My self-summary
I love visual art, film, and music, but we all do so I guess we can disregard that as a distinguishing trait. I also skateboard almost everyday. My life is a series of embarrassing moments. Social justice is important to me. I have a penchant for puns and alliteration. I recently went through a phase where I had a pretty unhealthy relationship with sudoku puzzles. I love to learn new things and being exposed to different walks of life. I think it's weird that people take instagram photos of their food. If you were to judge me based on my handwriting or handshakes, you'd probably think I'm a terrible person.
What I’m doing with my life
Graduated from PSU last year with a degree that I don't have any clue what one does with. I draw and paint, and right now that's more important to me than anything else in my life. Oh, and I make coffee for a job. If you think ambition/human worth is defined by how much $$ a person makes/would like to someday make, you should move on to the next profile, because that's not a priority of mine in the slightest.
I’m really good at
Expressing my opinions. Recognizing that I don't have all the answers. Giving people the benefit of the doubt. Admitting when I'm being a jackass. Paying compliments and meaning it. Tech decks (the little tiny skateboards for your fingers). I used to play in a pool league, so I'm pretty good at that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look like somebody they know
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Fitzgerald, Vonnegut, Kafka. Obsessive about music bios and graphic novels, notably Pekar, Robbins, Jansson, Crumb, Clowse, Burns, Hernandez brothers, Speigelman, Green.

Television: Twin Peaks, Seinfeld, My So-Called Life, and Mr. Show sums it up pretty well. Not very well informed when it comes to TV, admittedly, but I've seen Broad City and think it's pretty hilarious.

film: Argento, Solondz, Jarmusch, Sophia Coppola, Almodovar, Jadarowski, Cohen Brothers.

Music: Right now, Mississippi records mixtapes, shoegaze, doo wop, early 60's pop, lo fi, punk/post punk, outsider artists like the Shaggs and R. Stevie Moore, British indie pop. Spacemen 3. The Clean. Roky Erickson and Mazzy Star always.

Food: El Nutri Taco, por que no, zilla sushi.
The six things I could never do without
Skateboard. free boxes. bike lanes. the thyme iced tea from fresh pot. The 90's. Good sketch/stand up comedy

I could, however, do without hearing the following 4 songs in a karaoke bar ever again:

1. Bohemian Rhapsody
2. Sweet Home Alabama
3. Total Eclipse of the Heart
4. Don't Stop Believin'

Seriously guys, where's the originality?

oh, and I could also do without allergies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Power dynamics. Social justice. Cats. elitism. Where's Waldo books on tape.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching mockumentaries, rockumentaries, or shockumentaries. Or something else entirely.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was raised in a devout mormon household. Weird shit, let me tell you. The last thing that I shoplifted was A Walk To Remember when I was 19.
You should message me if
You have a strong sense of empathy. You acknowledge your relative privilege. You are passionate about something. You are constantly working on improving yourself. You are a feminist. You enjoy deep, meaningful conversation. If you enjoy playing pool, that doesn't hurt.

Please do not message me if you: don't think white privilege exists, think poor people are lazy, are a general asshole.
