My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Chris. I'm a non-traditional student at Hampshire (actually taking a semester off while my advisor/god/person/thing is on sabbatical). For now, I'm just working temp stuff until fall semester starts.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I study history and political science, with an emphasis on themes of nationalism, colonialism, and international relations; geographically I focus on the Caucasus and the Middle East. My eventual goal is to go to grad school and maybe work in an archive or museum.

Outside of academic stuff, I'm really into music. I play sax, guitar, and bass, and am learning oboe.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to pretend I'm a rock guitar god, but I'm way too lazy to actually want to live in a van and practice 8 hours a day.

Going on tangents. In addition to being a trivia junkie (when I was little I wanted to be on Jeopardy when I grew up), I've been lucky enough to have some pretty cool experiences, been to awesome places, and seen a lot of interesting stuff.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.

Favorite bands: Coheed and Cambria, Cynic, Mono, Dave Brubek Quartet. If you desperately need to know what I'm listening to, my profile is linked above.

In general, I'll listen to damn near anything, but my favorites tend towards jazz and rock.

I read a lot of history books (and ones about historiography), and way too many journal articles. Usually they're about nationalism or (post)colonialism, and lately I've been reading a lot about subaltern studies.

Fiction: Favorites include Ender's Game, Cryptonomicon, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. I also have a crippling addiction to shitty Dan Brown/David Baldacci type of thrillers.

I really like documentaries. The last few I've really like are Last Days Here, Outrage, and Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Fictional favorites include 12 Monkeys, Pan's Labyrinth, Donnie Darko, Zoolander, Dial M for Murder, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Shows: Archer, Game of Thrones, HIMYM, BSG, Chuck, Midsomer Murders, The Vicar of Dibley

Also, Shakespeare. My favorites are Macbeth (especially the Roman Polanski adaptation), Much Ado About Nothing, and the Tempest (I played Caliban in a stage production in middle school and have been irrationally attached to the play since). Honorable mentions to Romeo and Juliet and Twelfth Night for having the best puns involving slang about genitals in all of English literature. Seriously, Shakespeare had a filthy sense of humor.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A towel
Interesting things to read.
Good food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Schoolwork. So much schoolwork.

Better ways to produce intellectual sounding bullshit (see above).

Why the dryer keeps eating my socks.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably having a few drinks with my friends, at someone's place, or at bar. If not that, there's a pretty good chance I'm doing homework.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I (not so) secretly enjoy watching reruns of Friends.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to grab a beer at the Moan and Dove, or the High Horse. Or have some coffee at Rao's.

You want to make music.

You have book recommendations. Seriously.

You're into esoteric bullshit and liberal arts degrees.
