Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
tl;dr - Physicist, Officer, Pilot, Boy Scout, Adventurer, Atheist.
In no particular order.
I'm a happy person :) I like to sing and dance, I'm
unapologetically bad at both, and I enjoy being around people who
are as excited to be alive as I am. Sometimes that comes off as
"weird" or "annoying because I'm trying to work" to other people,
but if you don't rock the boat, you'll never get it off the shore.
I have a direction in life and I try to dream big. Usually, my
dreams are followed by a series of unrealistic and illogical
fantasies like being Batman or understanding String Theory, but I
think it's important to have goals in life, even if they're
I enjoy helping other people and I consider myself to be a caring
and sincere individual. I'm immoderately nerdy and I have a dry,
sarcastic sense of humor that is "the pinnacle of modern comedy"
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in the Air Force, so I'll be moving around the next couple
years. I realize how difficult that makes long term/short term/any
type of term relationships, but you miss 100% of the shots you
don't take. I'm hoping to go to some overseas bases in the future
(like Japan, Hawaii, or Germany) so that I can sew some wild oats,
minus the rampant sexual activity.
Depending on how the next 15ish years go, I might try to go back to
graduate school, but a lot is up in the air (no pun intended,
self-five). I may go back to Colorado at some point for a teaching
gig if the timing works out and I can get released from my career
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can hold my own in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and in
Seriously though, I'm really good at Rubik's cubes, remembering
what that one song is called that goes like ..., winking, quantum
physics, wearing my hat sideways, shrinking sweaters in the washing
machine, Super Smash Bros, skiing backwards into telephone poles,
not swearing, and saying the one thing that will make you laugh
when you're having a bad day.
The first things people usually notice about me

my sense of humor. It's pretty intense sometimes and if I get you
laughing, I don't stop. Unless I run out of things to say, then I
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm a fan of most science fiction, but I've
recently started reading more biographical stuff along with some
philosophy. I'm stumbling through Game of Thrones at the moment and
I've done pretty well at avoiding plot spoilers via the TV show and
Facebook so, you know, don't ruin it.
Music: I listen to just about anything except
country which is ironic because I live in Texas. I do have a soft
spot for metal which is not ironic, but it is pretty vivid imagery
if I do say so myself. I should be a writer. Women who can sing are
basically my Achilles heel.
Food: I'm into almost any type of food. Eating is
one of my favorite pastimes and I love cooking. I'm pretty good,
but I've never been on any celebrity TV cooking shows so what do I
Movies and TV: I'd like to pretend that I don't
care about movies and TV, but I want the things I can't have, so I
tend to secretly binge watch Netflix over the weekend when I'm not
studying. I have no idea why; they're not even good shows/movies.
I'm fully aware that I'm completely wasting my time and that I
should be doing my laundry or studying for my test next Wednesday.
What is wrong with me?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Omitting the explanation of the series of unfortunate events that
necessitated me choosing the six things I can keep and assuming I
don't need to pack for any type of apocalypse, I'd have to go with
1. my irreplaceable friends
2. my family
3. learning something new every day
4. spell check
5. a healthy sense of humor
6. good conversation/debate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Mostly I focus on my job. It's kind of a stressful environment
given that people fail out of/die in my career all the time, but I
spend a lot of time working to achieve that zen-like state that
will get me through training but not get me pulled over and
arrested while driving. I usually work 12-16 hour days, so I don't
have a huge amount of free time during the week, but I love what I
do so that helps a little :)
I love to discuss physics. It's kind of my thing. I'll do what I
can to avoid the subject if I see glazed eyes, but I could talk
about it for hours. One of my life goals is to invent
teleportation. Also, I have a special place in my heart for
Astrophysics and General Relativity so you can't have that piece. I
started doing some amateur astrophotography in my free time, and I
might try to get a nicer research grade telescope when I grow up
(and stop moving so much).
I'm a bit of an outdoor snob. I love hiking and backpacking but I
generally balk at camping requests because they colloquially imply
simply driving into the woods to sleep in a car (if you're going to
sleep in a tent, you should probably be more than 10 feet from your
vehicle). I love looking up at night in the middle of nowhere.
Sadly, I have yet to make it out to Big Bend.
I'm also really starting to get into philosophy and religion. I'm
an atheist, but I've read through the Bible and
Bhagavad Gita (working on the Koran) because
religion fascinates me. Every once in a while, when I get bored,
I'll whip out some Plato or Epictetus and then the party really
A recent endeavor I've developed is to learn a few other languages.
Spanish would be the optimal choice given that I essentially live
in Mexico, but I've started in on ASL and Swedish too. I took
Japanese in college because it was a "strategic language". Thanks,
I'm hypocritical in that I don't carry/own a concealed
weapon/handgun for safety reasons, but if lightsabers existed, I
would undoubtedly have two.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
They were out of typical Friday nights at Walmart so I only have
the atypical kind.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I seriously considered writing something personal for this
question. Ok, fine, I have a pink pocket knife that I carry to cut
stray strings off my clothes. Weird.
