My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Multifaceted (yet currently somewhat one-dimensional) and well-read ex-slacker seeks warm body and brains for algorithmic exercises disguised as board games, lets-see-who-can-eat-more-sushi contests, and philosophical pillow talk.

Let's go rock climbing.

Actually let's not; that sounds horrible!!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After slinging coffee for the better part of a decade and a half, I decided that - although the barista life is quite glamorous indeed - perhaps there was more to life than pouring rosettas and choking back bile (figuratively due to be-poloed dumdums and literally due to my body's increasing rejection of awful and ubiquitous Macrina pastries).

So now I'm an undergrad in the Computer Science at UW.

Not a brogrammer. Honest.

For summer work I'm working for the UW Linguistics department helping to develop software that listens to a person's speech and attempts to determine their stance on the topic in question. Are they an expert? Confident? Hiding something?

I have recently started taking Lindy Hop lessons, and am completely hooked. I am nowhere close to awesome - but I'm hoping to be good enough by the end of the summer to go out dancing all the time. If you happen to dance and are looking for a practice partner, we should meet up!

What about the future? Here's a partial sampling of my post-graduation bucket list; ahem:
(1) Relentlessly smack every middle-school administrator in the country until we get discrete math into our junior high school curricula.
(2) Write a bunch of nonsensical pornography in Latin and anonymously mail it to my professors (a sample: Ea pastillum sub testiculos coniugis posuit et tabulam suarum mammarum ad cattum per telecopiam misit.)
(3) Determine whether the board game 'Ora et Labora' is solvable (NOTE: I am probably not smart enough to actually accomplish this)
(4) Learn how to make sushi for myself and my friends so that I am not broke all the time from eating at sushi restaurants every single night and also so that I will be even more popular than I already am.
(5) Go as long as possible without ever finding out what 'twerking' means.
(6) Read 'The Trial' (I've started it 6 times now but something always comes up and I have to start over)
(7) OK seriously? Aggressively expand Computer Science programs in Washington state - targeting high schools and community colleges in particular.
(8) Eat an entire red velvet cake in one sitting.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my voice. People frequently ask if I've done radio work (yes - and was even in a video game!). Also - despite what the studies say - I can often make a "bad shirt" look like a "good shirt".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This seems like a great sixth date conversation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...which of the following tired OKC profile fads is the bigger turn-off:
(a) "living life to the fullest"
(b) proclaiming your love for the oxford comma
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I stand in front of my bathroom mirror and pretend I'm Keith Emerson.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think that going to watch a show entitled 'Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction' doesn't seem like a terrible idea.

You think that 'The Settlers of Catan' is a horrible board game and want to discuss how much you hate it, while indulging in superior pastimes of the genre.

You would not describe yourself as "scabby".

You are career-focused, but are still intrigued at the notion of creating a (small) army of awesome, brilliant rugrats.

I place a very high premium on clear, unambiguous communication. If you are flaky or think it's fun to send mixed signals, please stay as far away from me as humanly possible.

If you have cultivated a voiceless alveolar affricate into your speech patterns, or are a loud chewer, we are NOT going to get along and I'm dead serious.
