My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a philosopher in the oldest sense of the word, that is to say, I love learning. I spend most days trying to take in as much knowledge as I can from any source that I can manage, and that (I think) is a pretty decent summary of who I am.

Also, and this is pretty important to note, while I'm probably a bit too wordy with my writing (and I admit that I tend to ramble), I'm not like this in person. Promise.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work part-time and go to school full time. I want to get my Associates in Computer Science and then a Bachelor's in Game Design within the next 3 years. I also want a Mastiff/St. Bernard/Newfoundland named Brutus/Rufus. This is almost as important as a college degree for me.

I also do wood carving, and hope to eventually make my own shitty furniture.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing, impersonating Jack Black, and impersonating Jack Black's singing when the situation allows.

I spent a lot of time in the past fronting bands, and after high school I got into a music school to pursue further vocal training. My goals and plans eventually shifted, but at the very least I've been groomed to have an exceptional karaoke voice.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard. It's soft, a bit curly, and it changes colors depending on the state of the sun. When old ladies walk up to you, pet and compliment your beard, and saunter off into the sunset you know either you're doing something right or those old ladies are hiiiiiiiiiiiiigh. One of the two, there is no middle ground here.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Film
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is one of my go-to feels movies. I absolutely love it. Oldboy (the original Korean movie, not the Spike Lee travesty) is another favourite. Dark, but beautifully shot and told. Other top picks range from The Artist to Hot Rod.

TV
Game of Thrones is hands down my favourite show on television. Another HBO series, True Detective is right behind it. That Mitchell and Webb Look is funnier than Gouda.

Authors
Pretty much anything ever written by Kurt Vonnegut is amazing. I spent two months working at a Polish sandwich shop where all I did was read everything Vonnegut ever wrote for 9 hours a day...it was a dark yet enlightening time for me. Other favourites include Fyodor Dostoevsky and George R. R. Martin, the former I forgive for his long rants about religion and the latter I forgive for his awkwardly detailed sex scenes. Right now I'm systematically listening to every Terry Pratchett audio book ever made, and loving every second of it.

Foodstuffs
Pulled pork/carnitas are amazing. I make them from time to time with my crock-pot. Also, oddly enough, I like Brussels sprouts. Cut them in half, stick them on a cookie tray, lather with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake them. So good. Final fun food fact: pecan crust pumpkin pie will blow your mind.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My bike
I have a bad history with cars and accidents that may or may not involve blocking four lanes on 680 during morning rush hour. My bike helps me get around that.

2. Routine
Kind of. It's not as boring as it sounds, really. I like mixing things up, I just really like getting myself into the right frame of mind to do certain things. Case in point, I get to work an hour and a half early so I can grab a coffee and read my emails/reddit/watch my Youtube subscriptions. It gets me mentally prepped for the day.

3. My Youtube Subscriptions
I love them. I use Youtube as a way to learn more about the world, to dive deeper into the things I'm most passionate about, and to boldly view more pet-related adorable videos than my forefathers dared to even dream.

4. My forefathers
Thanks for the assist, homies.

5. A kick in the ass
Look, I'm a motivated individual, really. I just tend to be more motivated about things that are right in front of my face, long-term consequences be damned. Sometimes I just need a good kick in the ass to get me re-focused.

6. Conditioner
This beard doesn't stay soft by itself. Conditioner goes in, and the world reaps the benefits.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Recently? I spend a lot of time thinking about linguistics and rhetoric, and how much they matter in our day to day lives. I think about what it means to be an ethical person, what it means to know something, what truth is and how you can possibly determine whether something is true. Furthermore, is telling the truth an inherently good act, or are there situations where it'd be unethical? And wouldn't Schindler's List be 5 times better if it starred Donald Glover instead of Liam Neeson?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ideally I'm in Berkeley having a beer and playing some seemingly-random-but-probably-European board game (games in this category include such classics as Settlers of Catan and That-Game-Where-Everyone-Builds-A-Farm-Together). After a couple hours and much tearing of hair we head to the nearest delicious restaurant (of which there are many) and eat [Insert Delicious Foodstuffs] over conversations that, while on the whole quite chipper and fun, seem to steadily steer themselves towards darker comedic tones and topics until properly corrected by [Insert Socially Responsible Person].

Then it's off to karaoke, and I get roped into a duet I only kinda-sorta know the words/melody to which doesn't seem to embarrass me too much because, at the end of the day, nobody gives a shit. It's a grand old time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Back in high school I started spelling "favorite" "favourite" to piss off my English teacher...and now I default to it. Something I'm sure you're already noticed.

I tend to forget that I'm in public and break out into song on occasion...and then get really embarrassed about it.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want to teach me anything new. I love learning for learning's sake, as long as the lesson doesn't represent a clear and present danger to myself or parts of myself that I'd really miss.

If you want to get four other people together to play the Game of Thrones board game. So much fun. (Disclaimer: the first game will take 4 hours. Be mentally and physically prepared.) (Double Disclaimer: Really, though. It's intense.)

If you are confused about whether or not I am in fact a duck. While I assure you I am most certainly not, I understand that some of you may not take me at my word. I will do my best to allay your suspicions.
