My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy meeting new people, trying new things, and exploring new places--you know, standard twenty-something stuff. I'm a big fan of drinking games and thinking games, long conversations, offbeat menu items, and random road trips. Bars are cool. Clubs can be. Lively music is fun live, but mellower stuff tends to be iPod-only. When it comes to books and movies, I tend towards escapism--the historical, the Sci-Fi, the international, the fantasy, the surreal, or the just plain old.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just picked up my Physics degree, and I've been working as an engineer since last January.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've heard people say that I'm a good listener. I guess that's a talent.

I guess I'm a pretty fun running partner, too. I hate running by itself, so I always try to make my runs interesting. This occasionally involves outrunning mall security guards on Segways (they have trouble with the escalators), racing gangs of small children on bikes, and swimming.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Buick - I feel trapped if I don't have access to my own car.

HBO - I cut off my cable last summer, and filled the video void in my life with Youtube and my parents' HBO-GO subscription. Accordingly, essentially all of my favorite shows are HBO series.
(2014 Update: I've added a few favorite shows, and acquired cable and Netflix. New #2 coming soon.)

Perpendicular Parking - I never felt like learning to parallel park properly. Even when I lived in the city I mostly shopped in the suburbs.

Variety - So this "thing" is pretty cheesy, but routine depresses me.

*sigh*...Coffee. This would be a pretty dishonest list if I didn't include my #1 chemical dependency.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My life, my work, my future, the fact that I spend too much time thinking about my life, my work and my future.

Also politics, technology, history, outer space, the cult of Apple, that cliche but awesome four month European adventure that everyone except me apparently embarked upon during college...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't think that I have a typical Friday night anymore, given my recent city-change. I'd start my typical Friday night in college by meeting a group of friends at a bar or house party. With any luck, the night would eventually spiral into a crazy adventure through some Baltimore neighborhood, optimally ending on some rooftop or balcony that offered a view of the Baltimore City skyline.

I've since set out to find a new typical Friday, and I know that that Friday will be profoundly shaped by the new people that I meet in the Boston area. In general--on Friday nights--I tend to enjoy good conversations and/or beer, wherever they happen to be.
