My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
These days it's difficult to live an authentic life, but despite the occasional bout of cynicism, I keep trying. By an authentic life, I mean something like what the philosophers used to call the "good life." I still like to believe that the good life is an attainable ideal, and to that end I am currently a PhD student, spending my days doing a fair amount of reading, thinking, and writing about the world we live in. I think it was Leonard Cohen who once said that he doesn't get out of bed in the morning until he's achieved a state of grace--I guess that's one way of staying just on the other side of disillusionment.

I would describe myself as an unabashed minimalist--which more or less means that I believe in quality over quantity. I like good movies, good food, and good wine. I get excited about opera every now and then. While I prefer to live in cities, the countryside is where I'd rather be probably 90% of the time. One day I will take up gardening in earnest. If I could do it all over again, I'd consider being a master chef or an astronomer. I sleep on my back--down pillows are a must. There is always some form of chocolate on my writing desk. I like to think I jog 6 miles a day, 7 days a week, but it's probably more like 3 miles, 3 days a week. I never order dessert, though I always look at the dessert menu. I take my coffee black and my whisky neat.
