My self-summary
I'm Charlie. I'm not very outgoing, less of a social butterfly and more of a social caterpillar.
What I’m doing with my life
I am working on my Master's in International Relations with a concentration in U.S. Foreign Policy toward China. Then it's off to a life of service with the United States Government (or whoever else will take me).

In personal terms, I'm trying to master Mandarin and lose some of this excess flab. Some goals are proceeding better than others...
I’m really good at
I'm so good at trivia nobody will play Trivial Pursuit with me anymore...
The first things people usually notice about me
My mustache has a gap in the middle. It has always been this way, and it looks like I will be sporting an inverse-Chaplin for the rest of my life.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Frank Herbert's Dune, Isaac Asimov's Foundation Trilogy, most of Philip K. Dick's works but especially Ubik, A Scanner Darkly, and Man in the High Castle. Everything and I mean EVERYTHING by Neal Stephenson (anyone who tells you Anathem is bad is a LIAR). The Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin (R+L=J dammit). Nobody doesn't love Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett. Stanislaw Lem's His Master's Voice. Foucalt's Pendulum.

As for non-fiction: The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers by Paul Kennedy, The End of Poverty by Jeff Sachs, and Jervis's Perception and Misperception in International Politics have probably shaped my worldview the most. White House Burning, despite the inflammatory title, is actually worth a read re: modern politics.

Movies: I am a certified James Bond junkie (except for Roger Moore's stuff, bleh). Also: Children of Men, Lord of the Rings, Monty Python's works, Die Hard, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Space Mutiny (but only the MST3K riff), Burn After Reading, Highlander (There can be only One!).

TV: Law & Order, Battlestar Galactica, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Firefly, Archer, The Office, 30 Rock, Mythbusters, Top Gear, Red Dwarf, Star Trek (except Voyager), The Spoony Experiment (not strictly speaking a TV show but it fits best here), Monk, Psych, is Boardwalk Empire still on? (I haven't gotten HBO in a few years), the Walking Dead,

Music: Honestly, I'm not much of a music person. I like to have something on in the background sometimes, but I'm just not *in* to it. The last album I bought was a collection of Central Asian folk music that came with I book I bought.

Food:Pretty unsophisticated. I would probably try to eat a fossil is there was enough mozzarella on it.
The six things I could never do without
Air: ~3 minutes
Water: ~3 days
Food: ~couple of weeks
Being a smartass:
(Man, I thought I was so funny when I wrote that)

Okay, for realsies:
1. My cat Daisy. She keeps me grounded, and is a good listener.
2. Something to read. If I finish my book on the bus I'll panic and start reading the bus schedule. If I use your bathroom I will read your shampoo bottles.
3. The internet. My computer imploded recently and it was stressful not being able to go online and find out what was happening in the world this instant.
4. My friends. They are few in number but we are strong in our bonds.
5. Public Transit.
6. Libraries: books are expensive, yo. Also: database access.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to accomplish my goals from where I am in my life right now.
Current events, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region.
The discourse-analysis and constructivist approaches to studying international relations.
How awesome the future can be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Prepping for D&D night. Catching up on that week in TV. Catching up on that week's Youtube cat videos. Settling down in my comfy chair with a good book.
Possibly marathoning a session of Europa Universalis III.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am super duper insecure, and place more stock in what other people think of me than I should. I'm working on it.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–27
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if want a...what's the inverse of a Sugar Daddy? Parasite? (This is a joke making fun of how poor I am. I don't actually expect you to give me stuff.) think "read any good books lately?" is a good conversation starter (give me a break, it's all I've got!) (This is not a joke. Seriously, ctrl+f "social caterpillar".)
