My self-summary
I thought to myself that I should finally update some of this profile...and I find myself unable to settle on what to say. I've been a geek of some sort my whole life, and a passionate one at that. I am found quoting movies and tv shows all at the same time. My family and friends often text me with random pop culture questions.

I've also been a story teller my whole life. As a kid I wrote plays I forced my cousins to act out in and now as an adult I'm writing short stories, screenplays, and various other things to try to satisfy that itch.

I also just enjoy talking with people. I love a great discussion and/or debate. It can be about previously mentioned pop culture or things like politics or social change.

I try to be a conscious consumer of the media I watch. Which basically means I care deeply about how women, minorities, and alternative sexualities are represented in movies, television, comics, etc.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working on finishing up my MA in English at Cal Poly Pomona, and then hopefully begin teaching literature.

I also work as a tutor and after school teacher with middle schoolers.
I’m really good at
Quizzing people with random movie and tv trivia. It's a thing I do a lot. Like a lot a lot.

I am also excellent at laughing. No it's a skill okay, I am really good at it.

I'm told I'm also pretty good at analyzing media and literature critically. A friend is trying to get me to start up a blog to put up some of my essays and papers on it, it's a thing I'm considering.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. Or my hair. Sometimes my cheekbones. These are all my best facial features.

It used to be my fun hair colors but job searching has made that a no go for a while
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My current favorite song:
"it’s just like anti matter
it’s dumbo’s magic feather
you don’t need me here to cut you
you don’t need me here to cut you
you don’t need me here to cut you
you don’t need me here to cut you


e) I like most food, but I am a particular fan of Japanese, Mexican, and Italian food. I'll try just about anything once though.
The six things I could never do without
movies, music, books, my friends, the internet, and my dog
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How long I can put a task off, to be honest. I can be a bit of a procrastinator, but I always get things done in the end!

I also think a lot about what I'm going to do with my life when my graduate program is done. Will I work at a high school? A community college? A combination?

The answers to these questions change on a day to day basis.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the movies or on my computer, usually. Sometimes playing a video game, if I really feel like spicing things up. I could also be reading a book or hanging out with friends. I love going out for karaoke if the mood strikes.

I love going to live theater but don't do it as much as I'd like.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't drive.

I also don't have a whole lot of dating experience which I know isn't something everyone wants to deal with. So I guess I should put it out there, save us both some trouble.
You should message me if
If you want more than a hook up. If you're going to message me with something more than just "hey, beautiful" or "how are u?" (also please spell out the word you, it's only three letters). I'd like a little bit of substance, it shows effort.
