My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
By the standards of our cynical, jaded era, I like to think I'm a pretty earnest person. I like good things. I dislike bad things.

I returned from Korea in Dec, 2011, where I'd been teaching English to Elementary school students for the past two years. Before I went there, I thought I didn't like children. I've since decided that I don't like American children. (Longstanding thesis, yet to be disproven: children meet most clinical criteria for sociopathology. We just forgive them because they're cute.) But, less cynically, I loved my job, I loved my kids, and I think teaching is fun.

I studied philosophy (20th century Continental if you care.) I like reading. I also like fun things. I consider conversation and argument fun things. Drinking too. Those last three things work particularly well together, except when they don't.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm now studying for my Masters in IR. I'm just getting started, and looking forward to it. I'm aiming for an eventual career in academia. Hopefully teaching with a side of policy analysis.

Also, sometime when I wasn't looking, my ineptitude with social media transformed from a badge of honor to a career liability. I really don't like that about our world, right now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Banal bourgeois small talk. Try me sometime. I'll impress the pants off your rich aunt.

I'm also very good at argument. Not winning arguments, but having productive, good-natured and satisfying arguments. I am not friends with people who only agree with me.
The first things people usually notice about me

Jew.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Infinite Jest, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Neuromancer, Anna Karenina, Underworld, Nine Stories, Freedom, Pale Fire, Moby Dick, 2666, Blood Meridian, Godel Escher Bach, Against the Day. I like Letham a lot, but his books are all too flawed to list one as a favorite. I also adore Murakami even though I don't think he writes particularly good books. I like to talk about this.

I read a lot in that general clique: Pynchon, DeLillo, Letham, Chabon, Franzen, etc. If you like them, please message me books I should read.

The only movies that are worth seeing in theater these days (other than the Coens' films, of course) are kids movies. Discuss.

I was an enthusiastic pescatarian before moving to Korea. My reasons were always unrelated to the taste of meat, which is undeniably delicious. However, the Korean diet is, like, 97% pork belly, so I stopped. I'm finding it difficult to go back. I will, soon. I promise.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I, like most people, am an animal. Consequently, I like to think that I could do without any given thing in my life if it came to it. I'd miss people. And books. People more, though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
We live in the future. This is weird.

My friends actually call me Guizot. That's been true for about 12 years. I hate it.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I like meeting people who are smart and passionate, full stop. About what matters less, but I tend to get along with people who are involved in the arts, politics, or academia.
