My name is Matt, I am from Marquette MI. My best buddy is my dog. I
often picture myself in a Mad Max: Road Warrior style future with
her at my side. Then I remember how easily she is distracted by
snacks, and how she would abandon me for the very bandits that have
come to kill me and steal my gas. I have a very active imagination.
A few times a year I like to drink a beer and watch hockey, for
spiritual reasons. I am an honest, reasonable and friendly person.
I sometimes break into the Queen's English. I have a strange sense
of humor, ranging from morbid to childish.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently a chemistry PhD student at Michigan Tech. That means
I take classes, do research and teach other classes. It's the
equivalent of a full time job, 9-6 most days. I am studying
atmospheric chemistry. I want to work in a research laboratory
studying problems like global climate change. I am a fairly busy
person, but I still find plenty of time to goof off.
I’m really good at
I don't really know what I'm "good" at. I like to stay organized,
even though sometimes the method is "piles of stuff." I like to
make people laugh, and I try often, but sometimes I can nail a joke
and sometimes I'm the only one laughing. I like to cook, and
like-less to do dishes. People say I'm smart but I don't really see
it. I study A LOT, and I usually walk right passed where I parked
The first things people usually notice about me
People think I am shy, but I tend to just mind my own business.
Maybe I am shy, I don't know if there is a difference. I wear
glasses and have a perpetual semi-bad hair day. I don't shave very
often, but I keep it to short stubble usually.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like a lot of movies, TV and books: Futurama, Breaking Bad,
Supernatural, the Simpsons, nearly everything Batman, Back to the
Future, and Ghostbusters off the top of my head. I recently started
reading the Dark Tower series and I am really enjoying that. After
years of abuse, I have called it off with Star Wars. I just don't
know what she is trying to do anymore.
I like classic rock bands, like Queen, Bon Jovi, ACDC, Boston, Guns
n Roses, and Journey. Most days on my way to work I blast Don't
Stop Believin'. Yes I sing along; no, I don't sing very well.
I like a lot of different food, and I'm not very picky. Most things
new I'll at least try a bite. I'm a sucker for a good Chinese
buffet, and I like spicy stuff. I had a phase where I put the
Sriracha rooster sauce on nearly everything.
The six things I could never do without
Setting aside basic necessities, like water and shelter...
2) Scientific Calculator
3) My Pocket Knife
4) Hot Showers
5) Peanut Butter
6) Scrap Paper to Make Millions of Notes on
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Trillions and trillions of atoms all twirling in asymmetrical
unison inside every square millimeter of everything I look at. I am
I also think of anything funny I've ever heard, which often makes
me look like a snickering idiot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Grocery shopping, doing laundry and being CRAZY by staying up
passed 10pm. Ladies please, form an orderly line.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had my first kiss at the embarrassingly old age of 19.
You should message me if
You have interest in me! I don't think anything is off limits in
conversation, so if you are curious just ask away.
