My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Recent surveys have agreed: I am totally splendiferously awesome times a hundred thousand percent. I hope these surveys are accurate. I fear the folks who filled them out were shamelessly bribed. By me. With brownies.

I'm into weight-lifting, walking, reading, writing, tv shows and movies, intentional community, prayer and worship, boardgames, and pen-and-paper RPG's.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have three major goals: Like C. S. Lewis, I hope to write beautiful Christian fiction; like Thomas Aquinas, I'm working on a careful and systematic metaphysical view of the world; and with God's help, I intend one day to be a strong and loving father.

Not that I necessarily plan to go from 0 to 60 (from first date to marriage) without taking time to let things grow.

I started college full-time at age fourteen --- which was an awesome decision.

Jobwise, I've now finished a Master's in theology from Duke University, and I'm well into a PhD program in philosophy at UT Austin.

Here's an example of a poem of mine:

"The Second Law of Thermodynamics"

A note within a symphony,
A word with a page.
A day within a calendar,
An hour in an age.

The finite in infinity,
A star within the sky,
One moment in eternity
To live --- and then to die.

And so will all humanity
But perish in the wind.
His history will be forgot
And never known again

If life is but biology
Or God is but a meme,
If man seeks to beget himself
And serves no greater theme.

The curtains fall. The stars burn out.
No eulogy is read.
We actors leave an empty stage:
The universe is dead.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
teaching and passionately explaining things. Games, whistling, making friends. Pursuant to that last remark, I'm great at lifting very young people (as well my 22 year-old sister!) up on my shoulders and giving them a twirl. I recently received a compliment that meant a lot to me: that I'm *very* good with kids. I know how to persevere in physical activity (say, weight-lifting or soccer) to the brink of exhaustion. I have a talent for being extremely silly (I recently wrote a song called "Funky Chicken", complete with dance steps, and performed it on camera). I can handle responsibility and spiritual leadership . . . or at least so far it seems, with God's help, that I've been able to manage. (There are so many other, better leaders to learn from and look up to!) And I like to think I'm pretty talented at being an attentive friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes, it's my Southern manners. I say "sir" and "ma'am" to my elders and I open doors for ladies.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

You're looking for someone to be a fun and loyal boyfriend and (perhaps eventually) that same sort of husband.
