My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If you caught the haiku above, you win a prize. Pat yourself on the back and feel happy I think you're clever, but I suppose that implies I think I'm clever too. Conceit!

I'm (almost) 22 years old, live alone with my dog (who's the most perfect dog to be born, ever. Period.) I'm originally from Tennessee, although I moved to NYC to take a job doing web development and lived there for a year (in the East Village) before I moved here.

I'm currently overweight and if that's an issue, that's just too bad. I'm losing it, slowly but surely, and I'm down almost 25 pounds when I write this, so I'm noticeably thinner than in the picture. Eventually, I hope to be at a normal weight for the first time in my life. I was always the fat kid :'(

I'm a big geek in a lot of ways, but not in others. I do enjoy the internet a lot, but spend a fair amount of time outdoors and spending time with friends. Given that I've only lived in Champaign since February, I spend less time hanging out than I would like, but such is life.

I'm a huge dog person, too. I have a White German Shepherd puppy named Emma that I adopted at the beginning of May and she means the world to me. I have a whole huge diatribe why White Shepherds are the best dogs on the planet, but I won't paste it here; you know how to get it if you want it. For the foreseeable future, she'll be always by my side as she means the world to me.

I am thinking just 3words, say nada bout some1, and section is silly
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I currently work for Wolfram Research as a software developer, so I'm working on my career there. I dropped out of college after two semesters and spent a lot of time and effort getting my foot in the door and teaching myself how to engineer software and it's a matter of pride to me that I am where I am today without having finished college. I don't have any plans or intentions of drastically changing my career, since I love what I do and I'm great at it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Arguing: I love to argue, but in a friendly sort of give-your-brain-a-workout sort of way. I see opinions as liquid things that need to be reinforced over time and if you can't defend your opinion, you must not hold it very well.

Going with the flow: my life's been a veritable rollercoaster and I've learned to let things happen as they do and just deal with things as they happen. Like my neighbor likes to say "nothing is a big deal to you," which is something I look at positively.

Being friendly: I'm always there for my friends, in any regard. I've no problems buying groceries or paying for a friend's car to be fixed if they need that just as much as I'm always available to chat on the phone (or in person) for an hour or two, if someone needs that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really have no idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
TV: GLEE! (seriously, I love that shit), Community, How I Met Your Mother, Stargate and a whole bunch of other shit that I half-watch. Chances are, if you watch it, I have too at some length.

Music: way too many to mention here, but my favorite artists are Bon Iver, Explosions in the Sky and The Tallest Man on Earth. The Glee soundtracks get a lot of "airtime" too. If you want to stalk what I'm listening to, how much I listen to what or otherwise geek out at music stat overload, check me out on at

Movies: I can usually find something to appreciate in any movie, whether it's the break neck action in the Bourne Trilogy, the totally badass effects in Avatar, the emotional heartbreak in Mysterious Skin, the cinematography in 2001 or Citizen Kane, or anything else. I'm a media junkie, so I've seen a lot of films and my taste has become such that I like to just watch a well done movie, whether it's well done for the fact that it's acted well and the story is impeccable (the most recent one that comes to mind is Crazy Heart), or it's so over the top and ridiculous, it's enjoyable a la The Human Centipede.

Food: I love food; all of it. Fat kid, remember?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My dog
2. My job/hobby (they're the same !!! GEEK ALERT !!!)
3. Silly questions that attempt to quantify otherwise unquantifiable aspects of someone's personality.
4. Music; if you know what "what" is, you know what I mean.
5. My family. I have a great relationship with my siblings and parents and love to talk to them and spend time with them.
6. Sleep. Love that shit.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything! I'm an overthinker that likes to analyze everything to the point of absurdity, having contingency plans for every possible scenario.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing with my dog! She's a little perpetual motion machine that has more go than a functional programming club on a Google campus (har har) and tires me out, but I love playing with her.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know. My life is an open book, so there's very little variance in "privacy" as far as aspects of myself are concerned. Feel free to ask anything and be assured you'll get an honest answer.

You got some of the ultra-lame jokes above, or if you want to, or any other reason. But especially if you can find grammatical errors!
