Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, I recently started seeing someone I like very much. Thanks,
UPDATE: Engaged to her now! Even more thanks, OKC!
Ahh, an unguided essay with no prompts. Hmm, what to say. I'm 27,
new in town, a college graduate, and in between phases of my life.
If all goes well, next year I'll be in medical school going
slightly crazy. But I'm not a one-dimensional science guy
(although, I do love it). I have an artistic side. As dorky as it
seems, I wanted to be a screenwriter for many years prior to my med
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Applying to med schools for 2012 and working as an MCAT instructor
for Kaplan in the meantime. Hopefully, getting involved with some
volunteer work soon, too.
In my spare time, I'm big into movies. Most particularly, I'm into
70's horror, but I'm aware that that's a very specific niche...I
watch plenty of regular movies, too. The Muppets, for instance, was
a fantastic movie.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I try to be pretty decent at a lot of things. I orienteer, train my
dogs, read a lot, write/shoot the occasional short film (mostly
just for fun), I'm pretty good with computers, hopefully I'll be a
good teacher once I start instruction in January, and I'm pretty
knowledgeable about medical stuff.

Currently reading: The Road (Cormac McCarthy)
Max Barry is my favorite author (Jennifer Government, Syrup,
The Coen Brothers, Romero, and Raimi are my favorite directors, but
my list of favorite movies is far too long to paste here. Just a
smattering, though: No Country For Old Men, There Will Be Blood,
Drag Me to Hell, the Dead Trilogy, O Brother Where Art Thou, I
<3 Huckabees, Pan's Labyrinth, Alien and plenty of others.
I like a lot of genres of music, but mostly Indie and Classic Rock.
Definitely some hip hop, a little techno/Dubstep too. Barenaked
Ladies and The Decemberists are my favorite bands, though. Can't
beat those witty lyrics! Muse is a close #3 because arpeggios are
I love all sorts of ethnic food but I have the lamest digestive
disorder in the world, Celiac disease, so I can't have wheat which
limits my choices substantially. Fortunately, sushi and Mexican are
largely still on the menu so I might yet survive.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My phone...it contains my entire life. Probably a bad idea but
hey, they make it so easy!
2) My dogs. They're awesome. I may have to let my parents keep them
next year, which is somewhat heartbreaking.
3) The Bears/White Sox...okay, I probably COULD do without them but
I wouldn't want to.
4) My friends! I left them all in the Midwest and I miss
5) My family. Some of them are here, others are in Michigan.
6) My kidneys. For obvious reasons.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What the world would be like if I had a dinosaur to ride. When I
was a kid I was SO sure I would have one by now. Funny how life
doesn't work out the way you plan sometimes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing whatever my friends are doing. I just want to hang out with
people I like.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Haha, right. You have to EARN that!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have a secret (or not so secret) nerdy side, because mine is
totally present and I can only hide it for so long!
And, apparently I match up really well with lawyers. They're all my
best matches. So, calling all lawyers, I guess!
