My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Literature-oriented, passionate about what matters. Sensitive without the tearing up, creative without the artsi-fartsiness, confident without the braggadocio. A man without the piggery, a [former] clotheshorse without the foppery.

In terms of physical activity, I tend to like the kinds built on fluid, repetitive action. I rowed in college, have been doing tai-chi for the past few years, and bicycling sometimes. The only exception to this is soccer, which I primordially like (watching) and which has to do with having been born in another country. Then there is yoga, but I don't consider it an "activity" per se.

I am indulgent, fluent, and concentrated.
