My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Maybe the most telling and descriptive thing said about me in the past month is that I have a "bottomless curiosity." I'm pretty sure I know who I am, but I try not to assume. I'm extremely interested in everything that I might someday be. So, I invest in myself, in opportunities to learn, which means I listen intently, and ask leading questions openly, and despite a deeply introverted nature, I try to say yes when doors open along my way.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work on my craft, because I believe I have the talent and drive to be a success. I also try to be helpful wherever I find myself because I believe we ought to be the change we want to see in the world. I have a lot of groups of friends, that all know me from different angles, but I'm pretty sure all of them would say that I'm some kind of writer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Most of the compliments I get are about how well I explain things, or how well I describe things. These are two skills I practice a lot, both professionally and casually. I can't think of anything I was ever inherently good at. Maybe deadpan humor. Just last week, I got a "how can you say that with a straight face." In a non-creepy way. The person was laughing, I promise.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a large human being. My shoulders reach out for opposing sides of most doors, and the top of my head flirts with the overhang.

I get a lot of "whoas" and "wows." I have a delayed handshake and a careful manner of speaking. I walk slow, but I like to think that I think fast enough to compensate.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books, The Black Company, by Glen Cook and A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest Gaines. Also, The Dragon Can't Dance by Earl Lovelace is full of such excellent prose that I really considered giving up being a writer and doing something else.

For music, I could say that I like rap and hip-hop, or that I love it, but I think it would be more true to say that such music speaks to my perspective. I grew up on 2Pac and Nas, Outkast in high school, Kanye in college. I am very optimistic about the future of the genre, with artists like J Cole and Kendrick Lamar and Big K.R.I.T. alive and well. What I will say is that I have a fluctuating list of Pandora stations. I've yet to hear anything that I wouldn't listen to.

Movie taste fluctuates by the year and changes with my worsening memory. Megamind. Nacho Libre. I will also almost always watch something adapted from a comic book.

For television, I'm currently watching the Originals, and the Flash, Constantine, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Gotham and the Daily Show. I also watch anime, too, but haven't gotten around to reading manga.

Strangely, I've yet to find a combination of chicken and rice that I haven't liked. But if I had to give it an order then it starts with Mexican, with Chinese tying for second with something I've yet to decide. I've also developed an appreciation for Thai and Italian is always a favorite.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Stories. Those are good. Practically speaking, having a car in this city is pretty convenient. The internet is good, too. Water. Sleep. Food (see previous question's answer).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
He laughed when he said it, but a different close friend indicted me when he said, "You can't turn it off, can you?" in reference to my brain. He had made a statement on a Monday, and when next we saw each other that Thursday, the idea had swelled on my end, and become festooned with voluminous detail.

I'll amend the statement to "I spend a lot of time thinking."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Game night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"I wanna fly
Can you take me far away,
Give me a star to reach for,
Tell me what it takes
And I'll go so high,
I'll go so high my feet won't touch the ground
Cause it's my wings
That pull the strings,
I bought these dreams
That all fall down."
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you think we'd get along, have complimentary souls, or resonant minds.

I read an interesting article recently, on happiness and life partnership. I think it brings up some very interesting points.
