Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I strive. I try to do right by the world. I help people
professionally. I also get paid to do my hobby. That is as awesome
as it sounds. I'm developing some kind of chess habit. I like to
read. I like to run around. It has been almost two years since my
last game of tag.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm making a new life. Almost everything about my life has changed
over the last two years; I've changed occupations, I've gone from
poverty to making what feels to me like an astronomical amount of
money, I've gone from a life I *had* to live to trying to figure
out what life I *want* to live. My apartment is a microcosm of my
existence: its new to me, I'm still furnishing and lighting it, I'm
filling it with things I want in it. Maybe this sounds super hippie
but I feel like my life is blooming.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've worn a lot of hats, so I'm fairly good at quite a few things
without being especially good at any one thing. What am I *not*
good at is intentionally succeeding. I always seem to find things I
didn't know I was supposed to be looking for.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told my eyes are very noticeable. They're bright blue. I
expect my bald head of Patrick Stewart-like awesomeness also stands
out. I'm told I'm fast on the draw with snarky remarks, but not in
a mean way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
There aren't enough hours in a day to list my nonfiction reading.
Nerd culture, cult films, prog rock (and 70 other genres of music),
food I didn't cook, food I did cook.
I love my geek nerd stuff. Old Star Trek, nostalgia shows,
Right now I'm working on my chess game with my friends and
searching Santa Rosa for restaurants because I love noshable
cuisine. I think I'm going to have to add the new Mad Max movie to
the list. So fantastic.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Mechanical pencils; they help accomplish literally every task in my
life in some way.
Books. Lots of books.
My co-workers. I've never loved non-family so much.
Thai food. Its an affliction. Its an addiction.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can be a better mensch. Antiquity and what it tells us about
today. How things have changed. How things have not changed. What I
want my life to be. How to teach my classes more effectively. How
to do my main job more effectively. What I want in my living room.
Why OKC describes my personality as "more sloppy", when I don't
think anyone, including current or former bosses, roommates, or
ex-girlfriends would use that word to describe me. I am fairly
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Unwinding from my week, possibly lesson planning for the class I
teach on Saturdays. Setting up my new apartment. Buying home
furnishings, striving to get through this "half-furnished" phase.
Sometimes I swing dance, but not so much lately.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know, guess you'll have to try me and find out.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to watch Adventure Time with me. I mean, that isn't all I
do, but I like to take twelve minutes a day and watch an episode of
Finn and Jake. Or if you otherwise feel like messaging me.
