My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I spend my time playing make-believe with crazy people (theater). I'm a nerd and an artist. I love hanging out with friends, but I also love being alone and exploring books, music, and movies/TV.

Specialties include:
-extroverted introversion
-cooking very well, but not often enough

I'm looking to find someone in the same place as me: Not quite an adult yet, but working towards finding that thing that makes you finally grow up and crystalize into something more concrete.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in dark theaters for a living, designing sound systems, composing, sound designing...
For fun I read, cycle, plot the demise of tourists who take up too much sidewalk, and discuss the nature of how much working in theater sucks/rocks (depending on the day) with my friends.
I'm not a happy-go-lucky optimist; I tend more towards the sardonic-pragmatic.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
finding hole in the wall restaurants that other people pass by without a second glance.
walking long distances through the city when I'm bored.
spraining my ankles.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Beard, guaged ears, sometimes I'm the loud guy in the room, and if I'm not I'm probably being rather quiet chatting with one or two people.
If I'm walking down the street with my headphones on I'm either looking sort of sullen, which unfortunately is my "neutral" face, see this (watch to the end for the male description):

or awkwardly laughing out loud to the podcasts in my ears (I'm a BIG fan of storytelling podcasts - I think that the current renaissance of oral storytelling is fantastic).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
1984, Animal Farm, Brave New World, Margaret Atwood (sensing a theme?), Douglas Adams, Douglas Coupland, Neil Gaiman, Vonnegut, The Giver, Harry Potter series (yes I AM a 31 year old man), Dark Tower series. I also read a decent amount of plays for work.

Movies, I see very few movies, but if I had to pick one stand out movie from my life it would be American Beauty.

Shows, Archer, How I Met Your Mother, Parks and Recreation, X-Files, Six Feet Under.

Music, a lot, all the time. Generally my tastes tend towards dance bandy, electronica, indie rock, americana. Lately there's the new alt-j, also been a lot of Sarah Jarosz, Elbow, sElf, Temples, Tame Impala, and St. Vincent. Little bit of retrospective love to Harvey Danger right now.

Food: anything, really. There are only a few dishes I've ever said no to. After a long break I tried tripe again the other day at a Thai restaurant. I was more tolerant to it than I had been last time, but it's still not my favorite.
Also, carnitas.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
good music, good headphones/in-ears, good shoes and socks for walking, backpack, and water.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The next gig.

How to not ruin music that I love by listening to it too much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
No such thing. Working, seeing a show, at a bar, to bed early. Any combination of up to two of those.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In High School I once publicly cried at a Cuba Gooding Jr. movie and was made fun of by my female friends for years. Fifteen years later I worked with him for a few months and told him the story, he signed the DVD. I'd like to think I won.

this makes you smile:

you can make me laugh, like gut busting inappropriate dirty joke laugh.

You speak some nerdy language, be it programming, music, sound, Esperanto, machine code, etc.

You don't foresee wanting children. Big thing for me. Sorry, not my cup of tea.
