My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
1) Information junkie -- when I'm sitting I have a book or a laptop, when I'm running I have a podcast, when it's quiet I'm reading.

2) Conversationalist - a mile a minute and I want to know what you think about everything I'm blabbing on about, too.

3) Enthusiast - There are very few things that bore me.

4) Busy - I love my work...and it sucks up a fair amount of my time. I love my friends...and I like to see them often. Doesn't leave me with barely enough time to sleep - so to speak.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Teaching and learning about history, government, politics, and the Constitution with the most talented, intelligent, rockin-est kids in Richmond. I do as much learning as I do teaching just to keep up with them sometimes.

Volunteering for political campaigns or community organizations, or trying to fit in some exercise, in my free time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning, speaking, writing, thinking, analyzing, and expressing. Ain't too bad at empathizing, hoping, and giggling, either.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apparently the first impression is either: a) well-spoken or b) quiet.

I guess it depends which context people are meeting me in which it ends up on.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read more magazines and newspapers than books these days -- The Atlantic, Mother Jones, The Guardian, NYTimes, National Review.

When I get the time to read, fictionwise, I love Murakami, Stanislaw Lem, William Gibson, Ian Banks, Neal Stephenson, and the occasional junky scifi novel. Oh, and Tintin books. Lots of Tintin.

Musically, I'd love to go to a cello recital with you at VMFA in the afternoon, then change for a good old headbang with Red Fang or something.

I love to cook and am quite good at it -- I make fine mjeddrah, jerk tofu, southern-style collards, pesto grilled cheese sandwiches, and even black bean burritos.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Books, or at least the written word.
2. Discussion partners.
3. Food tasters.
4. The promise of change.
5. Enthusiasm + effusiveness.
6. At least a walk a day, better yet a run.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
James Madison
Chinese philosophy
John Rawls and Ian Shapiro
And, let's be honest, since we're all human and science shows it to be true:
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking a delicious meal? Playing a board game with friends? Maybe a concert?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I know that no one really knows themselves, not even me.

Also I once walked two miles through a city in Northern China on New Years Day singing, alone, and drunk.
