My self-summary
Atlanta native here looking for someone to hang out with, watch movies, do fun stuff around the city, and see where things go. I love road trips and music and writing. I have a knack for making people laugh, and I'm just a fun-loving guy in general.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a graduate student at the University of West Georgia (very humanistic/existential/transpersonal psych program) with the ultimate goal of becoming a professional counselor.

I came back recently from an 18-month stint teaching English in Taiwan, and I seriously miss the adventure and the people.
I’m really good at
Discerning different aromas in wines
Making people laugh
Using a mouse
Moonwalking
Breaking expensive things
Making pizza from scratch
The first things people usually notice about me
At the moment, it's my broken leg. Otherwise, I'm told it's my eyes.

Madeira (to drink, not to cook with)
Origami paper
Music
My easy-chair
My hearing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Traveling. I am constantly planning my next excursion.

I'd also say spiritual/philosophical ideas, somewhat Buddhist ideas at that.

And there's always music.
On a typical Friday night I am
Often out with friends, but other nights you'll find me at home watching a movie and listening to music. Of course I'm on here because there are some other ways I'd rather be spending those Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wear hearing aids.

Come again?
You should message me if
you're a girl who doesn't take herself too seriously, is not afraid to be vulnerable, spends a lot of her time laughing, loves music, and craves spontaneous fun.

Or... if you are interested in getting to know me. That trumps a lot!
