My self-summary
*************************************************
Author's Note: I am not an astronaut, although I did study aerospace engineering in college. And I haven't written scifi since I was in high school. But I was looking around one day and noticed... everyone's profiles are the same on here. Why so serious, lol? If you've got a sense of humor, keep reading. If not, thanks and good luck! In the interest of becoming the change I'd like to see, I've taken a risk, stepped out of the box, and completely redone my profile. While all the answers have a quirky spin to them, they are truthful. Be real, and tell me who you are. Or tell me a funny lie and I'll still learn something about who you are. Or just be up for a real world conversation. :-)
*************************************************

Hi, I'm crew member Anthony. I'm a human male on Space Ship Earth, sector 42.2814° N, 83.7483° W., also known as Ann Arbor by the current crew, but it's gone by many names throughout the eons. I got on board this ship to look for adventures. So, you won't really find me sitting around watching TV, but rather out and about, meeting new people, trying new things, making every day as unique and interesting as I can.
What I’m doing with my life
Running missions in various parts of the ship, fixing computers and teaching crew members self-defense. You never know when you'll need that when traveling through space. My duties on the ship are generally 09:00-17:00 hours; sometimes longer, if the ship's machines are really putting up a fight, lol. When I get off duty, I like to go explore, meet people, and enjoy the wonders of my little corner of the universe, hopefully with the crew members that I've grown closer to during the journey.

In the past, I taught kids math and science to help them understand the ship and it's travels better. Maybe I'll get back to that, soon. Or maybe I'll find a better way to use the ship's computers to make educating kids better - that's what I studied at the local research university in this sector.

Checking out the natural beauty of the ship and the universe. This is my way of worshiping the Flying Spaghetti Monster - in return, he blesses the ship, provides us with gravity, and keeps us safe from asteroids and aliens.

Revolving, orbiting, and wobbling. Imagine how messed up it would be if the computers stopped working and the ship stopped spinning, or spun out of control?
I’m really good at
Dancing my way around the Sun, exactly once every year.
Being open minded and finding the humor in any situation.
Cooking. I've received many a compliment on my Asian stir fries and Italian dishes.
Problem solving. (That's pretty much all I do all day at work.)
Standing up for people.
Circles. And infinite spirals, which are kind of like circles that move toward the horizon.
Gardening. I don't have a garden right now, but I love peonies, fragrant roses (not hardy roses - high five if you know what I mean!), dahlias with prominent geometric patterns, and sweet, red, cherry tomatoes...
Teaching people how to do swing and blues dance.
Being present, listening, and caring.
Staying up later then is prudent.
Scrabble. Or Bananagrams. Or any other game that involves letters rattling around in your brain.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't own a space suit, even though I'm traveling through space. Also, they want to know how I would fit my hair into one if I needed to.

Also, I'm usually dancing. If there's music, I'm usually dancing. That's how I maintain my sanity on this long, crazy journey! :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
2001: A Space Odyssey, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human. Ok, not 3rd Rock.

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. War of the Worlds. Ender's Game.

Major Tom (in all it's incarnations). It's a Small World After All. Little Fluffy Clouds (by The Orb). Space Cowboy (by Jamiroquai). Ok, not it's a small world after all.

Astronaut Ice Cream. No, actually that stuff sucks. Really, the food here on Space Ship Earth is AMAZING. Talk about traveling first class. Brew pubs that use organic locally grow ingredients? The restaurants from the various sectors of the ship (Thai, Indian, Italian, etc.) make sure that I will never want for flavor. How many ship cafeterias have that kind of awesome? Ann Arbor is also very supportive of beer snobs - most space ships don't even *allow* alcohol, lol.
The six things I could never do without
Besides the necessities of space travel...?

Gravity. (Ok, not necessary, but every thing it's just 10 times harder without it.)
Fun.
Learning.
Friends/family. (The line here gets blurry.)
NPR/BBC/Radio Free Mars. (Double bonus points if you get the reference!)
Moving... (biking, hiking, martial arts, solo dance parties when a song comes on in the store, swing dance, etc...)
Good food and beer.
Love.
Human rights for all.
Challenging silly, arbitrary rules, that don't make sense, aren't fair, or don't make the world a better place.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Energy, trajectories, and pathways. (Both for the ship and for myself, and in my case, both physically and spiritually.)
The wondrous nature of stars in the space ship's field of view, and the meaninglessness of stars on OKC.
The answers to life's persistent questions.
How can I be the change I want to see in the world?
Are we human? Or are we dancer?
Something someone said on NPR.
The hardest thing people can ever do is tell themselves the truth, and all learning begins with the simple statement, I do not know... So, what truths do I hide from myself, what truths do I not know?
How many people recognize me in real space from OKC?
How would people judge themselves on OK Cupid based on their profiles, if they were looking at it from the other side? (something tells me it wouldn't be pretty, lol.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Slingshotting around the Sun, modeling orbital dynamics by way of swing dance, having a local craft brew with fellow crew-members or one of the local inhabitants, and listening to or dancing to live music at one of the ship's mess halls. Then stumbling down to the head, and back to my quarters.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Space is a scary place to be, all alone, but a beautiful place to share!
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–35
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
