My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
At heart, I'm an optimistic person who believes you should never stop learning, whether it's about yourself or about the world. A college degree still leaves a lot to be desired.

Relating to that, intelligence is the most attractive quality in a person. You decide what number two is.

I love trying a new thing, even if I decide later it wasn't for me. Some people just drift through life with little more than drunken nights and Will Ferrell movies - not me. Why not do something exciting and different?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I changed careers to web development last year, and just landed a job with a company you probably interact with monthly. Continuing education still takes up a good deal of time these days. I'm also gearing up to move either back to Chicago or Oak Park, and rededicating myself to fitness (P90X + a calorie counting app)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
writing, playing guitar, figuring out what celebrities people look like, problem solving, remembering specific dates (could've made a great history major, if history interested me).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Looks can be deceiving. I've traditionally been Lincoln Park on the outside, Logan Square on the inside (though that gap is closing). Sense of humor would be another one; sometimes so dry, people don't know I'm kidding.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music (current): Flesh Panthers, New Pornographers, J Mascis, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Spoon, Twin Peaks, Jack Ruby, X.
Music (all time): R.E.M., Foo Fighters, PJ Harvey, At The Drive-In, Neko Case, Pixies, Wilco, Husker Du, Radiohead, The Raveonettes, Jesus and Mary Chain, Deerhunter.

I've realized many of my favorite bands are middle-aged power-pop groups who wear their Beatle influences proudly (see: Cheap Trick, Shoes, The Smithereens, The Minus 5). If "uncle rock" is a legitimate genre, put me on the mailing list.

Books: Fight Club, Our Band Could Be Your Life, 1984, American Psycho, Tipping the Velvet. Currently reading: "Fast Machine" by Elizabeth Ellen. Feminist literature is up next, starting with The Feminine Mystique.

Films: Help!, Good Will Hunting, Tourfilm, No Country For Old Men, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive and Lost Highway (really, anything David Lynch has done). Happiness is also a favorite, so if you've seen others by Todd Solondz, go ahead and send me a recommendation in all caps to convince me it's a must-see.

TV: Arrested Development, Weeds, Mad Men, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Seinfeld will never be topped.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
besides money, oxygen, water and love?

music
exercise
Twitter (for news...seriously)
well-written software documentation
sunglasses
toothpaste or mints
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why moderate voices are getting shunned on both sides in favor of extremist howling when it comes to politics and social issues. Critical thinking is now automatically "tone policing" or "derailing" (people need to look up what the latter word means). Even the good guys go too far sometimes.

Lighter things too, like guacamole. Oh guac, how I love thee.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
probably catching a scuzzed-out garage rock show with friends, either at a bar or a basement venue.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm temporarily living with my dad. It was necessary to move back home in order to expedite the career change mentioned above. I just started a new job after Labor Day and it's looking like a late September/October move-out date. It's not a secret, so I guess it's not that private, but I wouldn't feel right about omitting that part.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- There's something you're extremely passionate about, even if i don't share that same passion. Tell me all about it and why you consider it as essential as breathing.

- You have tattoos. Combine that with glasses and a love for music/film/books, and you've got a pretty good thing going.

- You want to do things that don't involve alcohol. Believe me, I'm not a prude or a priest, and you can't argue with a well-crafted beer, but there's so much more to do in the Chicago area beyond bar hopping.

- Apathy toward professional sports isn't a turn-off for you. I like playing sports just fine, but watching them isn't my thing. Some guys can find other ways to be manly.
