My self-summary
One would suppose that this "summary" would ultimately devolve in to a collection of positive attributes that make me desirable while you lurk the rest of this wall of text... But for the sake of both brevity and honesty, I'm almost certain you've skipped to the pictures to make that crucial decision...

My name is Joshua, if you're pondering. I'm a culinary school graduate, working on moving out of the US at some point in the next couple years. I spend most of my time with friends or working, which is not terribly interesting in itself, but I do keep a rather large circle of intelligent and talented people around me to ward of boredom. I'm really just trying to have as much fun as I can squeeze out of this odd period of near adulthood. So beside work and becoming a chef, I have no real priorities or hinderances that are keeping me grounded to any one place. It's not a lifestyle I'd personally recommend, but it's working out for me so far.
What I’m doing with my life
-Embracing ennui as a lifestyle, not a state of mind.

- Keeping my life free of any attachment or hinderance. Allows me to come and go as I please, without worry of consequence.

- working for The Top, cooking your food.

- I'm the MC/Hypeman at Neon Liger every Saturday. I get paid to make fun of you, drink, and yell. You don't understand how much joy this brings me.

-Reddit is pretty damn important too...
I’m really good at
-Give me enough time and a well enough stocked pantry, and I can make something worth eating... Although should your pantry look anything like mine, I do hope you enjoy the subtleties of milksteak...

-My fingers punch guitar strings and those strings make funny sounds to match the sounds getting thrown out of my maw. I also scream along to top 40 hits, without the slightest bit of irony.

-Breaking things. Attempting to put them back together. Realizing it's fuck-all and living with it in it's current state. This is not just for material possessions.

- Various forms of fisticuffs. I'm not a giant brute though, it's mostly for fitness, that and knowing I could fight a bear if the situation presented itself.

-And whistling... I'm a fantastic whistler
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a large scar cresting over my forehead... Depending on my current mood and the person asking, will dictate the origin of said scar
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors: Chuck Palahniuk ( The first 5 novels. He's been phoning in everything else), Charles Bukowski, Augusten Burroughs, and Haruki Murakami, Grover the Monster

Books: American Psycho, Lunar Park, The Rules of Attraction, The Metamorphosis, Naked Lunch, The Road, World War Z, Kitchen Confidential, The Monster at the End of the Book, Devil in the Kitchen and more graphic novels/comics than I'm willing to admit to on a dating site.

Movies: Brick, Fight Club, Memento, Inception, (500) Days of Summer, Funny Games, Requiem for a Dream and a laundry list of others, I'm entirely too lazy to list. You can probe deeper if you feel the inclination. I enjoy films, so I've probably watched it or fallen asleep to it.

TV- Adventure time. No Reservations. Infomercials. Static

Music: Conor Oberst when he was still doing blow and depressed. Alex Turner, Abel Tesfay, Sean Daley and Tomas Kalnoky can do no wrong in my eyes. If you know any other song by Hall and Oates, besides "Maneater" or "You Make my Dreams", you've already won my heart and everlasting affection. I listen to waka flocka on rainy days...

Food: I'd do terrible things to nice people for runny eggs, pho, streaky bacon, avocados, organ meats and banh mi... Food in general is pretty dope considering it's my career and livelihood. I could however live the rest of my adult life without ever eating anything banana related again. Vile fruit/herbaceous plant/seed thing.
Six things I could never do without
1. A kitchen job
2. Whiskey, Bourbon, Rye, Scotch. Neat
3. Cigarettes
4. Sleep aids
5. Cereal
6. Money... It can purchase happiness, you just haven't tried hard enough.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Flavor profiles. The exact moment Guy Fierri started calling himself a chef and why no one had the sense to stop him. Existential pillow talk. If my neighbors are in a constant state of domestic dispute or are just severely hearing impaired...
On a typical Friday night I am
Working... Then probably drinking and dancing at boca. Nothing clever or snarky here, I just really like dancing and booze.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am comfortable in my masculinity enough to say that I will go in to a manic sprint if I see a wasp or hear buzzing near me... I'm not ashamed to say this
You should message me if
You suppose any of this wall of text is interesting or at the very least quaint to you... Or you need a drinking partner, who is well versed in polite small talk.
The two of us
