My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
One time a guy asked me on our first date if I was sure that kissing on the first date was a bad idea, and I told him that my sample size was too small for me to be sure.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Senior year of college. I'm studying American education research and policy, working on a thesis, and spending less time looking for a post-grad job than I should be.

I'm addicted to exercise, and I also enjoy making music (on oboe, piano, and/or voice), writing, cooking/baking, going for walks, and reading.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cookies, peach pies (and homemade crust), butternut squash ravioli, pesto, stir-fry sauce, and most things that involve chocolate, caramel, and/or mascarpone.

(Seriously, I've been working on my chocolate-chip cookie recipe since I was in elementary school. It's gotten quite good.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I recently read The Art of Fielding and loved it. My absolute favorite novel is Marjorie Morningstar. Other stand-outs for me in the fiction realm are A Prayer for Owen Meany and anything by John Green, Philip Roth, or Milan Kundera. Non-fiction favorites include The Price of Inequality, Freefall, and Being Wrong--stay tuned for whether Capital in the Twenty-First Century gets added to this list. (As a side note, I count social science research articles as pleasure reading, and I like finding interesting articles about education, health, and environmental science, as well as other random topics like how language structure impacts savings behavior.)

Movies: The Breakfast Club.

Shows: Buffy is far and away my favorite TV show, probably followed by Parks and Rec. Also liked Dollhouse, Firefly, pre-Moffat Doctor Who, and Gilmore Girls.

Music: I will listen to pretty much anything if it comes recommended, but I largely only listen to music when I'm working out, cooking, or doing housework, so my Songza and Spotify favorites (which I use much more often than my iTunes library) lean towards pop/rock. Current favorites include Noah and the Whale, We Were Astronauts, and miscellaneous pop songs I dance to while I make dinner--Karmin, Tegan and Sara, Parachute, etc. (I literally have a Spotify playlist titled "Dancing in the Kitchen").

Food: I like things with surprising combinations of flavors; I'm a big fan of dishes that mix sweet and savory tastes (read: I really enjoy putting fruit in non-fruit salads). I'm pretty much always happy with Chinese, Japanese, Indian, or Thai food...and most of the things I cook for myself.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, music, exercise, chocolate, tea.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Education, politics, economics, grammar, the limits of human perception, what I'm going to do when I graduate, how to ask people on friend-dates, and how to make food more interesting.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with a few friends, which more often than not also involves baking. Or, if I can't find anyone to hang out with: watching Netflix, doing reading for a class, pretending to do reading for a class while really watching Netflix, baking by myself, or sleeping.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You enjoy going to orchestra concerts, you read xkcd, you like pillow talk about politics and psychology, you have a long list of things that would be true about your ideal education system and you want to hear mine, or you've read (and loved) a John Green novel.

Or if you just want to say hello. That works too.
