My self-summary
I once got so mad about how bad I am at self-summary that I made a hand gesture which knocked over a whole thing of trail mix. It took a long while to pick it up! A lesson learned.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm nearing the end of a PhD program in history, so, teaching, reading, writing, looking for jobs, keeping the anxiety at bay, etc.

I've also been getting more involved in political organizing lately- figure it's time, you know? Let me know if you want to know more about that, even if you're not interested in dating/meeting, and I might be able to help with that.
I’m really good at
- Listening
- Respectable bachelor cooking
- Book recommendations
The first things people usually notice about me
Resting gravitas face. My thoughts are a lot sillier than my face usually lets on.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot- like enough where I'm not sure what to put down here. History, theory, scifi, "classics," journalism, etc. Some favorite writers include Jorge Luis Borges, Doris Lessing, Herman Melville, Philip K Dick, Octavia Butler, the list could go on... music and movie-wise, I have favorites (Townes Van Zandt, The Pack A.D., the movies of Michael Mann, Cadillac Man, Children of Men) but don't know as much about them. My favorite shows recently are Peep Show, Arrested Development, and Rick and Morty. As for food, let me make you a steak! Some people have told me I'm pretty good at it.
Six things I could never do without
Reading material, somewhere to walk around, my spice cabinet, pens, slack-time, amusing stuff to watch (whether in person or on a screen)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The dynamics of history, literary criticism, and the logistics of transporting groceries.
On a typical Friday night I am
I like a good, cheap, unpretentious bar... I know a few but if you know more, let me know. I also like board games, though I'll admit, I get more into kind of depressing games about war than into fun games about trading sheep or whatever... but I can do either. Ultimately, the REAL board game is the friends you make along the way!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
As a child I was a disgracefully poor loser. Really poor!
You should message me if
You want to meet someone who wants to head towards something long term, but thinks that involves having a good, relaxed time in the short term first.

Or if you just want to hang out and talk about books and socialism and maybe I can make us some food. That works too.
The two of us
