My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I wear more hats than Bartholomew Cubbins; I've got more labels than Campbell's Soup does. But with all my expectations long abandoned and a life that just gets more and more demandin' - my solitary nature notwithstandin' - I'm just looking for my stunning mystery companion. (With apologies to Jackson Browne). Anyway, there's a bunch of information below, so I figure you can find what interests you there.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a management and budget consulting analyst with Public Financial Management, as well as an assistant high school forensics coach. Or in other words, I'm living my life, helping the people's governments serve them better, and training a set of future leaders.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
holding a complex storyline together in my head. Some people say I have a really good memory, but I'm not convinced. And I'm good at public speaking when I try. Or singing - I have a good singing voice on some songs.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Generally, my opinions. I'm actually fairly quiet in public, but when I do talk, I think my opinions show through. ... Or my eyes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Movie: What About Bob, St. Elmo's Fire and The Breakfast Club (though the ending grates on me). And I'm a huge fan of Pixar and of superhero movies.

Book: The Ships of Earth by Orson Scott Card or The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas

TV: (prepare to be inundated) Doctor Who, Star Trek (seen every episode), Smallville (seen every episode), The Cape (sad it got canceled, seen every episode), Arrow (seen every episode) Better Off Ted, Torchwood (seen every episode), Law and Order: LA, Colbert Report, Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Simpsons, King of Queens, the West Wing (seen every episode), MasterChef.

Music: I'm a moderate Eagles fan, and my musical taste tends to avoid anything past 1989 with a few exceptions. Also, Jackson Browne, Linda Rondstat, Billy Joel, ELO, Beatles, Herman's Hermits, kinda like the sound of Dawes.

Food: Can't go wrong with a simple cheeseburger...that is unless you actually put the cheese on it.

Theater: The theater is kinda a thing in my family (My sister is an aspiring director and my father is a drama teacher). I'm not anything of a theater buff but I enjoy: Into the Woods, Camelot, Man of La Mancha, Oklahoma, Anything Goes, Hamlet, Macbeth, and a few others.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Well the reality is that the human experience is adaptable to just about any circumstance, but... in the spirit of the question
1. My cell phone
2. My computer with a (high speed) internet connection
3. Soda, preferably Coke.
4. TV or film
5. Ellipsis, semi-colons, and en-dashes
6. A problem to solve
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Politics, Philosophy, whether the line "the bigger you are the faster you burn" from the Green Lantern is accurate under the laws of physics or not (thinking it might be), the origin of words and why we say "someone will bring me home" when home but use take when elsewhere, ASPEC, and other such minutia...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
either at work, or at home watching tv. If I'm lucky, at the movie theater or grabbing dinner with a friend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Uhh...let's see...well, I suppose a long time ago, I had the nickname "Ducky" cause there was one yellow shirt that I wore all the time. Sure, that works.

Oh, and some poetry:

"For of all sad words of tongue or pen,
The saddest are these: 'It might have been!'"
-John Greenleaf Whittier

"So often times it happens / that we live our lives in chains / and we never even know we have the key."

"Will you come and follow me if I but call your name?
Will you go where you don't know and never be the same?
Will you let my love be shown? Will you let my name be known?
Will you let my life be grown in you and you in me?
Will you leave yourself behind if I but call your name?
And admit to what I mean in you and you in me?
Will you love the "you" you hide if I but call your name?
Will you quell the fear inside and never be the same?
Your summons echoes true when you but call my name.
Let me turn and follow you and never be the same.
In your company I'll go where your love and footsteps show.
Thus I'll move and live and grow in you and you in me."
