endeavors that come my way. I like to go out, explore the city, hang with a tight circle of friends, and obtain as much knowledge as I can. That pretty much sums it up until I have more time to think of a better (more clever?) description of myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Pursuing any and all creative and/or intellectual endeavors while throwing caution to the wind. I'd rather take a chance than play it safe. It's not always the easiest way of living but it's gotten me this far just fine.
I’m really good at
doing a lot of things fairly well but not mastering any one skill. (I'm working on fixing that.)
The first things people usually notice about me
People seem to often think I'm French. I'm really not sure why. I tend to come across as reserved until I get to know someone. Or perhaps it's a mix of looking dazed and confused versus lost deep in thought? I don't know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Way too many to answer. It hurts my head to even think about it. Do people really fill this section out? This is probably more interesting to discuss in person anyway.

However, I will say that things I'm always down to do: go see a band play, spend hours browsing at the Strand, go on a road trip, grab coffee, hit up a movie at one of the independent theaters in the city, and hang out in the park just to name a few.
Six things I could never do without
Stimulating conversation, sleep, coffee, art/music, a varied routine, and laughter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
It's mostly just spur of the moment. My next art project. My next trip. I try not to dwell on too much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Grabbing drinks with a friend or going to a concert or staying in to work on art stuff or whatever comes up. I'm usually up for anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I don't really think I'll meet anyone special on Okcupid and that it's not as great as people try to convince me it is? (Or is this something I'm not supposed to admit outloud?)

Update: I'm still not very impressed by OKC (but I'm hoping I'll find someone who can change my mind).
You should message me if
you think you can engage my interest with witty banter, laughter, and a desire to do anything in the spur of the moment.
