My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a 22-year-old Texan, raised in Yorkshire, living in London. I'm a year out from graduation and hunting for a job in politics or journalism.

In my free time I go for walks around London, I read a lot (philosophy and short fiction, mostly, especially Latin American fiction), I practise tai chi, I keep up with politics and I argue with people on the internet. Some of my hobbies are more productive than others.
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 almost overwhelmed with options. Once I've settled on a particular career direction, I'll fill this bit in some more. In general, I'm looking for a good short-term job to help me save up for graduate school.

I'm going to write - probably about politics, probably as part of a consultancy or newspaper or blogroll. I have a lot of interests, and choosing which of them to pursue is almost as challenging as actually pursuing them.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking at unwelcome length about literature and philosophy, listening to people talk about literature and philosophy, cracking wry jokes (some of which are even funny) and being interested in people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My accent. Born in Texas, raised in Yorkshire, living in London. Yeah.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oh, goodness. Here we go -

Books:

Anything by Bolano, particularly Savage Detectives. He died too young.

Some, but not all, of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Autumn of the Patriarch is my favourite, Hundred Years of Solitude isn't bad.

The Difference Engine, by Sterling and Gibson. The original (and best) steampunk novel.

Lord of Light, by Roger Zelazny, and anything by Iain Banks. These two convinced me that science fiction was worth my time, and I've never looked back.

We Need To Talk About Kevin, by Lionel Shriver. Shriver's as interesting in person as she is in writing, and WNTTAK is probably her best book.

I could go on, but those give a pretty good sketch of my reading interests.

Movies:

I don't watch a lot of films. That's not out of principle; I just don't have a lot of time to go to the cinema, and I don't watch a whole lot of TV. I thought Inception was pretty solid, and The Princess Bride is the most quotable thing I've ever seen.

Music:

Rage Against The Machine, A Perfect Circle, E Nomine. My music tastes are fragmented and niche, but I'm not a snob about it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Internet access. So many of my interests and hobbies depend on this, as does the constant stream of information I need if I'm going to be involved in politics.

2) Books. Sometimes you can't take the internet with you, and there's something irreplaceable about holding a good solid book in your hands.

3) Decent food. I'm not a massive food snob, but I do appreciate good food.

4) Conversation. There's no use having interests if there's no-one to share them with.

5) Friends. I don't make friends easily, so I value my friendships a great deal.

6) London. I'm not tired of it yet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Olives. Also cheese.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Blogging, writing or arguing frantically before getting ready to go out to London with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love genre sci-fi so damned much.
