My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
person who gets bored with herself and changes so frequently that this profile can't keep up with it. i guess by now around %70 is up-to-date and i haven't analyzed my new version well enough yet to describe it here. always. i'm having fun dealing with me, though. no complaints whatsoever.

disclaimer: so in this edition i let myself loose even though i usually try to avoid coming off as a blabbermouth at first sight. feel free not to read through.

there has been some concern about me taking myself too seriously (solely based on my profile, mind you). let me explicate on that: i'm an organism with a lifespan of 70-or-so years as a member of a species that is 200.000 years old on a 4.5 billion year-old planet in a 13 billion year-old universe. the proportion of 70 to any of these numbers is how seriously i take myself in comparison to the relevant larger construct, and the larger construct is always there.

i find cataloguing one's tastes and political views upon first encounter (as in your profile) quite ridiculous. it imparts the feeling you're not much more than, or are parochially attached to, your current tastes and beliefs. it's a waste of lifetime if those don't evolve, it's a waste of brains if you fail to see that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
trying to solve puzzles, being curious about things, feeding my curiosity, feeding my senses nice things, socializing. i also continuously yearn for a profound experience. nature, art, dancing and human interaction are my favorite places to look for it but not quite enough. believe me, i've tried "that". biochemistry is a bitch.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
apparently making others feel good around me, cooking, solving puzzles, giving others what they seem to think is good advice that i never get myself to follow, being bewildered by the universe at the tiniest and most mundane cue like raindrops forming staircases on a slow train's window and the crackling sound my office walls make as the wind from the window inflates the room ever so slightly, taking exactly the ideal amount of ginger and soy sauce to go with my sushi. i'm also bad at a lot of things, chiefly those i don't care about being good at.
The first things people usually notice about me

once was told:
that " 'curvy' is not necessarily a euphemism for 'fat'.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
so this is where we do the name-dropping.

books: Auster, Vonnegut, Rushdie, Eco, Nabokov, Calvino, Kafka, Marquez, and too many to mention in my native language. recently i've started reading more non-fiction. ♥ Jared Diamond. happy to hear about books others read.

movies: Wong, Kim, Lynch, Kubrick, Park, Gilliam, Miyazaki, Chaplin, Kitano, Coen Brothers, Ceylan, Allen, Linklater, Gondry, Kaufman, Medem, Weerasethakul. but i don't say no to good hollywood that comes my way (which is what comes my way lot more often)

music, latest edit: i notice a musical pseudoelitism with a lot of Berliners. forgive me if i don't feel like subjecting my taste to the scrutiny of potential ignorant knowitalls. ask me if you're intrigued.

Shows: a lot of comedies, only a few dramas. i think three of my all time favorites must be coupling (uk), my name's earl, and 30 rock. too bad they're all over. i don't think any dramas i've ever followed deserve to be here.

food: strictly anything although i'm trying to limit my mammal intake
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
what else is there one cannot do without other than water, food, shelter and human contact?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
biochemistry is a bitch. neurochemistry is an asshole (and since it's a subset of biochemistry it's really a bitch-asshole). what else? should i carry around a heavy bag with all my stuff for the whole day or climb 5 flights of altbau stairs to start over for the evening? and why people have abandoned good old happiness just for the sake of deconstructing the notion and don't notice anymore when it comes banging at their door. poor people for that. (oh no not me, but then i suffer, too, because there isn't anyone around to be happy with anymore.)

as i was editing this the last time i got an unexpected skype call from a senior colleague. what could be so urgent that this big shot is calling me unannounced? i was scared but of course i had to pick it up. first i see nothing on the screen with background noises. was i pocket-dialed? then i see two little blond headtops. i say 'hallo?' and the heads burst into giggles. i do that a couple more times just to watch that happen. i ask 'wie geht's' (which is pretty much the end of my spoken german competence) and they giggle even more. so these are my colleague's kids who dialed me as they were playing with daddy's computer. their mom arrived. we did some small talk and hung up.

i had to write this down. just to tie it with the topic at hand, i also think a lot about chance encounters, 'home', being in other people's shoes, 5 year-old phone pranks, having a little brother.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
not alone. many more fun things you can do when not alone. discuss.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
as a child i used to think my feet were prettier than others', but now i think the reverse.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
A. dating quota: you are able to sing, dance, laugh from deep within and incite such laughter, rock a suit like a bourgeois while being unwasteful and humble like a monk inside, have a green thumb, have a few years' worth of surface conversational material in stock and endless deep ones and curiosity on a form of art, science, philosophy (preferrably all), have something else that is truly admirable. Have I mentioned that the dating quota is very selective?

B. new friends quota: you have some of the above, can carry out a decent conversation over a few drinks and let go at the end of the evening (dude I'm having problems with this).
