Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm passionate about lists, and some other things.
1. The people I love
2. My career
3. Cookies (they have to be chewy)
4. My dog
5. Playing and listening to music (using the word "musician" very
6. Exercising regularly
7. Good fruit
8. Taking the time to relax
9. Education reform and liberation theology
I grew up in Tennessee, but now consider Philly home. When I'm not
working or at school, I like to be with friends and family, read a
good book, listen to NPR, or do something outside (walking my dog,
going for a run, etc.).
I'm looking for someone who is willing to commit to me and my
(sometimes hectic) schedule. Loyalty and honesty are a must. I also
would like to be with someone who is physically active and likes
(minor) adventures. You should probably not hate my dog.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in a PhD program at U of M.
I also spend a lot of time exercising (swimming, biking, and
running). This does not mean I'm fast. I'm always training for

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, The Little
Prince, A Confederacy of Dunces, The Power of One, The Amazing
Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Born to Run. My favorite writers
are Eggers and Chabon (though nothing else he's written is anywhere
close to as good as Kavalier and Clay). I've been more into
nonfiction lately. I purchase a lot more books than I'm able to
Movies: Rushmore, Spellbound, The Graduate. I typically don't watch
a movie more than once, so I own very few.
Shows: Six Feet Under, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Man vs Wild,
Music: Wilco, Ryan Adams/Whiskeytown, Gillian Welch, Patsy Cline,
Bob Dylan, Elliot Smith, Flaming Lips, Common, Buena Vista Social
Club, The Head and the Heart. The only type of music I universally
dislike is contemporary country.
Food: I like most things, but gravitate towards Asian when given a
choice (sushi, Thai, bibimbap, Indian). Tell me about some good
places to eat around here!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. my water bottle
2. my dog
3. music and books
4. internet access
5. my bikes (I was into cycling even before the hipsters
6. my family and friends, and trips to visit them
7. okay, also chocolate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Food. Societal inequity. Where I'll go on my next vacation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been fired (from a coffee shop) for embezzlement. I still
don't think I really did anything wrong, but *technically*, it was
I am afraid of my basement.
