My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm highly empathetic and interested in humans, so libertarians and anyone else who suffers from hyperindividualism will probably find me naive and annoying. Among my better qualities, I am curious as a motherfucker and lucky enough to have a brain that can store and sort the crazy stuff I try to jam in there.

Probably my most significant character trait is my addiction to learning - as an example, in the past year, I have figured out how to play the piano, create Arduino-based devices, and how to make kombucha and vegan yogurt (from homemade almond milk). Many of these things I jump into because I am trying to figure out how to expose my students to all the awesome things the world has to offer - and what better way to teach someone to love learning than to be passionately curious yourself?

(Note: Because I am a teacher, many of my answers to the sexy questions are private. Message me if you really wanna know how I'd answer something.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a recovering scientist / now science teacher in a charter school. Choosing to help kids understand their world was the best decision of my life, but I'd be lying if I didn't admit that the grind of teaching has adverse effects on my social life... as well as my ability to trust that inequality can be mended. And yes, I have very conflicted but nuanced views on working at a charter school, but that's an in-person conversation topic.

Mostly my hobbies have dwindled to biking, reading non-fiction, and trying to keep myself alive. The list of things I wish weren't my hobbies includes constantly refreshing Metafilter and xkcd and spending too much money on coffee.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
science, knowing a little about a lot of different things so I can relate to everyone about something they care about, not sweating the small stuff, making the best of a bad situation, creating pungent farts
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wish I could say my dry wit, my desire to do right, or my broad base of knowledge on a multitude of subjects... but honestly it's probably that I wear a 34D.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Kind, thoughtful friends
Bikeable weather
Intellectual stimulation (aka good books/movies/TV)
About an hour of introvert time daily
A reasonable amount of routine
Stuff that can photosynthesize
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

What are my responsibilities as a member of the global upper class

What will help each of my students to become better learners and more empathetic humans
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It varies. Friday is more of a recovery night for me, so I'd rather have friends over for a homemade pizza party, board games, and a movie (I have a projector!) than go out tearing it up. But if there is soul music somewhere, count me in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Seeing "Bring it On" inspired me to try high school cheerleading.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You wanna know someone who wouldn't think twice about getting wrist-deep in a box of earthworms. Extra bonus points if you live in West Town/Humboldt area, near my workplace and home.

You shouldn't message me if you messaged >25 other girls/boys today. You also shouldn't message me if you believe in either astrology (because we have enough evidence to draw a conclusion) or the existence of a fair meritocracy, or talk about your ex-girlfriends disrespectfully.
