My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Southern transplant, lawyer, introvert (though the fun kind), urban planning/real estate geek. Natural habitat: coffee shop with newspaper. I've been told I am "chill," but that word is kind of ridiculous.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Putting on layers, then lawyering and/or seeking out interesting people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Deciding where to eat/drink/see music and navigating Philly to get there; defending much-maligned Philly institutions (SEPTA, my former employer L&I, and even PPA - everyone deserves an advocate); scrabble; taking things down a notch.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: Neutral Milk Hotel! In general, my tastes run mostly indie though I love seeing jazz/brass band shows as well and am up for most anything. I am always peppering friends with info about shows. Take the pressure off them - come see some music with me!

TV-wise, I probably like what you like, as in the AMC/HBO usual suspects. Currently bingeing on orphan black. It's a fun one!

I'm hugely into Asian food, dating from a stint at a Japanese restaurant in a previous life. I guess I'm into food in general, especially of the comfort variety.

Reading: I read a ton of news - and try especially to stay up on local goings-on. Also, Ta-Nehisi Coates is the man

I'm big into podcasts as well (nerd alert!). 99% invisible, anyone?

TL;DR. Hopefully you don't hate everything I just listed.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
coffee (preferably iced), cheap ethnic food,
cats (preferably cared for by others, but I'll probably crack eventually and get one), friends, alone time, and the occasional visit to New Orleans, my home for 7 years. I'm committed to Philly now, and we’ve both moved on, but man that city is great.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make cities better.
How to balance earnestness and humor.
How strange it is to be anything at all.
