Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a very lucky person. I do what I love. I have a close, loving
relationship with my family. My friends are supportive and caring.
My body always does what I ask without too much complaining. I have
money in my pocket and food in the fridge. There's a lot of beauty
in my life.
I try to remember all of that whenever the little things start to
feel bigger than they have any right to be. Doesn't always work,
but you can't win 'em all.
I laugh at people. Mostly when laughing isn't appropriate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a graduate student. When I'm not in class or teaching, I'm
usually studying. I like to spend my spare time making art. I run.
I listen to music. I often get lost in the interwebs. I'm
self-deprecating. I can be overly critical, but I'm also very
trusting and extremely loyal. I spend every summer traveling. I
love the ocean. I'm super funny...in my opinion.
I like thoughtful, intelligent men who are aware of their flaws and
aren't seeking perfection. Self-awareness is very sexy. So is
laughter. I need more laughter in my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I keep coming back and changing my answer in this section. It's
maddening! I'm kind of not liking OK Cupid right now for making me
think about this...again.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

It's impossible to list a favorite in any of these categories. I'm
always reading something. Being a student in my area of study
requires an abundance of reading. I'm currently reading several
French novels that you have probably never heard of and some texts
on French colonization. I love magazines. I really miss news
stands. I used to be able to walk for five minutes and spend hours
flipping through magazines and now I have to get in my car and
DRIVE for 30 minutes to get to a giant corporate bookstore that
doesn't even have everything I wanna look at but it's all that's
left so what choice do I have?! I'm surprised by how passionate I
suddenly am about this.
Like many people these days I've become a Netflix binge watcher. I
just finished all eight seasons of the new Doctor Who series (maybe
that wasn't really a binge because it took almost a year to watch
them all). I love just about anything in the science fiction genre.
Star Trek is probably the show I have watched the most. I also like
Looking (HBO series), Un Village Francais, the Daily Show, and some
others that I can't remember at the moment. I usually have
something on the computer while I'm painting or drawing.
My taste in music is rather varied, I suppose. I just downloaded
two songs by Panic at the Disco, a new Marilyn Manson single, the
Arctic Monkeys, Lorde, Bastille, and Flo-Rida. I like to listen to
fast-paced dance music when I'm running (which I do often) but I
listen to Baroque while studying. I guess I don't really "listen"
to it, it's just on in the background while I'm focusing on other
things. Occasionally I do stop and listen to something, though,
when it catches my attention. I guess I just like music that suits
my mood. Sometimes that means The Black Keys and sometimes that
means Adele and sometimes it's Madonna. (Update: I just realized
that I'm a total poser for even using the word "baroque" in my
profile...what an asshole!)
I will typically eat just about anything. Although I'm kind of on a
vegan kick right now. But I'm not sure why. I'm just not in the
mood for animal, I guess.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Never? How about the things I can't do without for now:
2. These new kick ass Adidas running shoes!
3. Montana Gold spray cans
5. Caran d'Ache pencils
6. Red wine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...which color to use.
Why are women always telling me what to do? (Maybe that's why I'm
gay...well, in addition to my immense enjoyment of having sex with

Private? This is the Internet. I'm pretty sure we're not doing
private these days.
