My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Summarizing myself is always quite hard, but I'll try my best. I'm a knowledgeable, intelligent and genuinely caring and different 27-year-old guy. My life is currently strongly focused around becoming better in my chosen field (maths or computer science, depending on who you ask!), but at the same time, I am also seeking new and interesting people of all stripes. I have lived in about five different countries, including a stint teaching in Japan (about 1 year, 2008 to be exact) and some time living in India (a month, just like a local!). As a result, I've picked up a few different languages and perspectives on the world.
Speaking of perspectives - I'm a firm believer in a caring society and that people are the most important thing in existence. Everything I do and believe in revolves around this. I'm also a firm believer that life is there to be *enjoyed* - life is not work (unless you really love it) and it's certainly not suffering (or in my opinion, shouldn't be). As a result of this, I've done quite a bit of thinking on what I believe, but summarizing all of this here would be hard if not impossible - so ask me if you're curious!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the moment, I'm doing my Master's in Mathematical Sciences. Otherwise, I'm currently living at home, and trying my best to build up my academic credentials in pursuit of my dream to become a university professor. Which seems to currently involve a *lot* of maths!

In addition to this, I'm a part-time free software activist for the Free Software Foundation. You should check them out - they do amazing work.

At the same time, I'm also always learning and discovering new things about myself and others, and enjoy socializing with people, especially people who are interested in looking beyond the obvious and looking at things in new and interesting ways. I enjoy discussions of all sorts, and learning new things about just about everything!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I feel I'm best at intellectual pursuits - research, reading and synthesizing new information from old sources. I'm a reasonably-decent conversationalist, a good programmer, a decent historian and political theorist, but most of all, I see my strength in the fact that I care a lot about people.

I also enjoy analysis of almost anything - music, movies, TV shows, people, situations... you name it, and I wanna apply ideas and theories to it. With this in mind, I'm also a halfway-decent gamer (although more for trying than anything else!).

Last but not least, I *love* to cook! It's incredibly fun for me, brings a lot of enjoyment to people, and acts as an outlet for my creative side.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People nearly always jump at my intellect and my ability to talk about basically everything. I've been described as 'intense' by many people, and I'm usually the first one people ask anything about... well, anything, seemingly. People also tend to notice my hair (it's long and naturally curly) and my accent (which *nobody* seems to be able to place!).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books for me are usually of the non-fiction variety - specific highlights include Gideon's Spies, An Empire of Schools, Japanese Higher Education as Myth, and the Gulag Archipelago, to name but a few. However, I've read some truly inspiring fiction as well - I'm particularly fond of George Orwell's '1984' (depressing though it is), as well as any sort of story about spies or modern-day thrillers. I'm also a big fan of Thomas Harris' work - the man was a genius. However, I don't read as much as I used to - unfortunately, being a graduate student means that reading for me is work. One last thing comes to mind - Lukyanenko's 'Night Watch', which I was privileged enough to read in the original Russian.

Movies-wise, I have quite a few favourites, which often change. Things that come to mind: 'Goemon' (a very cool Japanese film), anything Chistopher Nolan (Christopher Nolan is generally-speaking a genius), the Hobbit (Peter Jackson is also good, when given a framework!), as well as most kinds of action movie. Oh yeah, *nothing* by Michael Bay - the guy's a talentless hack. I'm also a big fan of James Bond films - I've seen them all (and some more than once!). Generally-speaking, I like my films to be a bit more intelligent, though - I *loved* stuff like Inception, for example. To give some example, two films I consider amaing (though polar opposite) are Django Unchained and Mr. Nobody - *love* both, but for *very* different reasons.

TV Shows, I'm an *unashamed* HBO fan. True Blood, Game of Thrones (yay Season 4!), Boardwalk Empire (season 1, anyway), and Generation Kill in particular drew me. However, I don't stop at just HBO things - I also enjoyed Homeland, Prison Break, The Shield, Babylon 5 (my favourite TV show ever), NCIS (well, until the latest season anyway), Dexter, Burn Notice, Shameless, the Tudors (despite historical holes as big as a barge!) and the Borgias, and probably a whole bunch more I can't remember right now. I'm also an occasional anime-viewer (I find most of it far too derivative for my tastes) - recent favourites being Hellsing (the original one, not the Ultimate one), Mobile Suit Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny (very good viewing, both of them, aside from one character) and Gasaraki in particular. Yes, I love giant robots - sue me!

Music-wise, I'll listen to just about everything. I definitely have a preference for synthetic sound, and thus enjoy electro and similar genres, but I'm also an occasional metal fan, and love anything with a strong, driving rhythm. I'm also fairly into J-Pop, although that's more a guilty pleasure than anything these days. My music collection has genres ranging from dark ambient to jazz to classical - I'll listen to just about anything if it's good! Recently, I've been listening to a lot of smooth jazz - love Eric Marienthal!

When it comes to me and food, I like things spicy. Thai, Indian, Korean, whatever - as long as it has intense flavours! However, I'm entirely non-fussy - blame living like a local for a month in India! I also quite enjoy Japanese food, although not as much as I used to (blame living in Japan for that!). I'm a pescatarian these days (no meat). I love fruit and vegetables, and enjoy fish and seafood (especially raw!). I'm also a *horrible* junk food addict, which is a habit I have to break soon....
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My laptop. Seriously, my whole life is on that thing! I dunno how I'd get anything done without it.

2) My silver ring. I bought it ages ago super-cheap at a market, and it's been a permanent part of my hand ever since. I've only been parted from it twice. The first time was when I gave it to my girlfriend when she left the country (she came back after about a month). Sadly, the girlfriend is a long-time-ago ex now! The second was more recently - I went to a foam party, and it slipped off my finger and fell into the foam! Luckily, someone found it for me before it was lost forever. Yes, it means *that* much to me - sentimental value and all that.

3) Music. I *need* music in my life like I need air. A soundtrack to everything makes my life better, helps me learn and shows me the beauty of everything in a way that's hard to describe.

4) Maths. In the words of Charlie Eppes 'math is more than symbols and equations - it's logic; it's rationality; it's using your mind to solve the biggest mysteries we know'. I would also add that it's beauty, structure and art, all at once. I'm amazed it took me this long to discover how amazing it is.

5) My close friends. I know they're not objects, but without them, I wouldn't stay sane. You all know who you are - and how much you mean to me.

6) Cooking and food. I *love* to cook and learn more about foods and how they can be combined to make better foods.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Many things! I contemplate the mysteries of philosophy, history, politics, maths and computer science in roughly equal measure, but I am also interested in questions of human behaviour, comparative religion, societal behaviour and society in general, economics, biology, technology and science, space travel, science fiction... you name it, I've probably thought about it! I also always try and put them together in fun and logical ways to make sense of our beautiful world.

I also spend a lot of time thinking about beautiful and interesting women. :P
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with my close friends, either hitting the clubs (a recent re-discovery which I'm surprised I ever stopped doing) or having dinner and doing some gaming while sharing amusing in-jokes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I shave my pubic hair, and have since I was 17.
