Day 259

one of my friends, a wonderful artist (two different links there) who i'm honored to know had tagged me in a facebook note that'd been going around. i find most things on facebook other than communication to be mostly silly but i kind of fell into the opportunity and creativity of the '25 random things' bulletin and filled out my own in response. go ahead and follow her artwork links before you decide if you're interested enough to read on. that'll be much more entertaining.

rules: once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. at the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. you have to tag the person who tagged you. if i tagged you, it's because i want to know more about you.

(to do this, go to “notes” under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your 25 random things, tag 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.)

1. i don't appreciate facebook spam and sometimes block friends if they push it too much. i'll still see them in person.

2. i left illinois in may thinking i was going to do video production for a summer and haven't been back home since. the adventure continues.

3. my little brother makes me proud of him.

4. sometimes i feel bad for a little while just after denying facebook groups even if they represent good causes.

5. for the first time in my life politics is starting to mean something to me.

6. i'd choose a chill night with friends or reading or jamming instead of some ruckus scene at a bar or pub. unless our band is the draw that night.

7. i play in a band.

8. also, not included above, is a chill gig as lounge pianist at a 4.5 star resort.

9. documentaries and non-fiction film and literature are two of my favorite intakes. and music. and food.

10. 'maybe i'll build me a cabin in the woods. sip whiskey tend the goods. read the books i never would.'

11. i didn't know that a new zealand native could be called a 'kiwi' until last may.

12. i'm a strange combination of a realist/romantic and sometimes wonder if such inspired endeavors will one day end up as a big dead end or be forced to be put down in order to have to survive by some sort of job or career. or maybe the complete opposite.

13. freedom, truth, inspiration, adventure, balance, peace, and faith.

14. my grandpa inspired me to play harmonica.

15. bob dylan

16. into the wild

17. some days i miss playing baseball and wonder about going back to school to try to play again. most days i'm glad to be free.

18. some people think i'm a jerk when they first meet me and sometimes for a little while afterwards.

19. i'm not sure i could ever go back to living without mountains or an ocean again.

20. i want to be a writer, but don't like the jargon and titles and ideologies of it all. same for musician. videographer. photographer. journalist. and janitor?

21. we use our personality charm to receive bigger ice cream scoops when buying the dollar fifty bowl across the street.

22. i don't want to be rich.

23. i don't want to be poor.

24. i tend to break some rules if they're not too serious.
