My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I rather suck at describing myself, so I asked a few friends to chip in some adjectives. Here's the list: intellectual, motivated, classy, articulate, witty, satirical, kind, generous, talented, strong-willed, charismatic, committed, loyal, compassionate, cool for a nerd (or cool AND a nerd, depending on whom you ask), passionate, funny, sensitive, introspective, full of integrity, open-minded, a believer in equality and social justice, loving, good listener, loquacious, eloquent, and "an all-around swell guy."

I'm not sure that says anything about me other than that I have awesome friends, but maybe that fact itself says something meaningful about me.

I refuse to take myself too seriously. I am indeed a nerd of many stripes; I'm also a mostly unapologetic romantic and an entertainer. I've got big plans and a good life full of amazing people; I'd like to share them with someone special.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As of the fall semester, I'll be a full-time grad student (MA psych) at Rutgers-Camden - in the meantime, I also give week-long alcohol/drug education programs to schools all over the world.

I'm trying to leave the world a little better than I found it - and enjoy it in the process.

The long version:
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing, public speaking, wit (particularly of the sarcastic variety), teaching, learning, people-watching, friendship, seeing all sides of things. Remembering song lyrics. Hugging.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The Afro. It's up there.

UPDATE: well, now the Afro is dreads, and I have no idea what people are gonna notice first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Song of Ice & Fire, Lord of the Rings. Anything by Gaiman or Clancy. Ender's Game. A Prayer for Owen Meany. Hitchhiker's Guide, natch. Nonfiction-wise: Nerd Do Well, Modern Romance, and I'm about to start in on The Brain That Changes Itself. I have read (I think) the complete works of Brené Brown and listened to most of her lectures.

Movies: Good sci-fi/fantasy - particularly Whedon and Abrams. Anything Sorkin. Anything that makes me laugh without resorting to poop jokes or makes me think without wanting to tear my hair out afterward (I'm looking at you, David Lynch). I love the classics: Philadelphia Story and Affair to Remember, North by Northwest, Dr. Strangelove, Network, The French Connection...

Shows: Orange is the New Black, procedurals with a good hook, more Whedon, more Abrams, more Sorkin. Anything with a great ensemble.

I love all forms of music. My favorites are the ones I can sing along to: R&B (particularly Motown-era), musical theater, gospel, classical chorales, opera, classic rock, neo-soul. I also listen to instrumental classical and jazz, but anyone nearby is subjected to me whistling, humming, and scatting the melodies. Hip-hop - the older the better, except for "Basketball" by Kurtis Blow which remains the absolute worst hip-hop song of all time.

I'm kind of a picky eater, but my tastes are simple.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My best friends
Laughter and tears
Bonus round: Cards Against Humanity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Politics, spirituality, Batman, and the teenage brain.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Eating late dinner with friends in Pasadena and laughing loud enough to annoy the other diners.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have read more than one romance novel.

you either are or would enjoy hanging with any of the following: a nerd, a thinker, someone with a ridiculously diverse group of friends and interests, a great entertainer and entertainee.

I'm looking for a partner with a good sense of humor about life and about herself, with passions, goals, a beautiful mind and a beautiful spirit.
