My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I study the history of language, among other things, which means I hope to be reading (if not speaking) in at least two dozen or so before I die.

Currently in the dissertation phase of my PhD program (ABD). But a career doesn't make for a snuggling partner. Nor does it make for a good sky-diving partner. Not that I'm a sky-diver. Yet.

I travelled to new places weekly for most of my 20s. Yet there are many places I still want visit.

I do the regular sorts of things that people do to stay fit and social. Back in Virginia, I had a great group of friends that I got together with a few times a month for this or that. I'm starting to cultivate friendships here as well.

I vote liberal, but any group can have low moments. I believe a government has a responsibility to provide a safe, clean, just infrastructure for its people; sometimes that includes social programs for helping people out of self-perpetuating economically depressed situations, and regulation of monetary giants, stuff like that.

I'm also an artist. You can see a few of my pieces here:

I also write music from time to time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am completing a PhD program, returning to Virginia after living in India for a year, and writing my dissertation.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making sense out of abstruse philosophical reasoning,
Boiling insanity down into sensible solutions,
Making art,
Making jokes on the fly,
Seeing in 4D.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Old Friends
Unsullied Nature
Promising Career
Novel, Hearty Foods
Routine Schedule
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The basic human experience of Time, and the art of relating that to the history of human conflicts and resolutions.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
somewhere in the world, doing something. It's inevitable, and happens every single Friday without fail.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm actually a bit of a private person. Also, I am convinced that the compatibility algorithms used by this site are complete bullshit. I almost always find my so-called enemies deeply fascinating.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think that people are more interesting in person than via web.

You don't believe that a personality test "determines" compatibility.

You prize patience over passion, and passion over lethargy.

You don't practice self-loathing.

You have standards. Because I do.
