My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Lets see, this is where I sell myself to you right?

Well my mom says I'm quite the catch, and I'm pretty sure she wouldn't lie to me. I'm one of those introverted like people. Quiet things with a few people, that's my speed, or exciting outdoors things...with a few people, still my speed. That said, I'm not shy, I'm very calm and easy to talk to if a bit sarcastic and wry.

I also do a lot of biking, I have to stop myself from buying more and more bikes, managing to stay with three for now for commuting, trails, and long tours. I do a lot of hiking, or tooling around in water as well. Tend to do things outdoors much more often than social party type outings.

I like who I am, and I'm happy with myself alone. I enjoy sharing little moments with people though. The smell and feel of fresh rain, rough feeling of a wall on my finger tips. A little quip and quiet contentment in sharing those moments.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm not from here, it's a bit different than my home in Wyoming. I've been here for a few years, and I love the area, whatever you want to do is just available here.

I was in the Marine Corp Infantry for a number of years, and then I drove here from North Carolina the long way. Hitting almost all the states going north to south over and over slowly heading west looking for where I'd want to live.

Now I'm taking advantage of the GI Bill (great benefit, they pay for school and they pay you a monthly stipend to live on, it's amazing). So I'm in college working on a double major of forensic chemistry and biology trying to get the most out of "free" college and income. Maybe end up doing something I'll enjoy in the process.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being calm and patient.

I've been cooking a lot recently. Seems to be coming out well. In reality I'm just really good at following directions.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"Soulful and warm eyes, like visual chocolate." - A friend of mine.
Yeah that seems sufficiently complementary.

And I've apparently got grit, I've seen both versions of True Grit, so I think I know what that means.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
TL:DR - I enjoy a good story be it books, TV, movies or games. Don't stress too much about what kind it is.

Books: Books man, books are the best. Love me some good transgressive fiction like J.G. Ballard, Chuck Palahniuk (I liked his earlier stuff anyway), and Joey Comeau. Horror and sort of high minded science fiction like Asimov is my jam. H.P. Lovecraft is probably my favorite author. I admittedly read or reread a lot of young adult stuff.
Currently Reading: Perdido Street Station, China Melville

Movies/Shows: Essentially go over the books section and apply here as well. Love a good musical, Moulin Rouge! is still my favorite movie, and I'm fairly certain Battlestar Galactica is the best show ever. I spend a lot of time watching and rewatching Aaron Sorkin's and Joss Whedon's particular brand of oratory madness. Really enjoyed Her recently.

I watch a lot of Youtube educational shows. Vsauce, The Brain Scoop, Crash Course, Minute Physics, PBS Idea Channel is the best.

Music: Soundtracks, lots of remixes and electronica stuff, classical, instrumentals, industrial, singer/songwriter folksy stuff, and I've recently come to love blues and jazz, given that my dad is a jazz musician I probably should have started listening to it a while ago.

Food: Mediterranean and Thai are always good choices, creole is my favorite. Is this a thing people bond over? Do you care what food I eat?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I've done without most things, and could do so again. In the spirit of the question though (and without obvious things like air/shelter):

1. Books, I'm banking on this not counting as many many things because I want all of them. Maybe an e-reader?
2. Ingredients and a plan on something to cook.
3. Water, I know we need it to live, but beyond that it's just fun to be in and around.
3a. Rain, running around in the rain is one of my favorite things.
4. My bike(s), I love those things and I'm learning maintenance and building now.
5. Touch, just touching things, I like running my fingers over something, I'm very tactile.
6. Hmm, lets go with just time to relax. Time to just sit and think or do something calm.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Science popularization and education.

The sort of things the government funds.

Where humanity is going/can go in the long term.

How to be more like Uncle Iroh.

How life is 10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will, 5% pleasure, 50% pain, and 100% reason to remember the name. (Which is Shane, by the way)

How to pick up chicks:
- Cup your hands around them protectively.
- Lift them from the ground.
- Gently kiss their fuzzy heads.
- Say “peep peep” calmingly so as not to be pecked.

How to stop myself from buying more bikes, just more and more bikes (up to three now).

So many things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Whatever I want, that's what's great about being an adult (ignoring for a moment all those responsibilities and bills).

Some things I've done in the past (note: may or may not have been on a Friday):
- Symphony, it was pretty awe inspiring, I'd like to go again.
- Ice skating, I was real bad despite being something I did a lot when younger.
- Reading a book, books, so good right?
- Plays, Wild Bride was really good.
- Comedy shows, Mike Birbiglia has been my favorite so far.
- Go kart racing, another thing I was pretty bad at.
- Sitting at home watching Netflix, pretty much the best.
- Studying, so I don't fail math classes.
- Heading out to where the nature is. This is what I do mostly, I'm not very good with finding and planning things that are social, but I can go hike, or end up on a mountain/in a forest/in the water pretty easily.
- Playing Dark Souls
- Sometimes I'm just heading home to have myself some juice, snuggle with my blankie, and go nap nap.

It's mostly studying, so much studying.

Look at all those things, I'm so exciting (and often sarcastic).

Mostly I just want to do quiet things at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I still use 'Never Eat Soggy Waffles' for North, East, South, and West. Every time. I'm trying to get the hang of actually using cardinal directions.

I tend to work off the "fake it until you make it" philosophy, it has been working out (or maybe I'm just faking that it's working out and hoping it will if I do that long enough ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

I sleep with a stuffed sky bison.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you are truly outrageous. Truly, truly, truly, outrageous.

Or any reason, I like getting messages. I try not to get lost in the deluge of messages most of you get, so some indication of interest is always welcome.

It is apparently worth noting that I live very near BART and am more than happy to go into the City. Maybe I'm a country yokel from Wyoming, but I really like riding BART. Also I have a car, and a bike(s), and legs, I'm prepared to go all over the place.
