My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love going to museums, going on hikes, going to concerts, trying new restaurants, cooking entirely new recipes, being a tea snob, watching roller derby, playing trivia, staying in and watching terrible movies, going out and watching terrible movies, trying new craft beers, people watching, making up stories, and, above all, excellent conversations. I'm genuinely interested in knowing more about the people that I interact with--I find the diversity of humanity to be endlessly fascinating. I'll almost certainly ask you a lot of questions the first time we meet up. Sometimes this causes people to say that I don't talk about myself enough. I'm an open book, however, and will blather on about my own life ad nauseam, if you can interrupt me long enough to ask me a few questions in return.

I do my very best to find new and varied things to laugh about, be inspired by, and/or contemplate over each and every day. I like to be well-informed about the goings-on in the world and the interesting and bizarre things that happen all the time. I value the opportunities I have to talk to others who cherish the acquisition of knowledge and the bounty of the world around them, while laughing at it all.

Myers-Briggs says I'm an INFP, and I agree that their description sounds like me in a lot of ways. According to their diagnostic, this makes me "The Idealist," and stipulates that I am "driven to help people and make the world a better place."

TL;DR: if you value intelligence, enjoy a snarky wit, feel connected to a social consciousness, and frequently embrace your dorky side, we'll probably get along.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working as a curator in a small museum. Basically, I'm like Indiana Jones, but with fewer Nazis. I go to the townspeople with precious artifacts from their history and say "This belongs in a museum!" And then I put it in a museum, and tell them how to take care of it. So far, I haven't found a use for a whip or a sweet hat in my line of work, but it's only a matter of time.

Lately I've also been cooking more and more, as part of a quest for a healthier lifestyle. I feel like I'm starting to get better at it, and include some more interesting ingredients. I've made dishes ranging from pumpkin gnocchi to dark chocolate mint truffles to a lentil and bulgur pilaf, as well as many other things. Being in the kitchen relaxes me, and I intend to keep at it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at: being original, expressing myself, wearing khaki pants, leading a group, making everyone feel included, being oblivious, creative solutions, Satanic rituals, summoning Krampus, listening, wearing sunglasses, empathizing, growing patchy facial hair, adapting, maintaining the callipygian ideal, having fun with little money, making mundane activities into adventures, wildly gesticulating, daydreaming, writing, mastication, academia, inventing and promptly forgetting new languages, handling stress, keeping my cool, time-travel, getting things accomplished, defenestration, being in the right place at the right time, and making people laugh.

...Some of those might not be true, but you'd have to get to know me better to learn which ones.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically, probably my height. One friend told me that I "loom" over people, meaning that I "rise before ones' vision with an appearance of great or portentous size," which I think sounds pretty awe-inspiring. Imagine Cthulhu, but handsomer and with fewer tentacles.

In terms of personality, I've been described as witty. I have a vivid imagination and enjoy looking for ways that the world could be far less ordinary than it appears.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Books have been an important part of my life since early childhood. The first book I read was "Goodnight Moon," so it retains a special place in my heart. Current favorite authors include: John Irving, Brandon Sanderson, J.R.R. Tolkien, Kurt Vonnegut, Stephen King, Michael Crichton, Joe Hill, Gillian Flynn, Ken Follett, Neil Gaiman, Alexandre Dumas, George R. R. Martin and many, many others. I'm currently reading Tea Obreht's "The Tiger's Wife."

I also read comic books occasionally.

Movies: I'm currently working my way through the "100 Essential Films" list from the National Society of Film Critics. Some excellent choices that I've watched from the list include: 8 1/2, The Apartment, The 400 Blows, L'Atalante, The Apu Trilogy, All About Eve, and Bringing up Baby. (The list is in alphabetical order, so stay tuned for the exciting movies to come in "C" and beyond!)

I've moved on to the "C" movies and will also recommend "Children of Paradise." It's a ridiculously pretty movie, and you're allowed to act pretentiously for at least a week afterwards if you watch it, because it's French, concerns the theater, and is over 3 hours long.

Shows: The only show I've been watching consistently, week-to-week lately is South Park. I'm also into the new(ish) web-series "Bee and PuppyCat"--it's a weird name for a show, but worth looking up if you like quirky humor.

Music: I've been on a weird music kick lately that has mostly consisted of Scottish pirate metal/Finnish folk metal mixed with the occasional American pop song. Mostly I want to hear lyrics about wenches and mead, but occasionally I just really need to know all about that bass.

Food: I love food. Eating is definitely a big hobby of mine, to the extent that I do it nearly every day. I tend to go to the restaurants nearest my apartment the most, which means Cajun, Thai, Indian, Moroccan, bars, microbrews, that one sushi place I just found out about but is awesome, and fast food if I don't actually want to put on clothes. I also make stuff for myself a lot.

Beer is also a thing that I'm trying to be more into. I know I like dark beer, and hate IPAs, but don't know much more about it than that. Trying new brews is fun, though. My Kroger just instituted a "Make-your-own 6-pack" system, and I've been systematically working my way through all their most expensive beers. $6 supermarket beer is quality stuff.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:

1) Community--In my mind, finding a harmonious relation between yourself, the people you encounter, and your environment is crucial for being at peace with your life.

2) Irreverence--I believe a certain amount of iconoclastic behavior is healthy and necessary to keep the world interesting and innovative. I have frequently been accused of being crass or offensive, but I believe strongly in keeping an open mind and an open dialogue. I dislike the idea that there are some topics that "just shouldn't be talked about;" I'm willing to have a conversation about anything. I do get passionate/heated about certain topics, though, particularly those involving social justice issues.

3) Art--This is a broad category, but generally speaking I think artistic endeavors have the ability to communicate in ways that aren't possible in day-to-day speech. I've found my own connection to this medium through music, but appreciate many kinds of art.

4) Imagination--When life is viewed in the most somber and serious of ways, it can often be boring and stale. I truly value the people who can turn mundane activities like "getting coffee" or "cooking dinner" or "going to work" into fun and uplifting experiences, and strive to do the same in my own life.

5) Curiosity--I'm always interested in exploring different facets of the world, and like to be around other like-minded people. I'm the type who can't go on a Wikipedia article without clicking all the extraneous links, and going on a learning adventure. I love being around people who can teach me something new!

6) Laughter--A day without laughter is a day wasted. I'm professional and mature when the situation calls for it, but at my core I'll always be goofy and socially awkward and quirky. Being around people who can find humor and joy in the world is important to me, even if they come off as cynical assholes as they're expressing it. Maybe especially if they come off as cynical assholes. Most of my friends are cynical assholes. In a good way!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My brain skips around a lot. Occasionally I can achieve moments of hyper-focus where I zero in on something as the hours melt away, but usually it's a slew of random thoughts. Sometimes it's serious things like the tragic state of modern politics, and our country's downfall from the peak of geopolitics. Frequently it's something more mundane, though, like what kind of latte I want or what I should eat for dinner. I also think about the history of small towns a fair amount of the time, because that's what people pay me to do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Right now, I have to drive back from my job on Friday nights. I work and stay near Chicago during the week currently, but come back to Indy for the weekends.

I'm way more exciting on Saturday nights. Most of the time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I sing in the shower. I have impromptu dance parties in my apartment. I make jokes at appropriate and inappropriate times. I dream up stories that I'll never finish. I make faces at myself in the mirror. I try new recipes and always eat the results. I like it when my socks have pictures on them and/or don't match. I know more about Batman than about some of my cousins. I like to find shapes in the clouds. Sometimes I still feel like a child who's just pretending to be an adult. I recognize my limitations, but don't let them stand in my way, and take pride in being the interesting person that I am.
