Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I know exactly who I am. I know what I want out of life. I am
self-sufficient. I love myself. I'm proud to say that I finally
have my shit together.
What I want most out of life right now is simply the Universe. I am
an astrophysics graduate student at the U of M. I spend most of my
days on campus. I drink copious quantities of coffee. When I say I
thirst for knowledge, I'm not joking. I drink that shit for
breakfast (it's in the coffee, obviously). Any opportunity to learn
something new excites me.
I've occasionally been called arrogant or pushy. I've been called
intense. I don't mean to come across that way so I do my best to
moderate myself. I don't mind reminders. In reality, I don't take
things that seriously. I go with the flow but I I'm not afraid to
speak up or speak out.
I value honesty. I don't believe in standard gender roles, yadda
yadda yadda, and all that other progressive shit. Also, I LOVE to
travel. Along with astrophysics, it's my favorite thing in the
whole fucking world.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
What am I doing with my life? Getting a Ph.D. in Astrophysics,
that's what!! I get to look at images from the HUBBLE SPACE
TELESCOPE. Which is pretty swanky -- not gonna lie. Currently I'm
building software that will automatically classify galaxy
morphologies. Machine-learning, baby. I live at the intersection of
astrophysics, statistics, and computer science. It's pretty
That's pretty much where all of my time goes. I don't have normal
"free time" like regular people. I work all day and sometimes all
night. I like what I do so I don't mind the work load. Maybe we get
some coffee, chat a bit, and then we each get some work done?
Sounds like a great time to me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Life. I got that shit on lock down.
Problem solving. I do it for a living.
Driving. You might say it's "aggressive" but I call it "proactive."
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Glasses, of course. I also have a bad case of resting-bitch-face. I
was just born that way! I can't help it.
But when I do smile, watch out -- it's pretty awesome.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love Terry Pratchett and yes, I cried when he died. I read all
kinds of things: sci-fi/fantasy, popular science, history,
"literature". Right now I'm reading James Gleick's The Information.
I LOVE classical music (Dvorak or Prokofiev, anyone?). But I also
get down to all kinds of jams: funk, swing, weird electro shit,
classic rock. Lately I've been on a Mr. Scruff/Wax Tailor/Beats
I can't pick a favorite movie because I expect very little from
them -- only that they entertain me -- and many, many things
entertain me. Kung fu, cheesy sci fi, blockbuster/action
powerhouses, thoughtful indie flix... I'll watch just about
anything. Except Tree of Life. That movie sucked.
And don't even get me started on food. I love ALL FOOD. I will try
anything once. ANYTHING.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether I'll get enough work done this week to ensure that my
adviser doesn't yell at me.
Daydreaming about my upcoming trip to Europe this summer.
How awesome life is. Living is pretty cool. Probably my favorite
thing to do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Writing code (Python for life!). That's cool, right?
Or getting my groove on at the Hipshaker!
You should message me if

You're a statistician -- stats is seriously sexy shit. Let's argue
the merits of Frequentist vs. Bayesian... (not really. This is my
dry humor cropping up.)
Honestly, you should NOT message me if you're just going to say
"Hi" or "You're super hot". I haven't responded to a single one yet
and I don't plan on starting anytime soon. I just want to talk to
some REAL fucking people. Is that so hard?
