My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Disclaimer: I'm moving to Houston this summer (somewhere around late June). I'm on here to start establishing friendships and meet some new people in a city I haven't really lived in in a decade.

I grew up in Houston and now I'm moving back. The last several years have been spent in graduate school and teaching in Massachusetts and North Carolina. However, I need to finish my dissertation, and a full time teaching job (in a place with no research-oriented libraries) is not allowing that to happen.

In terms of personality, I'm an odd mixture of quiet and loud: I like going out (especially to art openings, etc., but I greatly value my alone time. I can be dressed to the nines one day, and the next I won't even get out of my pajamas (unless I'm going out of my house of course!).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently, I'm in the dissertation phase of my PhD--basically, I'm writing a non-fiction book about the string music of a little-known Italian composer. It's a lot of work, but it's very rewarding. Fair warning, if you ask me about it, I will talk incessantly. That said, I am also perfectly happy to listen to you talk about whatever gets your juices flowing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I sound like an old lady, but crocheting. I do a lot of scarfs and blankets for charity in my spare time--my job doesn't involve producing anything tangible, so crocheting is my outlet for that.

Also, learning to translate (not necessarily speak, read, and write) languages. As long as I have a cheat sheet for the basic sentence structures of a language (and a dictionary), I can be translating in a matter of days.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think it's probably my hair--a giant, orange fuzz ball. After that, it's probably my laugh. Both make me easy to find in large crowds.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anything about music, short stories, some poetry by friends. Sherlock Holmes is a constant favorite, as is Agatha Christie. (I have the literary tastes of an 85-year-old British woman). I just read The Time Machine by H.G. Wells, and I'm putting the rest of his books on my summer reading list.

Movies: Not really into them - though I'd like to start watching them more. Lately I've been getting into anything involving Quentin Tarantino and a lot of the older movies on Netflix.

Shows: most things British, Mythbusters, Top Gear, Nova Science Now, Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking, lately the old Sherlock Holmes--the Ronald Howard series, and a lot of documentaries. To summarize: shenanigans, more shenanigans, science and information.

Music: I have at least one artist I listen to in every genre, but I'm not the biggest fan of contemporary country or contemporary rap or hip-hop.

Food: I'll try just about anything once. I am very inclined towards Thai food, Sushi, and Scotch (though not at the same time).

Also, I love art--my aunt is an artist, I have tons of other friends who are visual artists, and my family owns an art gallery. I am the person that goes through every exhibit, from Pre-Columbian art up to the piece painted yesterday.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I can arguably do without anything for some amount of time, but six things I'd prefer to never leave behind are:

1) Books--preferably a library.
2) Paper--how else will I write down my thoughts about the books?
3) Humor
4) Communication--I'll even go back to letters, but I have to be able to communicate with people somehow.
5) Animals--domesticated or wild, preferably both.
6) People--though I might be able to survive limited amounts of this with more of #5.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Music, my research (which is also music but somehow I feel the need to list it separately), how to hone my writing skills so I sound pompous enough to get my degree, which/whose interpretation of Sherlock Holmes I like the best...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm probably doing something, or I'm doing nothing. It's usually one of the two, but some options include: dinner/drinks with friends, art opening, at my house in pajamas, at my best friends house in yoga pants playing Cribbage or Cards Against Humanity
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My friends used to have to tell me when a person in the pub was hitting on me because I never figured it out in a reasonable amount of time. They actually used to kick me under the table/bar, and we all got a good laugh out of it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to know more about me, you think we'd get along, you'd like to grab a beer/coffee/wine--any of the normal reasons you'd message someone, really.
