My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm in Austin for grad school in English [insert joke about lack of job prospects here]. I love the city, even if I spend most of my time in coffee shops annoying the other patrons by spreading library books across a multi-person table.

Because I spend too much of my life trying to come up with elegant sentences and coherent transitions as it is, I present the rest of my self-summary as a list, bullet-pointed for your convenience:

-I have a non-ironic soft spot for ridiculous activities, like rollerskating.
-I really love terrible movies.
-Enjoying nightlife is an art that I have yet to learn.
-I have a little "garden" of potted plants on my balcony that my more elderly neighbors really seem to appreciate.
-My elderly neighbors are awesome.
-I read too much.
-I'm a cat person.
-But my roommate's cat ate my headphones.
-I'm really bad at making lists about myself. This was probably a mistake.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
An English PhD. And yes, I fully expect that in ten years I will be living in a box. But I will be holding the most beautifully-phrased cardboard sign you've ever seen.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
cooking. It's a wonderfully useful hobby, particularly because I'm also quite good at eating.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I brought dessert.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I prefer the classics: Harry Potter, Discworld, Good Omens, and A Song of Ice and Fire. Oh wait, I'm supposed to be literary? Okay then, err... I maintain that Jane Austen is hilarious and brilliant. And I bow down before Louise Erdrich and Toni Morrison.

Movies: Abraxas: Guardian of the Universe, starring the multi-talented and oft-underclothed former governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura. Also, LOTR, Pan's Labyrinth, and ponderous, hyper-realist films where all the good characters die at the end.

Shows: Sherlock, Firefly, Globe Trekker, Father Ted, MST3K, Parks and Rec, Community, Downton Abbey. I'm now making up for the fact that I only had 4 channels growing up. Although, in fairness, one of those channels regularly aired Wishbone and Reading Rainbow, which is more than I can say for Netflix.

Music: I'm self-conscious about my utter lack of taste in music, especially since I moved to Austin. But I would overall consider my taste to be faux-hipster. I like most indie/folky bands only once they've become popular enough to not be cool anymore.

Food: Anything and everything. I love trying new foods and food styles, either at a restaurant (or food trailer, this being Austin) or in the kitchen.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A decent book/show/movie
Morning coffee
My laptop
My running shoes
Wisconsin cheese

(oh, and, y'know, family and friends and such, just in case they're watching.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to be a better person. But it usually gives me a headache.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Grabbing beers with friends, who will make me sit outside despite the fact that it is 90 degrees at 10:00 p.m. (Seriously, why are people so eager to abandon air conditioning once the sun goes down?)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I kind of wish okcupid could format footnotes.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have fun ideas for things to do in Austin.
You've seen Father Ted.
You hate first dates that end up sounding like job interviews (this does happen to other people too, right?)
