My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'll admit that I'm a little weird (INTJ if you read into any of that). I have a t-shirt that says "Programmer - an organism that converts caffeine and pizza into software." In summary, I'm horrible at making a good first impression.

I'm often quiet, but I'm very sincere once you get me talking. I like to be around equally sincere and intelligent people who aren't afraid to challenge me. I like to believe that I'm pretty laid back, but my friends tell me that I'm driven, diligent, or that I have a strong personality... So, iono
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a career academic, hoping to complete a PhD in math and become a professor. My particular interests are in cryptography and cybersecurity. I wear a lot of hats at NIU and I'm glad to see the work I do have an impact.

I'm looking forward to the summer semester, where things slow down and I have time to focus on picking other things up. My highest priority is in looking to get a puppy. Fuck yeah! Second, is to start exercising again. Otherwise, I have some side projects I need to do research on.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'd say I'm good at noticing nuances of language (ravens and writing desks), catching errors (sometimes saving your ass), solving problems, and pointing out obscure facts.

I'm also very good at programming and teaching it. I come up with a lot of interesting analogies and examples and try to give exposure to material that's ahead to pique interest. Both students and colleagues seem to love my deadpan and witty sense of humor in explaining concepts too. Just don't get me started on how to use "this."

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
todo list and other text files
bullshit meter
jeans and tshirts... I have simple needs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to express my ideas.
answers to silly questions like this or "how's it going?"
the geography of fictional universes.
how to improve processes, either organizational or computer.
how different the art is between what's inspired by a woman's connection to nature versus a man's connection to nature.
the hypothesis that you can tell the political leanings of people by how much they follow your gaze during conversation.
how related theoretical computer science is to group theory... not that you're another math major who's as curious about the same things.

A specific example of where my mind wonders:
If I were ever in a Milgram experiment, I'd probably shock the test subject with the highest voltage right away just to screw with the experimenter.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
dominos and spreadsheets,... sadly.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you arrive precisely when you mean to, you have your own quirky little passions, you don't get scared by words like misanthropic or exponentiation, you can pass a turing test, and you like to get a little buzzed once-in-awhile and have long conversations.

Also, you must like dogs.
