Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not entirely sure what to put here, really.
I'm a pretty normal person. I have class. I have work. (Sometimes
it even pays.) I hang out with my friends from time to time. I have
a pretty snarky and ironic sense of humor, with several examples on
this very page. I listen to music ranging from the overplayed to
the how-the-fuck-did-you-even-hear-about-them? kind. I swear.
Sometimes a lot. Kraken makes me bubbly.
I can be geeky and dorky--and nerdy--quite often. Punes, or plays
on words, are my specialty. I sprinkle my conversation with
references (did you catch that one?). Sometimes ones I'm not even
aware of. I can jump from Kant to webcomics to advanced math
lightning-fast. I am, in short, the man you wish your man could
(Read on if that made you lol.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My main occupation is as a master's student in Civil Engineering at
Temple University. I have also developed my own (combinatoric, for
math geeks) models, which I occasionally receive coin for applying.
Occasionally my words make it onto blogs, for still more
Also I'm constructing mathematical things that will quite likely
redefine entire disciplines, so there's that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being introverted. Being random. Being illogical. Being
phenomenological. Laughing. Writing. Reading. Model-making.
Challenging golden calves. Being quirkily scholarly. Making my own
words up. Cooking. Eating. Getting lost in soundscapes and fantasy
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look fresh-faced for my age. When I'm doing things I love to do,
I have an intensity, a passion; trying to explain it constantly
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
A list of all of my favorite books would be approximately the
length and breadth of a library catalog. But the ones I've read
recently that I've liked have been George R.R. Martin's "A Song of
Ice and Fire" series, Jim Butcher's "Dresden Files", David Foster
Wallace's "Infinite Jest" (not that I ever actually finished that
encyclopediac monster), Hermann Hesse's "Siddhartha" and
"Steppenwolf", Sherwood Anderson's "Winesburg, Ohio", Jorge Luis
Borges' "Labyrinths", The Gospel of Thomas, Wittgenstein's
"Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus" etc etc etc...
I'm a movie-grazer. Sometimes ones I've recently seen stick in my
Shows? Elementary. Sherlock. Game of Thrones. Family Guy. Grimm.
The Walking Dead. That sorta thing.
Music? Punk, post punk, indy rock, post rock all hit my buttons
good. Radiohead, Interpol, Muse, Joy Division, The Clash, Mumford
and Sons, as examples.
For food, anything from one of several dozen cuisines ranging from
Latin America through the New and Old Worlds and Africa over into
the Far East...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. The Internet
2. My phone
3. A pint
4. A book
5. My consoles
6. I'll get back to you...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Philosophy. Ways to fix math education. Engineering stuff. Good
bands. What to eat. What I'm doing any given day. Zelda. Elder
Scrolls. Whisk(e)y, witbier, ciders, and the Kraken. Stuff. And
You should message me if

This post made you think, "Hey, he's funny" and then "wow, he's
interesting" and then "he's deep". ;)
