About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Fight boredom! and live with more uncertainty and less money.

ABOUT ME

i'm 20, vegetarian/freegan, a recent college dropout, a taurus, a lot of things. i went to high school with a lot of future frat boys and sorority girls, then to a hippy dippy college with a lot of activists and art students and wonderfully eccentric people, and then i found myself hanging around a lot of punks. i've learned to get along with all sorts of folks and i find that we've all got something to learn from each other. i'm a big fan of dumpsters. i would love to learn anything you can teach me, whether intellectual or practical (or utterly useless). i'm a bit of a coffee snob (blame three barista jobs), but my connoisseurish snobbery ends there. i like beer and whiskey. i especially enjoy a good bonfire, whether backyard, in the woods, or on a beach. i watched all seven seasons of buffy this past summer and am shameless. i enjoy hitchhiking and would love to find an experienced freight hopper willing to take me under their wing. i have no idea what i want to do with my life, but i suspect that i'll stumble upon it sooner or later, if i haven't already. there are countless places i'd like to travel, and my recently acquired freedom from college will hopefully allow me to start.

PHILOSOPHY

Music, Movies, and Books

i haven't seen too many movies, but i enjoy most and tend to be pretty damn uncritical. so i'm open to suggestions.

as for music, i like a wide variety, but i've a terrible memory for it and don't know the names of half of what's on my own ipod. lately though: jawbreaker, dessa, simon and garfunkel, elliott smith, i would set myself on fire for you, manu chao, 1905, crystal castles, the distillers, johnny hobo, des ark, tom waits, and earth crisis.

books: so so many, and so many more to read. a couple off the top of my head: a heartbreaking work of staggering genius, running with scissors, harry potter (amirite?), ishmael, stuff by murray bookchin, one flew over the cuckoo's nest, stuff by hakim bey (especially the TAZ - temporary autonomous zone), johnny got his gun, the perks of being a wallflower, poisonwood bible, camus' books. also, i like reading theory but my mind's not always cut out for it - sparknotes edition, perhaps?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

drank water directly from a spring.

Teach, Learn, Share

i can try some tasty vegan/vegetarian recipes with you, give you a simple stick n poke tattoo or show you how to give yourself one, show ya how to make designs with the foam on yr latte if you've got a decent espresso machine, maybe go dumpstering with you and then cook a tasty freegan meal together?

things i would currently like to learn (along with just about any random thing you can teach): knitting, stuff about useful herbs, wild edibles, how to train hop without getting myself killed, juggling, basic conversational spanish, maybe if yr a theory nerd you could give me the accessible sparknotes version of foucault and deleuze/guattari. and really, any awesome thing you can teach me, be it practical or totally useless.
