My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*** Note: I'm in the process of wrapping up my last semester and moving to Baltimore (in May). Apologies if I reply slowly. Because of the impending move, I'm really only interested in something casual over the next few months. If you're open to something like that, feel free to message me, but I can't in good conscience entertain anything long-term. ***

Moved to the Boston area from the South a year ago. I'm a full-time student, I love to read, spend time with friends, and check out live music. I'm intense, weird, loyal, and genuine.

I'm looking for someone with whom I can trade sarcastic banter, be unashamedly nerdy, and explore the city.

For what it's worth, I'm an INFJ.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Grad school; so, reading, arguing, and absorbing way too much caffeine at pretty much all hours.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading and walking at the same time. I rarely bump into things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lolita, A Confederacy of Dunces, This Side of Paradise, Invisible Man, and pretty much anything by Gene Wolfe or Neil Gaiman. I'm currently forcing myself to read Infinite Jest in between schoolwork.

Anything by Wes Anderson and Joss Whedon. Labyrinth. A Goofy Movie. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. So, the classics.

Arrested Development, It's Always Sunny, and Firefly. I'll shamelessly admit to loving New Girl, because Schmidt.

I mostly like jazz, motown, and kitschy stuff from the 90's. I'm currently on a bluegrass kick, so if you like Chris Thile or Crooked Still, let's talk about how awesome they are.

Thai food and southern comfort food. Any time, any day. Good IPAs, scotch, bourbon, or wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nope. Instead, I offer you fun facts:

I lived overseas for 6 years in middle/high school.

I have a Calvin and Hobbes tattoo.

I teach at an academic/gifted education summer camp and it's my favorite place in the world. I've worked there for 6 years now.

"Roll tide" is part of my normal, everyday parlance. This is nonnegotiable.

Charlie Kelly from It's Always Sunny is my spirit animal.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're interested in having adventures,
You have a good sense of humor and don't take yourself too seriously,
You like banter and sarcasm (and can handle snark), but are genuine at heart
You're passionate about whatever it is you do, and appreciate that in a partner
