My self-summary
I believe that if you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the precipitate. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, we might not share much chemistry :)

I'm kind of a studious guy...nerd alert! I guess I just always liked numbers and puzzles. Well, maybe not always ... in third grade I wrote that I wanted to be a football player when I grew up because "I know what to do".

I like music, but never had any musical training growing up. I mostly listen to what's on the radio. Last year I started learning to play the piano. Lately I haven't been so diligent about practicing. But if you have any sort of musical talent, especially the playing the piano or singing, you can easily get me mesmerized and amazed.

I am always up for exercise, be it a walk or a run or playing catch. My favorite type of exercise is playing ultimate frisbee, or even just catch with a frisbee or football.

My best characteristics reveal themselves after you've known me for a while - I am kind, caring, warm, loyal, honest, funny, hard-working, and responsible.

I'm vegetarian (it's okay if you're not) and I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
What I’m doing with my life
I've got it good … living the dream (well, not the football dream). Assistant professor of math. I work at a college in the suburbs of New York during the academic year, but for academic reasons (edit: and frisbee reasons) I'll be spending the summer in the Boston area, so that's why I listed my zip code as such. I went to college around here, and I'm trying to recapture a little of the glory days :)

I'm trying to build my career. Here's (metaphorical) description of the job of a mathematician that inspires me:

"You enter the first room of the mansion and it’s completely dark. You stumble around bumping into the furniture but gradually you learn where each piece of furniture is. Finally, after six months or so, you find the light switch, you turn it on, and suddenly it’s all illuminated. You can see exactly where you were. Then you move into the next room and spend another six months in the dark. So each of these breakthroughs, while sometimes they’re momentary, sometimes over a period of a day or two, they are the culmination of, and couldn’t exist without, the many months of stumbling around in the dark that precede them.”
The first things people usually notice about me
Since I got my end-of-term student evaluations back today, let me use those instead. The first thing most students mentioned is that I am very nice. A couple of students said I seem a little nervous sometimes. Those two things would probably be your impression after the first date, too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like reading nonfiction books about psychology or relationships. Latest one: "The Science of Happily Ever After: What really matters in the quest for enduring love"

Books (besides work related books): I enjoy reading about science, medicine, and psychology. Favorites include the Elegant Universe, Gifted Hands, The Anatomy of Hope, Complications, a General Theory of Love, Flow, How the Mind Works, One Renegade Cell.

movies: her, oceans eleven, italian job, sneakers, home alone,

music: mostly soft-rock, pop, 80s, and a little bit of country. Adele, Florence and the Machine, Passenger, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Sara Bareilles, Demi Lovato, Luke Bryan, but I fall in love with specific songs more so than artists. I love to quote song lyrics. I like listening to covers by amateurs on youtube.

food: I am a bit of a picky eater in that I try to eat healthfully, and am vegetarian (but you don't have to be).
The six things I could never do without
my sister, music, math, H-O-H (there is supposed to be a 104 degree angle at the O), hope. That's five. Number six could be you. But you know, no pressure :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
personal growth, and what things can I do to achieve it.

Gratitude. I think the way to a great life is to always be thankful for what I have in the moment.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Dogs are some of the best people I know.

For me, looking up at the night sky is a humbling experience. I look up and think about the vastness of the universe, the incredible age of the stars, how unbelievable it is that man has not only set foot on the moon but also opened a Starbucks there :) ... It all fills me with wonder, makes me feel insignificant but also makes me remind myself how fortunate I am to be alive, and young and healthy, and have food, shelter, a sense of security, a job I love, and wonderful family and friends, and to enjoy and cherish all those blessings. Life is good.

You are caring and kind ... yeah, that would be a good start.

You made it this far. Clearly you are patient and dedicated. Or just really good at skimming or scrolling.
