My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I can often be found with my nose in a book while noodling at the piano. I like this because it combines two of my favorite things: music and reading. For the same reason, I read books on science and fiddle with a guitar while wasting time on my computer. If nothing else, I'm efficient with my hobbies.

If I were to describe myself, I would choose phrases such as "dashing astronomy nerd," "creates a fire hazard by reading books while cooking," "gets strange looks from other drivers due to loud singing" and "do not place in direct sunlight."

More to the point, I'm a scientist, a musician, a reader of books, a cooker of foods, a person who grudgingly enjoys the outdoors (fine, I guess those trees are pretty and the sun is warm on my back, I suppose), and I'm way more of a romantic and idealist than my demeanor would suggest.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently studying for my Ph.D. in physics at RPI. My research interest is astrophysics. I hope to teach at a college level after my doctorate is finished.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Math. Calculating tips. Contemplating the heavens on clear nights. Rambling about astrophysics. Alliteration. Music. Cooking. Reading books when I should be studying. Procrastination in general. Unintentionally whacking my extremities on doorjambs and walls.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I tend to be kind of low-key and reserved when I first meet people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Hmmm, a tough one. I like to read a lot. Like, a LOT. Favorite authors include Terry Pratchett, Jim Butcher, Stephen King, and Kurt Vonnegut; favorite genres include fiction, fantasy, biography, history, science, and politics.

I'm also open to recommendations; unless a book is truly dire, I will probably finish it and have thoughts to share.

Movies: I have terrible taste in movies. My idea of a movie is something that will entertain me for a couple hours and make it worth getting to Colonie Center and coughing up eleven bucks. So I enjoy crap like Pacific Rim, Oblivion, Godzilla, and goofy comedies.

Shows: Favorites are Parks and Recreation, Frasier, How I Met Your Mother, Scrubs, and The West Wing. Lately, I've also been enjoying Boston Legal, Sherlock, and Breaking Bad. I keep meaning to watch Game of Thrones, but I've already read the books. Always on the lookout for something new and worthwhile.

Music: Depends on what I've been listening to recently. This can be anything from Beethoven to Frank Sinatra to the Beatles to Iron Maiden. In general, though, I enjoy classical, classic rock, a bit of folk and punk, a lot of metal, and movie soundtracks (there is no god but John Williams and Howard Shore is His prophet).

Food: Rare steaks. Sushi. Potatoes, baked or mashed. Asparagus with Hollandaise sauce. Salmon. Craft beer (RIP Mahar's). Red wine. Earl Grey tea. Hot wings from Bombers.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My books. At any given time, I'm reading at least one book. I need to buy more bookshelves, because not only do I love to read, I also love books.

My iPod. Life is so much better with a soundtrack.

Comfortable socks. Seriously, SmartWool is the best sock material ever invented, and necessary in the winter.

Dry-erase markers. How am I supposed to teach if I can't write on the whiteboard?

My guitars. I love music just as much as I love reading.

The Internet. It's how I'm entertained and do research and work. Pretty much wouldn't be able to function without it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why grading is such a gigantic pain in the ass. What TV show to marathon next on Netflix. When Fallout 4 is going to come out. Ethics and social justice. Whether academia is worth all this trouble. Traveling to other countries.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking beer somewhere. Probably with friends. Pontificating about things that no one else cares about. Or being introverted at home with a book and sushi.

Lately, watching Good Eats with my roommate.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I had dreadlocks my senior year in college. Looked cool for a while, but didn't turn out well.
