My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Things I like: Aimless wandering, science, quality writing, taking things apart and putting them back together, beer, feminism, gender and inequality politics, music, and photography.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Getting my PhD and loving it. I play with lasers, build electronics, and study individual particles of light. Typically described as "playing with light" or, if i'm in a particularly good mood, "making light do what I say".

Otherwise, I spend my time taking pictures (examples), reading, and going for aimless walks to space out, think, and people watch. Cambridge is wonderful for this, especially since it usually involves stopping for coffee on the way. The weather's finally nice enough for this again ^.^
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Explaining science to strangers while drunk at a bar. Don't worry, I don't do this frequently, it's just happened one or twenty times.

Also, pen spinning. If you see someone walking up mass ave spinning something, say hi. I usually manage to not throw it at strangers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Current experiment: Re-reading Infinite Jest, but on a Kindle this time. Curious if links & different format modify the experience noticeably. Need to find a book to do kindle-first as well, but not sure what; Gravity's Rainbow maybe?

Recently finished books: The Symmetry Teacher by Andrei Bitov, V. by Thomas Pynchon, Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman, which prompted a re-read of American Gods, and, most recently, Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself (extended interview with DFW by David Lipsky). All highly recommended.

Joy reading: 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

John Oliver is a genius. Still missing Colbert. Jon Stewart still has his on nights.

Dying @ the second season of Silicon Valley. Hits so close to reality that I just can't watch some scenes.

Music-wise, I'm on an indie/electronic kick lately. I also have a vinyl collection of mostly 70s rock and classical (that I'm slowly expanding with modern vinyls and whatever I find in thrift shops), which is how I wind down. Otherwise, my guilty pleasures are late 90's/early aughts punk rock and emo
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.

Baby animals with derpy faces.
