Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a huge culture buff. My present infatuations have been museums
and galleries in DC. I try to keep up regularly with the changing
exhibits. I was recently accepted to grad school near DC, but keep
up with a few other fields beyond what I'm going to school for. I
was heavily considering minoring in linguistics at one point.
I've been reading the classics for a few months and I really like
to paint (but I'm not too good); I was an art student my first year
of college. If I go hiking or something outdoorsy, I end up getting
interested in the biology of the place. I prefer to listen to
people talk, than talk myself. I play games as a last resort.
Yeah. I'm a nerd.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a part-time social scientist, "IT guy," and writer. Used to
translate and design websites.
Not too long ago I volunteered at an elementary school; I taught
gifted first graders and loved it. I often think about going back
to working with kids in some capacity.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Really good at: nothing. I don't think I've locked-in mastery of
anything at this point. But I like art. I used to be good-like with
a sketchpad and camera. I've been painting recently. I love me some
science and have an eye for details -- necessary for my jobs.
I take it back. I'm really good at not being a space dinosaur.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I like all sorts. I really go into Malcom Gladwell's works.
I like anything by Oscar Wilde. Name of the Wind. Song of Ice and
Fire are good fiction pieces. I started reading Paul Ekman's psych
stuff work work, but I actually enjoyed most of his books. I'm
reading Herodotus' Inquiry and Lovecraft's short stories right
My movie and show list are too many to count. If it's thought
provoking, dramatic, funny, violent, fiction, or historically
accurate, I'll probably like it.
Food: I love Italian. Though, I can't say that I dislike anything
really. Something weird is that I don't really like mashed
Music: Breaking Benjamin, Cage the Elephant, Jimmy Eat World, 3
Doors Down... Love those guys. Banks. MSMR. Misterwives... lots of
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I know the word doesn't have any meaning in today's world, but I
like the idea of being an 'honorable' person. I sometimes think I
was a born a few centuries too late, and maybe it's naive of me,
but really appreciate people who keep their word and act with some
nobility. Courtesy and kindness are never out of style.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
One or a combination of:
Reading/gaming after getting takeout.
Drinks with coworkers if we're angry enough.
Binge on TV.
Shooting some shit.
If it's spring/summer, going to for run or hike.
