Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a 26 year old dude born and raised in the Chicago burbs.
I'm kind of dualist when it comes to pretty much everything. I can
be totally laid back or super intense. I could be super logical and
dry or empathic and warm (equal parts both at work). I could be
lazy as hell or diligent, ambitious, and harder working than James
Brown (bonus points if you get that reference). It all just depends
on what's going, who I'm with, where I am, etc.
More generally, my philosophy is that it's OK to be wrong (and it's
actually a good thing sometimes) as long as you admit it and try to
find the right answer/path/whatever.
Also, I am brilliant, hilarious, and humble ;)
(sorry for the emoticon...)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I finally got an awesome job working in clinical psych and am
currently honing my skills to move on to grad school in the next
year or so.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I think a good way to summarize me and my interests is the old
adage "Jack of all trades, master of none." I'm pretty adventurous
when it comes to trying new things and like to learn and experience
almost everything. Even if I'm not very good at them or end up not
liking them, I'll pretty much give everything a chance.
As far as what I'm "really good at," pretty much anything to do
with psychology, science, research, and other nerdy stuff. I'm
probably best at everything to do with clinical psych (which is a
big part of why I love my job), but I try to leave that at work
because it can complicate things when it comes friends and family.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not sure.
I think that the first thing a person notices about you says more
about them than about you.
I'll eventually post a pic, so message me what you notice first
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books (er, authors):
Mark Twain , Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Terry Pratchett ,
Vonnegut, Philip K Dick, Jon Stewart ("Naked Pictures of Famous
People" is hilarious), Jon Ronson, Sean Carrol, Howard Zinn,
I'll listen to almost anything so I don't really know that I have
any "favorites" but I really like Tom Waits, David Bowie, and
Operation Ivy. Julia Nunes is pretty cool, too.
I'm pretty adventurous with food as well but I think my favorite
styles fall into Italian and Japanese cuisine. Maybe I'll try more
German stuff so I can get the Axis Powers trifecta.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My cell phone
2. Internet access
3. My car
4. My Dogs
5. My family
6. The Lazarus pits
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-How to get into my top grad school pick.
-What the hell my patients at work are thinking (both from a
clinical perspective and "WTF?!?").
-What would happen if the TARDIS went 88 miles per hour
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends on what's going on at work, how lazy I feel, what my
friends are doing, etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't swim (very well).
Don't judge me.
