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.
It's grad school app season, so I'm taking a break from writing to write. When I'm done with that, I'll go back to writing. Almost purely by accident, I secure a livable wage with part time jobs in education.
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 every inherently good at. Maybe deadpan humor.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A conversation I had with a co-worker recently:

"I don't know why people are always telling me things," she said.

"It's because your facial expression demands answers," I said. "You present as a question mark. I'm more of a period."

"You know, you really are."

And if you read the stats, I am a fairly large human being.
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.

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

For television, I like thoughtful things like Fringe and funny things like 30 Rock and inspiring things like Glee. And recently, British things like Luther. I also watch anime, 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?
Used to be game night. Now, I'm back to looking for something fun and/or interesting to do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an honest man, and everything I've said here is true.

And in the spirit of openness, I am the gamer sort of nerd. I enjoy science fiction and video games, and am drawn to types that enjoy those things, too.
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.
