My self-summary
I'm a fun-loving fun lover who loves to love fun. I also love to laugh, unlike everyone else.

Total nerd, borderline hipster (ugh), self-taught guitarist, winner of all Catan games, Dota aficionado, amateur life liver.

I'm introverted, but not antisocial. I'm initially shy while I get a feel for new people, but open up fairly quickly. I'm very analytical, which is usually a great thing, but also makes me pretty cynical. I am deeply caring and loyal when it comes to the people who mean a lot to me, but tend to be very selective about the people who receive that privilege.

I am objectively hilarious.
What I’m doing with my life
Approaching maximum entropy. And finishing law school.

I have some pretty nerdy hobbies: video games, board games, card games, any kind of games really. I have also recently dabbled in a brief D&D campaign and found it to be surprisingly fun.

Of late, I have been spending a lot of my free time reading. I decided I need to do more leisure/free-time reading, and have put together a reading list for myself and am proceeding to put a huge dent in it. Mostly going through 20th-century classics that I feel I should read before I die. Invite me to your book club, plz.

Letting strangers on Okcupid determine my sense of self-worth.
I’m really good at
- Being a human jukebox
- Winning arguments on the internet
- Finding humor in the absurdity of most things
- Making people laugh
- Problem/puzzle solving
- Learning new things quickly
- Thinking too much
- Editing anyone's writing except my own
- Not sending you dick pics
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor, my nerdy tendencies, and my similarity to a large cuddly bear.

Sometimes my eyes. They are blue(ish).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: To Kill A Mockingbird, Life of Pi, World War Z, A Song of Ice and Fire, Cat's Cradle, The Stranger, American Gods

Movies: Anchorman, Superbad, I Love You Man, City of God, Lost in Translation, 28 Days Later, Midnight in Paris (note: I have an iffy relationship with movies. There are a lot of movies I have never seen that I feel I ought to watch, suggestions welcome!)

Shows: The Wire, Frisky Dingo, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Modern Family, Archer, The Daily Show, Colbert, True Detective, Battlestar Galactica (the more recent one), Firefly, Community (seasons 1-3)

Music: Too much to list. Tops are probably Belle & Sebastian, Animal Collective, Avalanches, Radiohead, Caribou, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Beatles, Ben Folds (Five), Grizzly Bear, Joanna Newsom, Nick Drake, Andrew Bird

Lately it's been all about Andrew Bird, mostly rediscovering The Mysterious Production of Eggs. Fantastic album.
The six things I could never do without
- The Innernette
- A small group of good friends
- Free HBO GO login from said good friends
- My guitar
- Intellectual stimulation
- Additional pylons
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Witty things to put in my OKC profile to make you love me.

What to say next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a wildly atypical Friday night. Jeez, stop trying to box me in, OkCupid.

In order of probability:
Sometimes I don't leave the house in favor of binging on TV shows or reading.
Sometimes I dick around at a friend's and play board games or do other nerdy shit.
Sometimes I go to a quiet bar and enjoy good company.
Sometimes I go see whatever bands are in town.
Occasionally I take weekend trips and go exploring.
Occasionally I go see a play or do some other artsy-fartsy things.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–30
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
This formulaic online dating profile made you see what a unique snowflake I am.
You understand me when I tell you I have wood for sheep.
You have a show or movie you want to introduce me to.
You have room in your D&D campaign for an interested noob.
You want to discuss R + L = J, or anything along those lines.
You want to geek out about music, and how our tastes are better than everyone else's.
