My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Chicago transplant to the East Bay, history nerd, (reformed) political junkie, football fan (both varieties), lost soul of a writer, joyful observer, homebody, someone who's not afraid to dance, aspiring cook, vigorous but respectful debater, rooter for the underdog, thoughtful and attentive listener, a near indomitable Mariokart 64 racer (Toad FTW!), advocate for use of parenthesis and elipses...and frequent schadenfreude vampire (but only about things that are truly of little consequence, otherwise me finishing this by telling you I'm an INFP might seem incongruous).

Oh, and there's always money in the banana stand...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've settled into working in home health care. It can be demanding at times, but I take value from the work that I do and the direct value it has on someone's life, as opposed to any other number of things I could be doing.

On the personal front, after dealing with figuring out a lot about myself during my twenties, the past couple years I've been looking more at what's ahead and deciding to try to find a partner to move forward with. Not there yet (lol, obviously?) but I've figured out more about myself and what I'm looking for in someone else going forward. In no particular rush to get anywhere though, trying to just be patient and enjoy the ride.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Observing life around me and attempting to both appreciate it's little nuances and the beauty found in them, as well as trying to produce questions from those observations that can hopefully amuse my brain (ideally of others as well).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair, for which I am increasingly thankful as I get older. LoL tough luck to the balding, I weep no tears for you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books- I'm a history nerd, so I've read a bunch of varying histories, biographies, and political books. Lots of articles and current events type stuff; understanding the world around me as best I can is kind of important to me. I haven't read much in the way of novels since college, not as much my interest.

Movies- I like films from most genres, from silly comedies, to drama, quirky documentaries, sci fi, action, etc., but my favorite film of all-time has to be Dr. Strangelove. Too many to get into listing.

TV- Arrested Development, Parks & Rec., Freaks & Geeks, Wilfred, Doctor Who, Breaking Bad, Louie, a bunch of the HBO programming (The Wire being an all-time fav), Orange is the New Black, The Daily Show, etc.

Music- rock, jazz, indie, funk, soul, blues, old school hip-hop, and bluegrass. Used to go to concerts all the time, but much less so these days. I'm getting so old (sigh). Also, too many to get into listing.

Food- I'm open to a lot of things, but being out here I have been able to learn and come to a new appreciation for what good sushi can actually taste like.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- I must have good music while I'm driving.
- A really good, cold beer on a hot day is damn near essential.
- Seeing my little niece's wide, mischievous, break the adorable-o-meter, 10,000 watt smile.
- The Internet/Netflix/HBOGo
- The allure of really good food.
- Coming up with bogus excuses and/or exploiting loopholes to get out of fully filling out numbered lists.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People, and observing the odd choices and behaviors that we silly apes find ourselves falling into.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking something good to eat, then just relaxing, and watching Netflix (the question is typical, I'm not going to front, I'm getting old and boring at times). I'm always open to suggestions however...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was going into 8th grade, my parents had me switch to this private Catholic school. I was set to be the only new kid in my class, and I knew a bunch of them had probably been together since kindergarten or soon thereafter, so I knew going in that it would be socially difficult for me coming in. So the first day I get on my stupid uniform and get driven to school. We pull up to the school/parking lot where all the kids were playing before the bell, and to my horror EVERY kid, K-8 is in their regular clothes - for the first week there they wouldn't have you wear uniforms, and here I come in my stupid navy khakis & white polo. You can imagine I was mortified, had kids from every age group, boy & girl laughing at me because kids are awful of course, and it absolutely set the tone for what would be a pretty crappy year all the way around.

So yeah...I hate private school. I'm willing to be quite public about that.
