My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Enjoying post-graduate school life (a.k.a. normal adulthood).

I like to go to movies, listen to music, read, workout, occasionally practice martial arts, play pool, salsa dance, try different restaurants, and learn new things (e.g. I'm taking a film class now).

I am inquisitive.

I like to laugh and smile a lot.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to enjoy what Chicago has to offer.

Enjoying the occasional out of country travel opportunities.

Prepping my classes and endlessly grading.

Pipetting, a lot, I know sounds exciting right?

Part-time ethnographer

Trying to have a little fun in between all of that:-).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sending awkward messages in an attempt to initiate conversation. Seriously, one of them may have even brought you to my profile.

Coming up with great ideas for other people's work.

Background research and field work.

Writing succinctly (except for this profile...).

I have an excellent memory, not so much for things I should be memorizing in school or raw lists of facts (especially numbers), but for stories people tell me. Random facts/odd trivia that I probably don't need to know also tend to stick.

Playing pool (well maybe not really good, but I'm at least pretty good and I enjoy it)

Making omelets, more recently poached eggs... I like learning how to cook things.

I've also been told that I'm good at figuring out what gifts to give people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I seem very laid back and reserved. Then if they are lucky they can find out how excited and passionate I can get about things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: Lord of the Rings, Art of War, Frankenstein, Brave New World, George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, About a Boy, Survivor, House of Leaves. Lovecraft.

A lot of old samurai movies (Seven Samurai, Sword of Doom, Yojimbo, etc). Pretty much anything Edgar Wright has done, including Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Movies that involve Time Travel.

Just watched on netflix: The Wolfpack, Master of None, and Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau all three of which were great.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good friends/family of course :-).
My Passport
Ipod (I love listening to podcasts, especially the Tobolowsky files)

To be fair though, I have gone extended periods of time without some of these things, so it's more of a list of things that I regularly have in my life now.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Human Biology, statistics, my next lecture, traveling to far off places.

Anthropology things the X-files gets wrong (which more interests than annoys me).

How the internet is changing the world.

Why people conflate genetics and biology and how to stop it.

How to best survive the zombie apocalypse (well not a lot of time, but it comes up...)

Rule #32: Enjoy the little things.

When I'm on here this: "Dating site algorithms are meaningless. They really don’t do anything. In fact, the research suggests that so-called “matching algorithms” are only negligibly better at matching people than random chance."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
For the most part I make my own schedule these days, so I usually have fun on whatever night something interesting is going on in the city or my friends are free. That can make Friday nights pretty variable and open to possibilities.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I'm clicking around on people's profiles looking at similar users and I go down some kind of rabbit hole that takes me to someone's profile who is in their early 20's.

So, I'm just going to put this out there, sorry women in your early 20's I do not want to date you, this goes double if you are in normal undergraduate age ranges (18-22). No offense, I'm sure you are all lovely, articulate, and intelligent ladies, but after teaching a fair amount of undergraduate classes that would just make me feel creepy (super creepy, no judgement if you do this, but it's not for me).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you know about some great events occurring in Chicago or would like to join me at one (or both) of the following:

You have a play or comedy show that you would recommend or want to go check out.

You want to go to the music box theatre, Siskel center, or Brew and View.

If you would like to take a cooking class together. Or some other type of class, I'm open to suggestions.

You want to join me for bar trivia.

If you want to play some pool.

Most of all: We have some stuff in common and you want to hang out and get to know each other to see how well we click.

Also, just for a PSA: The sun is bigger than the earth.
