So my memory is bad. (I drink a lot. Sometimes.) I jumped in earlier this week and said I'd do one, but my spotty balking has caused hiccups. So here is my AMA.
Who are you?
Je suis Woobie. My old bio used to read: "father, teacher, student, athlete, writer, and raconteur." Mid 30s straight white dude with an affinity for way too many things to list here. Comics, sci fi, pop music, punk music, ska, philosophy, etc.
What do I find joy in?
Intentionally mispronounced words, well timed profanity, rampant optimism, and the crook of a thigh where the groin tendon leaves the torso.
What do I do?
Currently I teach high school literature. I'm preparing for the bar exam in February. I also professionally crastinate and find, no matter how convoluted, a way to self-sabotage.
Have I written before outside the kinja-verse?
Yes, although I shuttered the site when I went through my divorce. Someday I may reopen it.
What do I want for Backtalk?
Not to be too fuzzy, but just good vibes for everybody. I'm an optimist and just wish the best for all and think space already embodies that.
That said, ask away!
