My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am someone who likes words and ideas and dinosaurs. I talk too much. I am overly hard on myself, but more generous with others. I love pitbulls and babies, sushi and libraries. I do not love chocolate nor ice cream. I believe none of those qualities particularly matter, and yet I have included them here anyway. I can be an easy companion, especially on short hiking trails, but I'm used to my own company, and that can be difficult, I imagine.

I like ordinary people, and not so ordinary people. I am a bit of both, myself, I think.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Reading, writing, teaching, panicking, grading, and mentor-crushing on my teachers. In other words, getting a phd. And walking into it with my eyes open (no advice on the terrible job market needed, thanks).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
smiling, saying awkward things at awkward times, baking rhubarb crumble, reading, not being bored, writing poem/story things, beating myself up for not writing poem/story things, snuggling with my nephew, teaching... isn't that enough things to be really good at???
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Recent favorites include books by Junot Diaz, Penelope Fitzgerald, Michael Chabon, Alison Bechdel, and Elmore Leonard; films by Almodovar; Arrested Development and the webseries "the slope"; Jill Scott, the Staple Singers and the White Stripes; I adore Peruvian food, but restaurants rarely live up to my grandmother's cooking... I accidentally cooked a few vegan meals lately, and didn't hate myself for it. I am a committed bacon lover, however.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
affection, dialogism, craft beer, words words words.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
books, people, limitations, fears and flaws, the amazing joy my autistic brother brings me, mental disability studies, why the world can seem so obvious and so hard all at once!

The limits of empathy and the imagination. Whether I can actually commit to meditating. When the next GOT book will finally come out!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
drinking a beer, watching a movie, reading a book, talking to a friend, or sleeping in my bed!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not trying to start something, but I'm not trying to NOT start something... I'm happy with life, but I could move over and make room.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You care about something in at least a slightly unironic way...

You like to read!

Your profile does not include solo shots of your muscles, torso, or other limbs. I can't believe I've had to add that, but I have.
