My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I strive to explore more. In years gone by I hadn't gotten to do as much traveling as I would have liked, so I moved to New York from Milwaukee in 2012. Now I've been trying to learn the metropolitan area as well as I can, and I'm still working to get a deeper knowledge than just how to get around. So far it's different enough so that it was worth moving here, but I'm surprised by how people seem to think it's a totally different world. I think some people who move here have never lived close to the downtown of any other large city, so their idea of how different New York is gets exaggerated.

There are all sorts of things I want to be more knowledgeable about, but perhaps I'm inconsistent on how much I value knowledge. I like reading history and current events and would like to have more intricate knowledge of religions and philosophies that I don't necessarily subscribe to. It would be good to be able to meet someone and have a better understanding of where they are coming from. But of course that takes time so I make progress on this rather slowly.

I like bike riding, studying Mandarin, 3D photography, programming games, and I've been making good use of a long commute to do reading. I go swing dancing regularly, and take lessons to get more advanced in it. I used to do a very little bit of disc golfing, but that's harder in NYC than back in Wisconsin. I try to be good at organizing get-togethers with my friends and get everybody else out of the house.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a computer programmer, trying to increase my life experiences by meeting some people from some different places.

I've found some work in Jersey City, but I'm still working to build up my social circles here.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like to read history books and current events information.
Some of the history books I've read include some on Germania, "Island at the Center of the World" (about Dutch Manhattan), "Making of Milwaukee", a book on Marco Polo, and "1491".
Other stuff I've enjoyed in the past includes Azimov's Foundation series, "The Fall of Rome" (historical fiction), "Star Trek: Federation", "Great American City: What Works and Doesn't", the Time Machine.
I listen to Big Band music, jazz, alternative, and a little bit of classical. I listen to music from The Cardigans, New Phornographers, (actually pretty clean if you don't know the band), Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Jay Chou, and Sun Yan Zi.
I watch a lot of Science Fiction on TV including Stargate and Star Trek. Sometimes I'll watch Downton Abbey, S.H.I.E.L.D., or Gotham. I watch comedies like Arrested Development, 30 rock, Red Dwarf, IT Crowd, and Black Adder.
I'm not as big a fan of old time radio as I used to be, but I still enjoy Jack Benny and CBS Radio Mystery Theater.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Take this with a grain of salt but I'll list:
+ friends and family
+ church
+ dancing (swing and ceili)
+ nice walks around the neighborhood, feeling either the hmm of the motion around me or the calm of relative silence
+ my bicycle
+ logic puzzles

I used to put "library" on the list, but I've found myself buying books more often lately.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...where I'm going to go exploring next.
...why I'm not spending my time doing and learning certain things if I really value them.
...how to phrase things in an expected conversation.
...parallels I can draw between things in my own life, the Bible, history, and the news.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Maybe dancing, but probably relaxing at home. I tend to have some pretty busy evenings during the week, so Friday nights I need to recuperate.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
About 10 years ago I went into the Windows Registry on my computer of the time and changed the name of the Recycle Bin to the "So-long Files". It seemed funny at the time, but now I don't get my own joke.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you want to recommend a place to go swing, ceili, or salsa dancing. (I don't know the last of those too well yet), or
you like to talk about world news, or
you'd like someone to listen to you talk about laws of physics asking occasional questions.
