Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born and raised in Tulsa. Got sick of Oklahoma and went to a
decent school up in the North East to get an education. I found
that it was far too cold for me there and decided to move back to
the South's western fringes. Boy was that a mistake. Now I've
decided to move out West to get some more awesome experience.
I wish they would offer Unitarian Universalism as a religion type.
Or Humanist. Or something to that extent.
As far as what I'm interested in. Biology, Linguistics, Computer
Science, Technology, Books on the subjects mentioned before.
Economics can be a good time.
Trying to be more active, I tried paragliding this summer. Boy what
a rush. And kayaking. That was fun, but that was back in Arkansas,
and I don't have a boat here (yet?). Since I've moved to
California, I've tried speed skating and martial arts (again).
Nothing like a good race and hand to hand combat to get the ole
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, I've since finished paying out the ridiculous cost of a
college education at an elite university. I'm not mostly confused
about what to do with my career and my new found free income.
I'm trying to be more active. Right now I'm going to a trainer at
the gym. In the past I've done martial arts (Kali/Jeet Kun Do),
indoor short track speed skating, and kayaking. Each is worth a
try, but with the trainer I'm starting to grow out some muscle
groups so I'm pretty happy.
I’m really good at

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am usually a fairly quiet person. I enjoy listening and watching
others more than being the center of attention.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books are always helpful. My main genres are usually fantasy and
science fiction. Heinlein, Niven, George RR Martin, Stephenson,
Orson Scott Card, list goes on and on. I enjoy the stray
pop-economics book and linguistics book from time to time.
Movies are not quite as fun as books, but I still watch quite a few
of them. Standard schtuff really. If you can remember a movie
called "Buying the Cow." I enjoy the younger dry humor/sarcastic
actors a bit. You know Zooey Deschanel. To some extent Joseph
Gordon-Levitt. It is always fun to see.
Music is also a good time. I'm dipping more and more into the indie
musicland but I'm having a hard time finding cool and awesome
bands. If you can recommend a few that'd be super awesome. I'll
share the names of the bands I've found that are equally awesome. I
have quite a bit of world music as well. Arabic, French, Japanese,
Food. As much as I'd like to be a vegetarian, I just can't do it. I
eat very small amounts of beef nowadays. My main poison is chicken.
As for types of food. World food is always good. I can't wait for
Thanksgiving and Christmas to roll by so I can get awesome and
delicious food from my family. Mm mm.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How best to make things awesome!
Why I should be exercising right now. Martial arts and speed
skating make me want to condition more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
chatting online with college friends, going to a movie, or perhaps
playing around on the computer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I had a deathly fear of escalators as a child. I still cringe a bit
when i step on one.

Also! I'm new-ish to the bay area and I'd love to meet new people
in general. Perhaps some adventuring is in order. I love trying new
things, but trying new things solo kind of blows.
