Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If you’re actually taking the time to read it, I suppose I should
at least keep it interesting. So, here are some random facts that
might or might not actually say anything about me:
- I’ve lived abroad. I consider myself a worldly person and try not
to get too attached to any particular place, but I was still very
happy once my time outside of the US was over.
- Cleaning up my apartment when I know someone special is going to
see it soon is a ritual I very much enjoy. The right person should,
day to day, make you a better person in turn, even if the only
visible result is a cleaner kitchen.
- I question everything, and I'm never satisfied with just a
surface knowledge of things. At the same time, I find so many
things interesting that it can be hard to get far beyond the
- It bothers me how easily people follow fads, jump on to new
popular shows and artists, and generally seem so quick and happy to
conform. At the same time, I find Family Guy quotes ridiculously
funny. I’m not perfect, and neither is my system of beliefs.
- I see myself as somewhat of a man’s man, but yes, there’s a soft
spot in my heart for puppies, kittens, and children playing sports.
Some things are just too cute.
- I can touch my nose with my tongue. That might say more about my
nose than my tongue, but hey - a talent’s a talent.
Basically, I see myself as a curious and energetic person with a
mix of good and not-so-good qualities. I’m just looking for someone
who will complement my life at the same time that I compliment
her’s. If you’d like to learn more about me, you know how.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a graduate student
at UT, working
on a doctorate in government. I work in an experimental media lab
and also tutor UT athletes on the side. When I have a bit of spare
time I like to fit in something active: volleyball or the
equivalent. I love Austin and don't like the fact that once I
finish grad school I'm probably going to have to leave. Until then,
I'm trying to enjoy it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hitting 1's and slides. Ok, not really, but I'd love it if you knew
what that meant. I have a great memory for fairly pointless trivia,
if that counts for anything.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Usually that I have my head in a book - either for school, my job,
or pleasure. That, and I tend to look more serious at first glance
than I believe I actually am. Or, preferably, they're noticing me
in the middle of a game of pick up volleyball

few years, so I got into that quite a bit.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
, volleyball, sugar, my dog Helo, the internet, and
(it gives me hope for our country)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
although thats partly because of my career. I have a bit of
creative ADD as well so I'm constantly coming up with projects to
start (and invariably set aside).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing pick up volleyball at Gregory Gym at UT. Afterward,
hopefully something like poker
, hanging out with friends, etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My ultimate role model is Spock, for better or worse.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... if how upfront I've been in my responses to okcupid's questions
hasn't raised our "enemy" percentage to a frightening level. :) ...
if you like dogs, don't smoke, maintain a relative active
lifestyle, and have a genuine appreciation for dorky hobbies and
interests. Oh, you should probably enjoy (and be able to contribute
to) intelligent conversation. Lastly, if you think atheism = evil,
then I wouldn't bother.
