My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Weekly random update (to keep this profile from getting stale):

12/3: Thankfully Turkey Day is behind us and all I have standing between me and Winter Holidays is the minor hurdle of Final Exams. Isn't this the time of year single people are most likely to commit suicide? Screw that noise, I'm ready to revel!

Anyways, on to the profile stuff . . .
I love learning new stuff and new skills; I've always got a book (usually non-fiction) in my truck/backpack and some in-progress project occupying my bedroom/garage/backyard. Neither my brain or hands can stay idle for long. And because I'm always trying to understand things or turn them inside-out, I can be pretty blunt or critical (but always honest!) when I talk.
Hmm, it seems that 'tact' is one subject I should learn more about.
For all the book-learning I've acquired, I can be pretty oblivious/ignorant of social and interpersonal nuances. (If you're a gal who needs an empath or mind-reader for a boyfriend, save us both the heartache and keep looking.)
I think labels are shortcuts used by lazy minds, but if you have to, you could apply the terms 'liberal' and 'INTJ' to me and I wouldn't protest. I'm not into money and consumerism; I'm content with just the basics and I'm more interested in activity and opportunities rather than possessions and status.
Frankly, I've got a lot less impulse control than I should have at my age; I won't back down from a crazy adventure or dare or roadtrip on a whim. But left to my own devices, I'm content to stay at home and quietly bury myself in a project. Speaking of that, my main hobby is cosplay, which involves a lot of hands-on construction and artsy-craftsy sort of stuff. I enjoy carpentry too; just give me an excuse to build some furniture or a tiny house.
I often find myself admitting that "I don't like people." That's probably not flattering, but I blurt it out often enough that it must carry some truth to it? Or to put it another way, I'm often disappointed by peoples' behavior.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently left my career as an engineer and am now attending UTD to pursue my teacher certification in physics. In a couple of semesters I'll be teaching, but for now I'm a student. I'm still fairly new to the Metroplex so I'm slowly carving out a niche for myself here.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Saying what everyone's thinking, but no one has the balls (or shamelessness) to admit.
MacGuyvering (or improvising, if you must call it that)
Planning and designing projects . . . execution, not so much. I've so many unfinished projects, it ain't even funny.
Building shit!
Not breaking the spines of books as I read them.
Leaving social events without anyone noticing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My RBF. Or how I lose my shit over cute things in a very un-manly way. I mean, c'mon, have you ever SEEN a baby donkey?!?! It's like a horse-rabbit!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Like I said, I love non-fiction. Evolution, cosmology, psychology, and sociology are recurring themes in my library. I just love to learn about the forces behind the human and physical world. Jared Diamond, Richard Dawkins, and Brian Greene are some of my favorite authors.
The only fiction series that I've read recently is the Game of Thrones. (No, I haven't seen the show; I'm content with how I've imagined it in my head.)
The last couple of books I read were: "Why is the Penis Shaped Like That?" and "Christianity: The First 3000 Years".

I don't really watch TV with any regularity, but when I do, it's often Comedy Central. The shows that I was most recently into include: Broad City, Workaholics, Naked & Afraid, Drunk History, Archer, Adventure Time, and Louie. I need to watch the new season of OITNB, but I no longer have Netflix. :[
Occasionally I'll follow a new anime series, but that seems to be happening less and less often. The last series I got into were "Flowers of Evil" and "Princess Jellyfish". Go figure.

Every time I hear the question, "What kind of music do you listen to?" I die a little inside. I have no idea what 'genres' I listen to; I really wish I knew so I could find more of it. I tend to enjoy foreign music, generally. I think that's because I often get bored/insulted by shallow, repetitive lyrics.
A few of my longtime/current favorite groups are: Pizzicato Five, Humming Urban Stereo, BoA, Goldfrapp, Cansei de Ser Sexy, Paris Match, and Qypthone.
The only radio preset in my truck is NPR (and oddly enough, it's the only place I've ever heard any of the above-mentioned artists played).

"Aliens" is probably the one movie that I'll watch whenever it's on, without fail. Other random faves include: The Professional, Little Miss Sunshine, The Thief & the Cobbler, Gravity, (anything by Kurosawa), Memento.

The only type of food I avoid is American "cuisine"; everything else is fair game.
In my kitchen you'll probably find lots of fruit, veggies, and nuts. Not because I'm vegan, but because I'm often too lazy to cook a real meal, so anything that can be eaten raw is aces in my book.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A book to kill idle time with,
the sky (I'm not trying to be poetic; I NEED that infinity above me),
a camera to save what I'll inevitably forget,
a bottle of rum (for social lubricant),
and my tools!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My projects. Whether it's sewing, building, sculpting, or whatever. I love a challenging project. I have to forbid myself from thinking about my 'projects' shortly before bed, or else I'll stay awake all night brainstorming/fantasizing. (In that one respect, it's similar to thinking about 'women'.)

Pondering how I can get my urban friends to go camping with me.

How can I continue to fool my students into thinking I know more than them?

When is the next celestial event, and will I be willing to lose sleep for it?

If I were sent back in time, what single item or body of knowledge would allow me to build an empire?

How am I going to build my house. (Can I just get started already?!?)

Why can't I indent paragraphs on this website?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm not at a friend's house for drinks and chatting till after midnight, then I'm probably covered in sawdust, resin, or thread in my garage, working on my latest project.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I tend to use my mouth as a third hand way too often. It's probably not the most hygienic habit to have. Maybe I have an oral fixation? Hmm, I never thought of it that way.

And if my dreams have any truth to them, I'm more hungry for cuddling than for sex. My subconscious is disappointingly PG-13.
