My self-summary
My tastes in things are "interesting" to say the least, a nice blend of pretentious and eccentric. First and foremost, I love juggling, debating the finer plot points of Doctor Who on reddit, and reading .pdfs of continental philosophy in my free time (the analytic tradition is for the [reductionist] birds). I would have pictures of myself juggling, but while juggling it's difficult to take pictures. I would have friends take pictures of me juggling, but they prefer to not be seen with the guy who's juggling, and let's be honest--someone debating British sci fi online doesn't have much by way of friends. As you'll find further down, my music tastes are similarly strange, it's not even being a hipster any more, it's closer to acid casualty without sounding like I stepped out of a time warp. Much of my day is spent attempting keeping the strange thoughts in my head, and the rest of the day is spent reading about things on the internet that have no practical relevance to my life. UNC grad, BS in Mathematics. No, I don't want to teach.

Also, I love coffee. My personality goes from 0-60 almost immediately if I'm given coffee. When I don't have my coffee I'm an old man trapped in the body of an Adonis (modesty). I listen to NPR and complain about "kids these days", the decline of western civilization, and pop culture, usually until I'm flustered then I make a curmudgeonly joke and go back to not caring.

If you are a follower of Myers Briggs then I would fall under the ENTP category. I've done some research into it, and for what it's worth, it's a pretty decent sorting system, but don't take too much credence in it.

Currently, I'm transitioning to veganism, I definitely falter these days, but I'm a relatively strict vegetarian.

Chaotic Neutral
What I’m doing with my life
I just finished undergrad, and I'm working on my programming skills so that I'm a bit more valuable in the job market. Aside from that I bartend and manage at the Southern Rail (mostly The Station).
I’m really good at
I can talk about almost anything. I'm also northern, so I'm great at sounding like an asshole when I'm trying to be nice. I'm great at juggling (I've brought this up a bunch so it's obviously true). I'm also pretty solid at drawing, but I rarely do it anymore.
The first things people usually notice about me
The most common response is that I'm "lost in my own world". Others seem to think I'm gay, I prefer fabulous, it's probably due to my flawless skin, or comments like this.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books: The Futurica Trilogy, Cosmos, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, The Singularity is Near, A Clockwork Orange, Foundation, East of Eden, other stuff. It's hard for me to pick favorites,

My favorite movies: Good Will Hunting, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, A Scanner Darkly, Rounders, Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind, Pi, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and too many more to name, but also anything by Joss Whedon

My favorite music: I love progressive music, math-rock, doom/stoner metal, tech-death, hip-hop, post-rock, and various other genres. Some of my favorite bands include Tera Melos, This Town Needs Guns, MF Doom, Sunn O)), Bosnian Rainbows, Giraffes? Giraffes!, Pallbearer, Witch Mountain, SBTRKT, Grimes, Purity Ring, The Mars Volta, Brand New, Bayside, The Beach Boys, Andrew Jackson Jihad, A Tribe Called Quest, El-P, Notorious BIG, Death Grips, Tycho, just to name a few.

Favorite Television shows: Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel, Game of Thrones, Sense8, Breaking Bad, Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who (but seriously, so much Doctor Who), Bojack Horseman, House of Cards, anything Netflix puts out at this point honestly.

Favorite food: I love and will try anything once. But I especially love latino food and various asian cuisine
The six things I could never do without
Music. My laptop. Learning new things. Delicious food. Good Conversation. Random objects to fiddle with when I'm supposed to be paying attention.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
These days, mostly what I'm doing with the next stage of my life. That or, "why am I single?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Well, as of late, I've been working or going out to bars around town. Honestly though, I'm trying to find someone who wants to do anything else at this point.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I enjoy Bubblegum J-pop without the slightest bit of irony. Oh, and I sent my only begotten son to die for your sins.
You should message me if
you read books, have your own opinions, and have eccentric tastes in music or movies. If you feel your personality and interests could be beneficial to my life or vice versa. You know it's the 21st century and meeting people on dating platforms isn't stigmatized anymore so you don't need me to make up some bullshit story. Or if you think I'm hot, I can be shallow too if I must haha

Conversely, if you answered "Would you strongly prefer to go out with someone of the same race," with a yes, you're a fucking bigot and I'd rather not interact with you.
