My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a PhD student in philosophy, but I don't fit the type very well - I devote a fanatical level of attention to certain sports teams, I go to the gym, and I'm not super awkward. Usually.

Some things about me that are more informative than a list of adjectives: The Princess Bride is among my favorite movies; I've played a few thousand games of online hearts; I won a school championship in beer pong when I was an undergrad; I think Fall Out Boy and The Offspring are genuinely good bands; I've been compiling a list of favorite words for about ten years; I played in the inaugural Dodgeball World Championship; about 1/3-1/2 of my meals are now Soylent (http://www.soylent.me); I'm significantly responsible for the presence of a Chipotle on Thayer (you're welcome, everyone); and I think my life would be a lot better if I could dunk a basketball. I'm from Minnesota and went to college in California.

I tend to like girls who drink whiskey - not sure why. Otherwise, I'm into the usual stuff: intelligence, confidence, enthusiasm, a good (sarcastic) sense of humor. Competitiveness is also a plus.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working on becoming a philosophy professor. In the meantime, I can check out library books for, like, a really long time. Don't act like you're not impressed.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Holding your hand, arranging romantic surprises, being liked by your parents...

Okay, just kidding. I'm good at thinking carefully about things for long periods of time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There are some pictures of me at the top of this page, so you can decide for yourself.

If the "things" are supposed to be personality traits, this is a hard question for me to answer. So hard, in fact, that I'm not going to answer it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I mostly stick to comedies - I like learning things, but not from movies, and I don't really understand why people knowingly subject themselves to unpleasant viewing experiences. Sometimes I do watch action movies (I love the Bourne trilogy), or a thriller if it's really well done (e.g., The Usual Suspects). I also enjoy playing elaborate drinking games to movies that would otherwise suck.

Shows: Mad Men, Friday Night Lights, Archer, House, 30 Rock, House of Lies, Game of Thrones. I liked Boardwalk Empire until a certain character died.

Books: Lucky Jim, Gates of Fire, anything by Neal Stephenson (especially Cryptonomicon), most things by Neil Gaiman, The Moral Animal, the Song of Ice and Fire series. Thinking, Fast and Slow is the best book I've read in the last few years - I highly recommend it if you're interested in being smarter and/or living a better life.

Food: What I eat is pretty much determined by nutritional content; taste is apparently not as important to me as it is to most people.

Songs I will definitely sing/rap if they come on when I'm drunk include Gimme the Loot, Kiss From a Rose, It's Bigger Than Hip-Hop, and any of Nelly's hits. (But notice this is not in the section on things I'm really good at.)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Exercise (preferably basketball), the prospect of traveling someplace interesting, information to process, caffeine, semicolons, and dashes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sports: KU basketball, the Minnesota Timberwolves, Stanford football/basketball, and University of Minnesota basketball. Also fantasy football.

In philosophy my main interests are the nature of morality and how we know things about it. (E.g.: Are there any facts about right and wrong? And if so, what kind of facts are they? Are they like facts about what's pretty, or facts about what's red, or facts about how much mass objects have, or...? And whatever kind of fact they are, how do we know them? We don't seem to be able to see, touch, hear, smell, or taste moral wrongness. Other people tell us about this stuff, but how do they know? More generally, what do the causes of our moral beliefs have to do with the moral facts?) I also taught a class on free will and moral responsibility last year.

And when I'm using this site, I spend a lot of time wondering why so many people appear to Capitalize Words at random.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I dunno. When your sole professional obligation is producing a long document, and there's no specific deadline, Fridays lose a lot of their significance.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I read an enormous amount of sci-fi/fantasy when I was growing up - mostly really bad stuff that I can hardly stand to look at now.
