Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I live an active, busy life and overbook myself intentionally. My
friends tell me to relax once in a while - I don't listen.
The outdoors and electronics are my major interests. Because those
two things totally go together. But hey, programming sometimes and
mountain biking other times makes for an interesting
Psychology is fun to think about and though the major tests are all
pretty much worthless, they're pretty fun as well. So that being
said, I'm an INTJ, which makes me naturally awesome at anything
involving logic, strategy, and planning. And naturally terrible at
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work during the day and seriously enjoy biking, running, and
frisbee afterwards. Skydiving and learning to use a squirrel suit
are on the bucket list. My roomates and I just went skiing in
Colorado and are planning a return trip next winter - it's easily
the most fun I've ever had!
In the other bits of free time I have, I'm building a bottle cap
table, putting together a 3000-piece 3D puzzle, playing board
games, running, and being a Royals fan in the middle of "Cardinal
Nation." Which is rough. #firstworldproblems
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
programming, Ultimate Frisbee, skiing, climbing, avoiding terrible
watery beer (I'm looking at you Budweiser, Miller, and Coors), and
stealing (then poorly re-telling) jokes.
And being different. It's just no fun to be "normal" when you can
dance to the beat of your own drum. On that note though, I am in no
way good at dancing or singing. I have all the musical talent of a
Big Mouth Billy Bass.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...are that I'm hyper-ultra-competitive and that I view absolutely
everything as a contest.
Nerdiness and strong optimism towards life are also fairly obvious.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Harry Potter series, Eragon Series, House of Leaves, Ender's
Game series, Moneyball
Shows: The League, HIMYM, Walking Dead, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,
BMS. I'm not ashamed to admit that I find dumb, perverted college
humor hilarious and love movies and shows that use it. (Looking at
you Seth Rogan.)
Movies: The Guardian, The Great Escape, the new Batman trilogy,
Dodgeball, Inception, The Adjustment Bureau. Anything that either
makes you think hard about something, ties action into a good
story, or does an exceptionally good job at dumb humor.
Music: Anything but "ghetto rap," slow country, or repetitive hip
hop, works for me - I have about 50 wildly different Pandora
stations. Favorites are The Offspring, Toby Keith, Flogging Molly,
Ludo, The Shins, and movie soundtracks (look up Hans Zimmer). I do
enjoy pop music; judge me if you want.
Food: Okra is a terrible food. Seriously, it's not even that
healthy and tastes terrible to boot. Beyond that, I'll try anything
once. Applesauce, anything with a lot of cheese and spicy tang, and
pulled pork are my favorites. I was vegetarian for a few years,
completely respect that decision, and still eat very little meat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-- The internet and my computer. It's good to be a nerd.
-- My childhood home and family. They're actually pretty
-- Cell phone. Not even kidding; it's almost a necessity.
-- Sleep. I simply do not understand how people survive on less
than 5 hours of sleep a night.
-- Puzzles and logic problems. No seriously, I once bought a book
not to read it but to solve the puzzle contained within it.
-- Intelligence. I judge unintelligent people and look down on them
- that probably makes me a bad person.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-- How to make myself a better person.
-- Why people don't consistently change their opinion when proven
wrong. And how easy it is to educate oneself with "The Google" when
such a person tries to explain said opinion with faulty
-- Why everyone in the Walking Dead can only speak in a dramatic
tone of voice.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually hanging out with friends - it's been a long time since I've
had a quiet Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There's a 6x6-foot whiteboard hanging in my living room always
covered with math equations, pseudo-code, and a list of activities
I want to attend.
So yeah, I'm a bit of a nerd. Hopefully that'll be the "cool" thing
someday and I'll get some "street cred" with my whiteboard. But
