ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I am a PhD student in English Literature at USC. I do research in Irish literature and state development, and I love what I research. And I believe in most of the tenets of Marxist theory. I'm a bleeding-heart liberal, but I'm open-minded. Before that, I was a certified Special Education Teacher at a high school in Baltimore. I'm not from LA originally -- I moved here 6 years ago for graduate school, and only now am I really getting accustomed to the culture and vibe here and finding my niche. Although I mostly know people from college and USC out here, I'm trying to meet new people and maybe spark something.

I'm pretty sarcastic, and my sense of humor is very observational, but in a very random way. I make a lot of puns; very, very bad puns are dear to my heart.

I grew up mostly in Augusta, Georgia, and I sort of miss it. But having spent four years in undergrad in northern Illinois, Chicago far and wide remains my favorite city. Call me crazy, but I love winter and frigid weather (and seasons, generally). I think that cold winters help me appreciate the other 3 seasons.

I love books and music - I am probably one of the few people I know that still buys CDs. I listen to a lot of indie rock and go to a lot of shows (probably a few times a month, at the Echo, the Satellite, the El Rey, or Alex's Bar in Long Beach). But seriously, you should message me if you want to go to a show.

I'm training for a marathon later this year, but I'm going to do a half-marathon sometime over the summer. Let's see how long that lasts.

PS: if you've actually met someone that's 3'0" or 8'11", let me know, because that is HILARIOUS. Pictures, please, because if you don't have pictures it didn't happen.
