Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(Disclaimer: I just cut my hair much shorter and I haven't taken
good new photos yet, so keep that in mind.)
I am dispositionally incapable of smiling and looking
friendly/happy when I'm having a non-spontaneous/candid photo
taken, so please forgive the "dour" looking photos that I have on
my profile. Damn you, self-consciousness! I know I'm generally a
serious and philosophical/intellectual person, but come on...
My ideal job in life would be to be a writer for the Onion. Alas,
I'm not usually clever enough on my own unless I have other people
to bounce funny ideas off of, although I have my moments.
I'm an artistic and intellectual type of person who is always
working on various projects. I don't like wasting time on things
that aren't important, but I also love good humor and to laugh and
have fun. So, the pressure is on.
And now...on with the show!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Ah...this is a very humble question designed to showcase one's
humility I see.
I won't presume to speak on a subject matter on which only others
may speak of. I don't wish to be a self-deceiver or braggart about
things which I may be wrong about.
In other words...I'm good at avoiding questions.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sexy, prefrontal cortex. (Although my cerebellum ain't bad.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Blank Slate, Wheel of Time series, tons of philosophy books
(especially of the continental variety) and psychology/social
I don't really like many movies these days, especially those
standard plot-driven ones. I prefer movies like The Fountain, I
Heart Huckabees, The Tree of Life, etc.
I'm pretty specific in my music tastes, specifically of the
"post-rock/post-metal" genre. Bands like Tool, Isis, Cult of Luna,
as well as classic mid-90s bands like Alice in Chains, Soundgarden,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Six is sort of an arbitrary number, isn't it? And there is
something about the phrasing of this prompt that is awkward to
me...anyone else notice that? (By the way, isn't it funny how the
word "awkward" is itself kind of awkward?)
I guess going by my response above, one thing I can't go without is
questioning things. As I'm getting bored with this question, I will
now proceed to ignore it and move on.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Philosophy, love, pain, politics, possibilities, constraints,
social negotiations, language, human psychology, religion,
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hunting for alligators. Or is it crocodiles? I always get the two
confused with each other...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Admitting a private thing in public by definition makes it not
private anymore, and therefore this prompt is contradictory.
And yes...I'm very fun at parties with this analytical attitude.
