My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an ex-Southern Baptist political junkie from Texas. Moved up here a year ago for grad school (sociology), still don't really know a lot of people, trying to meet more friends. I love this city and all the people in it. Well, most of the time. I do miss being able to wear shorts in November.

My life philosophy is you can either laugh or you can cry but laughing is more fun. And the problem with self-awareness is if you don't have it, you don't know it. And that bullshit never truly dies, it just turns into new and more annoying kinds of bullshit. OK, I guess I have three philosophies.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working part-time at Loyola. I tell people I'm a Research Fellow because that's my official title and it sounds a lot more impressive than 'intern'. Currently about to start classes at Northwestern so I can get some pre-reqs to apply to med school - I'm an aspiring neurologist.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking - one day I just got fed up with eating bachelor chow and decided to learn to cook. I cook a lot of Indian and Thai food - I like it spicy.

Talking about stuff I find really interesting but is useless in everyday life. I can tell you who Pierre Bourdieu is or why Otto von Bismarck was important. This goes double for politics - I think I use the part of the brain most guys use for sports for politics instead. I can really clean up on trivia night though...

I also give killer book recommendations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My dashing good looks, my sterling sense of humor, my immense intelligence, and of course my impeccable sense of modesty?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
TV - I generally watch TV shows only when I'm working out, but recently Breaking Bad has become my new obsession. I also like to watch Archer, the Wire, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Mad Men, Futurama, the Simpsons, and the Colbert Report.

Movies - The Blues Brothers is my favorite film of all time. Other faves include Dr. Strangelove, Trainspotting, Fight Club, the Producers, Blazing Saddles, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Groundhog Day, the Butterfly Effect, and Pan's Labyrinth.

Books - Now that I'm out of grad school I finally have time for pleasure reading again. I read a fair amount of non-fiction (lots of history and sociology, some psychology and philosophy) and fiction (sci fi and fantasy mostly - out and proud geek here). Some of my favorite writers are Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Jared Diamond, Kim Stanley Robinson, China Mieville, George RR Martin, Joseph Heller, Dave Barry, Michel Foucault, and Isaac Asimov.

Music- If you don't like (or at least tolerate) Pink Floyd we may have problems getting along. Other favorite artists: Radiohead, Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire, Nirvana, Aphex Twin, the Beatles, Daft Punk, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol, the Doors, Caribou, Bill Baird, Johnny Cash, Portishead
