My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm outgoing, fun-loving and funny on occasion (or at least that's what people tell me). I really love to laugh, so being around other people who have a sense of humor (and an appreciation for sarcasm) is necessary. I'm very open-minded, and down to try anything once. My idea of a good time ranges from enjoying the Texas sunshine to dancing to shoe shopping to cooking to watching documentaries to playing with my dog... or we can have a beer. Or a glass of wine.

I'm versatile like that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a Ph.D. candidate at UT-Austin and I want to be a professor one day. So, I like books and feminist/critical race/queer theory, I write 20 page papers with relative ease, and I'll debate you, if you're up to it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Having fun no matter where I'm at. I try to make the most out of any situation.

Oh, and karaoke. I'm the karaoke queen.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a lot of hair. When it's curly, people tend to be really fascinated by it.

Also, I have several tattoos. Some are pretty visible, like the ones on my foot and forearms, and the rest are, well, not so visible.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This is a hard, because I have a TON of books, films, music and food that I like... I have pretty eclectic musical taste, and listen to just about everything but heavy metal. My music collection has everything from Jay-Z to Elvis Presley to Edith Piaf to Sugarland to The Black Keys to Prince to Nirvana to Yo-Yo Ma to Erykah Badu... I also like film scores.

Books-wise, my library is either academic stuff or it's fantasy-fiction novels. I have the entire Wheel of Time series and the A Song of Ice and Fire series. I'm always open to suggestions, though... sometimes I worry I'll never get around to reading anything just for the fun of it.

Food is easy. If it tastes good, I'll like it.

Film... also really eclectic. I love critically-acclaimed and absolutely terrible movies, and I honestly can't pick a favorite. The most common directors in my collection are Tarantino, Spike Lee, Spielberg, Scorcese and Judd Appatow.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my dog, Kira
my phone (to keep in touch w/ all the important people in my life)
my bed
oh, and football.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game. things are socially constructed.

It's the curse of my discipline, as the further I go, the harder it is to turn my "academic brain" off sometimes. Typically makes for some interesting drunken observations.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing at home, catching up on shows I DVR'd during the week and drinking a glass of wine. It's typically my one night I dedicate to "down time" during the week, since I stay pretty busy working on articles, my dissertation, or grading.

I do like to go out once in a while. I appreciate that Austin has pretty nice bars.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've made a habit of reading YA novels lately... Despite their penchant for teenage love triangles and hokey "love" scenes, I find them to be an easy way to escape the academic reading for a little while without being too dense that I can't finish them over a weekend.

When I decided to read Roots for fun, it took me several months.
