My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
With only half a screw inside my ankle, I'm only half screwed! Also means that for the short foreseeable future I will not be winning any foot races. Though I'm not quite sure I was gonna be winning any before either...

Aside from that you'll find me cooking, eating, exercising my ankle and body, programming, and one of the following three given season and/or conditions: snowboarding, downhill mountain biking, motorcycling
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Paying my bills each month? How? In a way that apparently coincides with my education.

All that and attempting not to hurt myself with more reading and writing, while becoming more learned in mountain biking. Or some combination of subject, object, and verb of the previous statement, hehe. Reading aloud to a cat isn't as rewarding as I thought it would be... would probably be more fun to read to someone else.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not being a judgemental person and recognizing that everyone has their own interpretation of how the world would be a better place.

I would like to say philosophy, but actually I'm better at cooking. Though I do try to read as much as I can.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

Food: I don't think there is a food I haven't tried and liked to some degree or more. And I usually have tried to recreate it to better understand the devotion/love needed for some of those dishes. Plus, it's really really fun to make food that entertains me in making it as much as eating it.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Access to information (smart phone, computer, etc. And the fact it makes the world a better place if you're optimistic about it, plus it is my work too though I'm not defined by my work as it merely shapes me)
My health (getting outside on one of my toys or swimming)
My friends (to keep me mostly sane and to practice my cooking on)
Goals (the ideas and thoughts and purposes)
Downtime (we all have our own battery, mines the extroverted introvert)
Life (that is pretty essential, and all that goes with it)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How the phrase if you never start, you'll never finish applies to so many facets of my life, in my career, and in my emotional well being.

And how to create a system to leave the world a better place through collective action for social responsibility
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have high hopes of teaching my cat to sing "This Place Is A prison" by The Postal Service. And I'd swear he is catching onto it and thwarting my attempts.

Actually I will likely be finding somewhere to ride my motorcycle with my friends. Late at night, out of sight of ankle crushing minivans. And then ending up finding some place to eat in this great city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've already forgotten the pain from my first surgery 7 months ago, and my second surgery a month ago. Both for my ankle, which scares me as I wonder what else I have forgotten.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're serious about friendship, and long term relationships. Kindness has many definitions, from being nice to being able to call the other out on anything.

And you want to enjoy life and all it has to offer with someone special in your life.
