My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I do the New York Times crossword between sets at the gym. My friends say that about sums me up.

I like to consider myself a good mix of different parts of the country. With a family from Chicago, I've got that Midwestern warmth and kindness and pronounce some vowels strangely. With a four-year stint at college on the East Coast, I've got an intellectual bent. And since I was born and raised in the Bay Area, I can be pretty laid-back and am a fan of soy milk. (Sadly, I have no claim to the South, though my guests would certainly compliment my hospitality and frying skills.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a med school student. Considering that I was a History and Literature major in college, this is a bit of a change.

In a previous life, I helped high school kids get into college. I was basically a surrogate tiger mom.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Kirby's Avalanche, a Tetris rip-off for the Super Nintendo that few people played and even fewer enjoyed.

Also, urban and suburban exploration.

Plus writing and crossword puzzles.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sardonic friends might say people notice my lack of a fashion sense. I disagree. I just value comfort.

People probably notice my smile or my hair first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Master and Margarita, W.H. Auden, Fun Home, Ulysses, the dragon-less parts of A Song of Ice and Fire, Middlemarch, Richard II, As I Lay Dying, Tennessee Williams, the Tennessee Williams-ish parts of To Kill A Mockingbird, some Tennyson, and most Chekhov

(I should be a Philip Roth fan, but I think he's too hard on his mother; This says a great deal about me.)

Movies: Vertigo, Love and Death, I Am Love, All About My Mother, Annie Hall, Little Miss Sunshine, Fargo, A Serious Man, Synecdoche New York, La Dolce Vita, and The Rescuers Down Under

Shows: My television viewing habits vary from the high-brow (Frontline, Nova, Mad Men) to quality escapist fare (The Great British Bake Off, 30 Rock, UnReal) to the nearly unwatchable (Tabitha's Salon Takeover, Groomer Has It—Animal Planet's defunct dog grooming competition).

On the picture-less front: This American Life, In Our Time, Radiolab, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, Planet Money, and Fresh Air.

Music: Piaf, Ellington, Dietrich, Cyndi Lauper, Tchaikovsky, John Adams, Devotchka, Dusty Springfield, Joni Mitchell, Patsy Cline, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, a small group of musicals—my major gay affectation. Sondheim's where it's at, yo

Food: Oh dear. For now I'll say BBQ pork buns. Inquire for the complete list. Let's just say I spend an inordinate amount of time on Yelp. Also, I'm an excellent salad chef and can work wonders with a wok.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and friends
Dogs (a furry subset of above, but worth repeating)
Books
A nice place to run
Pork (I'm a terrible, terrible Jew)
Parentheses
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My classes, food, plotting (mis)adventures, the collegiate murder mystery I'm perpetually co-writing, crossword puzzle answers.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With my friends, probably playing trivia at a bar or suitable location. On occasion, dancing with friends at a club. If all of the above fails, geo-caching.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was a contestant on Family Feud.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are kind, emotionally intelligent, appreciate culture high and low, have a good sense of humor and a general curiosity about the world. Also, a strong commitment to family is always attractive.
