My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Now with less content! I vacillate on what the ideal length of the summary and how thorough should be. This is probably the fifth rewrite.
With regards to school/work I am competitive and fairly driven. I like what I do and feel compelled to be the best I can at it. Solving difficult problems is very rewarding to me and I enjoy working in the lab.
In contrast, I'm not competitive in my relationships with family and friends. That sort of thing doesn't make sense to me because that's not the point of friends and family. I tend to follow the lead of others and go along with the flow. I try to be a good friend, family member, etc. and especially avoid not helping/being there by saying I'm too busy. This can get tricky being in grad school but I think everyone is satisfied. I think a lot of people write me off as an automaton that only does its grad school job. It's not that, I just like to have some separation between work and personal life.
Besides school, I spend a lot of time coaching fencing. I kind of fell into it. Working with kids is not as bad as I thought it would be. As for outdoors stuff I do a bit of hiking, camping, fishing, kayaking, gardening, and archery (I shoot bales of hay). I'm planning a trip in the Sangre de Cristo mountains in Colorado in June to climb one of the fourteeners. My longest trip was ten days in New Mexico and it was great. Being out in the woods with forced isolation from all the distractions we have is really nice and I wish I could get more of it.
The people I end up liking the most are those that I butt heads with initially.

So for literature I have enjoyed:
People in the Summer Night, Confessions of a Mask, The Sound of the Mountain, The Master of Go, Sound of the Waves, Tales of the Heike, Burnt Njal's Saga, most things by Thomas Pynchon are a few. The following are books that have been really influential or maybe just articulated things I couldn't put in words: Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, The Prophet by Khalil Gibran, and the Book of Five Rings by Musashi. I don't buy into the whole stoic thing because I'd rather have all emotions than none at all. Instead, the idea of accepting things you don't control seems pretty spot on.
I love Moby Dick. I read the book in about three days because I couldn't put it down.
Besides all of this I'm on a slow campaign through the Nobel prizewinners in literature. Some of them are good and some are pretty bad.
The best book I have ever read is easily With Fire and Sword.

Buffalo Soldiers, Full Metal Jacket, Moonrise Kingdom, Amelie, The Big Lebowski, Conan the Barbarian, Dune.

It varies and I go through phases.
Zappa, Captain Beefheart, Wagner, Shostakovich, Mussorgsky, Prokofiev, Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Radiohead, and Huey Lewis and the News. Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor. In '87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself.

That's a joke.

I'll eat just about anything.

I look at some of these profiles and I think to myself, "I need to hire a web designer and a publicist".
