My self-summary
Equally value dumb fun as I do depth of thought. More important than intelligence though to me is emotional IQ; I think compassion and empathy are some of the most important qualities in a person.
I'm not a huge online communicator (also a luddite in general) and think you can know more about someone from 5 minutes of meeting them in person than through hours of instant messaging or emailing so by far prefer the former.
Like most of us, I think this self summary crap sucks. For me, that's mostly because I find it hard to express how magical/awesome/exciting I find...well, most things...to be. It would be great to find someone who is a combination of easily excitable, curious and thoughtful. Even/especially if it's just a friendship.
I am super allergic to cliches/most people who use them (tho i've met a few exceptions, the key word being few) . Especially those of the "work hard, play hard" variety that are oh-so-common here on OkC. Ick. Bleh. If it's not worth saying...then, well, it's not worth saying...
What I’m doing with my life
I read books n' shit. No really, I get paid to do that. Crazy, right?
Otherwise, trying to move a lot. Being outside generally translates into my being happy.
I’m really good at
Thinking I'm really bad at things
Admittedly I'm a bit turned off by people who answer this question seriously and/or with a long list of things they are really good at. A little bit of humility goes a Long way in my book.
Oh and I'm really good at being judgmental. I didn't say I was proud of it, but I am good at it...
The first things people usually notice about me
I look like a giraffe, i.e., my neck is very long.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
ALL food. And too much of the other stuff to get into...I mean I read for a living and I have a movie club on the side...I can really geek out on that other stuff. I will say it's a wide range of high brow to super low brow. Like SUPER low. Shockingly low.
The six things I could never do without
I'm fairly resilient, try me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
thinking
On a typical Friday night I am
Hugging trees.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not that private but if your profile pictures include selfies or shirtless photos, chances are I feel embarrassed for you.

On the privater side, lately I keep listening to this on repeat and wanting to cry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Qx2lMaMsl8&feature=kp it's just so goddamn beautiful....what do you know, I am a softie afterall...
You should message me if
You want to treat someone (me) awesomely and be awesomely treated :) I know what I want, have a lot to offer, and am not interested in settling for less.
That includes friends too. I value quality over quantity by far, and like people who are true to themselves and their word (i.e. not flaky).
