Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well... I'm a dreamer in that I make everything larger than life
and very poetic when it doesn't have to be. I'm not really
religious, but I hope and believe in stuff as if life were a movie.
I like the cute stuff like holding hands and snuggling. I'm into
random adventures, like motorcycle rides to the coast for dancing
on the beach. I love traveling and meeting people wherever I go.
I'm incredibly over-educated given my friends and life choices, and
I am constantly working on learning more. I really like kids and
hope to have kids of my own. I'm annoyed about how adulthood isn't
supposed to include comic books, video games or Pokemon. I think
art is one of the most important things, even though I can't draw
to save my life. I'm incredibly active and believe in staying fit,
but would never use a gym membership if I had one. I'm very
energetic and am always tapping on the table or humming something.
And I'm really happy with where my life is and looking for new
people to share it with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a school teacher at the high school level. I've been teaching
for eight years now and I currently teach American Civics and World
History. I LOVE my job and plan to be teaching for the rest of my
life if possible. Though I am qualified for more and opportunities
do arise, I just really like what I do. While it's true that
teachers don't get paid what they deserve, we also don't do that
bad. I just bought my first house and that's where most of my time
goes. It turns out I'm awful with interior design, so let me know
if you could help with that. Also, I use the expendable time and
money that teaching yields to travel somewhere awesome every
summer. Just got back from Italy and Greece last June. I like
learning new things, and I'm always dabbling with new musical
instruments and foreign languages. And when I can, I catch up on
recent video games.
*update: I've decided to go back and finish my PhD starting this
summer. So I suppose that's where most of my time will go soon :/
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
explaining things and telling stories. Even in my teens, people
told me to find a job where people could listen to me talk, as I'm
apparently very inspiring and easy to listen to. I'm ENFP for those
who adhere to such things.
The first things people usually notice about me

is that I'm making them laugh. I'm quick to smile and push other
people to join in. Physically, I always shave my head, so people
often know me as the bald guy. However, once people talk to me they
get caught up on my eyes. My eyes change color from brown to green
and have thick gold rings in the middle. There's no name for it,
and my license just says gray.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Anything by Chuck Palahniuk, Neil Gaiman, Orson Scott Card, or
Jonathan Safran Foer. I like way too many movies to name, but I'll
always have a soft spot for the original Star Wars trilogy. These
days I imagine I've seen almost everything that could be qualified
as fantasy or sci-fi. I also like almost anything that's animated.
Wreck it Ralph if my current fav. I don't watch TV, which makes it
all the more exciting when a show like Firefly or Game of Thrones
comes around and I can catch up with the whole series like a giant
movie. Music is also all over the place. I'm listening to the
Beatles as I type this, so there's something. And I'll eat anything
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Time to do nothing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Honestly... work. But it's a good thing. My job is a surrogate
social life and I'm really passionate about being good at it. I
also really connect with my kids and share in their problems... so
I'm always pondering ways to help 150 teenagers...
Given the new house and recent conversations, I find myself
constantly reevaluating my zombie apocalypse survival plan as well.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
This is the most difficult box for me... I'm the one amongst my
friends who is always looking for ways to make things magical and
fun. Maybe this means racing all over the bay area to see who can
win the most from claw machines. Maybe it means mashing up artwork
to make anachronistic situations with dinosaurs. And then maybe
it's just catching up on books and movies I've fallen behind on.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I write songs all the time, but never let anyone hear them.
