My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Short and sweet: I might be a dry, objective, course, complicated and imaginative thinker that LOVES EVERYONE, but maybe too strange to have found someone that loves me too. I know. It's sad. :( But I have never been the kind that tries to hide from my own true nature.

Longer: Ohhhh don't read this part! just skip to like, the sex-related questions in the question/answer section! That's the entertaining part of Okcupid anyway XD! Ok but for real, what shall I put here? Here goes: I am playful, kinda touchy-feely (I like my hugs and such), prone to say things that sometimes seem offensive (because I am very objective in my thought process), sort of a "schemer" (i.e. not afraid to break the rules), a humanist, bit of a nerd, and am constantly frustrated by the realization of my own untapped potential. Why? I find it very hard for me to do many things exclusively for my own sake. I.e. I am much more of a giver. A philanthropist. It is rather a curse... but it is also just my nature. Most of all, I am a person who loves change. New things. I am willing to take the chances, and try something I've never tried before. Ok now, once you are done reading this, just go ahead message me already and tell me how terrible of a person I am, or how wonderful, or where the next "getaway" is that you are going to so that we can have some fun together already!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finishing up my AA this summer, I might decide to move up to NY or Boston, but right now I am still deciding what I want to do from here. I had it in my head for a while that I wanted to be a Physics professor, but now the stock market has caught my eye... who knows what the end result will be.

Whatever happens, i'll make the best of it. THAT, I promise.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fixing things. (Mechanic)

Thinking things. (Pretty imaginative and open-minded)

Listening to people. Really though, I would say that I am pretty good at getting people to talk about themselves; and I think it's because people can easily tell that I am a very genuine person. Non-judgmental.

Also, let me just say that I love the outdoors, and I am pretty big fan of outdoor activities. Running, hiking, canoeing, fishing. I'm up for it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I make them notice themselves.

Also, I'm sure that my generally "reserved" nature is also something that they notice; but then, my disposition is always dependent on my surroundings. I can be all kinds of things.

...when I asked a close friend to tell me what she first noticed, she replied: "That you're a smarty-pants!" Thanks alot. -_-

(Yes, that's right, my best friend is an "Alot": http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/04/alot-is-better-than-you-at-everything.html)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot of classic stuff, but now I have been listening to a lot more audiobooks (plus audio lectures) on different subjects. My most recent read was "1984".

My BEST read yet though I would have to say, was Atlas Shrugged. It was harsh, but realistic at the same time (and quite the antithesis to my own views, which made it all the more interesting). Actually, because of time constraints, I take in almost all my books via audiobook.

Other books I enjoyed:

Lord of the Flies
Brave New World
Enders Game
Speaker for the Dead (From Ender's series)
Catch 22 (Minus a few chapters :/ )

Some Favorite Movies:

The Great Gatsby
Life of Pi
Journey to the West (Chinese)
Her
The Matrix
Princess Mononoke (of course)
The Princess Bride (had to list the other Princesses, lol)
Hero (With Jet Li)
Cats (The musical)
Mulan
Book of Eli
The Cube
The SANDLOT!
What Dreams May Come
Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?

...really, a ton. I think that list will give you an idea of the range, though.

Music:

I mostly like the Oldies. Sanatra, Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Lionel Richie and all that. It was really such great time in music; but I'm always looking for good modern stuff. My favorite guys right now are Daft Punk, MGMT and Empire of the Sun.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Transhumanist hopes.
2. Truth.
3. Change.
4. Learning.
5. Someone to listen to all my nonsense.
6. The one who found out it's not nonsense at all. *Wink*
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Pfft. I think about everything. Physics, morality, economics, psychology, history, social trends... Maybe I need something more "mundane" to think about, or maybe, just need to think less.

Funny thing is though, when I talk this stuff over with company, I always end up doing more listening than talking (hey; that's how you come out with new ideas).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Looking at stocks, or at homework, or at what kind of local event I can possibly run off to, if I can find the time that weekend.

You should join me, yes?? :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I want to go frolic in a field. Like NAO.

No but really, the most private thing that I am willing to admit is that I have realized that I am really not the kind of person that can feel fulfilled alone. "They" seem to say that a person should be able to achieve a state of self-fulfillment and wholeness, even as an isolated individual; but I have realized that I just cannot do that, and I am done hiding from it/denying it too. I'm just done with all forms of self-denial/asceticism. I need to find someone to share life with- it's not that complicated.

And I like poetry! BTW, here is one of my favorite Poe poems. The narrator is amazing, but some say he sounds "scary", so be prepared for an intense voice:

I don't care if this part sounds like a motivational speech. I am dead serious about it.

You can be practical, but you still have your dreams.
You can be cynical, but you still have your hopes.
Your fears are strong, but your will can be stronger.
Your faults are big, but your heart is definitely bigger.
And please, please people- You still believe in love.
