My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I take pride in the fact that I have unintentionally lived in the home towns of some of my favorite NPR shows (Prairie Home Companion, Car Talk, and Wait Wait Don't Tell Me).
I'm here mostly because I am keeping myself open to the possibility of love (in either the form of friendship or romance), even though I find it difficult to connect with someone online. Chemistry can only really be experienced in person.
I have seen the word sapiosexual thrown around on this website. It sounds a bit pretentious, but it's a pretty accurate way of describing myself. Demisexual is another good term.
I would really like to change my profile name, but am too cheep to change it, and too lazy to create an entire new profile.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently getting my MA in Art Education and certification to teach K-12. I just finished student teaching this semester out in the suburbs, and will hopefully be teaching high school next Fall.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding the good in people and situations. Trusting my intuition. Seeing the big picture. Conversing at length about random philosophical stuff. Unconsciously giggling to myself at inappropriate times when I remember something funny.

I'm also moderately good at understanding and appreciating empirical research. So if that's your field, I will at least understand what you mean by a "p value" and why it's significant (does that count as a pun?).

Someone told me once that it looks like I know what I am doing all the time; do not be fooled by this...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my siblings
my body/health
new experiences
walking outside
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"What am I forgetting... I know I am forgetting something!"
What different versions of myself are like in alternate dimensions. Also along those lines, how much parts of our cultures would be different if our physical bodies or environment were slightly different (such as six fingers instead of five, or if we were cold blooded instead of warm).
The intersections between art and psychology and just visual culture in general.
My friends, family and loved ones.
Politics, playing devil's advocate.
Color - How beautiful, intriguing, fleeting and relative color is, and the science behind it. Because color is just a wave of light and light is universally fascinating.
How language - religion - culture - social roles - tradition - art - etc. are all relative and arbitrary but still imperative for living a meaningful life - and how we negotiate when these things no longer serve to add meaning to our lives.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably exhausted from my 60 hour grad school week and watching a good movie with a glass of wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It might take me a while to warm up to somebody new, but once I do I am fiercely loyal.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have managed to read my entire profile and have a filled out profile of your own for me to read.

If you don't mind hanging with a girl who is a bit nerdy, a bit of a jock, tall and artsy.

Ultimately I am looking for the yin to my yang (which according to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator would be someone with an ENFJ personality type, if you take stock into that sort of thing), which means that we don't have to love the same TV shows but have similar values and long term goals.

I hope to find someone who can push me intellectually and connect with me emotionally. I want someone who is different enough from me to complement my personality and keep things interesting, but has similar enough morals and long term goals to keep our relationship grounded. It sounds cheesy, but I am looking for someone who is a friend first, someone I can trust, respect and adore. Someone who gets my humor and is easy to talk with. Then the sexy stuff is like the frosting on top of the cake.
