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. Not to be too negative, but 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 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

Looks can be deceiving. Think Lincoln Park on the outside, Logan Square on the inside (though that gap is closing).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music is my biggest passion. In the current rotation: Flesh Panthers, New Pornographers, J Mascis, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Spoon, PJ Harvey (an all-time favorite). I live and die for indie rock and punk, although you can't argue with a good pop song. I've realized my favorite bands are middle-aged power-pop groups who wear their Beatle influences proudly (see: Cheap Trick, Shoes, Smithereens, The Minus 5). If "uncle rock" is a legitimate genre, put me on the mailing list.

My favorite author is Chuck Palahniuk, but my #1 book is Michael Azzerad's "Our Band Could Be Your Life." Looking to read more by Sarah Waters after loving "Tipping the Velvet." Currently reading: "Fast Machine" by Elizabeth Ellen.

Besides the obvious guy favorites in Fight Club and Shawshank Redemption, favorite films would have to include 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.

I like my TV on DVD: Arrested Development, Weeds, Mad Men, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and The League. 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?

plaid
sunglasses

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What word or phrase entering the dictionary will spell out the beginning of the end for humanity? My vote goes to "thigh gap".
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 dive 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 (only another month or two). It was a necessary move back home in order to leave my last job and focus full-time on the whole self-taught career change thing. Just got a job offer (Aug 18) and will move out in late September, most likely. 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.
a) 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.

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

c) 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.

d) 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.
