My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In short, I'm a more-than-slightly energetic hopeless academic who likes to run, talk/learn about basically anything, meet new people, and occasionally dance my ass off.

Long walks on the beach are nice, but long runs by the river are more fun.

Things I'm a fan of: Literature, science (physics, math, psychology predominantly), dancing at shows, feminism, coffee, photography, writing, journalism, philosophy,...

"Low energy" has never been used to describe me; I'm capable of quiet when appropriate, but it's not really my natural state. I'd rather be exhausted later than bored now.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I play with lasers, build electronics, and study how weird the world really is. In other words, getting a PhD studying quantum mechanics and light, and loving it.

Otherwise, I spend my time reading, running, taking pictures (examples), reading, baking/cooking, and going for long aimless walks through Boston and Camberville to space out, decompress, and think. And reading.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Current experiment: Re-reading Infinite Jest, but on a Kindle this time. Curious if links & different format modify the experience noticeably.

Recently finished books: The Symmetry Teacher by Andrei Bitov, V. by Thomas Pynchon, and Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself (extended interview with DFW by David Lipsky). All highly recommended.

Writers I like: Ta-Nehisi Coates, Ezra Klein, Richard K. Morgan, David Foster Wallace, Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, Oliver Sacks, Neil Gaiman, Nabokov,...

Joy reading categories: Longform journalism (The New Yorker, The Atlantic, NY Review of Books, NY Mag's better pieces, etc.), literary fiction, well written sci-fi/fantasy

More serious reading: Philosophy of science, analytic philosophy, psychology, physics, and math

TV: John Oliver is a genius. Still missing Colbert. Jon Stewart still has his on nights. Silicon Valley is great.

Music-wise, I'm on an indie/electronic kick lately. I also have a vinyl collection of mostly 70s rock and classical (but padded with more recent additions), which is how I wind down. In general, extremely non-picky about my music genre as long as it's a quality example of the genre.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How ridiculously complicated the world is. Whether we'll ever really get a grasp on it. What the limits to human cognition imply for the future of science.
