Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a very loyal person; slow to trust and open up, but once I do,
I will stand by my friends no matter what. I have a rather dry
sense of humor and am pretty sarcastic, with a healthy dose of
quirky randomness thrown in. I'm told I can be quite clever, but I
think I'm hilarious. I often speak in movie or t.v. quotes.
I love adventure, whether it's a vacation on the other side of the
world (something I sadly haven't had a chance to do recently), or a
hike through the woods. I rock climb, SCUBA dive, and snowboard
whenever I can. I've gone kayaking a few times, and love it; I
should do it more. I'd really like to learn to kite board next. If
I have a day off, a large part of the day will likely be spent
doing one of these things.
I spend most nights at home, reading or playing video games. I've
always loved video games; they're a hobby I've had all my life, and
I won't apologize. I could wax philosophical about how they're a
new medium for story telling and all that, but really they're just
good fun. Once or twice a week I like to go out with friends for a
drink or two.
More than that, I think you'll have to get to know me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently earned my M.A. in Psychology. I would love to continue
on and earn a Ph. D., but often debate the merits of this plan. I
work at a rock climbing gym, and I have an internship at a marine
biology lab. I am eagerly searching for a research assistant
position pretty much anywhere. I'm also considering teaching at a
high school, and am currently discussing possible career options
with a guy at the DoD. So I guess you could say my career plans are
in flux at the moment.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I think I'm really good at intellectual pursuits, especially
debating or conversations about almost anything.
As I mentioned before, I'm also a really good snowboarder, and I
have several SCUBA certifications. I hike a couple times a week, so
if a person can be good at hiking, I definitely am.
Also, I'm a really good cook. People rave about my carnitas.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard and my smile.
Unless I'm walking my dog, then they notice him, and frequently
yell "wolf!" or "bear!" before running away. City people are funny

I spend a lot of time thinking about

What I'm doing/should be doing about my career.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either working, or out with my friends. Or I may be at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a closet nerd. I love all things sci-fi or fantasy. Although
I'm pretty open about it, so not that "closet" really. Which, I
guess, makes this a not very private thing to admit.
