My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the moment, working. I'm lucky enough to work in one of the coolest places ever. I also do the occasional triathlon. Currently training for an Ironman which I'll do next summer. So, I guess you could say I spend a lot of time training for that, but it's a little tougher now that it's getting colder. I also kinda like sleeping in and drinking a lot, which really doesn't help.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Over-analyzing, laundry, making conversation with just about anyone, making fun of your current or ex-boyfriend, entertaining myself, entertaining small children, self-deprecation, flipturns, backhanded compliments, scrabble (and it's scrappy cousin, words with friends), long-winded voicemails (it's been suggested that this is actually a weakness, but I was running short of interesting talents, so I count it as a strength), having the last word.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is this an actual conversation that people have? Because I have no idea. People tend to think I look like a lot of different people. None of them have been terribly flattering.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Okay, so I used to put a lot of stock in this sort of thing. You know how some people are about horoscopes? Well, that's kind of how I was about music. Now, I wouldn't say that liking good music was the most important quality a girl could have, but it was definitely up there. And then one day I awoke to find myself dating a horrible person with fantastic musical taste, and I started to get the sneaking suspicion that maybe my musical compatibility theory was complete bullshit. It's a nice thought, and liking the same crazy stuff makes for easy conversation, but that's about it. And that's pretty much where I live now. But hey, common interests are kind of fun to talk about and I'm nothing if not thorough, so here is a (probably) meaningless list of stuff that I like:

Musically, I'm kind of obsessed with the National. Ryan Adams, the Black Keys, TV on the Radio, Manchester Orchestra, Phantogram, Interpol, The Joy Formidable, Pete Yorn, Arcade Fire, I could go on for days. Also, Jimmy Eat World is probably my all time favorite band. If you make fun of them, I will fight you.

As for TV, I love(d) Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Parks and Rec, Brooklyn 99, Firefly, Arrested Development, Deadwood, and Six Feet Under, but Justified has got to be my favorite. Raylan Givens is who I want to be when I grow up. I will also begrudgingly admit that I kind of love New Girl, which I really only started watching because I had a wicked crush on Zooey Deschanel. Now I'm kind of over her, but I still keep up with the show.

Hemingway is my favorite author (truthfully - I know a lot of people throw him out there simply because he's the most famous American author of all time, but I actually wrote a thesis on one of his short stories and would gladly give one of my kidneys to have a drink with the man), but my favorite book is The Power of One. Others include, but are not limited to: The Fighter, Heart of Darkness, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, The World According to Garp, High Fidelity and Better, by Atul Gawande. I'd also be remiss if I didn't begrudgingly admit that Harry Potter is in there somewhere. And David Sedaris, who is fun to read, but absolutely hilarious to listen to. Also, I was a little slow to warm up to Game of Thrones, but it is highly addictive (and Tyrion Lannister is totes my homeboy).

Movies are hard for me, because I love a TON of them. I guess it's pretty standard guy-movie fare: Casino Royale, Shawshank Redemption, anything with Will Ferrell, Inception, Grosse Pointe Blank, High Fidelity, Top Gun, The Dark Knight, Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, Out of Sight, Ghostbusters (Bill Murray is my spirit animal) and Tombstone. I know, not the most original. I'm a huge sucker for westerns, 80's flicks and pretty much any movie with a training montage. I've probably seen Rocky IV like 50 times.

Which brings us to food. I'm not what you would call a picky eater by any stretch. I like it all. And while I can completely respect the choice of a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, I am most definitely not one and am totally at peace with that decision. Also, I get irrationally excited when I find a new sandwich place (Fozzies, anyone?). And I love sushi.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) my iPhone (it does a bunch of stuff, most importantly, holding every song I own)
2) sandwiches (for to eat)
3) something to drive (helps me think)
4) jackets (though truthfully, I should probably include pants as well, because a guy wearing a jacket with no pants would look ridiculous.)
5) the smell of chlorine (swimming also helps me think)
6) my brother (we share a brain)

Side note: it always amuses me how many people actually put things in here like "water, air, cellular mitosis, etc." My assumption is that people do this because they think its clever, not because it's useful information. Because a) yes obviously, if you're a living creature, you need all of those things, so it must be a joke... right? b) But if it is meant to be a joke it's not really all that funny or clever, and c) if it's not a joke and you're really just looking for a way to avoid meaningfully answering the question, you could always just skip the question. I guess what I'm saying is that it doesn't really tell me anything aside from the fact that you're not dead and you have a shitty sense of humor.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
It's kind of all over the place. I guess mainly my career and how not to screw it up. Also family, friends. Lyrics of songs that I like. Soup, and how it's not really a food. Whether or not I should shave today (probably not). You know, guy stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I flat-out refuse to use emoticons or abbreviations such as "LOL," in any kind of correspondence, informal or otherwise. Unless I'm making fun of someone. Which happens a lot.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'll be honest here. I've written enough stupid introductory messages on this thing to know that writing an introductory message to a complete stranger is exhausting and awkward as hell. So here's the deal. If after everything you just read, you still think I'm worthy of a message, by all means, go ahead. I'll definitely read it, possibly enjoy it and maybe even message you back.
